Premiere or Party: Which Sarah Jessica Parker Dress Do You Like Better?

Why limit yourself to one fabulous outfit when you can wear two? Luckily Sarah Jessica Parker followed that style logic equation and treated us to a glamorous costume change Monday night. For the Sex and the City 2 world premiere at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall, the stylish star stepped out in a bright yellow Valentino gown, accessorized with VBH and Fred Leighton jewels and silver satin double-platform pumps by Salvatore Ferragamo. Just hours later, she reappeared at the after-party at Lincoln Center in a lacy long-sleeved cocktail dress by Elie Saab, Kimberly McDonald geode cuffs and Nicholas Kirkwood peep-toe heels. We love the ultra-glam factor of a mid-evening wardrobe change, but with two dresses as different as night and day, it’s tough to decide which style best captured the high-fashion spirit of the event. Tell us: Which of Sarah Jessica Parker’s premiere-night looks do you prefer? Vote! –Marissa Patlingrao Cooley

SJP and SATC costume designer Patricia Field share the stories behind Carrie’s iconic looks on!

I like the premiere Valentino Dress so much better than the one SJP wore to The Sex and the City 2 Afterparty!

Lisa on

The yellow dress is much better but I love the shoes she’s wearing with the black dress!

Jenn on

Actually, between the four women at the premiere, my favorite was Kim Catrall. Sarah Jessica was my least favorite. I just thought her look was trying to be edgy and did not get there.

DixieGirl on

Love the yellow…the black is too goth for me.

Chaaya on

I think that the party dress it too much. especially for her age. I’m not saying she is old but it’s not her generation. The yellow Valentino presents a classy side to a independent women

pat on

I really love Jessica’s hair (for once) & her tan looks good too.

Carol on

Not to be rude, but I don’t get it. Compared to the other actresses in Sez and the City, Miss Parker stands out like a sore thumb. A long face, pointy chin, a big nose and “man” hands.

Lotusdream on

Really.. YUK all around with Sarah. I’m sorry if I offend anyone.. but honestly I think she has horrible taste. Very very rarely do I like anything she wears. It’s like she try’s too hard or something and it just doesn’t impress me at all.

jamey on

the yellow dress is much better than the black. but the shoes she is wearing w the black are frickin AMAZING!

irina on

I love the yellow Valentino dress, it is classy and beautiful, but I thought Kim Catrall’s dress was the most glamorous

Victoria on

Huge fan of her/Sex and the City, but….honestly,neither. The black one is so busy it takes away from her and her boobs look really low..1st thing I saw. Yellow like that, hurts my
eyes. The dress is pretty, but the color!!???

Sarah on

Sarah J.P. is not a pretty girl. Also, she doesn’t have beautiful legs. I don’t get it , why she always wear short/knee dresses or skirts. Also, her hair looks messy.

Brooke_satc_addict on

I love the yellow dress on her its not a colour just anyone can pull off. I like the black one, but black on her (like me) doesn’t pay off so well, it’s dark and makes her look drained, even thought she looked good in it black isn’t for her. Can’t wait for Sex and the City 2, Sarah Jessica is beautiful! Loving the new hair colour she finally fixed her roots! Loving it Sarah Jessica

s on

Loved the Valentino. Its very Kate Winslet. While the black dress was average, i love the shoes!! I wish SJP would have worn another shoe with the Valentino. Something more strappy perhaps?

Gretchen on

Not a huge fan of either dress, but the yellow is a winner over the black. The peek-a-boo cutouts on the black are tacky. But I LOVE the shoes she chose with the black dress and her hair does look great with the black dress. Can’t wait to see the movie!!!

jade on

SJP looks elegant and more beautiful in the yellow gown than any picture of her in a gown that I have ever seen.

Jess on

i LOVE the yellow dress, but that black one is a disaster. she looks like a cross between a witch and a dominatrix! the shoes are hot tho…

selina on

Ireaaaaaly adore SJP’s style.i have to say yellow dress better than the black one by far.u rock!

Heidi on

SJP always looks amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!! So do the rest of the gals!!!!!!!
