Fashion and Sarah Jessica Parker go together like… well, like Carrie and clothing; yet for this year’s Met Gala ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ theme, some on Twitter disagree…
Parker’s name might forever be accredited to high style, fashion, and glamour – and rightfully so after landing her iconic role as Miss Carrie Bradshaw in 1998 with the popular television series Sex and the City – but in this instance, her reputation was under fire. Uh, literally.
During her role in the comedy series as a New York journalist for her Sex and the City column, her fashion sense was always made to be a focal point in the series, and now it is arguably what the lovely lady is most well-known for.
The show’s leading lady was seen in frills, flowers and full-bodied skirts throughout the shows six fashionable seasons. Looking back on her most celebrated styles, she has always embraced a clear sense of femininity both on and off the screen.
On the occasion she isn’t decked out in a gorgeous dress or full skirt, she can be spotted in trendy form fitting trousers and stilettos, proving her ability to spice up any type of outfit.
It somewhat goes without saying that when the term fashion is synonymous with your name, it puts an immense amount of pressure on the fashion choices you make. Parker typically makes beautiful choices, but as a true fashionista knows, you can’t get away with always playing it safe in this business.
What better time to securitize the red carpet than during the annual Met Gala? Kicking off this year’s celebrations in a truly festive manner, Parker has been photographed on the red carpet wearing a Chinese-inspired head piece that can be hard to miss..
The photograph has already made its way around the earth via Twitter, with people getting artfully creative and producing some clever memes. Whether her name and photo buzzing around the world was a desired outcome or not, it’s still making headlines. Yesterday it was even noted by InTouch magazine as one of the most “outrageous” outfits of the evening.
The fashion mogul was seen wearing this one shouldered floor-length black dress with a small train embroidered with flowers and the front showcasing Chinese embellishments. At the forefront of everyone’s interest is her headpiece. Designed by Phillip Treacy, the flame inspired headdress is burned into everyone’s memory. Sorry, couldn’t resist. No matter what anyone’s take is on her fashion sense, we thought she looked chic and embodied the theme of the occasion perfectly. And let’s not forget… this is the lady who trademarked the adult tutu. Respect.
