Sarah Jessica Parker in Giambattista Valli - Moscow

Sarah Jessica Parker  wore this Giambattista Valli dress/ cape combo  to the Moscow premier of her new movie I Don't Know How She Does It.

She took a  bit of heat from some  people who thought it too much or too out there.  Me,  I loved it. I would love to  to swan around in a beautiful swirling  cape  How fun and elegant and just a bit unusual. And thats part of what makes it so great. It is unusual.

Fashion people are often bemoaning that all stars seem to dress  the same anymore and there's no originality but when someone does go "different" like this ensemble and dare to be bold and not look like every red carpet dress out there, they get slammed for being  too  different . You can't have  both.  This strikes a nice happy medium between boring basic gown and swan dress a la Bjork.  It's not that unusual ( capes are THE thing for fall) and I think she owns it aside from a slightly ill fitting bodice and the wash tag still hanging .  She's not afraid to go high fashion and good for her. 

** But about that tag- this dress is from Valli's couture show. Anyone else think that couture didn't/wouldn't/shouldn't come with tags? Who washes couture?
