Sarah Jessica Parker

We knew we could count on fashion-girl Sarah Jessica Parker to fully embody the ‘Punk: Chaos to Couture’ theme of the 2013 Met Gala in New York City on Monday.

Making one of the most grand and unforgettable entrances of the evening, SJP’s look was head-and-shoulders above the rest—literally.

She donned a paint-splattered, gold-leaf gown from the Giles Fall 2013 collection, but she added far more theatrics to the abstract-printed runway look with a custom Philip Treacy headpiece.

Rather than coax her hair into a mohawk, she crowned her locks with this radical fascinator and, in so doing, cemented her status as the punk-belle of the ball.

With the voluminous, high-low cut of the dress, her very-visible, over-the-knee Christian Louboutin velvet boots would have been a talking point, if it weren’t for that ‘hawk.

The same goes for her Fred Leighton jewels. No amount of sparkle could compete with the glinting gold of that hat or the gown.

Whew! Did SJP blow you away with her ferocious, no-holds-barred look?
