Well Played, Sarah Jessica Parker


well-played

After coming to last year’s Met Ball as a hideous Versace throw-pillow, Sarah Jessica Parker had kind of a rough year for the fug. So perhaps getting to go full-on awesomely costumey this year will hit SJP’s reset button.

It’s not super elaborate, but the pattern is striking, the hit of turquoise is really pretty, and it’s flattering — it makes her look tall, which we all know that even in heels she is not. The twin cuffs might be a touch too much, but basically, I think this is a good example of her simply picking a really, really nice dress and looking really, really nice in it. There doesn’t always have to be a statement any louder than that.

    Love this. I’d wear this if I had the chance. I also really love her hair like this. The soft waves are so much more flattering compared the severe styles she wears.

    SJP does look great, and maybe like she’s gained a couple of very flattering pounds. Brava!

    I really love this, including the almost-twin cuffs and their matching rings. The dress is a marvelous fit, very tasteful in and of itself, and those colors suit her very well. And count me in on liking the soft waves for her hair.

    I would just remove the triple turquoise ring that’s unfortunately competing with those bold, bigger jewelry pieces. Everything else looks great to me.

    This is probably the best thing I’ve seen her wear in a LONG time.

    Love… except I want to take a Biore cleansing cloth to those eyes. The colors are soft and light, and so should the touch of your mascara wand.

      Yes, that eyeliner she always wears makes it look like she’s peering at the world through very tiny swim goggles. She looks otherwise pretty here.

    Her hair is in the best shape I have seen for a while….makes the whole outfit look better.

    I really love this. I have a thing for a nice pattern on a simple sillouette. The colors are so soft and feminine and it fits so well on her shape.

    I thought the ring on her left hand was a food-safe bandaid!

    Better than most of what she wears. Now, can she please lighten up on that eyeliner? It does her no favors.

    I think that she looks great (ignoring the eyeliner/mascara), usually she looks sooo extreme. The pattern on the dress is fabulous.

    I love the dress & the jewelry! Twin cuffs remind me of Wonder Woman, so I like them! Also her hair looks goooood! FAB!

    It also helps that she’s not wearing a big coat over the dress.
