Sarah Jessica Parker In Elie Saab – 2013 BAFTA Awards

Sarah Jessica Parker In Elie Saab 2013 BAFTA AwardsSarah Jessica Parker attended the 2013 BAFTA Awards on Sunday at the Royal Opera House in London, England.

You could say her dark Elie Saab ensemble from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection somewhat played to the cold and rainy mood.

It was a solid jumpsuit in theory, with its structured bodice and waist detail and the mini keyhole, all paired with plain black pumps. (SJP was no doubt much warmer than some of the other stars on the red carpet, too.)

But the end result just didn’t translate quite as dynamically for this actress.

In this case, the addition of the metallic gold belt from the designer’s lookbook might have provided a sleeker, waist-defining edge.

The diamond necklace, which perhaps was added to dress up the look, didn’t work well with the high neckline.

All in all, I couldn’t help but be a bit underwhelmed, if only because I was expecting a bolder statement, especially given the recent looks (remember the furry blue Misha Nonoo ensemble and the exhilarating fuchsia Maison Martin Margiela gown) we’ve seen from this stylista.

No matter; SJP will no doubt up the style-forward ante on another occasion.

Sarah Jessica Parker In Misha Nonoo – New York City Ballet Luncheon

Sarah Jessica Parker In Mischa Nonoo - New York City Ballet Luncheon

With temperatures dipping way below freezing and snow storms headed to the East Coast, Sarah Jessica Parker is well prepared.

The actress was spotted making her way to the New York City Ballet Luncheon yesterday wearing a Misha Nonoo Pre-Fall 2013 ‘Annabel’ hydrangea-blue double-breasted alpaca coat over her sexy L’Agence fitted dress.

Even though the coat is attention grabbing, I still find myself able to appreciate each piece of this look, which was styled with Christian Louboutin ‘Pivichic’ pumps in a gorgeous coral colour.

You may remember that Kerry Washington wore these same pumps in black last week.

I think these are going to be the ‘Bis Un Bout’ heels of 2013.

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?

Best Dressed Of The Week – Michelle Obama In Jason Wu & Sarah Jessica Parker In Giambattista Valli Couture & Mary Katrantzou

BDOTW FLOTUS & SJP

FLOTUS was your best dressed this week wearing Jason Wu and I can’t fault your choice as Mihcelle Obama looked stunning at the inaugural ball.

My choice was Sarah Jessica Parker.

As a lover of prints she managed to expertly blend a variety of prints courtesy of Giambattista Valli Couture, Mary Katrantzou and Jean-Michel Cazabat and make them work together.

This is a feat we thought only Solange Knowles could master.

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.
