Sarah Jessica Parker In Louis Vuitton


I think I'm ready to give up on Sarah Jessica Parker. She wore this Big Bird's Bride from Louis Vuitton spring 2011 collection to the Seventh Annual UNICEF Snowflake Ball in New York.

I. Don't. Get. It.

Even the model in the Louis Vuitton show couldn't make it work, and she must be much taller than Sarah Jessica Parker:


From the seams that make the top look like an unfolded napkin, to the lack of waist (never a good idea when you're petite), to the excess in volume. It's just doesn't work. The styling is also messy: bridal shoes and distracting jewelry.



What say you?

  1. I just pulled a face at the screen. I think that says it all!

  2. Her hair and makeup look beautiful and striking! Maybe she doesn't have a full-length mirror!

  3. Hmmmm... I could make my very first snow angel in that dense pile of shifty fluff.

  5. I'm not in love with it, but I don't think it's too bad. Maybe it's because her hair and makeup look really pretty and flattering.

  6. wow, that's pretty dreadful. And the lighting's not helping either as she is not looking so well.

  7. Please, no more SJP pics. They are just sad.

  8. It looks like it's the wrong size. It also looks like a terrible accident with a paper shredder.

  9. I wish Sarah Jessica Parker would just go away. Now. No more SJP, please. Please.

  10. I like it. I like it a bit better on the model, just the styling of it. But, I think it's fun and sort of snow queen like. One gets sick of taking fashion too seriously and always having to wear things that are sexifying - even if it means just having a waist. What I can't stand is the pigeon-toed stance that is all the rage for the last few years. What's with that?

  11. I have to admit that I like it. But I like it because it makes me think of a little girl that found some fun dress-up clothes in her mother's closet and is teetering around in Mom's heels. I suspect that's not the impression that they were going for. (Come to think of it, it makes me think of Eloise.)

  12. Lately it seems that she thinks all she has to do is wear the latest designer outfit thrown at her with whatever shoes she pulls out of the closet and that makes her a fashion icon. So disappointed.

  13. You would think that by now she would have learned how to stand when her photograph is being taken. She is getting kinda *hard* looking. I've chosen just not to say anything at all about the dress.

  14. I'm much more bothered by her eyeliner. Is she getting private lessons from Kate Middleton?

  15. I love SJP-but this is an epic fail. Because she's petite, a fitted style works much better on her.
    The outfit might work if the bodice were fitted and the skirt shortened. I'd opt for simple jewelry like a cuff, because there's so much else going on.

  16. Why is she standing like that? I've heard of arms akimbo, but legs akimbo?!?

    Anyway, Sarah is getting older, as are we all, but she still sees herself as cute little Carrie. Now that she is well into middle age, there's a serious disconnect between how she styles herself and how she actually looks. No longer a fashionista, she's become a trying-too-hard fashion victim.

  17. I can't figure out her legs... They look like they're not attached to her.

    Her makeup looks great though

  18. well, i might like a slightly more fitted top, but i like the skirt quite a lot! less jewelry would have been wise as that skirt is very active- visually. i think the top could still have some boxiness, but be a bit more fitted and it would be delightful.

  19. Rachel: yes - the pigeon toes! Drives me mad to see women - and it's usually women - standing this way. Apart from looking daft, it's so bad for the posture. Grr.

  20. I think Eileen hit the nail on the head. It seems as though she still thinks of herself as cute vivacious little carrie when she is in fact well into middle age. Nothing wrong with middle age, I myself, am smack dab in the middle of it too. But she needs to seriously edit her look and pull back a bit in order to make the dramatic fashion statement that it's obvious she's going for in every picture we see of her. Bring it into focus lovie. That's all I can say. Her face gets much more interesting as she ages. I'm glad she isn't going overboard with plastic surgery. If at all.
