Karlie Kloss’ Red Wine Spill: Cuts Dress in Half at Met Gala

While Claire Danes and her Zac Posen dress obviously won the “Manus x Machina: Fashion in the Age of Technology” theme at this year’s Met Gala, we think Karlie Kloss deserves an award for the way she handled a fashion emergency.

Karlie looked ethereal in all-white as she stepped out for the cameras at the 2016 Met Gala.

Karlie, who got a butt slap on the red carpet from her cheeky (pun intended) model friend Irina Shayk, shed layers from her dress one at a time.

The top model started out with a turtleneck cape cover-up before arriving on the red carpet.

Then, she revealed the sexy cutout underneath right before she slashed her skirt off at her thighs. The gorgeous white dress was from designer Brandon Maxwell.

After we noticed Karlie’s dress after party skirt wasn’t even hemmed, we dug around to find out what happened.

As it turns out, Brandon Maxwell’s creation took a little wine spill, which led to this unplanned beauty.

Karlie also switched from her white Giuseppe Zanotti “Anne” sandals — which were mostly hidden under the original long hemline of her dress anyway — to a pair of black Olgana Paris “La Delicate” heels.

If you ask us, her outfit would have been much better had she decided to stick to her gorgeous Giuseppe Zanotti pair.

The supermodel also switched from a Lisa Perry clutch to a Jimmy Choo one and wore jewelry from Repossi and Kwiat.

Luckily for us, Karlie documented her entire behind-the-scenes with designer Brandon Maxwell.

“We’re cutting my dream Cinderella gown. Weeks and weeks making this dress …!” “This is a bad idea, or maybe it’s brilliant. I don’t know,” Karlie shared.

“To drinking and cutting,” Brandon Maxwell quipped about her red wine spill. “We were going to change dresses for the afterparty,” Karlie added, “but instead, we’re just cutting this dress.”

As it turns out, there was a spare dress in case anything was spilled on the one Karlie was wearing, so we’re not sure why she opted for the scissors.

Maybe she felt like going a bit sexier for the night? Not that her dress didn’t have enough cut-outs in it already.
