Fendi New York Flagship Boutique Inauguration Party

Fendi New York Flagship Boutique Inauguration Party

On Friday (February 13) Fendi celebrated the opening of their New York flagship store during New York Fashion Week.

Rihanna: The singer, who designed a 3Baguette and micro baguette in aid of her Clara Lionel Foundation, wore a bronze leather Fendi archive dress styled with a pink chinchilla coat and Manolo Blahnik sandals. The look would’ve worked better sans coat.

Sarah Jessica Parker: The actress opted to go sans fur wearing a Fendi Spring 2015 look that was a feast for the eyes with its many colours, fabrications and layers. The smoky eye was perhaps too heavy for my liking, but I’m too distracted by her custom 3Baguette bag and stunning sandals.

Hailee Steinfeld: My first thought was that it was refreshing to see the young star in colour, then I realised she does often embrace colour but not always as boldly as this Pre-Fall 2015 look. A part of me feels there is too much going on, but the right side of my brain loves it from head to toe.

Sarah Jessica Parker In Delphine Manivet Couture – 2014 Fashion Footwear Association Of New York Awards

Sarah Jessica Parker In Delphine Manivet - 2014 Fashion Footwear Association Of New York Awards

Sarah Jessica Parker attended the 2014 Fashion Footwear Association Of New York Awards held at IAC Building on Wednesday (December 3) in New York City.

The actress wore a bewitching black Delphine Manivet Fall 2014 Couture dress spliced with sheer and velvet panels, with a voluminous skirt adding a dainty playful touch.

This being the footwear awards, she of course donned a pair of heels from her own SJP Collection, wearing nude hued ‘Carrie’ pumps, which is quite apt considering this is quite a Carrie look.

Vita Fede and Fred Leighton jewels plus signature wavy tresses provided the finishing touches.

Sarah Jessica Parker In Elie Saab Couture – ‘It’s Only A Play’ Broadway Opening Night Performance

Sarah Jessica Parker In Elie Saab Couture - 'It's Only A Play' Broadway Opening Night Performance

Sarah Jessica Parker attended the Broadway opening night performance of ‘It’s Only A Play’ held at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on Monday (October 9) in New York City.

The actress opted to wear one of her favourite designers, Elie Saab, wearing a beautiful white lace dress embroidered with silk threads and sequins and encrusted in Swarovski crystals from the Fall 2014 Couture collection.

Her dress is stunning as we would expect, but the styling kills me.

I’m assuming her first thought was, what would Carrie do? Wear a contrasting bra which shows through the dress, of course.

What would work for Carrie doesn’t work here; I’m not a fan of dumbing down couture, so the quirky or edgy nature of what she was going for is totally lost on me.

Factor in the tan tights and it’s a no from me.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Sarah Jessica Parker In Mary Katrantzou & Emma Watson In Christian Dior

Best Dressed Of The Week - Sarah Jessica Parker In Mary Katrantzou & Emma Watson In Christian Dior

This week was very strong fashion-wise, so I am not surprised that there was a deadlock.

You couldn’t decide between Sarah Jessica Parker and Emma Watson.

Sarah for her unique, modern take on style at the New York Ballet with her embroidered Mary Katrantzou gown; and Emma who continues to leave us in awe, presenting an event-appropriate, sophisticated, chic look in Christian Dior.

I went for Sarah for the reason above and for not over-accessorizing.

Sarah Jessica Parker In Mary Katrantzou – New York City Ballet 2014 Fall Gala

Sarah Jessica Parker In Mary Katrantzou - New York City Gala

Sarah Jessica Parker attended the New York City Ballet 2014 Fall Gala held at the Lincoln Center on Tuesday (September 23).

The actress wore a dramatic maxi-style Mary Katrantzou Fall 2014 long-sleeved dress richly embroidered, with the contrasting colour panels ensuring an elegant and fluid silhouette.

‎While a big puffy ballgown of the Oscar de la Renta, Zac Posen or Herrera variety would’ve been expected, SJP served up this modern work of art.

In my mind I had pictured this on some statuesque beauty like Erin O’Connor; however, the petite actress more than holds her own in this dress, which would’ve overwhelmed most‎.

We all know SJP loves to – at times – over accessorize, but her simply styling was on point on this occasion, especially her decision to sweep her hair back which was accented with a black ribbon.

Despite my excitement about this look, methinks that some might deem this to be not befitting of a ballet gala.

Which side of the fence are you?

Yay or nay?
