An awkward moment between Stella McCartney and Chloe Fineman from the 2023 Met Gala has gone viral.
The designer, 51, was interviewed by the SNL comedian, 34, who served as a red carpet co-host for Tonight’s Vogue, along with Derek Blasberg.
They were joined by actresses Aubrey Plaza and Madeline Klein — whom McCartney wore to the event — during the live broadcast, and things quickly got awkward.
At one point, McCartney called Feynman out for laughing during the interview, and asked her, “Don’t you take this seriously?”
‘I am!’ Feynman replied, and McCartney replied, “I think it’s very dangerous.”
Many fans called the interview “embarrassing” and “embarrassing” but others insisted that all the ladies were in on the joke and were simply being sarcastic.
The interview began with Fineman introducing the guests as McCartney and Cline, but did not call the White Lotus star by her real name, instead introducing Plaza as Audrey.
The actress then provided her own last name, calling herself “Slotburn”.
The two have a history together and have appeared on Saturday Night Live together on a number of occasions.
Then Veneman inquired about McCartney’s look for the evening—a structured blazer dress and shimmering silver stockings—to which Stella dryly replied, ‘It’s a look. And that’s all there is to it.
The tense atmosphere continued after Plaza described her white dress as “Stella McCartney”.
“It’s amazing, isn’t it?” McCartney replied.
Plaza went, “That’s right, sustainable Stella,” and added the British designer, “McCartney.”
After Plaza responded, Feynman and Blasberg began laughing, at which point McCartney called her and asked if she was not taking the interview seriously.
“No, I — I’m going to be more serious,” Feynman replied, as she and Blasberg attempted to change the subject.
Fineman proceeded to ask McCartney about when she took over the Chloe brand, after Karl Lagerfeld’s departure in 1997.
This year, the theme for the ball is Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty. The late German designer was Chanel’s longtime creative director. He passed away at the age of 85 in 2019.
Then the mood eased, as McCartney – daughter of Beatle legend Paul McCartney and photographer Linda McCartney – recalled an anecdote about Lagerfeld.
“My favorite moment of it — when I felt like I really arrived — is when Carl found out I had taken over as successor to the brand. His quote was, ‘I knew they were going to take on a big name when I left a brand, but I thought it was going to be a big name in fashion, not in music. “
Feynman replied, “Burn!” While Blasberg added, “The King of One-Linings!”
“I loved it,” McCartney said of Fossil, “I was like, ‘Uh, Karl Lagerfeld knows who I am’.”
Plaza and Klein – who were the first to attend the event – both looked amazing.
Plaza hit the red carpet in a white, off-the-shoulder dress designed by McCartney with a funky slit running diagonally across her chest.
The opening was marked with a shimmering silver material that also fell on her back and fell on her hip.
The actress pulled her black hair into a bun while wearing diamond teardrop earrings from EFFY Jewelry.
Cline dazzled in a sparkly black dress with silver embellishments, while Fineman dazzled in a pink dress with a black floral neckline.
