2013 Met Gala Best Dressed
The biggest fashion red carpet of the year and the opening of the new fashion exhibition, this year’s Met Gala was centered around the theme Punk: Chaos to Couture. With such a tricky theme to navigate (spikes or no spikes, cape or . . . cape, that would be a no), only a select few demonstrated their talented fashion sense and blended both concepts beautifully. So I couldn’t help coming up with a few of my own awards for the best dressed.
OVERALL BEST DRESSED TO THE THEME OF THE EVENING:
~Sarah Jessica Parker in Giles Deacon dress, Philip Treacy punk couture hat and Louboutin heels. Only SJP can pull off a couture mohawk. Absolute, stunning confidence and the ultimate fashion muse~
~custom thigh-high tartan boots from Christian Louboutin~
~SJP striking a pose for Vogue photographers with Hamish Bowles~
