Oscar-winning actress Emma Stone had to be 'sewn back into' gown after she broke it dancing to 'I'm Just Ken'

Oscar-winning actress Emma Stone had to be 'sewn back into' her Louis Vuitton gown after she was forced to get up on stage to pick up her prize with a broken zipper which she had 'busted' during Ryan Gosling's performance of 'I'm Just Ken'.



Emma Stone had to be "sewn back into" her Oscars dress after she "busted" it dancing to 'I'm Just Ken'.

The 35-year-old screen star attended the 96th Academy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night (10.03.24) wearing a cream Louis Vuitton gown and she had to take to the stage to pick up her Best Actress prize with the back gaping open after she broke the zipper during Ryan Gosling's performance of his 'Barbie' song 'I'm Just Ken'.

Emma started her acceptance speech by turning around and pointing out the damage, telling the audience at the Dolby Theater: "My dress is broken. I think it happened during 'I'm Just Ken'."

After picking up her award for her role in 'Poor Things', Emma then had to be "sewn back into" the dress before stepping inside the press room for her backstage interviews.

During her time in front of journalists, Emma was asked for an update on the frock and she said: "They sewed me back in. Right when I came back they sewed me back in, which was wonderful.

"I genuinely think I busted it during 'I'm Just Ken'. I was so amazed by Ryan and what he was doing and that number just blew my mind and I was right there and I was going for it and you know, things happen."

The big win marked Emma's second Oscar seven years after winning the Best Actress gong for ' La La Land' and she saw off competition from Annette Bening ('Nyad'), Lily Gladstone ('Killers of the Flower Moon'), Sandra Huller ('Anatomy of a Fall'), and Carey Mulligan ('Maestro').

She said in her speech: "This is really overwhelming. My voice is also a little gone, whatever. The women on the stage, you are all incredible and the women in this category.

"Sandra, Annette, Carey, Lily, I share this with you. I'm in awe of you and it has been such an honour to do all this together and I hope we get to continue to do this together."
