When it comes to red carpet dressing I would like to call myself a traditionalist.

Gowns should be worn to the Oscars and the Opera, but I have to admit I love that Chloe Sevigny and Ginnifer Goodwin broke the rules.

If anyone can get away with breaking the rules it these two.

At the Metropolitan Opera Gala Premiere of ‘Armida’ last night they both opted for black pants.

Chloe opted to style her wide legged jumpsuit as it appeared the YSL Fall 2010 runway with long black gloves and a long gold chain.

Her red lips added a touch of colour.

Ginnifer also opted for chunky gold jewelery to go with her black YSL Edition Soir 2010 bustier and tuxedo pants.

Her pop of colour came via her purple YSL clutch and matching strappy sandals.

Of the two Ginnifer is rockin’ my world.
