The annual New York City Ballet Fall Fashion Gala is like a mini-version of the Met Gala. A little fashionable nugget to tide you over until Award Show Season heats up. Every year, Sarah Jessica Parker shows up dressed to the nines. (Does she ever dress to the sevens? Or the fours?) For this year’s gala, she wore a bright red Giles Deacon Couture gown with a serious 80s vibe. Did it work? You be the judge!

New York’s Unofficial Fashion Queen?

Sarah Jessica Parker has long reigned as one of New York’s most fashionable famous faces. She never fails to bring it—although sometimes “it” is pretty weird or unflattering. SJP never fails to make an appearance at both the Met Gala and the ballet fundraiser, and her looks are always memorable.

Sheer Madness

The former Carrie Bradshaw understands the power of fashion to captivate and provoke. At the ballet gala, she wore a huge, blood-red gown with puffed sleeves, a bubble hem, and sheer detailing on the sleeves and back.

Black netting covered her arms and entire back. A black zipper ran up her spin, and black buttons led down to ruffled red cuffs on her wrists, creating an intriguing optical illusion. She accessorized with a low ponytail, hot pink sequined purse, and glittery red pumps from her own line of shoes. The understated styling really sells the look!

A Designer on the Rise

If designer Giles Deacon sounds familiar, it might be because he designed Pippa Middleton’s wedding dress last year. He’s also been dating Game of Thrones and Star Wars actress Gwendoline Christie since 2013. He’s known for his quirky yet glamourous style. Expect to see more fashionistas like Sarah Jessica Parker embracing the British designer on the red carpet!
