Sarah Jessica Parker at the Friends In Deed Dinner

Posted on July 18, 2013

If there’s one lady who can pull off a strapless jumpsuit (and there probably is), it’s SJ.


Sarah Jessica Parker attends Friends In Deed dinner in New York City in a black jumpsuit.

This really does look better than it should. We don’t like the bag at all, and we seem to be bitching a lot about black pumps lately, but they don’t seem like the snazziest of choices either. But even so, this suits her so well that we’re surprised we don’t see her in more jumpsuits. She’s got the build and the look for them.

Next time, try it with a fabulous pair of flat or low-heeled sandals, SJ. You keep complaining about the damage all those heels have done to you; time to put up and be the fashion icon everyone says you are. Rock the flats. Bring back the kitten heel. You’re the woman for the job.

    That fugly bag is bringing 70’s realness to the look

    • Just Me

      That’s what I thought. Change the bag and change the decade.

    • I just don’t understand carrying a shoulder bag in your hand. If it has a strap, use it or get a clutch.

      Speaking of straps, the jumpsuit has them. It’s not strapless.

  • Just Me

    Nice! She looks great and the outfit is slammin’…way to go Miss SJP. Way to go…

  • I love it till I get to her feet, which seem to be sinking into the carpeting.

    • StellaZafella

      Voice of experience here: The hardest part about wearing a Capezio like this is…no visible undergarments!
      Brava Ms. Parker!
      But Sam, ya made the pants too long.

  • Sobaika

    Perfect – never thought I’d say that about a jumpsuit.

  • hughman

    Clutch harder, honey. The snake is about to break free.

  • Introspective

    somehow this emanates fierce.

    and i actually love the bag.

  • aahlife

    i was hoping her softer eye makeup was a new direction for her, sorry to see the scary blacklined is back.

  • R.A.

    She looks gorgeous and very chic. Agree with all of the above except for bringing back the kitten heel. Yick.

  • Stella Zawistowski

    I love this, even the weird bag. The only thing I’d change is to put both of those matching bracelets on the same arm — it’s reminding me of handcuffs with one on each. But, a mere quibble.

  • kimmeister

    The straplessness makes the always mentioned bathroom problem easier.

    • Kristin McNamara

      I actually spy a teensy tiny black spaghetti strap on her right shoulder in picture #3. Makes me think there’s probably another one on the other shoulder too and this isn’t actually strapless. Her hair is just doing a magnificent job of hiding them and making it appear strapless!

      • mellbell

        It’s got what I call capellini straps.

  • Mia Hampton

    Hot damn SJP…you are a luxe bohemian goddess and I adore every effing thing about you inside & out.

  • kipper

    WAIT : Is Matthew wearing saddle oxfords ?!?

  • hyperionic

    Well there’s clearly spaghetti straps holding it up (strapless would probably be a saggy mess). This looks like workout gear though.

    • GillianHolroyd

      Ha! I first read this as “clear spaghetti straps” like on a bra. But now I see those wee black ones.

    • TAGinMO

      Yup. Check out her right shoulder area in the third photo. One of them briefly broke free from its cocker-spaniel-hair camouflage.

  • marlie

    I must be suffering from heat stroke, because I kind of love this on her. Sure, I wish the accessories were different, but the (say it out loud) STRAPLESS JUMPSUIT looks amazing.

  • Boring. I wish SJP would go to a genius hair dresser and get a new look. She’s stuck with the middle part which only flatters a youthful face. This isn’t to say she’s a hag or anything. She’s attractive, but the middle part should get thrown out about the same age as a tie on the back of a blouse or dress. The Kardashians need something new as well, but they’re not fashion icons like SJP is. I’d love to see her do something that is a bigger departure from Carrie Bradshaw. Most of us women gravitate to the look we had when we first fell in love and we were our most beautiful.

  • Rand Ortega

    Hate the bag. Love the look. Breezy, chic, simple. SJP & CB w/out the CB parody drag.

  • filmcricket

    Maybe those are flats and that’s why the hems are trailing on the carpet.

  • Just one time, I want to see her in little-to-no eyeliner. Okay, I lied. I want to see it all the time.

    • Aurumgirl

      Just line the top lid. Just line the top lid. God.

      Also: not black.

  • Terri Terri

    Enough with that eyeliner though.

  • MoHub

    It is really past time to lose the raccoon eyes and no-color lipstick.

  • Her face is pretty here and love the smile.

  • prettybigkitty

    Kitten heels can hurt. The most painful shoe I’ve ever owned is a pair of Calvin Klein kitten heels. The fact I still have them in my closet says a lot about me. No one said fashion was painless.

  • JP

    Better than she’s looked in ages. Though her hair needs a brushing (maybe it was the breeze?).

  • Junna Dragunevich

    it`s not strapless

  • If it weren’t for the Wrong Bag and the floor sweeping hem, I’d totally call this a WERQ. Soft hair, the makeup is never gonna change, and no one should look that good in a pantsuit. Good for her.

  • Anniebet

    She’s looking fresh and relaxed. I like the top half, but those overlong pants don’t give me heart tingles. The bag is fug.

  • plinkiedoodle

    Love. But can she not pay a gay to do a make-up redo for her? She needs it.

  • demidaemon


  • largishbearishAtlish

    delicious (minus the bag, of course)

  • sekushinonyanko

    She’s definitely pulling it off. If only she’d consider brown eyeliner. Her eyes are so light that it looks very creepy and harsh with the super dark liner around them.

  • Imasewsure

    kind of yearning for a simple necklace here but her chest is so beautiful, it seems a shame to distract from it. Love the outfit… ignoring the bag

  • alyce1213

    It looks to me like she is wearing lower heels, maybe 1-1/2″ or 2″ at most. Her feet and body are not at the angle for spikes.
    The jumpsuit is great on her because it’s tight and well-fitted on top, and then the leg flares.
    I think she still needs a haircut and lighter eyeliner.

  • JauntyJohn

    I think she looks like a million bucks.
    There is a delicate little necklace going on that doesn’t really read in the pics — might be just right in person though.

  • decormaven

    A different bag, and we’d be talking WERQ territory. Can’t sign off on that purse.

  • fbcreations

    you guys are the best. a different clutch (any is better that that) and some flat chic sandals are exactly the two things she needed to make it from a pulse-less ensemble to a fabulous one

  • a_liking

    I can only imagine what kind of serious structural undergarments are necessary for this to work…

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    And for the love of all that’s holy, CUT SIX INCHES OFF YOUR HAIR!!! I want to see your neck again!

  • E. D.

    Hate the bag.

  • thesevenendless

    SJP looks great; she giving really good face and hair in those photos, which is a major improvement from the past year.

  • luciaphile

    Step away from the eyeliner and no one will get hurt.

  • Trisha26

    No one can or should pull off any kind of jumpsuit or “jumper” as the folks on PR keep calling them.

  • ashtangajunkie

    She looks gorgeous. I just love her style.

  • crash1212

    She looks fabulous. I love that purse.

  • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    UGH. She made me like a jumpsuit. Damn you SJP. Damn you to hell.

  • queen b*tch

    She looks simply great

  • carnush

    I just love her. I don’t get the bag though…it looks like it’s from Buffalo Exchange.

  • Diego!

    I love it. I agree with the bag, it’s hideous! It’s an almost WERQ!

  • jen

    Damn, she looks amazing. And she knows it!

  • VicD

    This is shockingly good on her.

  • guest2visits

    Simple and fits her beautifully, agree about the bag though.

  • MannahattaMamma

    i can only ever see the eyeliner

  • ShaoLinKitten

    God this woman has an enviable body.

  • Julaine Haraden Morley

    Though the bag is too casual and the shoes boring, the jumpsuit looks great. What I want to know is if anyone else has noted or remarked that SJP has the hands of an 80-year-old woman!

  • Jennifer Bober

    Oh, please bring back the kitten heel. I’m tired of towering over everyone!

  • Lola Channing

    I just can’t get past the awful boring hair and eye make up.

  • kalisa

    I will never not be startled by how gnarly her hands and feet have become.

  • Liz

    YES! Bring back the kitten heel!
