2017 Met Gala One-To-Watch: Sarah Jessica Parker

As we wait with bated breath for the 2017 Met Gala, Sarah Jessica Parker has been at the forefront of our red-carpet fashion daydreams.

And why shouldn’t she be? By any definition, she’s a Met regular with a number of memorable gala moments to her name. Even better? She always plays by the rules of the theme.

Take the 2015 Met Gala, for example, celebrating ‘China: Through the Looking Glass.’ Her robe-style gown was H&M, but its unexpected high-street label was nothing short of high fashion when combined with its crown jewel—a fiery, flame-ridden headdress by Philip Treacy.

One of my favourites from SJP was her Giles Deacon look in 2013 for ‘Punk: Chaos to Couture.’ Not only was the gown a metal-splattered masterpiece, her towering mohawk-inspired headpiece was on another level—literally. With over-the-knee boots, she was the punk-belle of the ball that night.

The classics came calling in 2014 for ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion,’ and she answered the call in a dramatically refined Oscar de la Renta gown that was simply swept up in pure elegance.

And, a true oldie-but-goodie is her 2006 ‘Anglomania’ look, which saw her stay true to British form in tartan evening wear by Alexander McQueen complete with a flirty tulle underskirt that was perfect for the ‘Sex and the City’ fashionista.

Which SJP look do you love?

    Cannot believe that she skipped this year! I waited and waited and watched for her but nothing!

    I like them all because she stuck with the theme, but like best the Oscar de la Renta & Alexander McQueen.

    She disappointed me last year but I still can’t wait to see what she will wear

    My one to watch is of course queen Karolina Kurkova. To me, SJP always takes it over the top even approaching the ridiculousness. KK always sticks to the theme, looking gorgeous and classy yet keeping it showstopping.

    I loved the 2006 look at the time and still do. Same for he gown from 2013. The 2015 look took my breath away and not in a good way. I thought it was all kinds of awful in 2015 and still do.

    A side view of the Oscar de la Renta would have shown the breathtaking train, which IMHO is what put that dress in the top 100 Meta gala gowns.
