The “Mean Girls” star apparently took issue with Zendaya’s fairy tale moment on the red carpet ― Disney princesses are a sore subject for Lohan ― and accused the 22-year-old of trying to imitate Claire Danes on the red carpet.
Danes famously wore a glow-in-the-dark Zac Posen ballgown for the “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology” theme at the gala in 2016.
“Claire Danes did that with @zacposen already,” Lohan, who hasn’t attended the event since 2007, commented on a photo of Zendaya’s light-up dress Tuesday. “@clairedanes you wore this dress so beautifully, I don’t know why someone thinks that they can be more chic. Ever.”
Zendaya admittedly pulled off a similar effect on Monday, but gave the look a magical twist with clear references (the choker! the hair! the pouffy sleeves!) to Cinderella.
The “Spider-Man: Far From Home” star even took her Met Gala moment to the next level with some inspired red carpet stunts ― like an assist from her fairy godstylist Law Roach, who made her dress illuminate with the flick of a wand, and a glass slipper left on the carpet.
Zendaya has yet to respond to the dig, but she’s sitting comfortably atop a host of best-dressed lists for the three outfits she sported over the course of the evening.
Lohan, meanwhile, clearly had Disney on her mind Tuesday night as she posted about her favorite topic: campaigning to star as Ariel in the live-action “Little Mermaid” movie.
Since Ariel is not a Marvel property and no one was giving mermaid vibes on the carpet, some fans believe the post was another dig at Zendaya, who at one point was rumored to play the character in Disney’s re-imagining of the classic story.
So not fetch, Lindsay.
