Sarah Jessica Parker knows how to make an entrance at the Met Gala, but this year she skipped her signature sartorial headpieces and still managed to make heads turn with her Hamilton-inspired jacket, ruffled sleeves and cropped pant.
Her Broadway-influenced look consists of an all-white Monse get-up with a tailored, military-inspired backless coat (with sheer, sparkly ruffled hems at the sleeve) plus a matching tank and loose-fitting cropped trousers. She accessorizes with an old-school portrait-style pendant and teams the whole look with pumps from her own SJP Collection line, which she shared on Instagram during her pre-Gala prep.

Parker told reporters on the carpet that she saw the impossible-to-get-tickets-for musical (again!) with both of her twin daughters which was what inspired her to incorporate the story into her Met Gala ensemble.

She explained the process of getting Gala-ready with this year’s theme was “more complicated” than past galas. She shared, “You have to really ponder how you’re going to illustrate that in some way without having something that lights up or is LED. Technology becomes more about what we use outside that is a part of getting through the day. So for me I like arriving at this [outfit].”
The actress has been known for wearing creative, opulent looks the last few years, starting with her custom “Punk Couture hat” in 2013, which she followed up with an extravagant updo in 2014 and last year’s Philip Treacy headpiece which featured tassels, ribbon flames and furry pom-poms and sparked memes galore on social media.
