Sarah Jessica Parker In Rochas & Oscar de la Renta – Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago Gala Benefit

Sarah Jessica Parker attended the gala benefit for the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago on Friday in Chicago, Illinois.

The actress donned a black sleeveless Rochas gown which she styled with a navy Oscar de la Renta tweed coat.

I’m torn on this look.

Whilst I love each piece and the drama of the look, I also feel they are slightly overwhelming her petite frame.

SJP accessorized with Fred Leighton diamond-drop earrings and a Carole Tanenbaum necklace.

Big wavy hair complemented her look.

Love or loathe?

    The dress looks nice but the coat totally overwhelms her.

    The dress is not doing her any favors imo. Too long and overwhelming. I love love love the coat. She could have worn that with a skirt or a better dress!

    I also adore each piece of this look and I don’t feel that they overwhelm the certainly petite but very “imposing” actress. But I think there is something awkward about the length of both pieces when put together. I wish the coat would have been a bit longer.

    This is the best she has looked in a long time.
    Beautiful!

      +1 – sensational. The nipped in waist and tailoring of the top portion of the jacket maintain her shape while giving a bit of whimsy, however dark, on the bottom

    Have always loved the drama she brings to the red carpet. Love this. There’s just something about her that’s always interesting. And her hair’s best when it’s big!

    She looks beautiful!

    its all good apart from the hair, i seriously long for the day she cuts it shorter.

    I think she looks amazing. This is very SJP. love it

  10. Koma April 23, 2012 at 20:48 #

    Love it! It looks really chic!

    I am with FC when she said in a previous SJP post, “I love Sarah Jessica Parker, I really do, but she doesn’t half test my love.”

    Sometimes SJP nails it like no other fashionista, but sometimes she looks nuts. Like she had too much fashion fun without the sense. There is always taste with SJP but sometimes no sense (overaccessorizing, shoulder bags on the red carpet, crazy hair, crazy hats); case in point above.

    A heavy black coat over a heavy black dress? Neither of which do anything for her nor bring out/ represent her beloved sunshine personality? Darling…

    SJP does have an on-off stylist and during off periods she calls her pal L’Wren Scott for advice (I read that somewhere). This must be an off period. But SJP, I love your hair.

    Love. I think the pieces are well tailored and dramatic. She pulls it off.

    I’m crazy about this look without the coat. This just has become my favorite SJP look of all times.

  14. Jess2 April 26, 2012 at 01:58 #

    She looks very beautiful and radiant here I think her hair and makeup is spot on. She certainly loves to wear top layers with gowns! Love the Oscar de la Renta coat, I love his stuff more and more all the time. I do adore the drama of this look, I was going back and forth about it but I have decided that I do love it!!
