Some people sneak their own candy and popcorn into the movie theater. Chloe Fineman wears her snacks on her sleeve. On Sunday, the hilarious “Saturday Night Live” star arrived at the 2022 MTV VMAs in a dress lined with gumballs, lentils, rock candy, M&M’s, and licorice — not a bad snack haul for a three-hour award show. Designed by fashion label threeASFOUR and Instacart as part of the brand’s “The World is Your Cart” campaign, Fineman’s floor-length dress featured a futuristic design composed of holographic vinyl, holographic PU, silver nylon, metallic organza, organdy, duchess satin, and polyfil — inspired by snack packaging — and embellished with edible decor.
“@instacart is helping me sneak snacks into the #vmas! Operation Cart Couture . . . let’s go!” she captioned a behind-the scenes clip of herself getting ready on Instagram Stories. In true haute couture fashion, the otherworldly dress included a thigh-high slit and a voluminous train draped in jelly bean-shaped pouches stuffed with chips, candy, and dried fruit. The comedian layered the dress under a matching cropped jacket with statement sleeves that coiled past her shoulders in ice-cream-like swirls of orange and silver.
Fineman styled the look with a shimmering rhinestone handbag and strappy heeled sandals that showed off her chrome pedicure. During the IGS clip, Fineman also shared a glimpse at her matching silver manicure, adorned with dangling carrot nail jewelry. Like Gemma Chan before her, Fineman’s award show look was the perfect vessel for treats to snack on in between the night’s incredible performances.
