‘Sex And The City’ star Cynthia Nixon was spotted backstage at The 30th Anniversary Of The Promise event in Washington DC this weekend.

The former red head wore a very dramatic Carolina Herrera Fall 2010 gown.

Model Iris Strubegger just about makes this chocolate brush stroke print silk one sleeve gown and a red bustier look good, but it Cynthia isn’t so lucky as she looks really bad.

No wonder she didn’t stand up in any of the photos.

Adding long gloves to the look doesn’t help this either.

This look joins a rapidly growing Worst Dressed Of The Year list with recent additions Marion Cotillard and Katie Holmes.

Tory Burch looks considerably more comfortable and elegant in her white strapless gown.
