In or Out: Sarah Jessica Parker in Giambattista Valli

Posted on August 29, 2011

Sarah Jessica, we’re gonna do you a solid and explain to you why the public sometimes gets vicious with you. Your latest red carpet getup has helpfully provided us with visual aids.

Sarah Jessica Parker in Giambattista ValliSarah Jessica Parker at a presentation of her new movie “I Don’t Know How She Does It” in Moscow. Sarah Jessica Parker wears a Giambattista Valli couture gown paired with Christian Louboutin shoes.

Sweetie, we’ve always tried to be on your side, but when you go out looking like this, you’re helping to confirm a whole lot of what your detractors say about you: that you’re irritatingly full of yourself; that you’re more fashion victim than fashion icon; that you lucked into one iconic role and have been trying to play it over and over again, both in life and in films.

Here’s the thing, hon: this is way too much look for a simple film premiere. To be honest, it borders on being way too much look for the freaking Oscars, but we won’t go there. The point is, Sarah Jessica, this is sort of how people expect you to dress up for a Sex and the City premiere because it’s dramatic and fashion-y and gives off that Carrie Bradshaw vibe that you’ve been relying on cultivated. Because this is NOT a Sex and the City premiere, this looks a little obnoxious. The dress is fine, but no one really needs to wear a cape on the red carpet, dear. And you sure as hell shouldn’t be posing with it billowing out like you’re Cher in front of a wind machine.

And in the “…and the portions were so small” category of complaining… If you absolutely must wear the cape, then don’t remove the stunning brooch. That’s the only thing that makes the look interesting. This is where we get into the “fashion victm” charge, because darling? This look is nothing but a series of bad decisions. First, the cape, then the removal of the brooch. Next comes THAT HAIR. We can’t with that. Then comes the jewelry, all of which doesn’t really go with this look and most of it doesn’t even go with the other pieces of jewelry. It looks like a mish-mash of whatever wasn’t tangled in your jewelry box. Not that we believe for a second any of it came from your jewelry box. No, it’s more likely to be a case of not turning down some of the free pieces thrown your way. It’s fun getting free jewelry to wear, but that doesn’t mean you should wear it all at once, kitten. And finally, there’s the shoes. We think these can work in certain instances. Most of those instances require the wearing of pants. We could see these working with a skirt or dress, but no way in hell do they work with a gown. If anything, they look utterly freakish, poking out from the bottom like that.

VOTE NOW!

IN! She’s a magical princess! With cat feet!

 

OUT! She looks like she was blasted with a fashion cannon!

Lake Bell’s strange hybrid look combining fetishwear with yoga hair got a well-deserved OUT from the nonetheless puzzled precious unborn fawns.

      Here’s what I think happened: She wanted something red for the Moscow premier, and once her stylist showed her THIS, she thought, ‘LOL, that looks like Little Red Riding Hood!’ Then she thought, let’s go with that theme and went with the shoes to represent the wolf. Maybe it’s Little Red triumphing over the wolf. I don’t know. But I have to think she did this with a sense of humor.

        I like your analysis of the outfit, GothamTomato, although I think it’s giving her (or her stylist) way too much credit.  And it’s still too much for a movie premiere, even if your interpretation would make for an interesting essay (did I mention I’m an English teacher? ;-).

        This is the kind of sense of humor Katy Perry does so well, as we have seen today. But Katy Perry is in her 20s and her personna is, you know, like, California girl, like, lots of fun and cute and flirty and not too brainy in the brains department.

        This isn’t the kind of humor that works when you’re a mature actress. And I think SJP needs to come to terms with the fact that she isn’t the California girl she played in “LA Story” any more and hasn’t been that girl for 20 years.

        Is all I’m sayin’.

      • Anonymous

        I might believe this if there was any history of SJP wearing clothes with a sense of humor.  If Katy Perry wore this, I would totally buy that explanation, as she wears clothes like costumes.  In fact, Katy would probably carry a bag that looked like a basket to complete the theme.  Gaga might pull something like this while walking with live wolves on a leash or something. 
        This appears to be SJP’s inability to take a step back, see that she looked ridiculous and pick out another outfit.  Let’s hope she does better at the next premiere.

      i thought it was a brooch, too, but it is a necklace as the person below me said. i agree with what you guys said about the shoes ~ i’m not convinced of their wearability at all ~ and hair, etc. as a complete and total look, i’ll have to give sjp an OUT, although i stand by my original fb comments: LOVE the dress and cape, j’adore the drama, her main flaw was lack of committment to both.

      Maybe it’s a story of triumph – Little Red Riding Hood killed the big bad wolf…and made him into shoes?

      The thing I’ve always enjoyed about SJP is that she seems to have fun with the fashion that’s thrown her way. In the spirit of ‘girls just want to have fun’ with fashion, I give her an IN…because seriously, of somebody asked me to wear this and there was the slightest chance of a breeze thus making my awesome cape billow out behind me?….I’m totally wearing it.

      I might loosen my hair skull cap a bit and take a few pieces of jewelry off (and totally use the neck piece on the model) – but, I’m in. It’s Russia – it’s red! It’s FUN!

      I love the dress and even the cape, although I agree that the snake is needed and that the jewelry she chose instead lowers the tone drastically.

      Agree with you on the jewelry, but respectfully disagree everywhere else.  I think it’s fabulous.  I am also completely aware that I might be the only human who appreciates her dried out locks, but I do.  If girl wants to rock a fucking opera cape and some lion paws, she should do it.  At least she knows how – she looks thrilled and completely at ease, which makes up for what I don’t like about the look.

      I get the sense that maybe she’s trying to wear this with a sense of humor, but I don’t think that really works with this dress for anybody, because it’s just too much dress for any occasion, even if it’s being worn ironically.

      Actually, I take that back.  IF you happen to be Little Red Riding Hood, and IF you’ve decided to marry the Big Bad Wolf in order to save your village/people/civilization from a very angry god who needs a lot of appeasing, then this is the perfect dress to wear on your wedding night.  Any other time: not so much.

      This is the most tragic little red riding hood costume i’ve ever seen. It’s as if the wolf saw her and changed his mind about attacking her so she’s been wandering around in the forest for 30 years and somehow found her way to Moscow. So OUT but the shoes are interesting.

    • http://phantomminuet.blogspot.com/ MinAgain

      The cape would be too much for anyone, except maybe Tosca, and SJP’s hair rarely looks good these days.  I do love the shoes, although I think of suede as a little too casual for a formal gown.

      OUT – this just absolutely heinous. She wore THAT to a movie premiere? And those shoes….awful in any circumstance – you don’t pay $1,000 for a pair of tiger paw shoes – that is always for the realm of giggly bedroom clods. Ever. Also, it looks like she got gypped on the color and the dress material – the version of red she is wearing is not nearly as rich looking as the version on the model, but maybe the model’s dress was photoshopped within an inch of its life?

    • Anonymous

      Yes, the shoes are epically tragic, but the jewelry is a total failure. The only thing that would keep the cape from being too costume-y is the neckpiece (and it’s not a brooch – it’s actually almost like a choker; look closely, it encircles the model’s neck). Instead she’s wearing a stupid little necklace. SJP, I really do love ya, but even if this is a sentimental piece that Matthew gave you, it’s not like your Carrie necklace that you had to wear with everything. This is a statement gown that you needed to commit to with statement jewelry.

    • http://www.facebook.com/WendyLKaufman Wendy Kaufman

      She looks as if she is starring in a remake of ‘Love at First Bite.” I ADORE the shoes, must have them, but I am a bit campy. They do not work with this dress (which she clearly must pick up and toss over her shoulder to walk–which explains why she wanted outrageous shoes). Capes are bad, and as a person who has worn one with a train, they simply get stepped on over and over. The ensemble  must have looked like it was dip dyed at the bottom by the end of the evening. Hair WAY too casual for the dress, and yes, my god why did she leave that neck piece off? I bet it simply was not loaned to her.

      Still I covet those fun shoes.

      The hair gives it that witchy, Hocus-Pocus feel.

      So, given her money, her interest in fashion and her status as a ‘fashion icon,’ or a fashion near-icon, I will call it OUT, because I am judging stringently, not to say harshly.  Most people, I’d call it in.

      That’s the only thing I like about it though. She looks really Red Riding Hood with that hair and the cape. OUT.

      OUT! I will never understand why SJP has been elevated to the fashion “icon” status she has; her clothing choices are almost always wrong, ill fitting, too much, too whacked out without being ironic…anyhow, a very pompous and wrong OUT.

      OUT. O-U-T. 

      The shoes are all wrong with a gown and the gown is just all wrong. It isn’t just that it has a cape, or that she didn’t include the necklace/brooch/whatever that was… it’s that the dress doesn’t fit on the bust and it’s just too damn LONG for her, making it look like she’s melting into the floor. This isn’t attractive.

      Her hair is a straw-like mess and her makeup makes her eyes look small.

      This is one of those instances where I don’t actually hate anything she’s wearing, but it looks terrible together (although the bodice on the dress isn’t doing her chest any favors and looked much better on the flatter-chested model).

      SJP has GOT to stop it with the heavy black eyeliner.  It makes her look about a hundred years old and slightly drugged.  It’s awful, and the hair isn’t much better.

      My first thought was what in god’s name is wrong with her feet?!?! Im sorry, but I can’t imagine those shoes with anything, let alone that unfortunate choice of a dress . They remind of the rubber shoes with toes that you see on granola vegans, or whoever. The whole thing is kind of tragic.

      When I was a kid I used to obsessively doodle animal paw/claw shoes that look exactly like these Louboutins. I kid you not. 
      Oh, and SJP? She looks awful. The color is awful, the bust is awful, the cape w/o the interesting snake clasp is awful and the shoes (interesting as they are) look terrible with the dress. Her makeup is bad. The hair is eh. But you know, she looks like she is having fun. So maybe my criticisms are stupid.

      Ok I definitely think she should have kept the broach, but I sort of love this… even the hair. And the wind machine cape.  I know, I know.  But SJP always seems to have so much fun with clothes in a way that so few actresses seem to.  Because of that i have to love her and give her mad props.  She definitely LOVES fashion and it’s fun to watch what she comes up with. I love that she went themed little red riding hood complete with the crazy shoes no one else would dare.  So, for her sheer love of the eclectic and the couture I grant her an IN. Yes, Yes I do.

    • http://katelorenzdesign.com Kate Lorenz

      I’m sorry, but I love it!  In!  I agree that this would be a slam dunk for Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, or Nicky Minaj (though they would need to take it slightly more over the top) but I think those 2 ladies are bringing back themed ridiculousness/costume to fashion.  This is a nice way for someone like SJP who is more traditionally fashionable to segway into that new realm. If she had worn a cupcake dress or a glittery Smurf dress, yes, that would be too much, but this dips a toe into the themed fashion costume pool without jumping in completely.  Why not wear bacon earrings with a white and yellow colorblocked dress?  Why not wear wolf shoes with a red cape?  I think it’s hilarious and refreshing and I hope other celebrities will jump in on it too, now that someone more mainstream has done it.

      I just…um… don’t even know what to say about this. It’s so completely over the top and narcissistic that it gives me a headache. I’ve been back and forth about SJP for years. She actually seems nice and sincere. I thinks she wants and tries to live a good life, a life as normal as possible for someone as famous as she is. I don’t hate her by any means, but she’s so damn irritating sometimes. And this get-up is exactly why.

      Also, why is she wearing an outrageously formal gown and fucking cape, when her hair looks like she just came back from the gym?

      I can’t even talk about those disturbing shoes.

      At first glance I thought she was wearing those crocs with toes which is horrendous.  So the shoes don’t work with this look at all.  But paired with something simple like a black pencil skirt or black cigarette pants, the shoes would be a wow.  I do love whimsy in fashion even if it’s not always, uh, fashionable.  I have two pairs of Marc Jacobs mouse shoes that I love to wear.  The cape really needed the dramatic necklace.  She is overdressed for a premiere but it’s Russia, and they do things differently there.  I know – I’ve seen it first-hand.  So even though there’s a lot wrong with this, I’m giving her an IN for the sheer fun and humor she’s bringing.  And who wouldn’t love to wear a big flowy cape?

      This is a bit of a stretch…but I’m wondering if she was going for some “savage and wild Russian” look? With the red dress and the animal shoes and the unkept hair….it seems to evoke a member of the aristocracy sneaking out for a midnight tryst with Rasputin. Regardless, it’s not a great look and I give it an out, but I wonder if there’s more going on with these choices than meets the eye (though what *does* meet the eye is problematic to say the least).

      I love me a cape, but it’s not working here, both because of the loss of the brooch, and because the contrast from the cloth over her breasts to the cloth over her midriff is too echo-y of the cape. It’s curtains on curtains.

      (Can I express my love that you guys spell “brooch” correctly? The entire internet gets it confused with “broach.”)

      Clearly, someone managed to talk her into the cape, secretly intending to cover her Starving Pilates Abusers Anonymous arms.

      Gosh, I loved SJP… Her turn in Miami Rhapsody is still one of the finest modern female comic performances on film (and Pat Field did the costumes on it, too — really, it was the SATC template). Terrific script. “You’re a menace. Your nuclear warhead should be dismantled.” / “I don’t know where you’ve been.” “I’ve been with your mother!” 

      Then also LA Story, Extreme Measures, State and Main (where she mocks the startlet persona and makes me not want to club David Mamet).

      But the last few years, very disappointing. The squealing, the whispery voice, apparently returning to her Annie acting style… I. Just. Can’t. I wish she would go back to acting (on and off screen) like an interesting adult woman, and not a Vogue matron with the personality of a toddler.
