Sarah Jessica Parker In Elie Saab – 2011 Cannes Film Festival “Wu Xia” Premiere

OMG what a night.

I can’t step away from my PC for 2 seconds before yet another gown hits the red carpet.

Here we see Sarah Jessica Parker again tonight, this time she attended the 2011 Cannes Film Festival “Wu Xia” Premiere.

The actress looked stunning wearing an Elie Saab Fall 2011 gown.

Her floral printed crepe georgette gown with lace detailing at the sleeves and at the neckline thankfully wasn’t over accessorized on this occasion.

She added a stunning complementary necklace and dazzling diamond encrusted earrings.

I’m so happy she let the gown do most of the talking.

Do you love this as much as I do?

    I am in love with this dress

  2. Laura May 15, 2011 at 17:37 #


    Only SJP could pull off a print like that. Glad she pulled back her hair to let the gown do the talking.

    Beautiful dress, but on SJP, it’s stunning! The necklace is a little detail that makes the whole look stand out…

  4. Jimmy May 14, 2011 at 23:16 #

    I love this!!! It is my favorite of the whole festival right now.

  5. Lee Ann May 14, 2011 at 20:11 #

      😉 cute

  7. Fari May 14, 2011 at 16:58 #

    The dress is amazing on her, but do I see grey hair?

    • Fashion Critic May 14, 2011 at 16:59 #

      well she is 46 and human, so I don’t see this as an issue.

    Hi Fashion Critic, first of all, thank you very much for the great coverage. I just love your blog and keep checking it all the time. Just wanted to let you know that you have been referred to in a Spiegel Online Article (Germany’s most popular news website) but you probably know that already? (Link to the article:,1518,762594,00.html)

    • Fashion Critic May 14, 2011 at 16:46 #

      I had to translate it 🙂 thanks for sharing x

      I’m glad you are enjoying my coverage. Many more days to come

    on anyone else this would look like something from a little old ladies wardrobe, but on sarah jessica it looks gorgeous. her make-up is flawless in my opinion, so glad she softened it down she normally seems to pile on the eyeliner and eye shadow which makes her eyes look even smaller.

  10. Lucía May 14, 2011 at 13:09 #

    I love her in this but I’m not sure I like the print. She does make it work though.

  11. Terry May 14, 2011 at 12:34 #

    I know I’m saying this because SJP has fallen from grace in my style icon list, but I don’t like this outfit. The dress is nice, but I don’t think that print is appropriate for a red carpet.

  12. manja May 14, 2011 at 10:51 #

    love it,georgeus dress and she looks divine in it

  13. Gaber May 14, 2011 at 08:16 #

    We already saw someone wearing that print, no?
    Because I remember it being too much back then and it’s still too much.
    I absolutely adore everything else though.

    (Although I did just look up previous Saab entries and nobody seems to have worn it. Maybe a similar print then?)

  14. Emi May 14, 2011 at 08:06 #

    The dress is beautiful but I don’t like the earrings; the necklace is beautiful but I think it was unnecessary with the lace detail. There’s something I don’t like about the hair, interesting but a bit ruffled, but maybe it was a wanted effect.

  15. Sara May 14, 2011 at 08:06 #

    People might not agree with me but I think she definitely could’ve gone without the necklace. The earrings are enough in my opinion

  16. Pablo May 14, 2011 at 07:16 #

    Of course I would rip off her necklace at once, but other than that, she looks un-be-lei-va-ble!! The gown is just amazing!! She’s gone right into my Top 3 of Cannes 2011 so far!! Wow!!

  17. Alina May 14, 2011 at 06:50 #

    This is a perfect look for the Cannes film festival. It’s relaxed but at the same time oh so glamorous.

  18. f4fashion May 14, 2011 at 05:07 #

    This dress has SJP’s name written all over it, the print, the lace,every single detail. The necklace is not necessary but again this is so typically SJP. She seams to enjoy her dress right? I know I do 🙂

  19. Rita May 14, 2011 at 05:03 #

    STUNNING. okay the necklace is too much but i’m too focused on the dress and how perfect she looks in it

  20. Raquel May 14, 2011 at 03:56 #

    What a gorgeous dress. To be able to buy it… SIGH.

    The necklace is a bit too much, for me, all in all, she looks terrific.

  21. Andie May 14, 2011 at 03:29 #

    Belissimo! The dress is out of this world!

  22. Alice May 14, 2011 at 03:20 #

    OMG, I´m sure I love more than you! I´m completely in love!! WOW!

  23. nikki May 14, 2011 at 02:32 #

    That is so Carrie Bradshaw but why wear a necklece doesnt go

  24. BeK May 14, 2011 at 01:42 #

    This is one of best red carpet moments I have ever seen. She is devine!!!

  25. Kathryn May 14, 2011 at 01:41 #

    STUNNING!! A definite BDOTW contender.

  26. Zarina May 14, 2011 at 01:11 #

    Oh my goodness, this is soooo beautiful! I love that print so much! BDOTW is gonna be a tough one!

  27. A May 14, 2011 at 01:05 #


  28. Joy May 14, 2011 at 01:00 #

    It’s a very striking look. Love it.

  29. Wendy May 14, 2011 at 00:58 #

    Very nice dress for SJK! It is so flowy and make her look slender. It would be a better day dress than a night dress.

    FC, I just saw on Fan Bing Bing’s fansite that she also attended the “WuXia” premiere in a pink gown.

  30. Naomi May 14, 2011 at 00:52 #

    I just l-o-v-e-d this dress on the runway. It was one of only four prints in a sea of monochromatic looks, and I wanted badly to see it on the red carpet.
    SJP really does it justice, she looks beautiful in it.
    My BDOTW, for sure.

  31. Luiza May 14, 2011 at 00:35 #

    yeah, FINALLY i can say that i like something that sarah jessica is wearing, but i think this is not a dress to wear at night

  32. GGG May 14, 2011 at 00:31 #


  33. Jennesia May 14, 2011 at 00:29 #

    I mean the gown is so beautiful by itself why did she think it necessary to add the necklace? Ignoring that aspect i tink this was a great choice for her and she is working the hell out of it. I must say she has gorgeous eyes and usually i am not a fan of her close-ups 🙂

    • Gigi May 14, 2011 at 00:38 #

      You are so right. The necklace is absolutely unnecessary. I LOVE HER HAIR. This ‘do really accentuates her eyes… her very best feature.

  34. Ingrid May 14, 2011 at 00:22 #


  35. justme May 14, 2011 at 00:22 #

    Stunning dress. I can live with the necklace but the earrings are too much for this look imo.

  36. mol May 14, 2011 at 00:21 #

    Oh yes I do love it as much as you…..maybe more!

  37. sofia May 14, 2011 at 00:20 #

    100% wonderful. the print..the detailing…all of it is wonderful. mix a killer gown with A KILLER/AMAZING/FLAWLESS FASHIONISTA like SJP and its a match made in heaven. the designer must be really excited. he is a favorite for me -so this is really cool

  38. moja31 May 14, 2011 at 00:20 #

    the necklace is overkill.

  39. Morgane May 14, 2011 at 00:18 #

    I think the necklace was not so necessary but the rest works fabulously well!

    • Wendy May 14, 2011 at 01:07 #

      I think sometimes starts wear them as a gesture of appreciation to the company that sponsors the jewelry, or they could be the spokesperson for a collection etc.

  40. Talita May 14, 2011 at 00:18 #

    I loved. I’m feeling the Va-va-voom

  41. Hisadora May 14, 2011 at 00:17 #

    OMG I LOVE the way she’s holding her gown, so chic!!! She looks absolutely fantastic! wow that’s gonna be a hard decision on the BDOTW girls!

  42. Hermione Weasley May 14, 2011 at 00:15 #

    This dress screams SJP, imo. She looks stunning.

  43. Marvel May 14, 2011 at 00:14 #

    FC you are on fire tonight.

    I dont particularly like the dress not SJP in it

    • Fashion Critic May 14, 2011 at 00:15 #

      sizzling 😉

  44. ashley May 14, 2011 at 00:14 #

    oh wow! i love it! she is totally working this dress and it makes her look really tall!

  45. JacobGH May 14, 2011 at 00:11 #

    GORGEOUS. Her last couple of looks had me worried that she was losing her touch but this is stunning. BDOTW contender? This is going to be a crazy week! FC, how are you going to edit it all down?

    • Fashion Critic May 14, 2011 at 00:13 #

      I have absolutely no idea :O
