Sarah Jessica Parker’s Red Cape: Yea or Nay?
The Sex and the City actress sports a red cape at an event promoting I Don’t Know How She Does It. But does it work?
It is a truth universally acknowledged that some people can pull off capes and others can’t. But which category does Sarah Jessica Parker fall under? Let’s find out! Currently in Moscow on a press tour, the actress donned a fire engine red gown and cape combo from Giambattista Valli at an event promoting her new flick, I Don’t Know How She Does It. But while the gown-plus-cape has a certain appeal on the runway, I’m not entirely sure how well it translates to real life. Don’t believe me? Take a look for yourselves. Here it is on the runway:
And here it is on SJP:
I believe the word we’re looking for is “interesting.” Sarah Jessica opted to forgo the head wrap and go with a half-up, half-down hairstyle; she also kept her jewelry simpler with a plain silver necklace instead of a massive gold brooch like the one pinned to the front of the model. And… I don’t know. Something about it seems a little wacky to me. Is she the pope? Little Red Riding Hood? Something I haven’t thought of yet? What do you think she looks like, readers?
Tell us: What do you think of SJP’s red getup?
