After last week’s examination of the ladypants trend on the red carpet, which gave the distinct impression that ladystars and their stylists haven’t quite figured out how to wear this newfangled contraption, we’re kind of grateful to Sarah Jessica for stepping out in front of the cameras and declaring, “Ladies? This is how you do it.”

Not that this is perfect or anything. Those are some WIDE ladypants, and they could have used a hemming. Plus, we still hate SJP’s tendency to layer necklaces that don’t really go together all that well. And that tassle pendant shouldn’t be worn with that kind of bustline. But we like this look overall. The jacket really sells it, and there’s something kind of endearing about her sporting a big ol’ purse instead of the tampon-carriers most ladies clutch on the red carpet. She looks chic and relaxed, which is always a good look for her.
