Sarah Jessica Parker In Oscar de la Renta – 2014 Met Gala

Sarah Jessica Parker In Oscar de la Renta - 2014 Met Gala

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!

Anna Wintour In Chanel Couture - 2014 Met Gala

As the host of tonight’s proceedings, Anna Wintour was the first to take to the red carpet for the ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’ Costume Institute Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

As expected, she wore Chanel Couture, selecting a Fall 2013 organza gown with black, pink and white appliqués featuring a sheer yoke.

Aside from the removal of the black belt, there were no modifications to be had on this occasion, but she did switch things up in both the footwear and jewels department for a refreshing change.

Met Gala Trend: Built-In Gloves

Met Gala Trend Built-In Gloves

Anti-establishment style was everywhere last night at the punk-themed 2013 Met Gala, where the ‘it’ list worked varying levels of sartorial subversion – from glam-rock to goth and grunge.

But there was also a select group of red-carpet rebels who armed themselves with one of the evening’s more unusual, nonconformist trends.

Their weapons of choice? Not spikes or studs, or even chainmail. Rather, they suited up in full-on punk protection mode with what can only be dubbed as glove-sleeves – full arm, hand and finger-covering extensions. (Practical, they are not.)

We saw these gown appendages in their most blatant form on a Givenchy-clad Kim Kardashian, who not only covered her baby bump in all-over floral, but also completely sleeved up in the moody, foreboding print.

The built-in glove extensions also appeared on Leelee Sobieski, who wore Christian Dior Couture and looked to be growing a gold-plated garden on her forearms and fingers.

It was Paloma Faith in a Michael Cinco design who gave us the best lesson in how to wear gown-gloves with her blood-red, ombre-effect masterpiece.

Is the trend worthy of a high-five, or is it outrageously out of hand?
