Sarah Jessica has really raised the Met Gala bar for herself in recent years, from dramatic headdresses to a Mohawk fascinator to the Oscar de la Renta gown that ultimately, poignantly, served as his swan song. And while this was certainly whimsical, it didn’t pack that same punch. Sarah Jessica told People that she was trying for an interpretation of “Manus x Machina: Fashion in the Age of Technology” that didn’t involve LEDs or robots — an analytical approach that I appreciate. But I’m not ENTIRELY sure how settling a costume from Hamilton was the answer. Or, to put in in Lin-Manuel terms, she’s usually Angelica or Eliza; yesterday, it was And Peggy. I assume she went inside the Met Gala and grabbed the mic and sang, “Raise a glass to sartorial freedom. Something they will never take away. No matter how they fug you.” Ain’t it the truth, but that doesn’t mean we won’t still tell the story of tonight.
