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?

For all we know, she’s poking fun at the ridiculous fashions that the starlets have worn and decidedly wore a more demure look in response–I say, bravo!

SJP usually looks put together in just about anything but I don’t think the cut of the dress is flattering on her. The poofiness is a bit much. The coat has a prettiness to it but overall it’s just okay.

SJP knows clothes and is one of the only actress’ in hollywood that understands fashion without the help of a stylist. If anyone in this magazine knew anything about fashion they would know that feminine volume, chunkey heels and florals are the biggest looks of spring ’07. Do your homework People.

LOVE the coat, dislike the dress.

It works for her. On anyone else who didnt know how to work it or have that much confidence, it would not work.

She looks brilliant, as always.

Right up her alley- she wore this type of fashion during SATC. Me, persoanlly, would never wear it but on her it works.

I normally like her style. However, in these pictures, I don’t like either one :(

Why is it a crime for a woman to wear something that might make her look alittle bigger? What is wrong with looking bigger? We complain that skinny woman are starving themselves, then a person as thin as SJP wears a non-figure-hugging-outfit, and we slam her for adding volume! Why not save a girl from disappearing into a size negative-00, and let a woman dress daringly bigger if they choose. Women especially, should give other women a break when it comes to controlling them through weight and appearance. I’m sick of seeing boys’ bodies passing for feminine forms! Remember, Hollywood should only be an illusion- not reality.

I do hate what she is wearing but since she has a natural class, everything looks good on her ! but she should definately change her stylist !
