For those who follow on Twitter, my pick for the Met Gala’s best dressed was probably obvious. Although I tried to remain objective, reviewing slideshows and opinions in the days following, I keep coming back to the gut reaction elicited by her red carpet interview. In that moment, I simply tweeted: SJP #metgala. And honestly, what more needs to be said???

Ok. Perhaps, I should add a few more words to explain why SJP's look is so fabulous. Monday's gala celebrated the new Costume Institute exhibit, PUNK: Chaos to Couture. Sarah not only embraced the theme, she embodied it – high fashion punk pieced together in an unexpected way. Her choices were chicly subversive and anti-pop-establishment. In fact, some didn’t get it at all, which only makes the look even more perfect!
