Sarah Jessica Parker In Theyskens’ Theory – 34th Kennedy Center Honors

Sarah Jessica Parker was one of the many stars to tread the red carpet at the 34th Kennedy Center Honors event in Washington, D.C. last night.

The actress has never been afraid to make daring choices on the red carpet, a case in point being this Theyskens’ Theory Fall 2011 gown.

For one so petite, this gown with a voluminous skirt should totally overwhelm SJP and swallow her whole, but I think she pulls off this look with great aplomb when so many others would’ve been totally lost.

The gown would’ve had to have been modified to fit her perfectly, yet it hasn’t lost its shape or its volume. Kudos to the tailor.

Looking at the model’s overly creased gown I have to ask, did SJP walk to this event?

A very sleek updo adds yet more volume and height to her look. Dazzling earrings provide the finishing touches.

Love, loathe or undecided?

Me? LOVE, Love, love.

  4. Terry December 5, 2011 at 14:26 #

    The dress totally reminds me of classic Balenciaga dresses from the 50s. In any case, she looked amazing. Oh, I’m in love with her updo ♥

    SJP has often been accused of over accessorizing, but not here – everything is pitch perfect to my eyes!

  7. Quinn December 5, 2011 at 14:33 #

    LOVE! <3

    I’m with you! I’ve ragged on SJPs previous outfits but this is just amazing! A wonderful polish to it from the hair to the earrings to the whole demeanor. The dress, oh wow the dress.

    (Sidenote: I wish I could stop quibbling but I thought a nice fuschia lippy would be better. Or at least slightly darker than the color she sports now)

    • Mary Gatto December 5, 2011 at 16:48 #

      Agreed ;)

  9. Raquel December 5, 2011 at 14:40 #

    Maybe she got dressed there?

    • Fashion Critic December 5, 2011 at 14:43 #

      good thinking.

  10. f4fashion December 5, 2011 at 14:46 #

    I would have never thought a petite frame can pull off such a voluminous dress! but SJP did and she did it well! Beauty wise, She is looking amazing too.

  12. Paddy M December 5, 2011 at 14:50 #

    Also love. Another BDOTW look for me.

  13. Valeria December 5, 2011 at 15:11 #

    Adore it!

  14. nb December 5, 2011 at 15:15 #

    LOVE! This kind of look was made for her! The dress, the hair, it’s all perfection. <<<<>>>>>

  15. Leti December 5, 2011 at 15:23 #

    This is SJP at her best! I love when she goes retro. This is pitch perfect for me.

    • Rebecca Z December 5, 2011 at 15:52 #

      Totally agree. This was made for her. She really looks fabulous. Definitely BDOTW

  16. TeaAtTwo December 5, 2011 at 15:28 #

    Only Monday and already a BDOTW contender. The big hair really works on this occasion.

  17. E December 5, 2011 at 15:33 #

    This is classic SJP; when I saw the dress on runway, I immediately thought she should wear it. She totally makes it work.

  18. Goodie December 5, 2011 at 16:04 #

    very beautiful and well thought-out!

  19. Anna December 5, 2011 at 16:31 #

    she looks really good! BDOTW!

  20. Sea December 5, 2011 at 16:58 #

    Love, love, love! I was actually looking at this dress at an online retailer the other day and thought it wouldn’t be wearable. But she just proved how wrong I was. And she wears it so much better than the model! BDOTW please! :)

  21. Talita December 5, 2011 at 17:51 #

    What’s not to love? She looks divine. BDOTW!!

  22. Alina December 5, 2011 at 18:19 #

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE !!!

  23. MG December 5, 2011 at 18:20 #

    I love this woman. BDOTW for me

  24. WendyB December 5, 2011 at 19:04 #

    Bold. I love it.

  25. TeaAtTwo December 5, 2011 at 19:13 #

    I think Olivier Theyskens would be brilliant at the House of Dior.

  26. ramsay December 5, 2011 at 22:07 #

    Amazing! Amazing one of this year’s best – And the hair and the earings pure perfection

  27. Jimmy December 5, 2011 at 23:32 #

    This may be one of my favorite gowns SJP has ever worn. It is perfection on her. BDOTW hands down.

  28. Jones19 December 5, 2011 at 23:42 #

    She didn’t walk, she glided! Fabulous look.

  29. CreoleLady December 6, 2011 at 02:58 #

    Ok, SJP in this dress is totally throwing off my BDOTY list. There is no way this dress should work at all, much less bowl me over like this. And she even restrained herself with her accessorizing. Back to the drawing board.

  30. gurlygurl December 6, 2011 at 04:43 #

    Best I’ve seen her look in a long time. This is not a look for just anyone but in this case it is so right. Divine!

  31. Louise December 6, 2011 at 08:26 #

    Love it. Very much recalls classic Balenciaga and Dior looks. Really eye-catching but also classic.

  32. oksana December 6, 2011 at 20:22 #

    LOVE, pure love.

  33. Lou December 6, 2011 at 21:36 #

    LOVE it!!!

  34. bianca December 14, 2011 at 23:25 #

    what’s she got under that dress?the famous uprising rush of air from the subway grate that marylin monroe took so gracefully under that amazing, fabulous white dress she wore?unfortunately, sjp’s sac can never withstand that:)
