Get The Look: Sarah Jessica's Sequin Mini Dress

03/22/2007 at 05:00 PM ET

It’s very rare when style icon Sarah Jessica Parker walks the red carpet in something we could even dream of affording! At a UNICEF event last night, the ambassador for the charity (and new designer) showed off her legs in a sequin mini by Alice & Olivia. The short-sleeve dress is $440 — which is definitely pricey, but not nearly as bad as the rest of her couture-filled wardrobe — and available at Or lighten up for spring and try the white and silver tank version, $398, at

For a bargain, try the other options we found for you:

On Sale:
French Connection black tank sequin dress, now $160 from $190,

Short sleeve sequin dress in black or grey, $90,

Would we call this a mini dress?

KT from Cda on

Nice dress.

jennifer in tulsa on

I would wear this dress in a New York Minute! JSP is HOTT HOTT HOTT!!

Elda on

Now that’s what you call good taste!! I love this dress it looks so sexy on her, blue just brings out the best in you!!

georgie on

this woman has hideous taste. the sleeves are weird and the shape is awful – sack of potatoes. and she should really go back to her curly hair – the straight hair and the centre-parting make her too long face look even longer.

leslie on

she looks freakin amazing!!

SJP dress is great. But does anyone know where Bridget Moynahan got that fantastic wrap dress that she was wearing on Martha Stewart?

Lori on

She looks great in this dress, very pretty.

KT from Cda on

I would of worn matching shoes. If you are going to stand out (which she does) then you might as well go all the way wear matching shoes. I’m usually not a big fan of her choices (yes, I know, I’m the only one who doesn’t) but this is very nice. But my eyes where drawn to her shoes.

Stacie on

She looks fabulous!!! Gosh I miss SATC!!!

Ashley on

I really like the dress. But ever since that “Family Guy” episode, I do see a foot when I look at her face…sorry!

j on

SJP is awesome and she looks FAB here!! not many could pull off this dress and in this color…i’m wondering if she picked it b/c the cause had to do w/water…

enigma on

I like how subtle the diagonal stripes are in the dress!! And, I love the color blue and I agree with Elda…blue does bring out the best in you! Enjoy and Cheers!!

SB on

she can pull anything off.. AWESOME!!!

As much as I usually adore her and LOVE her style, this dress doesn’t really do anything for me, it seems kind of dull.

Chirsta on

I love this dress! She looks beautiful and classic. I normally give SJP thumbs up for her wardrobe choices, and here’s another thumbs up for her. She’s got, for the most part, good taste, she can almost never go wrong.

I have to admire this woman. She is definitly NOT a classic beauty. Perhaps one might even say she is un-attractive…Her taste in clothes is questionable at best..Yet somehow she makes it work AND she looks good. I simply can’t figure it out.

katou on

maybe i’m the only frenchwoman thinking that but this dress is ugly..

Edward Desrosiers on

She has a great figure, and can wear just about anything and look fantastic. Very sexy

Vi on

I wish she, and other female stars, would stand up straight. No one cares for posture these days.

Oh, and I like the color, but not the dress, overall.

Night on

katau, I agree, the dress is terribly ugly in a studio 54, eighties kind of way. But I will admit she does make it work somehow. I can’t figure it out.

Grace W on

Who doesn’t love SJP! She looks so stylish and classy. Love the peep-toe pumps with it!!!
