In or Out: Sarah Jessica Parker

Darlings, let's ease into the week gently with some refreshing judging of others.


Sarah Jessica Parker attends the 9th annual Greater New York Human Rights Campaign Gala at The Waldorf Astoria in New York City in Christian Dior.


Christian Dior Spring 2010 Collection
Model: Anna Selezneva








There's an angry gay part of ourselves that recoils at the idea of yet another Human Rights Campaign celebrity event (staff salaries and black tie events appear to be where all contributions to HRC go), but that's not SJP's fault so we'll leave that be for now.

The dress? Cute. Very cute. Good color for her, just the right length, fun and flirty without veering into mutton-dressed-as-20-year-old territory. As for the detailing, we're never going to fully get behind the messy hair look, but it doesn't look bad on her here. Softens her up a little. We're not loving those necklaces with the dress and we're hating those shoes with it. Still, the dress makes up for any missteps. She's an IN.

I'm with you. LOVE the dress. I love the shoes and necklace, but not with this dress. Can't look at SJP's face...I wanna feed her a carrot and brush her mane.


Love the dress on the model. If only SJP had gone for the full look, hair and all. There's something pedestrian about it, otherwise. Shoes a non-starter.


I'm not in love with the necklaces, but the dress looks cute and appropriate for the event. i give her and IN.


Are the hrc events fund raisers at leat? Or jus self congratulatory g"a"y-list events? If that's the case it makes me a bit ill too. Hate the shoes. Necklaces aren't right but stunning on their own


Agree on both the HRC (which I stopped even paying attention to when they showed how willing they were to throw trans people under the bus) and the dress.

And I can't figure out why you would wear those shoes with that dress. Am I the only one who thinks that a busy print like the dress needs a solid, or nearly solid, shoe?


Yet another evening of My Little Pony on parade. Whatev.


Clueless Jock

Not sure why SJP lengthened the dress - it looked shorter on the model. Or maybe the model was taller?


Love the dress but not with those shoes. She looks a bit tired, no?


I'm just happy to see a foot without a tattoo on it.


I like the dress a lot, but I think she's veering into mutton-dressed-as-lamb territory. Her hands, neck and feet look awful.

Ugly shoes, i agree.


That eye makeup she loves to do repeatedly really ages her. With sharp features like hers she could try to soften it a bit.


Blech. The dress bride's maid-y, the shoes clash (not just the color, but the texture too), the necklaces are unremarkable, and I hate the tangled bangles. Hair looks like she skipped a shampoo and pulled it back, and once again, she's wearing too much eye-makeup making her eyes look aged and tiny. I find nothing redeemable here. Heh. Must've woke up on the bitch side of the bed today.


LOVE the dress - hate the eyeliner and the shoes, so a mixed report card from me.


What's up with the neckline? It's different on the model - it's wider and balances the skirt better.

I like the dress on the model, but I'm thinking on SJP it's looking a little cheap. It's the bustline and colour combo. She should stick to fierce looks where she's all legs and hair.


I like that the dress is longer on her, but I don't like that the front of the dress is longer than the back.
I like the green jewelry with the violet dress. The shoes should be black. Still IN.


mutton! hahaha u guys kill me


The dress is fun and wonderful color

but the makeup, the black rimmed eyes OUT. Makes her look gaunt

the necklace also feels wrong, to heavy and clunky for the style of dress


The dress is good, and she's wearing it well. I don't like the shoes; besides not going with the dress, they don't seem to fit properly, either. Still, I'll give her an IN.


"Tlo said: staff salaries and black tie events appear to be where all contributions to HRC go"




I'm glad you said that.

As for the always gorgeous SJP: I think this looks much better on her than on the model. The longer length is much better. And even though those aren't really the shoes for that dress, I'm glad she got rid of the ankle socks it was styled with on the runway.

Those necklaces are tricky: That whole necklace layering thing is all over the place, but the problem is, one wrong necklace in a combo & you look like a Bravo housewife.

She's still an IN though.

I like the shoes and the hair and makeup.

The dress was a no-win look, a shorter length on her would look desperate and age inappropriate, but when the hem got lengthened, the dress lost its vivre.

OUT


Clueless Jock, I noticed the same thing. SJP is significantly shorter than the model, but they didn't make the dress to fit a petite. The end result is that, while the length of the skirt is good on SJP, her bust looks too low -- the proportions of the thing are all off.

That said, it's a nice dress and the color is lovely. I just wish it fit her properly.


Meh. Looks like Jessica McClintock having a dark moment. Not bad, not great. I often love SJP's idiosyncratic looks, but these photos aren't doing her any favors. I think she looks better with the hair down these days.


Love the dress, not the styling. Still gets an In from me.

BTW, this type of sheer overlay on the shoulders is what Anna should have done on the PR challenge, rather than that flesh colored, linebacker-making crap.


meant to write, "..PR *Campbells* challenge..."


In. I really like the dress; I prefer the original neckline but don't dislike the modification, and the length is perfect on her. I wouldn't like those shoes with anything, but at least they're not like so many of the currently popular overwrought shoes that compete with the dress.

And look, some day she'll let go of the black eyeliner and we'll all sleep better at night.


She should have Coco Chanel'ed this outfit by taking off those shoes! If the dress is kind of busy, black pumps are fine!


How does she go out without stockings when it's been so damned cold?? That always gets me... I realize bare legs look great with that dress, but just wonderin' how cold she must really be?
That said, I love Sarah Jessica Parker, but I wish she would lose the excessive eye liner, it just ages her so much, and makes her eyes look like little itty bitty slits....ughhh Does she ever look at pictures of herself?
I think the dress is lovely, and I prefer it longer on her. The model is veering into babydoll dress territory.


I love the dress. Youthful without being ridiculous. I actally really like the necklaces, but agree with you boys on the shoes.

Definitely IN.


GT said, "I'm glad she got rid of the ankle socks it was styled with on the runway."

Oh, yes, thank the lord for that! Even if I don't love the styling, everything looks age appropriate, and I appreciate that.

Speaking of which, I wish people would stop criticizing her feet and hands (though only one of those so far today). She's veiny - learn to live with it. I for one am happy to see that kind of reality.


I like it too! I just wish that the photos/lighting was better in order to show off the dress.
The runway shot was gorgeous.
Love the longer length on SJP too.


I always think that Sarah Jessica Horseface looks best in a bridle and saddle.

Honestly, I don't understand why so many folks are so enamored of her and her crappy style.


She is my age, or younger. She does skin commercials. And her skin and face look terrible. An example of where an extra five pounds would help her.

Out - too drawn looking. Too blah.


I'll begrudgingly give her an IN...not really loving this look on her though. It seems a bit matronly, probably due to the length...although at her age and for the event it's appropriate, especially when considering her tendency to go short and poofie. This dress is is a really pretty color...and I really like the black lace/shear over the purple. She does look a bit saggy at the bust line though...probably due to the diagonal cut at the lower bust line.

I'm fine with her hair...in the past I've complained about it when she wears it down. It just so long, heavy and stringy, and really accentuates her long face...so up and more controlled is better for her.

I hate the heavy eyeliner...makes her eyes look small and beady. Necklaces and shoes are both cute separately...but not with that dress.

Speaking of the shoes...her feet...eeek! Not looking too attractive with all those bumps and veins! Years of abuse with the high heels I guess...I dunno but maybe it's time cover them up?

hmmm...second guessing my IN after typing all this...lol!


She looks sloppy. The dress does not make up for it in my view.

Maybe this is because I work at an art school, but I could wear this look to work and no one would bat an eye. Except that they would think I looked a little too young for my age (29) because I'd look uncoordinated.

Her choice of colors for the accessories cheapen the impact of the beautiful color of the dress. She looks all over the place, and then she puts her hair back in a hair tie and slaps on some mascara.

She doesn't look event ready, she looks confused. Even her body language seems timid. NOT the sexy, risk-taking SJP we know and admire.

OUT. OUT. OUT.


"I always think that Sarah Jessica Horseface looks best in a bridle and saddle. Honestly, I don't understand why so many folks are so enamored of her and her crappy style."

Honestly, I don't understand what makes some people speak so thoughtlessly and cruelly about other human beings.


The dress is lovely, but it's too young a look for her. She should ask Nina for advice on how to dress with relevance and appropriateness...

Also, here's where the HRC's money goes, according to their audit: http://www.hrc.org/documents/HRC_AR09.pdf Since their fundraising and overhead costs are less than 30% of their general operating budget, it's acceptable under the law.


Not a fan. The hem is uneven and makes it look home-made. It dips noticeably in the front.
Don't like the lipstick or lack thereof at all. She looks very washed out.
At least her hair looks like she owns a comb, a nice change.


Hmmmmm I dunno. I love the dress and am glad SJP lengthened it. The styling, though, makes her look so harsh! Shoes are meh, hair...well better than usual, jewelry looks like an afterthought and her makeup is just awful! She does need to soften...as she is no longer the inginue she onces was. For me, she's an OUT. Sorry, JSP--you are not fab today.


What you said -- not loving the eyeliner either though.


She makes this dress look cheap with her poor styling. The make up and hair are just awful and the shoes and the necklace just do not work with this dress. Sad.


Oh dear. I love you but can't agree. The dress -- black lace over fuschia? in a baby doll silhouette? really? -- would look sadly derivative on anyone, but on one of us over-40s, it just looks tired. victoria


I rarely think she looks good, but I think she does look much better than usual here. The dress has an interesting waistline. It's Empire-ish but doesn't make her look pregnant. I don't understand the shoes, but like the green color of the necklace.

As for her eyeliner...I DON'T GET IT!!!

She has close-set smallish eyes. I have close-set smallish eyes. Therefore, I always pay attention to makeup tips for close-set smallish eyes.

The gospel is that you never ring the eye with harsh liner. You want to draw the attention outward, not into the inner corners. And liner that actually outlines the tear duct area definitely draws attention inward.

There are all sorts of theories on how to make the eyes look bigger or better or whatever, but the liner thing is pretty universal.


Ugh, I'm sorry, I really don't like this dress.
It looks like something I would have picked out for a party in 1997 when I was 13 years old. (Ooh, purple! Ooh, sheer fabric! Ooh, lace!)
I think it looks dated, cheap and tacky, and too young for her.
The mismatched necklaces and the ponytail contribute to the "13-year-old getting dressed up" look, and just make her age look more unflattering.
The shape of those boob cups make her look saggy, too.
OUT times ten!


Another note on make-up for smaller eyes: Demi Moore has small-ish eyes, though they're not as close-set as SJPs. A quick google image search turned up tons of pictures of her wearing eye makeup that makes her eyes look really pretty.

SJP, if you're reading this: I never thought I'd say this to anybody, but really--take a cue from Demi.

AMEN,"A!" Unfortunately most folks will remember TLo's off-hand evaluation as "informed opinion." As a professional fund raiser I know how hard responsible charities try to keep their expenses below the magic 30%. After all --

"It takes money to make money!"


LOVED it on the model. Not only because the model and styling is so pretty, but also because the dress simply looks better with movement. Standing still the front black lace overlay looks too dark (bordering on sad). When it's in forward motion, it reveals more of the pink. Given that most women spend at least some time standing still, the dress should come with its own wind machine to create the desired effect. I also prefer the original length because it's basically supposed to look flirty like a baby-doll nighty, lengthening it makes it look dowdy. True, the original length would not have been age-appropriate for SJP (even though she still has the body to pull it off) so she probably should have opted for a different dress altogether.

And I was honestly thinking the exact same thing...

I think she looks pretty gorgeous here. I actually like the necklaces, but I agree with TLo on everything else.

How does SJP manage to put on virtually anything, and look like she has just walked out wearing the contents of a flea market. The dress on the model is fine, on SJP it looks cheap.


SJP seems to pride herself on wearing mismatched shoes at all times--the more contrast, the wackier, more fashion forward she believes she looks. I blame Pat Fields and her clown clothes aesthetic for this ridiculous misconception...

thanks Brooklyn Bomber for saying it like it is. Every time I see a SJP post I cringe, because I know all the mean comments that will come her way.... and criticizing people's feet? for their veins? people get a grip!
Anyway, I like the dress (I'm glad she wore it longer than the model-otherwise she would have gotten the too-short for your age obligatory comment-) and I love the necklace and bracelets.... I love the layering necklace thing.....


Honestly, can we place a worldwide moratorium on the "horse" insults? If you don't fancy her look, move along. I'm sure that all of us have some celebrity whose popularity baffles us. And I'm sure there's some blog set up JUST so that you can go say "I think she's UGLY, why doesn't she have a button nose and orange skin like a real lady?"

I don't especially like the dress, but she's wearing it well, it's age appropriate w/o being frumpy and I even don't hate the way she's styled. Except the eyeliner, which really needs an update.

thanks sixgables..... why those people don't just skip the SJP posts, unless they are going to criticize her fashion choices? (as opposed to her biology).


honesty.not.pc

Disagree completely boys. She totally looks like mutton dressed as lamb. That dress looks like something a teenager would wear to a high school dance.

Why did she pick those shoes? did she just grab the first set of heels she touched in the dark?

OUT


i don't know. i agree that the dress is pretty and flattering but something about the dress is just off. it just feels very 1993 to me. like something a character from Blossom or My So Called Life would wear.


Thank you, TLo, for finally saying it about HRC. It seems every dollar you give them is used for postage to ask you for yet more money, and yet they put on huge events like this. I used to raise money for them and was a member, but I dropped off specifically because of this policy of theirs. It does take money to make money, but it doesn't cost THAT much, especially since they're already so well established.

As for SJP, agreed the shoes and necklace are awful, and I wish the sleeves would've been thinner. It seem a bit overdone on top, but I love the rest of it.


I'm not a big fan of the dress. It's dark and SJP can wear lighter, brighter colors much better. Baby doll shapes look much better when they are shorter.

Not digging the necklaces either.

SJP has veiny feet because she has been a dancer all her life. Perhaps your feet are beautiful. Can you kick them over your head? Didn't think so.

I see HRC and always think Hillary Rodham Clinton, so go figure. You can raise money without holding fancy dos all the time. But in the end, it all comes down to what you are doing with that money, doesn't it?


I don't like the eye makeup. I don't care for the necklaces. Um, don't think the shoes go with the dress.

How I used to wish for my own personal hair stylist when I have to dress up for something but now I am not so sure if that is what money gets you as far as hair goes? Maybe in these "trying economic times" every celeb has fired her hairstylist? Come on people I want hair that wows!


I'm not sure why the dress looks so much better to me on the model than on SJP. I think it's that the model has 1940's style hair which gives the dress a more retro feel.

I hate ankle socks but I don't like SJP's choice of shoe either.

Not to pick on SJP but I am the same age as she is and I realize that I just can't do the same things younger women can. Knees are tough - as well as bare legs and feet.

I'm not saying that women in their 40's should wear burkhas (sp?) but exposing too much skin will not give you a fresh look.

She would look much softer if she gained five pounds.


sixgables said...

Agreed! Calling people names is bad when for 3rd graders do it, let along adults. Criticizing peoples clothes is catty (and fun!) but not terrible...people can change their clothes. Making fun of how people look is mean.


I usually agree with every word you write, TLo, but here I'll have to go my own way. I think the dress looks terrible on her. Gorgeous on the model, though. The main difference? The neckline. On the model, the black chiffon(?) is spread out more so it looks more sheer and there's just a hint of chest showing. SJP has the black all gathered up so her her chest shows but the materials becomes opaque. Also, the hair is awful, the shoes are awful, and the accessories are awful. My two cents.


It's not terrible, but it's not terrific either. Kind of a bland overall look. More "meeting a friend for coffee" than "attending an important event."

Maybe it's just the lighting for the photos, which doesn't seem that great.


I so rarely disagree with you guys that this is almost a shock!

I hate this dress on her (love it on the model). I think the colors along with the mummified make up give a very strong Halloween vibe. It's a cute and fun and flirty dress ... on the model. There is something very dead about it on SJP. I say OUT on all levels.


Decent call on HRC.

I always check charities out at Charity Navigator before I send money.

Here's their take on HRC. HRC's overall rating is Good, but their Efficiency Rating (how much of their spending that they devote to the programs and services they exist to provide) is 1 star - Fails to meet industry standards and performs well below most charities in its Cause.


Miss Heather

Really, boys? I think she got this at Hot Topic.


another laura

Dress? Love, and thank heavens for the longer hem.

Jewelry? Me no likey

Shoes? Love.

Hair? No good.

For me the dress cannot overcome the entirety, although I'll give her an E for effort.

Out.


Not loving this. It's too young for her, even with the additional length. She ain't 30 anymore. The lace top really gives it a "Forever 21" vibe that just isn't flattering on an over 40 year old. Sorry, SJ. I think you look great but not in this dress. And not in this color.


Off with the shoes! Off with the necklace. Comb your hair. But still IN.


Love the dress. Love the necklaces - they provide an interesting contrast to the dress. And I even like the shoes, though they push the whole thing over into "too much look" category. But I am glad to see something other than hooker or fetish wear shoes. Those trends can't die soon enough.

The eyeliner is a disaster and really does make her naturally small, squinty eyes look even more so. I can't imagine why she (or her stylist) is so wedded to that look. Very unflattering.


Someone mentioned the silliness of bare legs in freezing February weather. Here's my SJP story on that subject.

In early January I saw SJP at a play I attended. It was about 19 degrees, windy and snowing lightly. The performance took place in an old renovated warehouse down by the river in DUMBO. On this day when every woman there was wearing pants, sweaters and boots, SJP was in a dress, wearing fishnet stockings and peep toe stilettoes. Turns out she sat right near me and I could hear her complaining to Matthew about how terrible it was that the heat was so low. I really wanted to say to her (but didn't), honey, what did you expect? It's freezing, this is a drafty old 19th century warehouse, and you're dressed for spring. Those of us dressed appropriately were comfortable.

I'm a fan of the bare leg look but in the right time and place. She just looked ridiculous and slightly pathetic.


edinamonsoon

I like the dress on SJP. The longer length looks better on her. However, hair, makeup, shoes and accessories ---- absolutely not. (SJP seriously needs to consider attending an eyeliner abuse support group) I'll give her a barely passing IN.


edina


Gotta agree on the makeup comments. I have light eyes and lashes and brows, and it's hard to find a compromise between "I have on no makeup and my eyes disappear" and "Someone just punched me out." Like the dress on her, though.


Excuse me, but the dress is Dior...if you don't like the dress, you don't like this design by the House of Dior. Making a bunch of flippant allusions to Forever 21 or Hot Topic hardly make any sense.

Now if you don't like the dress ON SJP, that is valid and intelligent critiques are fine. Complaining about the neckline being more open because she has boobs seems a little silly as the dress bodice would fit that way on anyone with a decent cup size. I agree the shoes suck and the necklaces look oddly out of place and cheap with this lovely frock. She also would have been better served with a softer eye and a bolder lip. Then again, whoever did her makeup should have made that choice for her.

SJP looks exhausted and too thin and washed out at this point to look her best, but I still give her an IN for her dress choice, her hair and showing up for the event, despite obviously needing to rest instead.


OMG I want this dress. Love everything except the shoes, especially the jewelry.


count me in as another gay who can't stand HRC. I've worked in gay nonprofits for years as a fundraiser and in other capacities, and can tell you they're just a huge PR machine for themselves. The Task Force and other gay groups will express their disdain only in private. The HRC has the mainstream media and the general public eating out of their hand. They take credit for other groups' work, and they're brilliant in sucking in gays just coming out of the closet with their flashy stickers and outreach. But talk to any seasoned gay activist or nonprofit professional who's actually working in the trenches and you'll get an entirely other opinion. The A-list gays who support HRC and attend their silly dinners know no better because they're content with themselves writing checks but not actually doing the research to find the groups effecting real change.

Sorry for the rant, but it's time for the truth to emerge. And to those readers of the blog who donate or would consider donating to HRC in support of gay rights, check out the Task Force, GLAAD, the Victory Fund, Servicemembers Legal Defense Fund....


...oh and i forgot to mention, I like SJP's dress.


for those who said that she looks tired, maybe since she is a mom of infant twins, she didn't have enough sleep? she shouldn't have gotten out of the house without looking super refreshed then??? oy.....


SJP: beautiful as ever. She was smart to lengthen the dress--looks very flattering. Agree w/TLo: shoes and necklaces not with this dress.


The color commentary on HRC is exhausting because of all the people who don't give money to HRC (anymore) and who despise it, but then find the spare time to hate on others who donate their time or money to them. Now there are some great LGBT non-profits out there that are doing incredible work. And these organizations do need much more funding for that work. But I find it absurd when a dislike for an organization leads people to attack others that associate with it.

It's HRC. Not the f-in Nazi Party.


HRC can kiss my ass. For over a decade I have faithfully donated to them. For the past year I have watched as they have provided cover for Obama to drag his feet. I swear, I cannot even talk about it.

Okay, angry part over.

I think SJP looks nice but I'm not sure about that necklace with the dress. The green seems not quite right.


Love your blog. Read it every day. Wish you would be careful about the comment that gives the impression that HRC uses donations to fund the dinners. There are HRC dinners in probably 30 cities across the country every year. As someone who has chaired and been involved with numerous HRC dinners, I can assure you that these dinners, like the one SJP attened, are huge moneymakers for the organization. If you don't like HRC, that's your call--but dinners like these are fundraisers--not drains on their budget.


I love starting my week with some judgement...

She does look cute! The dress is very pretty and youthful but still appropriate. Agreed on the accessorizing though. I feel like she could have done something interesting with the green in the necklace if she continued it in the shoes, but as is both pieces just look random. Nonetheless, IN.


The necklaces and the shoes completely ruin the outfit - she's out.

What a ridiculous and oversensitive comment to make. No one here has attacked anyone that associates with HRC. No one here has expressed any hatred for people who donate time or money to HRC.

Speaking of being overly sensitive....

Just because something is from Dior doesn't mean it can't be a lousy design. Do you have stock in the company?


Ugh, no
cute dress but not on her
she looks like she's trying to relive 1980's high school days


Relax, people!? My goodness.

Anyway, sixgables said

'I'm sure there's some blog set up JUST so that you can go say "I think she's UGLY, why doesn't she have a button nose and orange skin like a real lady?" '

oh the hilarity.

Now about the dress. I really like it, I think it's one of the better pieces from the collection, because it takes the whole nightie theme and makes it actually ready wear. Yes it looks better on the model but c'mon? rarely does anything not.

the styling is all wrong wrong wrong. Gold Silver/diamonds AND colorful stones? draw the line somewhere. I won't mention the shoes, mainly because it hurts to think about them.


Hey Zippy,
No,you and I totally agree. The Anons that were making the comments about how cheap and inappropriate the dress looks didn't like the dress, but were seemingly blaming SJP for their dislike.

You disliked the dress, they disliked the dress, whatever, that's perfectly reasonable. I am not a label whore. I just don't get the part where that dislike of the dress is SJP's fault. She looks great IN the dress.


She also needs to learn how to wear the proper bra for this dress. I see way too much of her black and white bra showing at the plunging neckline and under the netting above the bust.

She needs help with her makeup. Eyeliner like that only makes her eyes look small and beady.

And she needs help with the hair. For someone with such a long face she needs to give it width to stop the horsey look.


fashionablylate

I love the dress, but the accessories, shoes, and styling are all wrong. Have to give her an OUT.


i'm not dorothy gale

Bad jewelry and shoes. Cleo eyes. Other than that, the dress IS cute on her if not a bit "lamb-ish". OUT.


Brooklyn Bomber said: "Honestly, I don't understand what makes some people speak so thoughtlessly and cruelly about other human beings."

Me too!!!! It's not OK because she's a celebrity, there's no excuse for it...it's pathetic.


People seem to like to attack SJP as ugly because of the role she plays in SATC - they feel that it's outrageous that a woman who doesn't look like a stereotypical male fantasy should feel like she's allowed to dress nice and play a character who has lots of sex. Male or female, they're simply sexist, backward and cruel.

I hate that every SJP feature here is marred by that kind of trash talk.

I think she looks great but then I do usually like her style.


TOTALLY AGREE that the "horse-face" and other similar comments are trashy and cruel, sexist, and lower than a snake's belly.

She is an attractive woman who doesn't promote herself as a sex symbol or a "beauty." She seems to be a nice person, down-to-earth and sweet.

I give her a qualified IN. I like the dress but everything else is a miss. I do like the curlier hair, but the frizz is not becoming (though it's very Nina Garcia).

The shoes are awful. I can live with the necklaces, but they're not great.

I wish she'd give up on the black-rimmed eyes, though. They are too harsh.

And the girl can't help what her hands and feet look like! What is she supposed to do, wear gloves and ankle boots?


yuck! she is too old for the cut of that dress; same fabrics and colors in a different style would have been great.


All of that lace just made me notice how old SJP is looking. Not that she's, like, ancient, or anything. It just makes her look old, or makes me notice her age, or whatevs. Old lady necklaces weren't helping, nor is the condition of her skin. She needs to hire a buff young man to rub lotion on her. Or, okay, I guess Ferris Bueller could do it, but, still.

The shoes almost made me want to point and laugh, but then I got bored and decided to play round-eye (not) mahjong games online.


The neckline is different (I think SJP bunched it up so she could wear the necklace). Also the model doesn't have the black lace panel in the front center as SJP does. The runway version gets a thumbs up, the SJP version not so much.


I love the dress. I think she looks OK. I hate the shoes.


i'm with everyone saying to back off, the sjp insults are completely tired and childish. get over it. she looks great- i'm madly in love with that dress.


I love everything about SJP look here. Dress, necklaces, and shoes. She's not a copycat. She did it her way, and it works. IN
