Nina Dobrev, Cameron Diaz Dish on Met Gala Dress Difficulties

05/10/2012 at 06:00 PM ET

Nina Dobrev and Cameron Diaz both looked stunning at Monday night’s Met Gala — but there’s a lot of difficulty involved in looking so good.

“It was so form fitted and made of vintage gold metal, and so tight. It was beautiful,” Dobrev said of her Donna Karan Atelier gown while speaking to Conan O’Brien Wednesday. “They literally had to sew me into it so everything fit and then they sent me off!”

The talk show host called the whole fiasco “medieval,” and asked how the Vampire Diaries star was able to go to the bathroom. “You call the designer and they have an emergency sewing kit, they cut you out of it, and then they’ll sew you back in,” she explained, adding that she tried to avoid bathroom breaks all night but eventually had to give in. “You write on your phone, ‘It’s go time. Now,'” she joked.

Diaz didn’t have any bathroom emergencies on Met Ball night, but she was carrying some extra weight. “That was a 22-pound dress!” the actress told Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday. “It was heavvvy.”

What added such heft to the gold Stella McCartney gown? Rhinestones. “It was just strips and strips of rhinestones,” Diaz explained. “[Stella] sends me this email on Friday, like ‘Babe, your dress might be a little heavy.’ I put it on … for the last alteration and it’s 30 pounds. We managed to cut eight pounds out of that dress. My knees are so sore today!”

That’s so rediculous! I am not saying you always have to be 100% comfortable (any woman who wears heels knows that) but these two are too much, a dress that you can’t go to the bathroom in? A dress that weighs like a one year old? Idiots.

Oops, typo – it’s ridiculous, I know…
