Jodie Turner-Smith opened up about her “deliberately bridal” look at the 2024 MET Gala earlier Monday – which referenced her split from ex-husband Joshua Jackson.

The Queen & Slim actress, 37 – who stole the show in a custom Burberry dress on the red carpet – took to her main Instagram page on Wednesday to discuss the inspirations behind the dress.

Notably, she wore a sleeveless ensemble that featured 150,000 faux pearls as well as a sheer floral overlay that flowed down into a long train, according to Vogue.

The beauty wore a long cross necklace and a dazzling bracelet while holding a floral piece in her hand. Jodie also debuted short blonde locks at the star-studded event.

“This Met Gala was very special to me…it was my first time going out alone,” Turner-Smith wrote in the lengthy caption.

Just two years earlier, in 2022, she attended the MET Gala for the first time alongside her ex Joshua Jackson. However, she notably filed for divorce from the actor last year, in October 2023.

She continued: “I had a lot of thoughts after reading the short story that the theme was based on… but what I took away from it was the desire to represent both the power of nature and its delicacy.”

“In nature, death is both an end *and* a beginning. when you prune what is dead, new buds are free to grow.

Jodie paid tribute to designer Daniel Lee and wrote: “So fitting that the dress #DanielLee designed for me, full of English flowers, is deliberately bridal. white, representing a rebirth. a good start.

“A recommitment to the most important relationship I will ever have, the relationship from which all others grow: my relationship with myself.”

The Anne Boleyn star added: “It is by loving and honoring myself that I am able to love and honor my daughter and teach her to do the same.”

She expressed positively: “I am always evolving, always growing, always starting…and FREE, to love better, stronger, more fiercely and fearlessly than ever before.

‘ENDLESS THANK YOU, @burberry, for your support, creativity and love. I can’t wait to see what happens next…!!!!!’

The British-born actress included a variety of photos taken during the special evening, including shots of herself posing up a storm on the red carpet.

Turner-Smith also took a few photos inside the venue and was seen taking a selfie with designer and Burberry CCO Daniel Lee.

After the event, Jodie quickly changed her outfit and showed off her toned figure in a yellow crop top along with a matching mini skirt.

She joined Daniel Lee, Naomi Campbell and Chioma Nandi to host an after party at Caviar Kaspia in the Big Apple.

In late October last year, Jodie filed for divorce from Joshua Jackson after four years of marriage, citing “irreconcilable differences.” At the time, the split reportedly left the Fringe actor “heartbroken.”

The former couple married in 2019 and welcomed their first and only child together in April 2020. Amid their divorce, the two stars agreed to share custody of their daughter named Juno.

Shortly after filing for divorce, a source told People that Jodie made the decision to do so because “she decided she was done,” and added that “they are on life paths very different”.

The insider said, “It turned into an unhealthy marriage that made her unhappy,” but explained the couple would still focus on co-parenting their daughter. “They want it to continue to thrive.”

Earlier this year, in February, Turner-Smith broke her silence on the divorce during an interview with Sunday Times Style. “Sometimes the things we really want to work on just don’t work. »

“And it’s good. The most important thing is that you choose what is healthiest for you and your family and certainly for your children.

“There are so many different times in our lives where we look at ourselves and say, ‘Who am I and am I true to that?’ »

The actress later told the outlet, “The bravest thing in the world is recognizing when something isn’t working and taking action, and I always want to set that kind of example for my daughter.”

“The bottom line is that this is as much love and joy as it always was. It’s simply about taking a step forward towards a better life for everyone involved.

Jackson has since moved on with Black Panther actress Lupita Nyong’o – with the pair first linked in October at a Janelle Monae concert in Los Angeles.

Two months later, in December, it was confirmed that they were officially. Back in March, Joshua and Lupita were spotted sharing a passionate kiss during a getaway to Mexico.

“When I first attended the MET Gala, I remember thinking, ‘Oh my God, I never want to do that.’ I didn’t feel good. I didn’t feel the vibe.

She continued: “I remember a moment when my husband took my hand and said, ‘You deserve to be here.’
