The 47-year-old actress arrived at the MET wearing a pale pink, long-sleeve gown from the Spring 2012 haute couture collection that was covered in tiny pink and green floral prints.
I was going to say that this reminded me of curtain tapestry or a dress I had to wear for Easter when I was seven, but I was advised that that might be too harsh.
I stepped outside of my immediate thoughts for a moment and imagined it on someone else.
You know when people say “that’s not your dress”? Well, this is a case in point.
I firmly believe that if this was worn by someone like Camilla Belle, Halle Berry or Mila Kunis — I might feel entirely different about it. I think the light color of the gown needed to pop off a darker complexion and hair.
Sadly, SJP did absolutely nothing for me last night and the fact that she wore the matching shoes and those stark contrast yellow gold cuff bracelets just made it hurt more.
She finished off her look with Fred Leighton jewels.
