The 2006 Met Gala honored the theme “AngloMania: Tradition and Transgression in British Fashion.” Actress Sarah Jessica Parker took an unconventional approach in her kilt dress–or rather, half-kilt, half-dress.

The gown was half plaid kilt and half base dress with black lace. With only one strap, the dress has a unique mish-mash look tied together with a black waist belt and a silver broach on the shoulder. It was created by Alexander McQueen, one of England’s most successful designers who also accompanied her down the carpet.
