Sarah Jessica Parker at the Met Ball

SJP wore Oscar de la Renta to the Met Ball


Sarah Jessica Parker was in her element at the Met Ball last night, as she stepped out in a voluminous Oscar de la Renta floor-length gown.

The actress kept strictly to the White Tie and Decorations dress code, teaming her couture dress with a show-stopping up do and white elbow-length gloves.

Oscar de la Renta, with his signature feminine silhouettes, was a perfect choice for the Met Ball's Charles James-inspired theme, so it's unsurprising that several other well-dresseed celebs chose to wear the designer.

Taylor Swift looked stunning in a pale pink number, and Clare Danes followed suit in an elegant strapless pink number. Meanwhile, Amy Adams wowed in a metal silver gown, and Girls star Allison Williams wore a beautifully simple coral dress.
