    Love the dress but dude… The eyes…. They kill me.

  • SJP does NOT look amused to be at this event. And that dress is overplaying things for something in the afternoon. Matthew persists in looking like the “nice” partner at the firm.

    • drdarke

      “Nice Partner At The Firm” is a good look for Broderick, @Kiltdntiltd – it lets SJP get the attention without embarrassing either of them.

    • Corsetmaker

      It’s an evening event. But the gallery is in the park and of course it’s late dark at the moment. I saw some of the other pics and everyone was pretty glitzy.

      • Thanks for letting me know. I will then switch my quibble to Matthew who should have gone a bit more formal for the event.

        • P M

          Truth be told, I like the ‘tweedy professor’ look. Not to everyone’s liking, but there’s no counting for taste, no?

      • Heather

        It stays light SUPER late in Britain this time of year. These photos might have been taken at 8:30 or 9 pm.

  • Lizzy

    I do give her credit for not having work done on her face.

    • random_poster

      I was thinking the same thing. She has such a unique look and it shouldn’t be messed with.

      • Rand Ortega

        Exactly. Jennifer Grey immediately comes to mind on that front.

        • MoHub

          Absolutely! Jennifer Grey became almost unrecognizable after she had her nose bobbed.

          • Rand Ortega

            Somebody put Baby in a corner. Broke my heart.

    • sunnycalif

      She had LOTS of work done to her face, but not recently.

  • leftcoastpickle

    I KNOW!! She is freaking me out with that zombie stare. Her black eyeliner is blocking the light from her eyes or something, I don’t know what is going on there, but make it stop!

    • SouthernGirlRena

      My first thought was she looks like a well dress zombie. I’m glad to see I’m not the only one.

      • Domo_Konnichiwa

        I’m waiting to get the call with SJP saying “Seven days….”

    • 3boysful

      As I have said before, she is clearly too cool to look at photos of herself, because she’d surely be horrified at the zombie stare that khol is creating. But doesn’t she have any nice girl friends/gays who WILL tell her?

    • ankali

      I never had much of a problem with her eye makeup preferences, but today I finally see what y’all have been going on about. She looks like a fancy extra from The Walking Dead. (Love the dress, though. Minus the illusion netting.)

  • MilaXX

    She looks great. Not sure I would have paired black shoes with this dress, but that’s my only quibble

  • The eye liner of doom has returned. For your souls. I thought the 20s were a roaring good time, why so pissy SJP?

    • Mismarker

      She looks pissy AND tired. So very tired.

  • FlyoverFi

    Dress looks great. Sorry she forgot to actually pack shoes for this event and had to borrow someone’s black pumps.

  • Julie Parr

    This dress would have been perfect for Carey Mullgan at a Great Gatsby premiere.

  • Terry

    I wish someone would convince her to change her eye makeup.

    • lexilexi

      … and her hairdo… it’s gone on long enough… the long hair with the center part. A new ‘do’ would be so refreshing..

      • Mismarker

        I just can’t get over how haggard she looks from the neck up. Would love to see her ditch the severe center part and ombre hair. Hanging on to the last vestiges of Carrie Bradshaw just doesn’t seem to be working for her anymore.

        • UsedtobeEP

          There a good possibility she’s hoping for another film playing that part, though.

  • Peeve

    Love the dress on her, even if it a bit much for daytime. She looks so pale and colorless in the face, though. Other than the burning coals of her eyes. I repeat the lament of pretty much everyone–you have beautiful eyes, why do you bury them in eyeliner???

  • MoHub

    Wow! Just switch out those pumps for a pair of white Courrèges go-go boots, and she’d be ready for a dancer cage in a “60s discothèque.

  • Gloriana Reginata

    The dress is great fun, even though she is back to the zombie makeup which drags the atmosphere down a bit. And her hair over her shoulders help disguise the edges of the netting, which is the only questionable aspect to the dress, so yay cocker spaniels.

  • jmorino08

    I unapologetically love this! It’s so fun and flirty and soooo flattering to her figure!

  • Heather

    Ferris is swimming in that suit.

    • AnaRoW

      I have to keep reminding myself that that’s Ferris. I somehow never saw him growing up to look like he could be Mr. Banks’ (from Mary Poppins) long-lost brother.

  • Austen Jane

    I just want to give her a hug. It looks like she’s been hiding in the bathroom crying.

  • Heather

    Trimmed, and she needs to pick which color she wants it to be.

    • Annarosa

      and she should sleep, because her face…

  • DamH


  • AC Simons

    That last shot is the best. She looks relaxed and attached to Matthew. I really do love the dress and accessories.

  • hac51

    She needs to update the hair. It’s one of those ‘trying to look younger’ hairdos that ends up aging the hell out of the woman wearing it. (She can still have it long, just… shape it up or something.)

  • TRSmith

    Her toes are always pointed in.

  • Rand Ortega

    The dress is delicious & she in it. The shoes are a bit heavy, I prefer the sandals on the model. She didn’t have the liner yesterday & I shouted w/ joy. I wish she wasn’t so worried about her eyes disappearing, just give them a little color besides that harsh, black liner.

  • plinkiedoodle

    I’m not in love with the two black eyes. Time for a make up do over.

  • frannyprof

    I don’t like this look for her. The makeup is too dark, the dress washes her out, her hair needs to be styled.

  • majorbedhead

    When is she going to realize that that eyeliner makes her look 10 years older than she is? It’s horribly unflattering.

    Also? I HATE illusion netting.

    Matthew is doing that little Ferris smirk in the final photo, so he can stay.

  • another_laura

    Sorry, she looks so tired here. Too-heavy eyeliner, dress is washing her out. too bad because yesterday she looked so cute. Clearly the space was not set up for photography, with the reflector-thingys and lighting. I would be so very unhappy to be SJP seeing these photos today!

  • Shawn EH

    Matthew wins this one, surprisingly. He looks seasonal and fresh. She looks vampiric.

  • cowper

    This overdressed, overly made-up look is aging her. Remember the scene from the movie Brazil where the two dowagers have dinner and talk about plastic surgery?

  • Clydette Wantland

    Did she only bring one pair of shoes? They seem too heavy for this dress but it looks nice on her.

  • EEKstl

    Noooooooo. She should have ditched the necklace, worn the cute silver sandals the model is wearing, and toned down the eye makeup. Then we’d be in a better place.

  • Julie Chase

    It ages her 86 years. Bad. BAD BAD BAD.

    • rajf

      Flapper Miss Havisham.

      • DilettanteDeconstructed

        Miss Havishimmy?

  • Corsetmaker

    Nope, evening.

    • Little_Olive

      Then I’m OK with the dress. Not that it’s anything to be excited about.

  • unbornfawn

    SJP – Step away from the eyeliner!

  • filmcricket

    Luuurve the dress, but honey, you need. To. Change. Your. Eye make-up. It has never been flattering, and it may never have looked worse than it does in these photos.

    • Not applicable

      i KNOW! just yesterday it looked so good and today she’s back to using the full on uber black liquid liner. Come on girl- you can do it, let go…!

  • MannahattaMamma

    she really does look like she’s from the crypt with that hair & that eyeliner. If it weren’t “SJP,” you’d say she’s straight from the trailer park.

    • Mismarker

      YES! She is looking a little “motorcycle momma” here. Not that there’s anything wrong with that (lots of ladies can rock that look) …. just I’m certain that is not the look she was/is going for!

    • lobsterlen

      Yes … Tales from the crypt and SJP posing in front of what could pass as rod iron cemetery fence is just adding to the Zombie undead look.

  • Oh girl, no. The eyeliner is bad enough, but that dress belongs on someone at least 10 years younger. This whole ensemble ages her terribly and she does not deserve that!

  • Bless her, she’ll probably be buried in that makeup. Some women find a look and never, ever change.

  • barbarienne

    Right dress, right woman.

    He looks like a well-dressed schoolteacher chaperoning a dance.

  • julnyes

    I hate the make-up and the fried hair, but she looks great in that dress and I like the jewelry. MattB looks acceptable.

  • carnush

    This reminds me of the dress Carrie wore on her first date with Baryshnikov in season 6. I like it.

  • stubbornthoughts

    Poor makeup, but other than that, I agree with the majority. Right dress for the right woman. She looks awesome.

  • Lesley

    the only time you see a woman in a sparkly dress and raccoon eyes during the day is when there taking the walk of shame…

  • gabbilevy

    Seriously. Her hair and eyes are always this bad. Which is a shame, because this is a good dress for her. And the hubby looks well turned-out, so brava to her for keeping him sharp.

    • It will be interesting to see what she does with her style as she ages. So far, she’s pretending that she’s still twenty or thirty. I think all the makeup is to make her eyes look bigger. A woman can only get away with a middle part for so long.

      • LesYeuxHiboux

        Isn’t it commonly known fact that surrounding your eyes completely with dark liner makes them look smaller, not bigger? See Lavigne, Avril and Momsen, Taylor. Both decades younger than her and have already abandoned this look for the most part.

        • If you put a smudge of brown underneath and outward, the eyes can look bigger. If you add black hard liner close to the eye and in the pink part, the eyes look smaller. SJP has beautiful blue eyes that are small. IMO, they look best with lots of mascara on separated cured lashes with brown shadow and smudged liner on the bottom. There’s a resurgence of black liner inside the eye and a black pointy wing from the sixties. Both looks harden the face and don’t look good on aging women. SJP needs an age-appropriate style overhaul. I think she should wear her hair the way “Carrie” wore it when she went to work for Vogue. It was short, curly, a-line and I think it had a side part.

  • JP

    Clearly those Garnier products aren’t doing a damn thing for her, b/c she looks like a reanimated corpse. With unkempt hair.

  • acevedob

    I’m sorry but Matthew Broderick is still so attractive.

  • Heather

    The Fug Girls posted some photos from the same event, in which SJP is actually smiling, and it’s a world of improvement. Those photos also seem to have been taken BEFORE her lipstick wore off, unlike these ones.

  • Not applicable

    body is slammin’ but AGAIN with the liquid liner! It’s a clearly problem dear, please get some help.

  • Candigirl1968

    Shoes seem too heavy, and not loving the streaks. But the dress is lovely.

  • Donna Tabor

    Are they at the same event? He is daytime to her boogie nights.

  • nannypoo

    The good news about her scraggly hair is that it covers up some of the illusion netting. I like the dress on her. Matthew is adorable.

  • Tess Danesi

    It’s a great dress that really fits SJP’s look and smashing bod. But why is the lining meant to show? Couldn’t the last layer of beads be longer or the lining shorter? At first I thought the dress had think straps which I would like way better than illusion netting.

  • Anplica Fiore

    And she some color SOMEWHERE!

  • Darva Sutra

    I cannot with this bitch. Demon Eyes are all I see.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    She’s died but hasn’t told anyone yet. Ssshhh.

  • Lee Rickards Frew

    She does look tired, but compare this picture to the one from yesterday, when she was not wearing SO much eye makeup. She looked 15 years younger.
    Cute dress, but maybe washes her out a bit?

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    Holy God, her makeup! She looks like Andy Warhol!

  • kalisa

    I’m sorry but her feet just look GROSS.

  • Lola Channing

    lovely dress. And suits her. But the afghan hair has got to go. It is not doing her any favors. Being hyper critical obviously but really, isn’t SHE bored of it? We all sure are.

  • Anniebet

    Great dress for a tony Indoor Event in London. And… Black Pumps?

    First: fire your makeup person NOW with “Do not pass go, do not collect $200. Go directly to Makeup Jail, etc”

    Second: Find your damned manicurist.

    Third: Make a note to self – never stand outside in the sun for pics ever again.

    Fourth: Find Matthew a new hair person.

    Fifth: Sorry, I’m feeling bitchy.

  • appliquer

    Death warmed over.

  • Nimith

    You look tired, Ms. Parker. Are you getting enough sleep?

  • 3boysful

    But just think, if you’re ever walking down the street and there’s a sudden emergency need for a makeup person specializing in zombie/vampires/demons, all the BKs will know how to do it.

  • Louise Bryan

    Today is the first time I noticed a logo in the lower right corner of pictures. As Allen Sherman would say, Van Nuys, guys.

  • Pudgy Possum

    she looks like she just woke up from a hard night out. The dress drapes nicely on her taut little frame, though. Hee hee–“taut”!

  • ShaoLinKitten

    Someone needs to slap that black eyeliner and mascara out of her hand! They are giving her Walking Dead eyes. She needs a makeup artist who accentuates the positive. Whoever is doing her face is not! Fired!

  • Fordzo

    Girlfriend looks like she should have stayed home and gotten a good night’s sleep. Jet lag is a cruel, cruel mistress.

  • spooki C

    With out the scary makeup and the sad hair she would look fine but as it is I feel like she’s going to steal my soul if I look her in the eyes.

  • MNStargrl

    Her eyes look like zombie eyes!! Almost white walker-esque…Cover that up and she would look better…until you get to her feet…cover that up too….LOL

  • demidaemon

    Cheap and tacky (her dress). YUCK.

  • MissMariRose

    I want to show these pictures to Cathy Cambridge and tell her this is what she will look like in 15 years if she doesn’t address her eyeliner addiction now.

  • Jess White

    Oh, no, Jareth the Goblin King has stolen another baby!

    • LesYeuxHiboux

      Obviously I loved that comment. Her hair is not quite so spectacular, methinks.

  • AnneElliot

    Her hair is giving me a sad.

  • AutumnInNY

    It’s been 15 years since S&TC began. It’s really time to retire this hair/make-up look. She has access to the top hair/make-up people in the business, it’s time for a change girl.

  • Krysta

    DAMMIT she’s back to that eyeliner.

  • Eye makeup makes her look like she’s undead.

  • Colin

    She looks straight up evil in the eyes, her face looks ragged and aged, her hair looks like it has grey highlights, and then she wears a highschool tweeny dress? Oh lawdy

  • veleri

    love it. the dress looks better on SJP than on the model!

  • theblondette

    I am 30 and I feel this look would be too young for me. Also the shoes look terrible with it.

  • Sagecreek

    Oh, dear. Remember the other day when we were all applauding her cutting back on the eyeliner?

  • I like the dress, especially on the model because the nude top shows. The color does nothing for SJP. Her knees look knobby.

  • Zorkness

    Pretty dress, but it seems to me a little more length is called for. Those knees…..

  • Dan_In_NYC

    I like the dress – she definitely going through a sparkley moment. Agree about the BAD BAD BAD makeup. I also like her hair. Sure she has a little bit of old lady hands and feet going on, but I’m not mad at her. I like this.

  • docholly

    that last shot looks like her chin could cut the toughest piece of meat. I think perhaps she needs to embrace her 40something self and leave “Carrie” behind.

  • Erica Woods Tucker

    I know she has the body, but something looks a little off. The knees maybe?

  • erinbinek

    Girl looks HAGGARD. Go home and get some rest, honey. And scrub off that eye makeup. Yikes.

  • Nonnah


  • fishmermaidman

    Pretty sure her eyes have their own event horizons. Matthew Broderick sound be more careful.

  • Lattis

    Inspector Gadget and his sweet zombie bride.

  • Amy

    Is anyone else disturbed by her knees?? they look horrible…weird…old…maybe time to slightly lower her hemline to cover them up

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    One, I feel like she’s too curvy for this dress. It’s making some of the tiers stand awkwardly away from the rest of the dress when the point is clearly a slick flow and sway. Two, it goes way too literally twenties with that long double strand of pearls. Straight to Halloween. Her hair looks like she just rolled out of bed, and the shoes are not only too heavy for this dress, they are too heavy for this time of day.

    Could have been a great little dress a size bigger, with better accessorizing and deployed at the right time/event.

  • SarkyMarky

    She looks like a cracked-out day-walking night-walker. I feel that SITC put too much weight on her shoulders to become the high fashion clothes horse she was sold to us as because she’s just looking old, tired and frizzed out lately. I can’t even focus on anything/one else the photo may have included as those soul-sucking eyes have drained me.

  • sekushinonyanko

    They don’t look dressed to be in the same place. Like she is going to a nightclub and trying to GET SOME and he’s having a dinner with his parents.

  • librarygrrl64

    Aw crap, the heavy eyeliner is back. 🙁

  • Sonja Brisson

    She looks possessed. I wish she would relax, just a teensy bit, every once in a while. Although I envy her ability to live as a breatharian.

  • capybara_cafe

    I love this dress, but SJP looks like she’s been “rode hard and put away wet.” (as my uncle would say) one too many times. Is it just the eyeliner? I think it’s the hair style as well. Someone call Stacy London.

    • Stacy Feng

      Are you a Meier? Because that’s what my boyfriend’s uncle(s) say too.

      • capybara_cafe

        No, but it’s a fairly common saying amongst horse people.

        • Stacy Feng

          And people with boats.
