WTF Is She Wearing: Sarah Jessica Parker at the amfAR New York Gala [PHOTOS]
Sarah Jessica Parker is the toast of the fashion world and one of its irrefutable darlings, thanks to all those years she spent prancing around in priceless couture as Carrie Bradshaw on ‘Sex and the City.’ She pretty much took Blahnik and Louboutin, which were already ingrained in fashion lexicon, and turned them into household names.
But every now and then, even she has a red carpet clunker — and the hot pink (red in some lighting) Maison Martin Margiela dress that she wore to last night’s (Feb. 6) amfAR gala in New York City is one of those very moments.
It looks like a muumuu, with absolutely no shape. The fabric doesn’t drape — it just hangs. The arrowhead print doesn’t do anything but add girth. If this is SJP’s attempt at Boho chic, well, consider it an epic fail.
We’re not sure if that black and white “thing” is a scarf, shawl or piping, but it doesn’t add anything to this mess. The excess material only overwhelms her petite frame, and it’s not a flattering result. Sorry, SJP. You struck out mightily on this one.
Okay, we will admit. We do like the color. It’s like a hybrid of hot pink and ruby red, which makes it stand out. But since the cut and shape are so old lady’ish, we’re not so sure that calling more attention to this look via color is really such a good thing.
