Sarah Jessica Parker In Giles – 2013 Met Gala

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?

  4. june May 7, 2013 at 03:53 #

    this is pretty much one of the few outfits where i actually sat back and said, “now *this* actually embodies punk”

  5. Poppy May 7, 2013 at 03:54 #

    I love this!

  6. Anj May 7, 2013 at 03:54 #

    This woman should be crowned the Queen of this year’s MET Gala if she didn’t already have her own head gear. This look embodies not only the theme but the creative extravagance this event should have. This looks is perfection and I love it!

  7. Nat May 7, 2013 at 03:54 #

    LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS! FACT Only she can pull this off.

  8. Yeliz May 7, 2013 at 03:59 #

    This is too theatrical for me. I love the gown, but I don’t love her whole look.

  9. Fashionmint May 7, 2013 at 04:02 #

    this is what is actual representation of PUNK..love it from H2T

  10. Pedro May 7, 2013 at 04:07 #

    EPIC!

    I can’t express how much i LOVE this look.

    Perfection from H2T

    BDOTY for sure.

    Grinning from ear to ear. THIS is the craziness and punk-chic that the gala needed. LOVING IT!

  12. Marybeth May 7, 2013 at 04:12 #

    Far too costumey and try-too-hard.
    I like the dress but she’s killed it with her hysterical styling.

  13. Lyo May 7, 2013 at 04:12 #

    Dress is AMAZING! The shoes are AMAZING!!! But I’m not fond of the headpiece. She doesn’t need it.

  14. Milla B. May 7, 2013 at 04:12 #

    OMG I loved it. Finally some strong look that I’m not going to forget at end of night. This is the Met Gala for God’s sake. Go big or go home !

  15. Mimi May 7, 2013 at 04:14 #

    My first reaction to this was “ALL HAIL THE QUEEN” this is just MET perfection

  16. Jamie Sanford May 7, 2013 at 04:17 #

    SJP wins the Met Gala! She looks amazing. BDOTY nominee.

  17. Lily May 7, 2013 at 04:21 #

    Love love love. She nailed punk + couture + something special for the Met Gala. Only SJP, Miley, Madonna and a couple of others understood the theme, making them, in my opinion, by far the best dressed of the night.

  18. Prudence May 7, 2013 at 04:24 #

    THIS IS THE NUMBER ONE LOOK OF THE NIGHT! THIS 50 YEAR OLD WOMAN PUT EVERYONE TO SHAME ON THE RED CARPET, SHE KILLED IT LIKE NO TOMORROW, BDOTW WITHOUT A DOUBT, BEST OF THE EVENT OF COURSE AND DEFFS A CONTENDER FOR BDOTY. SJP, WE BOW DOWN TO YOU!

  19. Sally May 7, 2013 at 04:32 #

    Love the dress and head piece, but the necklace and boots are too much.

  20. mg May 7, 2013 at 04:47 #

    this is the SJP i love! SJP + philip treacy=winning combination. remindes me of her mcqueen gown on SATC tour. love love love

  21. bijuk May 7, 2013 at 05:30 #

    finally someone really translate the theme of ‘PUNK: Chaos to Couture’ well! Hail SJP Queen of Fashion!

  22. Mmg May 7, 2013 at 05:30 #

    My fav. She looks amazing. Love the headpiece with the explosive print.

  23. jas May 7, 2013 at 05:53 #

    this is what the met is about! love it!

  24. vicky May 7, 2013 at 06:18 #

    Love everything except the head piece

  25. Natalie May 7, 2013 at 06:24 #

    One of my favorites of the night. She never disappoints at the Met Gala. Dramatic, exciting and she kept to the theme!

  26. Aline May 7, 2013 at 07:32 #

    Yeah, I don’t share the excitment. Actually, I share it when it comes to the headpiece. It’s fun and true to the theme. But the leaves print dress isn’t punk at all in my book. And those boots should be far far far away from that gown, it just doesn’t make sense.

  27. brian t May 7, 2013 at 08:41 #

    The other pics do a better job of showing off that headpiece. It comes over as a kind of “punk crown” anyway, so – quite appropriate. In one of the pics, Jennifer Lawrence appears to be laughing her head off at SJP’s look. But what’s with all the smiles? Punk don’t smile. 8)

    woah! i am jumping up and down in my seat! yes yes yes! this is good! we have a few hits at the Met Gala this time round but all of them are major and most of them have shocked me in a good way! yes!

  29. Gabby M May 7, 2013 at 08:55 #

    I like the hat. I do not like this preggers looking dress

  30. serapart May 7, 2013 at 09:00 #

    love love love this look, wish you had a sidepic of her headpiece, she looks amazing!!

  31. Beta May 7, 2013 at 09:07 #

    *THIS* is what I was expecting of the punk Met. FAbulous over the top fashion!! where are the alexander mcqueen and john galliano creations!!
    Im so dissapointed of the celebs that wear pretty couture gowns, NOT appropiate!

  32. Pati May 7, 2013 at 09:10 #

    She was my best-dressed hands down! I absolutely love this look from head to toe! I love the fact that she went completely over the top and I am amazed that such a petite person can pull it off with such ease! Bravo!

  33. NovuyoM May 7, 2013 at 09:28 #

    Belle of the ball without a doubt!! I love her look. She looks like regal punk royalty.

  34. Alicat May 7, 2013 at 10:05 #

    SJP IS BACK!!! Just amazing.

  35. Lee Ann May 7, 2013 at 10:31 #

    This night has been a total write off. EXCEPT for SJP.

  36. irina May 7, 2013 at 12:32 #

    SJP at her best! Amazing!!

  37. Jess2 May 7, 2013 at 12:36 #

    Crazy, and I dig that.

  39. Marko_M May 7, 2013 at 13:23 #

    This just might be my favorite of the night. The definition of punk meets couture. Perfect!

    The mohawk and the boots are OTT, but fit in with the punk theme. Love the dress.
