Sarah Jessica Parker Pays Homage to McQueen at 'Sex and the City 2' London Premiere
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
