What Do You Think of Sarah Jessica Parker's Outfit?

01/10/2007 at 02:00 PM ET

We usually adore Sarah Jessica Parker’s quirky sense of style. However, we are a little confused by her outfit at the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures Awards Gala last night. The tulip-printed coat reminded some here of a shower curtain, while others appreciated its nipped-in waist. But, we all agree that the Giambattista Valli crimson frock (worn under the coat) was a flop — a voluminous peasant-dress seems more suited for a day on the beach than an awards gala. Even her Christian Louboutins look a little clunky with the outfit, and we never doubt the beauty of his shoes. Is this just a rare mis-step for the normally stylish star? Tell us: What do you think of SJP’s look? Do you like the coat and the dress?

I like both looks. I don’t see what’s so horrible. She has that tiny ballerina body that can pull off anything.

The dresses are ok but I love the shoes!!!

LOVE IT !! She often pushes the fashion envelope, and did so w/ this outfit again and I think she pulls it off beautifully … Kudus Sarah Jessica !!

The coat is very arty like herself, though I do feel like she’s a litle contrived. Like she’s trying too hard at being prim and proper. but the dress is frumpy and unless she’s trying to hide a pregnant tummy I don’t see why you would want to wear that. It makes her look bigger and she’s not!

I think she looks fine. I love the bright red color.

She looks great! Anyways, what does People magazine know about haute couture? Nada.

I love Sarah Jessica Parker..she’s so fresh. People have bad hair days…maybe this was her bad clothing day? I dont really like her outfit or the coat. I do however LOVE her shoes!

I don’t care for the dresses or her. Yes, I’m sure I’ll be the only one saying that.

Its not my personal style, but somehow she manages to pull it off. Sarah is a total fashionista! She is never vulgar, never undresses for her age(MARIAH CAREY) and always tries to put her best foot forward. I’m sick of Paris(shes famous for what?) Lindsey Lohan, and Britney Spears (get some underwear and some motherly instincts pronto).
Sarah Jessica is a dedicated mother and wife, shes someone I wouldn’t mind seeing more of. You go girl.

She is definitely still reppin’ the Carrie Bradshaw look down to a T! Go girl, you are probably the one person on the planet that can pull off that OVER THE TOP fashion sense. I don’t like it, but my opinion doesn’t matter, people are allowed to be ORIGINAL with their style and that is definitely an ORIGINAL type of dress.
