WERQ: Sarah Jessica Parker in Mary McFadden
We could have done this as an “In or Out,” because if we’ve learned one thing with this blog it’s that people have a lot of opinions about SJP, but we didn’t want to subject you to three in one day and besides, we wanted this one to ourselves.
Despite her (totally earned, in our opinion) reputation as a fashionista, SJP tends to make mistakes fairly often and they’re not so much of the “risk-taking” variety of, say, Michelle Obama, as they are of the “I’m not sure what people want from me” kind. For someone so into fashion, she can be remarkable inconsistent. In recent years, it seems to us she’s been having a hard time figuring out how to stay fashionable in her middle age while still giving the public a little of that old Carrie Bradshaw magic. To her credit, it’s been a while since we said she was dressing too young, so at least she’s not making that mistake anymore.
The way we see it, this is a great look for her. It’s vibrant and body-hugging and looks great in pictures. It’s paired with shoes that give the look some oomph, since the dress alone wouldn’t have been enough. Hair and makeup look great (yes, we know she wears too much eyeliner but at this point, it’s a signature) and the overall feel is chic, a little sexy, and totally appropriate. Maybe not as WERQ-worthy as Katy Perry showing up in a Smurfette skater’s costume, but we’re just the kind of queens who sometimes want to give the snaps up to simple good taste. You WERQ that shit, girl.
