Actress Sarah Jessica Parker has defended the outfit she wore to this year's Met Ball, explaining she went into "exhaustive detail" to understand the theme.
The annual event took place in New York on Monday (02May16), and this year the theme was Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology, which left some designers and celebrity guests vexed.
Style darling Sarah Jessica's choice of outfit split the fashion critics, with some far from impressed by the off-white cropped trouser suit with matching bodice by Monse.
But during an appearance on The View on Wednesday (04May16), Jessica attempted to explain why she picked the look.
"I research it and I go to exhaustive detail to understand the meaning of the theme," she insisted. "The world is such a place now where everyone has an opinion and isn’t that wonderful we live in a democracy, and it isn't a great way to spend our time trying to worry about what people say or try to fix it or make it feel better. It's perfectly alright."
Her comments follow an article in T Magazine, in which the actress and fashionista explained how she found this year's event more challenging than previous years, and that it took her a while to finalise how she was going to tackle it.
