At the event on Monday, Sept. 13, the TikTok dancer climbed the steps of the Met in a vintage gown from Tom Ford for Gucci. The silky red dress had a figure-hugging bodice and a flowing train, reminding fans of a look the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star wore to Kris Jenner's 2019 Christmas Eve party.
On social media, numerous people assumed that the 20-year-old actress had borrowed the dress from her 42-year-old friend ahead of the Gala. However, Kourtney's festive holiday gown was clearly not the same one Addison posed in, as the mother of three's ensemble was strapless.
Those people were not wrong to compare the two looks though, since they came from the same fall/winter 2003 collection.
Once on the carpet, she told Vogue that she and stylist Law Roach were dead-set on having her wear this dress because Tom Ford is known to "empower women," according to People. "I wanted to pay homage to that."
And that blonde hairdo was intentional too. Her hairstylist Adir Abergel said that the natural brunette wanted to emulate the models from Tom Ford for Gucci's early 2000s campaigns. "When you look at all of the Gucci references during the Tom Ford era, everything had a certain sleekness that exuded freedom," Adir explained. "Tom knew how to bring strength and confidence with his clothes to make a woman feel sexy. That's exactly what I wanted to do with the hair."
