Who Wore it Best at Met Costume Institute Gala 2011: Sarah Jessica Parker, Renee Zellweger or Gwyneth Paltrow? (PHOTOS)
Nude tones of gold and silver seemed to be the trend of this year’s Metropolitan Costume Institute Gala, which was held in honor of the late designer Alexander McQueen. And it just so happened that three of Hollywood’s top starlets came to the event wearing similar long-sleeved, sleek gowns: Sarah Jessica Parker, Renee Zellweger and Gwyneth Paltrow.
SJP wore a silver McQueen, appropriate for the event, I’d say. Zellweger went with the ever-so-classic Carolina Herrera, donning a gold shimmery number with a scooped back. While Paltrow opted for a backless Stella McCartney number.
So who wore it best? I’m going with SJP. The gown fits her perfectly, her hair looks fabulous, and hello? She’s wearing McQueen to a McQueen event. Doesn’t get classier than that! A+, Parker.
As for Zellweger, I’d give her a close B. I’m not as crazy about this color on her pale skin. And Paltrow, a C. She missed the mark this time. It’s ill-fitting and how many times can you do the long-sleeved and backless thing? Have more fun! You have the body of a supermodel.
