Who could forget Sarah Jessica Parker‘s iconic pale green Alexander McQueen dress and butterfly-covered Philip Treacy hat from the Sex and the City world premiere in London in 2008? Well, not SJP herself, who picked another stellar look from the deceased designer — she told PEOPLE at the time that she was “shocked and overcome with grief” after McQueen’s passing earlier this year — for tonight’s premiere of the film’s sequel in the British capital. With a black tulle cloud by Philip Treacy floating on top of her sleek blonde locks, Parker is stunning in a black silk and lace bustier archive gown from the spring/summer 2008 line with a clutch from McQueen’s pre-fall 2010 collection (the same season as Cate Blanchett‘s recent Cannes gown) and pre-fall 2008 lace shoes. Parker finished the look with a black armband accented with Fred Leighton diamond clips. While we loved her neon yellow Valentino gown at the N.Y.C. premiere, we love seeing SJP push fashion boundaries like no other — who else could pull off that amazing hairpiece? While Sarah Jessica will be presenting the CFDA’s Board of Directors’ Special Tribute Award at the CFDA Awards on June 7 in his honor, we can’t think of a greater tribute to the loss of her friend than wearing his genius pieces in his homeland. –Melissa Liebling-Goldberg

OMG she looks AMAZING, what a great look only she could pull off. And what a nice tribute to the genius that was Alexander MacQueen. She is a true fashion icon!

Only SJP…

My apologies to The Late Alexander McQueen, his outfit does look nice on SJP, and it’s nice that she’s paying an homage to McQueen by wearing it!
