Emma Stone turns damsel in distress as her frock rips at Met Gala after-party

London: Emma Stone, who turned heads on the red carpet in a gorgeous Lanvin frock at New York’s Met Gala on Tuesday, suffered a fashion disaster after she discovered a hole in her couture dress as she headed to an after party.

The 23-year-old actress was joined by Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz, who looked on with horror at the rip in her expensive creation.

The ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ star was forced to cover up the tear, just below the zip fastening, with a patent maroon coat as she arrived at a bar to carry on festivities, the Daily Mail reported.

She donned satin black pumps from the Hiver 2011 Runway Collection and painted her nails turquoise to complete her look, along with an intricate up do featuring a large hair brooch.

The red-head was attending a the after-party for the Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

Her boyfriend Andrew Garfield, who plays the protagonist in her upcoming movie, was nowhere to be seen as she handled the fashion drama.

Emma should have seen the malfunction happen as she was spotted fussing around with her clothing earlier on the main venue steps.

Actresses Rashida Jones and Leslie Mann were helping her stay in her intricate frock but their efforts turned out to be in vain.
