Sarah Jessica Parker was one of the Red Carpet appearances who gave me hope that for the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute 2011 Gala she would bring a touch of dash and fabulous so that we will all remember the sartorial grace and genius that was Alexander McQueen.
She did not disappoint, but she went for a safe bet, however: a figure hugging grey – ish dress with crystals allover from the Fall Winter 2005 Alexander McQueen collection. It’s the second dress from the collection so far, in my favorites top of the Met Ball 2011 Red Carpet (the first one is Gisele Bundchen’s red dress). I’m especially fond of the hairdo – I think it’s the best match for the dress! (she ditched the coat but kept the blue shoes though) (photos 1, 2)
