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.
