Laura Dern Said Her ‘Big Little Lies’ Character Would Wear This to the Met Gala

So what would Renata Klein wear to the Met Gala if she had the chance?

“She would wear a woman designer, definitely,” Laura Dern told Footwear News about her “Big Little Lies” character. “She would come and wear Gabriela Hearst.”

The actress herself was on hand Monday night for The Costume Institute Benefit to celebrate the exhibition “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between.” Dern walked the carpet with the designer of her navy cut-out dress by her side, which happened to be Gabriela Hearst.

On the HBO hit show, which ended last month, Dern gave a memorable performance as Renata Klein, a career-driven CEO mother. Her character often dressed in Alaia, Stella McCartney and Roland Mouret.

Based on the luxury-designer ensembles she wore in the town of Monterey, Calif., it probably wouldn’t have been questioned if Renata had attended the Met Gala.

And for fans wondering if there will be a second season of “Big Little Lies,” you’re in luck. According to star and executive producer Reese Witherspoon, who also walked the Met Gala red carpet on Monday, the idea has come up.

“We are thinking about Season 2. We are talking to Nicole Kidman, we are talking to David E. Kelley, and we are talking to Laine Moriarty,” she said on the carpet. (Kidman also starred in and produced the show, which was based off Moriarty’s best-selling book.)

Other “Big Little Lies” cast members at the Met Gala included Zöe Kravitz and Alexander Skarsgård.
