Sex and the City movie premiere: Sarah Jessica Parker

Sarah_jessica_parker

It was always pretty much a given that Sarah Jessica Parker would try to pull something a little bit extraordinary out of the bag for the Sex and the City movie premiere in London last night, but here it looks like she actually turned up in character as Carrie. And man, we’d have hated to have been sitting behind her in the theatre…

We love the dress, but aren’t huge fans of headgear that makes you walk like a robot, scared to move your head in case it all comes tumbling down on top of you, which is what seems to be going on here. It’s a great hat to look at, but possibly not so much fun to wear, we suspect. What do you think, though?

    I think she looks great. I wouldnt wear it (the dress yes but not the hat or head gear or what ever its called), but I think she pulled it off;)

    I’m with Veronika here. The hat/headgear looks great. Sarah Jessica is a braver woman than me though – I don’t think this could be pulled off by us mere mortals…

    Part of me likes it (especially the colour), part of me thinks that she looks like one of the Lilt Ladies (remember those adverts?)

    i don’t like it, and frankly, i think that lately sjp and the costume designer for sex and the city have been taking it too far, as if to see how far they could go without people saying the truth: that carrie/sjp has lately been looking like a mad woman

    The dress is stunning, i LOVE it, the hat however…..makes her look insane – which she probably is 😉

    Love the dress, but she could have gone with a more subdued hat and looked fabulous and chic.

    Hate it. If one took it apart and assempled things differently and maybe used a smaller flower…maybe it would have been cute? Instead it just looks very awkward and very I”M TRYING VERY HARD TO BE FASHIONABLE! SEE HOW FASHIONABLE I AM????

    I hate this look, I don´t like the dress (I just like the colour), neither that HAT. Too big, TOO MUCH.

Sex and the City movie provides second sighting of weird, marshmallow wraps that are taking over the world…

Sexandthecityfashion

Yesterday it was Lucy Liu, today it seems Sarah Jessica Parker has become the latest victim of the strange, puffy wraps which have been preying on innocent celebrities across the land. While Lucy Liu’s pink wrap looked like a giant sea creature, though, Allie is Wired points out that this one looks more like a massive scrunchie, and you know what – she’s right! Allie is also right when she imagines The Fashion Police circling SJP like bloodhounds for this outfit, but we’re not going to arrest her for it because:

a) It’s Carrie. This sort of behaviour is expected. 

b) There’s more to this than meets the eye, we think. Where are the giant puffy wraps coming from? Patricia Field is stylist for both Sex and the City, and Lucy Liu’s Cashmere Mafia. Is she the Master of Marshmallows? And can we expect to see more of them unleashed across the city, if so? 

Those two points aside, though, we’re actually feeling ambivalent about the Puffy Wraps. We realise they seem like the sort of thing we should hate, but we just …don’t, somehow. Maybe it’s something to do with the sheer drama of them, who knows. We will be watching this situation develop with interest, though.

    Can these things double a floatation device?

    The rest of her outfit reminds me of Cher from “Clueless”. The wraps leave me clueless as well.

    Oh my God, do you remember that episode when she was dating that author Jack Berger and she reads his novel and then they have a big fight after she’s all, ‘I can’t believe you have this girl running around town in a SCRUNCHIE. No self-respecting New York girl would ever go out in a SCRUNCHIE.’
    Touché, Berger.

    i think the “marshmallow wrap” is from Zac Posen
    i luv that collection – fairylike, romantic, imaginative ‘n beautiful
    following every detail of the runway/catalogue look may be boring sometimes
    but at least u’ll never go TOO wrong
    it can save u, SJP this time, from fashion crime
