Are you a fan of Sarah Jessica Parker? Find her in a thoughtful Q&A with the new online magazine, sbjct.  (Subject without the vowels.)

Co-founded by Erin Walsh and Christian Hogstedt, sbjct features “extraordinary individuals and the subjects that move and inspire them.”

I think readers will be intrigued. Certainly they will have a little something to ponder from these interviews, which offer more depth than the usual magazine fare.

Check out SJP on sbjct.

After 50 years in business, Patricia Field is closing her NYC store. Ms. Field, known for styling Sarah Jessica Parker et al in the Sex and the City TV series and movies, has said that she feels it is the right time to close the shop and focus on other projects.

I wonder if among these projects might be film directing. She mentioned her growing interest in directing at an event I covered last year. Imagine the cinematography of a Patricia Field film.

Well, whatever she’s up to, OverDressed for Life wishes her the best.

Ms. Field’s store will close in the spring of 2016.

Sadly, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala has become nothing more than a celebrity spectacle. With the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, and Justin Bieber showing up looking like clowns, the event-of-the-year that used to be an evening of elegance for people in the fashion industry and their supporters has descended into Hollywood Trash Night.

This year’s gala celebrated the opening of China: Through the Looking Glass, an exhibition that explores the inspiration Chinese culture has had on western fashion. Some attendees (and their stylists) took the theme of the exhibit and went mad with oversized headdresses and excessive sequins. Others came up with their own theme – Raunchy – and sported revealing gowns that showed off what, I guess, they think is their best assets. Too bad for them.

Sorry SJP this is not a good look for you.

In my online research I spotted only two well-dressed women – Cher, which is surprising as she is usually leading the Trash Pack, and Chinese actress Ni Ni. Notice they chose elegant gowns with the subtle interest in the fabric. Excess isn’t necessary nor is semi-nudity. Follow a theme, yes, but don’t overdo it.

Ni Ni looks lovely in Ralph Lauren.
