Sarah Jessica Parker In Giambattista Valli Couture & Mary Katrantzou – Out In New York City

Sarah-Jessica-Parker-In-Giambattista-Valli-Couture-Mary-Katrantzou Out In New York

Sarah Jessica Parker was spotted leaving her home in New York City yesterday with her son and husband Matthew Broderick.

I’m not sure where she was going, but she looked sensational wearing two of my favourite designers: Mary Katrantzou and Giambattista Valli.

Her dress is from Mary Katrantzou’s Spring 2013 collection, featuring the signature currency print which made up half of this collection.

Most people would pair this colourful printed dress, with a fitted bodice and flared skirt, with a solid coloured coat; thankfully SJP isn’t most people.

She added an equally colourful Giambattista Valli Fall 2012 Couture coat to her look.

The woodland-inspired floral jacquard drop-waist coat is both elegant and refined, managing to stand out on its own and complement the Mary Katrantzou dress underneath.

A champagne-coloured chain-accented bag embellished with aqua stones, and yellow-and-green snake-print Jean-Michel Cazabat ‘Emma’ pumps completed her look.

I don’t know about you but I am drooling over this look. On paper it sounds too much, but this is a visual delight and worthy of a BDOTW nomination.


You can buy SJP’s Giambattista Valli Couture coat from Matches Fashion Global and Matches Fashion UK.

Do check out the other Giambattista Valli Couture pieces they have available online at Matches Fashion Global and Matches Fashion UK.

    I love the prints, and many of the pieces individually (her dress is better than the runway’s shapless sack by far) but all together it is just too much. I feel overwhelmed…she looks like a high fashion bag lady.

      Id love to see that gorgeous coat buttoned up

      • taksi January 23, 2013 at 00:16 #

        Yep, I think the prints work overall. My only quibble is she lost the shape of the coat.

    • Vicky January 22, 2013 at 18:17 #

      Agreed! Too much!

    • kane January 23, 2013 at 11:32 #

      Just what I was thinking.

  2. lola January 22, 2013 at 12:42 #

    I agree FC…she looks sensational….i love love love this look!

    • adrian January 22, 2013 at 20:33 #

      +1 – not easy to pull off and right down to the shoes she nails it. BDOTW pleaeaeaease!!

  3. Henrique January 22, 2013 at 12:43 #

    I’m loving this mix of prints a lot. Definitely a BDOTW contender.

    • mm January 22, 2013 at 13:06 #

      I totally agree.

  4. Grace Patrcia January 22, 2013 at 12:45 #

    She looks gorgeous here! I miss Carrie Bradshaw so much when I see her looking like this!

  5. Rashmi January 22, 2013 at 12:59 #

    She looks like beautiful yummy cake 😀
    Love all the pieces and I started drooling seeing she didn’t pair it unexpectedly with a boring pump and chose the equally fun yellow-and-green snake-print pump.

  6. TeaAtTwo January 22, 2013 at 13:03 #

    Sometimes her looks are too much but this is all out fabulousness. I’d have every piece if I could.

  7. fashionmint January 22, 2013 at 13:05 #

    love it to the core !

    • Fashion Critic January 22, 2013 at 13:16 #


  8. Anne January 22, 2013 at 13:08 #

    First thing I thought of when I looked at this was, “It’s [Valli], and I love it!” Oh Carrie Bradshaw, how I miss you. But when SJP brings this to the streets, it’s like tv-meets-real life!

  9. Yeliz January 22, 2013 at 13:09 #

    I’m sorry but there’s a lot going on. The dress with the coat and the shoes plus the bag are too much for my tastes.

  10. serapart January 22, 2013 at 13:14 #

    absolutely breathtaking, I´m in love with this and her shorter hair…

  11. Iris January 22, 2013 at 13:20 #

    so this is what they call style. such confidence!

  12. Alina January 22, 2013 at 13:40 #


  13. TL January 22, 2013 at 13:45 #

    Only SJP can look radiant in this combination. Fabulous!

  14. Elise January 22, 2013 at 13:56 #

    I like the dress and the coat separately, and they could have worked fine together, but those shoes and the bag are killing the overall look. Too much

    • Moxie January 22, 2013 at 14:52 #


  15. Leeann January 22, 2013 at 13:59 #

    There is simply no elegance to this – she looks like she is trying too hard.

    • CreoleLady January 22, 2013 at 14:53 #


  16. msd January 22, 2013 at 14:06 #

    Sometimes more is more. I love it.

  17. Nat January 22, 2013 at 14:29 #

    I hate this with a passion.
    The only thing that comes into my mind looking at this is “Oh yes, let’s wear THREE different prints that are totally clashing with each other, just because I’m SJP and people will think that it’s fashion forward rather than illogical”.
    Also, enough with the ombre hair.

  18. Christine January 22, 2013 at 14:55 #

    This is splendid. So gorgeous and pretty. Print Heaven.

  19. Andrew January 22, 2013 at 15:18 #

    Lovely look, but FC I am very confused… Giambattista Vali Couture for sale for under £5000? It was always my belief that Parisian couture was completely hand-made, that only one was ever produced and that it was sold privately for many thousands… Please clear this up for me!

    • Fashion Critic January 22, 2013 at 15:32 #

      It’s only a few select pieces not the whole collection.

    • LeeAnn January 22, 2013 at 15:42 #

      I was really surprised by these prices too because couture is hand made with many fittings. These prices are less than many designers ready wear. I can only think they are based on his couture but not actually

  20. Jess2 January 22, 2013 at 15:33 #

    Wow, I am a little speechless. Not in a million years would I have thought these pieces would work together. Three different printed items in one looks just sounds ridiculous but if anyone in the entire world chould do it, it would certainly be, and is SJP!!

  21. manja January 22, 2013 at 15:54 #

    I love her and her choices,mostly,but here I wld change the shoes for solid vivid color like green,and def change the bag,not a fan.and she needs to color her hair asap.

  22. Pedro January 22, 2013 at 16:07 #

    Queen SJP looks amazing!

    Omg, seems like a Sex And The City episode


    BDOTW for sure

  23. Rebecca Z January 22, 2013 at 16:21 #

    I agree that somehow she makes this glorious jumble work. Love it.

  24. DivaDebbi (Beauty and Fashion Blog) January 22, 2013 at 16:22 #

    Adore Adore Adore! It reminds me of one of my favorite SITC looks ever, Big is about to take off for CA and Miranda gave birth. She was in a magnificent evening coat over a fabulous dress, with blue feather sandals.
    So perfectly Carrie and SJP…

  25. mirela January 22, 2013 at 16:47 #

    It is just so Carrie-like. Love it. Great combination of prints.

  26. Leti January 22, 2013 at 17:11 #

    There’s, surprisingly, a lot to love in this look, but I think the shoes take it one step to far for me. I don’t even find the colors complimentary. I also really like her hair.

  27. dunzoo January 22, 2013 at 17:54 #

    she looks amazing! very Carrie-esque, as others said. Only SJP can pull this look off. BDOTW for sure.

  28. robbie January 22, 2013 at 18:55 #

    this is definitely a carrie bradshaw style look here and it is PERFECT!

  29. Laura January 22, 2013 at 19:50 #


    Do you know who designed the bag? If so, do you have a close-up picture of it?

  30. Nat39 January 22, 2013 at 20:42 #

    The shoes complement the coat, the bag complements the dress, together none of the pieces are producing the right effect and working to their full potential, but instead they are competing and distracting from each other, not a good styling.

  31. Simon January 22, 2013 at 20:52 #

    She can do everything… amazing

  32. Dhppy January 22, 2013 at 21:11 #

    I kind of love it. I like the ballsiness of bringing print down to the shoes. It’s a chancy move that paid off. I would like it if the hem of the dress were a bit higher up, just under the knee, but otherwise, I like the whole thing a lot.

  33. Fanny January 22, 2013 at 21:52 #

    I love how the bag is so unexpected but it SO totally works with the look.

  34. Dhppy January 22, 2013 at 23:20 #

    True, most would have stopped at one print. Some may have gone further with the printed coat. But very few would say, “You know, I’m putting in even more print in with my shoes”. That’s fashion confidence. I like it.

  35. Valeria January 23, 2013 at 01:58 #

    This looks amazing and she totally pulls it off, I only have issue with the bag-I don’t like it at all. But with ensemble so well-put together I can let it pass.
    The shoes I ADORE and they just add extra whipped cream on top!

  36. Sara January 23, 2013 at 13:28 #

    I LOVE this. But if I wore it, I would look like a crazy bag lady.

  37. Ellie January 23, 2013 at 14:54 #

    Allright, this has to be one of my BDOTY !!!

  38. dee January 23, 2013 at 17:43 #

    I can tolerate everything but the shoes should have been a solid color.

  39. Mar January 23, 2013 at 21:00 #

    She was going to the opening night of Patricia Broderick’s new art exhibit in New York. The are a few pictures of Sarah with James and Matthew in InStyle.com 😉

  40. Agathe January 24, 2013 at 15:42 #

    BDOTW list, please!!!

  41. Shiva January 25, 2013 at 09:33 #

    She looks outstanding. Makes all those looks that she’d been putting together in the past seem like trial runs. it’s genius styling and hope she keeps it up!
