Zendaya has responded to Lindsay Lohan’s comments about the Cinderella-inspired gown she wore to the 2019 Met Gala.
The Mean Girls actress was unimpressed by the light-up Tommy Hilfiger ballgown that the Spider-Man: Far From Home star wore to the prestigious fashion event in May, and noted in a scathing post on Instagram that Claire Danes wore a similar style to the bash three years ago.
Commenting on an image of Zendaya on the social media site, Lindsay raged: “Claire Danes did that with @ZacPosen already.”
The 32-year-old then addressed the Homeland star directly, and complimented Claire while throwing shade at Zendaya.
“@ClaireDanes, you wore this dress so beautifully,” she added. “I don’t know why someone thinks that they can be more chic. Ever.”
More than a month after wearing the stunning dress at the Met Gala, Zendaya has finally responded to The Parent Trap star’s criticism.
“I didn’t feel hurt by it and it didn’t make me sad because I have no idea what that person is going through,” she told British newspaper The Daily Telegraph. “Maybe in some strange way, that comment made them feel better that day. People are only negative because negativity is eating away at them.”
Zendaya’s stylist Law Roach, who was dressed as the Fairy Godmother at the Met Gala and waved a magic wand to light up the 22-year-old’s dress on the red carpet, previously had his say on Lindsay’s words.
“I don’t know her,” he fired to reporters at Entertainment Tonight.
Zendaya’s fans also came to her defence on social media, with one asking Lindsay, who has not attended fashion’s biggest night since 2007: “What did you wear to the Met?”
