Sarah Jessica Parker, MET Gala 2016, Arrivals

Sarah Jessica Parker will speak her peace, especially if it has to do with fashion.

The former Sex and the City star proved that not only do celebs actually see the posts that you tag them in on social media, but some (including her) will take the time out to write back if they feel they are being unjustly criticized.

So here's what happened: SJP, along with Madonna and Diane Von Furstenberg, was called out for her outfit choice on the Met Gala red carpet last night by a fashion blogger on Instagram who expressed that some stars didn't seem to follow the theme of the night.

The account posted a three-way split of the women posing on the carpet with the caption, "The 2016 Met Gala Theme was 'Manus X Machina; Fashion in the age of technology' and this trio didnt get the memo @sarahjessicaparker @dvf @madonna #fashionforward #Metgala #fashionblogger #ivymarshall."

The actress caught wind of the post and took it upon herself to leave a note defending her wardrobe choice.

"Got the memo. Always welcome thoughts but I'm a stickler for the theme and pay close attention to what it means. Every year with great consideration, research and conviction," she began.

"The understanding of man and machine, how they intersect, when and why is what we considered. Perhaps you weren't aware of the technology used in the details and embellishments of the design. Or perhaps you simply didn't like what I wore which is completely fine but you can't accuse me of not paying close attention and adhering to the theme. With respect and warmest regards, sj."

While some celebs decided to steer their style in the direction that was quite literally in-line with the theme (hi, Zayn Malik), the fashion icon decided to rock a look that seemed to be inspired by the hit Broadway musical Hamilton, complete with flounce sleeves and cameo necklace.

Leading up to the red carpet, SJP teased her look on Instagram, posting a photo of her heels, which helped to modernize the look (and also give some flashbacks to the Sex and the City movie).

"Encouraged these @sjpcollection ladies to do a dry run on THESE steps in anticipation of THOSE steps later on. If you know what I mean," she captioned the pic.
