Since theSkinnyStiletto was an a bit of a hiatus last year, we missed one of our favorite events – the Met Costume Gala!  The theme last year was “Charles James: Beyond Fashion.”  He was considered America’s first couturier, so many attendees showed up in, what else, couture!  One of our favorite girls, the legendary Sarah Jessica Parker, showed up in a show-stopping black and white ballgown.  Created by Oscar de la Renta (check out his signature in red on the back), the gown features a fitted black bodice adorned with white buttons, a full gleaming skirt and a geometric black and white windowpane train.  SJP accessorized the look with white evening gloves, and a big, glamorous up-do filled with flowers!  Sadly, the 1st anniversary Mr. de la Rena’s death passed earlier this week, and we found a touching tribute Sarah wrote about her dear friend.  Fun Fact: It was Sarah’s idea to put Oscar’s signature on the back of the dress!  She improves everything!

One thought on “Look-of-the-Day

  1. What a beautiful creation and a lovely tribute to the genius of Oscar de la Renta! Sarah Jessica looks divine!
