GLAM OR SHAM?: Sarah Jessica Parker Pays Tribute to Alexander McQueen...and Wears The Most Dramatic Hat


Though we all adored her yellow Valentino moment, it cannot compare to Sarah Jessica Parker's look at the UK premiere of Sex and the City II.

The lead actress paid tribute to her dear friend, the late Alexander McQueen in a gorgeous black and lace gown from his Spring 2008 collection. The tulle and contrast of the lace bodice is so high-fashion, so McQueen.

Sarah Jessica Parker paired the look with a theatrical Phillip Treacy hat with sparkling embellishment and Alexander McQueen black lace platform.



While some think the hat looks like glittering tumbleweed, others think it is an appropriate tribute to McQueen who had a documented love for the dramatic.

As a sign that she is in mourning, Parker wore a black arm band with two stones.

Sarah Jessica Parker was a dear friend of Alexander McQueen and wore his gorgeous pale green dress to the Sex and the City premiere in London in 2008, also paired with a Phillip Treacy hat.


Here's what Parker had to say about the designer at the time of his passing: "He was talented well beyond his years, and the seriousness and unrivaled talent which he applied to his work is in bountiful display year after year and collection after collection," she said. "There has never been anyone like him. And there simply never will be. It has been a privilege for all of us to know you. You will be indescribably missed."


Parker was recently enlisted by the CFDA to present Alexander McQueen a posthumous award at this year's ceremony. And in other McQueen news, Sarah Burton, former director of Alexander McQueen's womenswear, was named Creative Director of the brand.

What do you think of SJP's dramatic tribute to her dear friend? Is it over-the-top or fashionably appropriate? GLAM or a SHAM?
