Event co-chair Sarah Jessica Parker was one of the first people to strike a pose on the red carpet at the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.
The fashion superstar wore a delightfully dramatic custom Oscar de la Renta gown with peplum petals and elegant white gloves.
Sarah Jessica is one to watch at this event every year, because she really takes the theme to heart and plays up the drama. While this gown would have been hard to pull off on any other occasion, it is absolutely stunning and apropos for the night.
Smokey eyes and a unique double chignon are the perfect compliment to the striking look.
The back view is equally striking here, and Sarah Jessica’s hairstylist kept that in mind by adding floral accents to the back of her updo.
Thanks, Sarah Jessica for starting things off right!
