Sarah Jessica Parker Reveals Which Met Gala 'Wasn't a Fun Night' & Which Look Was Likely Her Favorite!

The 2006 Met Gala “wasn’t a fun night”

“When I was invited and told the theme, I said out loud [that] I really wish I could go with — we called him Lee — I wish I could go with Lee. I wish I could go with McQueen,” SJP said about the theme, “AngloMania: Tradition and Transgression in British Fashion.”

She continued when looking at a photo of her with Alexander McQueen, adding, “A bunch of things came to mind. A — he would say no, he’s already been asked, he’s called for, he’s obliged. And I didn’t really know him well enough to be so presumptuous. I summoned the courage or whatever was needed, and I reached out and asked would he consider attending with me, meaning more so, me with him. Could I be with him that night? And he said yes.”

“What strikes me about this photograph, is where our heads are and how careful I’m being, or cautious, or the shyer he was, the more shy I became. And I see that in this,” she added. “I’m being very careful of him. I feel like I’m literally saying, ‘Are you ok?’”

“It wasn’t a fun night,” she continued. “It was, but it wasn’t because I was nervous. I just wanted him to be OK. He knew how I felt about him, and there was like, so much affection and such a deep admiration.”

“I have every pin he dropped from his mouth in my possession still. I have everything he cut off in my possession still. I have things that seem like nothing — from every fitting I ever did with him — I have in my possession,” SJP continued.
