Sarah Jessica Parker opted for a less puffy hairstyle when she attended the 2011 New York City Ballet Spring Gala with husband Matthew Broderick last night.

The ‘Sex And The City’ actress wore a romantic Valentino Pre-Fall 2011 dress.

I love the longer version of her sheer dress with a lightly embellished overlay. I can imagine the shorter version on the Fanning sisters.

As much as I love this look, I’m going to beg SJP to please opt for a clutch instead of those crossbody bags she favours.

They give off a ‘just got off from work’ vibe.
