Emma Stone’s 2024 Oscars dress ripped at the seams — and she says Ryan Gosling is to blame!

At the 96th annual Academy Awards on Sunday, Stone, 35, took the stage to accept the Oscar win for Best Actress, and kicked off her speech by revealing that she suffered a wardrobe malfunction on her way up to the stage.

“Oh boy. My dress is broken,” the star began, turning around to reveal a broken zipper on her custom mint Louis Vuitton gown.

According to Stone, the mishap occurred as her La La Land costar performed his epic Barbie ballad.

“I think it happened during 'I'm Just Ken.’ I’m pretty sure,” she added as the audience cheered and whooped.

Stone also warned the crowd that her voice is “a little gone” — which may have been the result of her scream-singing the lyric “And so am I!” after Gosling passed her the mic during the ballad.

Prior to her zipper malfunction, Stone, who won Best Actress for her role as Bella Baxter in Poor Things, turned heads on the red carpet with her Oscars look — a strapless, silk jacquard gown with a stunning architectural peplum skirt.

When asked about the mint-colored dress — the crowning jewel of her memorable award-season style run — during the E! red carpet pre-show, Stone told host Laverne Cox, “I don’t even know how to explain it.”

The actress’ stylist Petra Flannery, paired the gown with a 30-carat yellow diamond necklace, also from Louis Vuitton, while her hair stylist, Mara Roszak, took inspiration from the "classic architecture" of her dress.

Like his La La Land costar, Gosling also rocked a head-turning look at the Sunday ceremony.

While serenading Stone and the rest of the Oscars audience with “I’m Just Ken,” the actor nodded to both Barbie and another blonde icon, Marilyn Monroe, in a hot-pink, bedazzled suit.

The actor’s custom Gucci suit, along with the outfits worn by his background dancers and fellow Kens — Scott Evans, Simu Liu, Kingsley Ben-Adir and Ncuti Gatwa — appeared to be nods to one of Monroe’s most iconic on-screen moments.

From Gosling’s Barbie-pink gloves to the dancers’ bow ties and striped shirts, the costuming was nearly identical to the Gentlemen Prefer Blondes scene in which Monroe performs "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend.”
