Sarah Jessica Parker In Maison Martin Margiela Couture – amfAR New York Gala To Kick Off Fall 2013 Fashion Week

Sarah Jessica Parker In Maison Martin Margiela Couture - amfAR New York Gala To Kick Off Fall 2013 Fashion WeekSarah Jessica Parker paraded out a bold style statement at the amfAR New York Gala to kick off Fall 2013 Fashion Week, hosted at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City on Wednesday evening.

The actress went to the Maison Martin Margiela Spring 2013 ‘Artisanal’ Couture runway for inspiration, where she found it in a fiery fuchsia number wrapped up in an extra-long black-and-white sash.

The colour of this strapless column gown with its vivid silk velvet, coaxed into a herringbone pattern, was exhilarating.

But the dress did completely overwhelm SJP’s petite frame, especially with the puddle of fabric that surrounded her every pose.

With a smokey eye, nude lip and her hair in loose waves, she tossed the model’s mask to the curb. After all, the look was high-concept enough without such tribal trappings.

The ‘Artisanal’ collection mixes playful invention and innovative upcycling with a sense of romance and wit. But the exits can still be challenging for the red carpet.

Did you like SJP’s look or should she have left it on the runway?

    Love it! So different to anything else making its way down the red carpet lately. I find it very refreshing. She looks great.

    Personally not fond of the dress, but she is definitely working it. That color looks absolutely fabulous on her. She should wear rich colors like this more often.

    Queen SJP looks PERFECT!

    I just love how she is akways fierce, stylish and fearless

    Not a fan. The dress is overwhelming her. Maybe if she’d belted it.

  6. Jai February 7, 2013 at 15:24 #

    I like it. She’s really working it. And it’s nice to see something different and daring on the red carpet.

    I love this look on her… except that it is a little too long for her. But other than that I think she nailed it.

    I’ve just been wasting my evenings watching Sex in the City re-runs so OF COURSE I am head-over-heels in love with this look.

  9. EmmaWoodhouse February 7, 2013 at 14:06 #

    Not my style but other than the puddling hem I actually think she’s pulling this off. It suits her style well.

    Hot mess

    I really did assume this was Halston when I first saw it. SJP is one of the few that can make this work. It’s not a BDOTW look for me, but I do love her red carpet gumption

  12. Noemi (WBiS) February 7, 2013 at 09:03 #

    I don’t know how she could walk considering the length of the dress, but I like it. And I love her wavy hair.

  13. manja February 7, 2013 at 08:46 #

    I like it,agree with others a bit too long,but it’s not ruining the look for me,color and patern are amazing,as is hair and make up,effortless and cool

  14. nokia February 7, 2013 at 08:38 #

    so good!

  15. robbie February 7, 2013 at 08:35 #

    like the dress but cut a few inches off the hemline and it would be perfect, glad she didnt go ott with accessories.

      I agree.

  16. Alex February 7, 2013 at 08:31 #

    Normally I would agree about the length, but she is working the HELL out of this look. I love it on SJP!

  17. Mol February 7, 2013 at 07:04 #

    I don’t know, SJP doesn’t look like she is stressing her exit from the RC at all…..and I think she looks fabuluously wonderful, a true RC pro!

  18. MissAmynae February 7, 2013 at 05:53 #

    Very cool, in a luxe 70’s Halston, or Norma Kamali vibe. Hair and makeup are lovely. I’m so glad she left her hair down and soft, and didn’t go for a severe updo or frizzed out mane.

    Its definitely a “hey did you see what sjp wore?” dress.

  19. Rebecca Z February 7, 2013 at 05:06 #

    I like the dress a lot and think it looks spectacular on her except for the excess fabric at the bottom. I can see wearing it a little long so that it pools a little, but not this long.

  20. TeaAtTwo February 7, 2013 at 04:54 #

    I hem it up so it isn’t dragging but the dress and sash prints are great and it’s and interesting design. She’s pulling off the loose fit and high concept of the dress.

  21. Christine February 7, 2013 at 04:49 #

    Not liking this.

    • Yeliz February 7, 2013 at 05:33 #

      Me neither.

  22. MG February 7, 2013 at 04:46 #

    and BDOTW please!

    • noo February 7, 2013 at 07:27 #

      agreed, she’s blowing me away!

    • fozaaa February 7, 2013 at 10:05 #

      totally agree. BDOTW. love this look.

    • Jess2 February 8, 2013 at 09:58 #

      I love it too! The dress and sash contrast is fantastic!

  23. MG February 7, 2013 at 04:45 #

    OMG she looks amazing. the dress does NOT overwhelm her at all!

  24. mandy February 7, 2013 at 04:39 #

    Oh I love it ! For once she is SJP not CB. The color and fabric is stunning.

  25. Beth Rodrigues February 7, 2013 at 04:35 #

  26. Prudence February 7, 2013 at 04:02 #

    I almost wanna tie that sash around the dress and give her a waist. regardless tho I am happy with the look. when I saw the title of the post I was sooo shocked cause I dont think ive ever seen someone wear MMM couture. props for being a true fashion gal.

  27. J.P. February 7, 2013 at 04:01 #

    I feel like I shouldn’t like it, but I do!!!

    • Francois Bresmal February 8, 2013 at 21:39 #
