This is appropriately starry and elegant for opening night at the ballet:

I’m assuming the shoes are the SJP Collection, given that she’s expertly poking her foot through there. But I like how festive this is, without being overly childish on her. What gets me is the hair and makeup, I think. I watched some final-season Sex and the City reruns on the plane home from New York, and I really miss that SJP, with the voluminous hair and minus the Michelin tire’s worth of liner around each eye. Because that, plus the very severe updo that’s pulling her cheek skin back to her ears, gives her a squinty severity that is at odds with her general genial demeanor. Even Kate Middleton has relaxed on the kohl pencil. YOU CAN TOO.
