Emma Stone’s Jumpsuit Was Our Favorite Wearable Trend at the Met Gala — Get the Look!
In a sea of wild and crazy "camp" looks, our girl Emma Stone shone bright in a trend we can all actually wear.
This year's Met Gala didn't have Rihanna (boo!) but it did have Cinderella Zendaya, Disney villain-like Cardi B, four outfit changes for Lady Gaga, and a whole lot of pretty in pink, just like the Academy Awards red carpet earlier this year. So while she didn't go over the top in the sea of camp, we sure thought Emma Stone shone bright in her Louis Vitton jumpsuit, and we're dying to steal her style.
The theme for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute annual benefit, the Met Gala, in 2019 was "Camp: Notes on Fashion," referencing Susan Sontag's 1964 essay "Notes on Camp." It had the Twitterverse wildly debating what constituted "camp" and what didn't. Ahem, Jenner sisters, while finally going all out for the pink carpet, were they camp? The debate rages on. Janelle Monae, of course, killed it. In her essay Sontag says, "Indeed the essence of Camp is its love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration. And Camp is esoteric — something of a private code, a badge of identity even, among small urban cliques." She lists Tiffany lamps, Swan Lake, women's clothes of the 1920s, and the old Flash Gordon comics as examples of camp.
On the spectrum of last night's camp, you have Katy Perry's full-on chandelier Halloween costume on one side, and Emma Stone's sparkly Louis Vitton tuxedo-style jumpsuit on the other. We don't think we'll be walking down the street in Perry's look, but Stone's we can take right off the Met Gala's iconic pink carpet and wear it to our next big event. We already know you can wear a jumpsuit to every event on your calendar, but Emma is really showing us how to make it work for even the most formal of formal events. Hello, fall wedding season!
We scoured our favorite retailers to find looks that mimic Emma Stone's formal jumpsuit look. There are some splurges, some saves; some bold, some more subdued. Now all you need is a statement belt and a crazy good sparkly cat-eye.
