Who dares take on Carrie Bradshaw’s fashion sense?
Blogger Ivy Marshall criticised Sarah Jessica Parker‘s wardrobe choice for the ‘Manus X Machina’-themed Met Gala last night, which held a strict dress code heralding the crossover of technology and fashion.
Marshall tweeted that SJP (among others) did not stick to the theme. “The 2016 Met Gala Theme was ‘Manus X Machina; Fashion in the age of technology,'” she said, “and this trio didnt get the memo @[email protected] @madonna.”
SJP’s outfit was a custom-made piece by Monse in all-white with a half-leg pant and vintage accents, inspired by the smash musical Hamilton.
A New York fashion icon and Met Gala regular, SJP politely but strongly hit back at Marshall’s post, saying, “Got the memo. Always welcome thoughts but I’m a stickler for the theme and pay close attention to what it means. Every year with great consideration, research and conviction.”
She continued, “The understanding of man and machine, how they intersect, when and why is what we considered. Perhaps you weren’t aware of the technology used in the details and embellishments of the design. Or perhaps you simply didn’t like what I wore which is completely fine but you can’t accuse me of not paying close attention and adhering to the theme. With respect and warmest regards, sj.”
SJP followed this with an Instagram post offering a closer look at the details of her outfit and acknowledging the work and team behind her look. “A wonderful night. A fantastic date. A wonderful design team,” it read.
A wonderful night. A fantastic date. A wonderful design team @monsemaison, hair @sergenormant , makeup @leslielopezmakeupartist, the eye of @erinwalshnyc and my trusted partner @alyssa and many memories. Wash face, brush teeth and try to fall asleep while images of trains and sequins dominate. The Met Ball 2016 out. X, sj #manusxmachina
