Sarah Jessica Parker in J Mendel at the People’s Choice Awards: terrible or unique?

Sarah Jessica Parker is still dressing like Carrie Bradshaw as many of you have pointed out to me. I don’t think this is working for her, nor is her very dated makeup. From far away you might assume this bronze J Mendel dress would be ok without the glove things, but look at the bust and the weird diagonal ruffle skirt. At least she didn’t look as squinty last night as she did at the Golden Globes I guess. Like most of the people who showed up last night, Parker won an award. She got Favorite Premium Series Actress for The Divorce which – is anyone watching that? I have barely heard anything about that show. Her speech was really bad, like Tom Hiddleston level bad, in that she used a bunch of $10 words to say “thanks to my fans for sticking with me through the years.” I’m embedding that below. She speaks like Renee Zellweger writes. Something nice – she looks really happy and relaxed.


Victoria Justice was in Yousef Al Jasmi and I’m including her because she manages to make the lousiest, tackiest dresses look ok. I don’t know how she does it, but SJP needs some of that to rub off on her. Maybe it’s Justice’s styling. The beadwork on this is impressive, especially considering that someone probably created this by hand and had plenty of time to reflect on how gaudy the gold and silver ball sequins would look together.



Ali Larter was in Zac Posen and I know some people find his designs boring but I really appreciate his classic gowns. He knows how to edit well and I find this little red batik-print gown so lovely, with thoughtful details like a tiered bell skirt that isn’t too big and a split bust that fits perfectly.



Ruby Rose presented favorite song along with her costar Larter. That went to Justin Timberlake in what should be the only award he’ll get for that Trolls earworm. Host Joel McHale introduced Rose and Larter with the quip “Please welcome from Resident Evil, The Final Chapter – yeah right,” which just made me laugh out loud. Rose was killing it in a bright orange Veronica Beard pantsuit and goth styling. This was so striking.

    Ruby Rose looked great!

  2. justsaying says:

    I like Victoria Justice’s dress.

    Ruby Rose’s suit is okay, a different color would have been better.

  3. Mikasa says:

    SJP is definitely no fashion icon.

    • gogoboot says:

      I adore SJP , but she always looks too-try-hard gimmicky on the red carpet.

      She has a lovely figure, but it gets all covered with her costume-type wardrobe.
      In this she looks like an extra from the movie-set of Shakespeare in Love.

    • Bridget says:

      I love her style, but only on her. Though she grows more and more uncomfortable in public every year.

  4. paolanqar says:

    Ruby Rose looks amazing.
    Sorry but whaaat! I loved ‘Trolls’!!

  5. Nancy says:

    I actually like SJP’s dress, but why must she keep doing raccoon eyes. Too much make up ages you lady!

    • Esmom says:

      Agree on the dress — I’ve definitely seen worse — and the eye makeup. I don’t get how her show could win an award, though. The very little I’ve read about it has not been positive.

      Of this bunch, Ruby Rose for the win!

      • Nancy says:

        Right. Blake Lively wins as favorite actress! Lol. The same people who voted for the new president must have voted for the winners here. I am happy that Bates Motel, Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore got some love though. Great show that nobody watches.

      • Esmom says:

        I love Bates Motel! So crazy. And I love Vera’s style and demeanor so much. Freddie also knocks it out of the park. I haven’t gotten to the final season yet, though.

      • Nancy says:

        Esmon, last season was epic. The final season will start in February…..but as of this moment, not sure if I can watch as Norman is going to be more like Anthony Perkins. I liked pre-psycho Norman and man Freddie was perfect. The chemistry between Vera and him was off the hook. Okay, I’m psycho’ed out!

      • Esmom says:

        Yes, Nancy, I hear you on how unsettling it is to know what will become of poor Norman, I’ve been feeling that all along actually. One day I will get to the second-to-last season. Trying to find time to watch it with my teen has been tricky. And we both realize it’s probably creepy AF for a mom and her son to watch that show together! But the performances are so good and the craziness is addictive!

      • Nancy says:

        Oh Mother! Lol. I think it’s cool you watch it together! Time to get caught up… season approaching quickly. Rihanna is going to play Marion Crane. Going to be cool, sad to see it end.

    • gogoboot says:

      I’m a fan of SJP, but I think SJP has had work on her eyes or her face pulled a bit and now Her eye shape is totally different than it was on Sex and the City, which I watch in reruns on tv every night. Still addicted to SATC.

  6. Misti64 says:

    Robert Downey Junior was there too.
    It would have been nice to have seen a picture of he and SJP, the exes, together.

    • Jegede says:

      SJP has hooked up with some top notch tottie.

      She also dated JFK Jr.

      • gogoboot says:

        I always found her beautiful. When she hooked up with JFK Jr ,she was written in the press as being Smoking HOT. I never understood it when some guys said she wasn’t attractive during the SATC years?

      • Esmom says:

        gogoboot, me too. I do think she’s prettier in motion than in stills because still photos don’t always capture how engaging and charismatic she is. I think back in the day people found her to be beautiful more so than today because today’s standard of beauty has seemed to become so artificial and cookie cutter and doesn’t leave room for anything out of a very narrow norm. Sigh.

      • Jegede says:

        I always respect the fact that she never did a kiss ‘n’ tell about their relationship.

        There would definitely have been a market for any story she had to share!

      • minx says:

        I read somewhere that SJP and JFK Jr. only dated casually and it was of short duration. Whatever I read implied that more has been made of the relationship than what it really was.

  7. savu says:

    That dress looks crazy good on Victoria, and it’s even fun to zoom in on which you can’t say for every beaded dress.

    Ruby Rose owns. Anybody know the ID of her necklace? It looks Alexis Bittar-esque but I don’t think I’ve seen it from him (and I’m a freak about his jewelry, can spot it a mile away)

    • Lucrezia says:

      I have absolutely no sense of fashion, but I am pretty good at googling things … the internetz say her jewellery is by Jacquie Aiche. (Who I’ve never heard of, but the only jeweller I know by name is Tiffany.)

  8. Samab says:

    She sure looks better than her princess Leila night

  9. Slowsnow says:

    How the two last outfits are to die for (minus Rose’s lip colour).

  10. smee says:

    She looks like a poorly-done Stevie Nicks impersonator in that dress.

    But it’s her EYE MAKE-UP – last pic of her she was wearing silver on her eye lids and she appeared to have no eye balls, this time she’s doing it with black. Bad times.

  11. Chaine says:

    SJP dress is hideous, makeup awful, hair very dated BUT overall face/neck she look so much healthier than she used to. She has maybe gained some weight? Doesn’t have that strained too skinny look any more.

  12. Mike says:

    How do people find out who made these outfits? I’m s there a list somewhere or does every celebrity tell who dressed them? I could care less what the names are but it is impressive that people can rattle them off

  13. QQ says:

    Ruby rose by a Wide Marging, SJP Looks Like The disco musical version of Miss Havisham

  14. Lucy says:

    Ruby looks truly striking. That being said, I don’t get why she’s a thing.

    • gogoboot says:

      I remember her modeling and on OITNB she was gorgeous, but I also don’t get the hype with her either.

  15. minx says:

    Don’t like SJP’s dress, makeup and ombré hair.

  16. Michelle says:

    It doesn’t bother me what SJP wears because it is going to be off the wall and I have accepted that about her. She does need to tone down the make-up though. I always pictured her as being someone that looks beautiful without all of the eye make-up. What made me cringe was her acceptance speech. WTH was she trying to say? I felt uncomfortable FOR her…jeesh.

    • gogoboot says:

      Love her but ,She makes me nervous when she speaks. LOL I saw her on a show and she tried to answer a simple question and it was painful.

    • Odette says:

      The speech! Eeek. Second-hand cringe. It was a weird mix of thinly veiled conceit and resignment. To me, (at least), she projects like an egoist who desperately wants to be seen as humble (which is par for the course among celebrities). But at the same time, I detect a little bit of…well…sadness. Like she’s thinking, “Here I am at the mother of fixed award’s show; is this going to be my lifetime achievement award!? A rigged People’s Choice nod!?”

      Lots of emotions slamming into each other up there.

      And, that’s not to say that I don’t like SJP. She’s fine. Just commenting on this speech.

  17. Ninks says:

    Considering how hard and long JT has been pushing that dumb Trolls movie, it totally surprised me to learn that it was already released. I can’t say that I heard one single thing about it, or ever saw any promo for it other than the happy-rip off.

  18. Carol says:

    Why does SJP continue to pile on the eye makeup? Her eyes look like two little black holes! Lighten it up and she’d look so much better!

    • gogoboot says:

      I believe she’s had face pull or eye work, I REALLY do. Her eyes are completely different.

  19. OriginallyBlue says:

    Victoria and Ruby looked really good.

  20. Lindy says:

    Wow, Ruby Rose looks *amazing*! Sharp, classic without being dull. Just completely kills it here!

  21. I Choose Me says:

    I like the bronze colour of SJP’s gown and that’s it. I actually kind of like the bead work on Victoria’s outfit as well. Ali Larter looks great. Love her styling and that orange pants suit Ruby is wearing is awesome. I like her hair too but I’m not sure I like the matte dark lip.

  22. Tig says:

    What? No love for Ali Larter’s dress? It’s stunning- I love the fabric, and the fit is just right.

    • Pandy says:

      I’m with you – LOVE Ali Larters dress!!! Perfect for the event too. The rest of it is just ok. Except Ruby’s lipstick. No Bueno.

  23. KiddVicious says:

    I didn’t like SJP dress until I scrolled down to see the hem. I like it, not love it, it fits her well which helps make it look good.

    Victoria’s look is very ’70’s Cher. I like it.

    I LOVE Ali’s dress.

    I always forget how gorgeous Ruby Rose. We need to see more photos of her.

  24. SM says:

    Ok. It’s official SJP’s status as a style icon is the effect of Sex and the city not her own fashion sense. That eye make up is horrible and she is consistent with that look, her nails screen I’m an emo teenage girl, the hair looks messy and she consistently wears redicilous outfits that do not suite herm she is incapable to pull this look of no matter how many atempts at it she makes. She looks horrible. That’s it.

  25. kri says:

    Ruby Rose was late coming home, but I wasn’t too upset. I knew she was working. (Yeah, I love her, so what). VJ’s dress..I’m of two minds, cause that workmanship-damn. Yeah, I like it.

  26. Londerland says:

    Is it me or is Victoria Justice wearing one of those old bead curtains hippies and grandmothers use to keep the flies out of the kitchen?

  27. what's inside says:

    Ruby Rose is rocking it, but I am nearly blinded by the color, so very bright. Sarah is going through some kind of mid life fashion crisis — her look used to be eccentric, but well put together. Now it is just missing the target. Girl needs to get an style makeover.

  28. Antigone says:

    I actually like SJP’s new show (Divorce). It’s not groundbreaking or anything but it’s entertaining.

    • TWINK says:

      I watch it too and I enjoy it. I’m glad it was renewed for a second season. Not every show can be TWD ratings-wise!

  29. Anare says:

    Love the red pantsuit. Everything else is no bueno.

  30. Doc says:

    She looks fresh and happy, good for her. Divorce is a good show, somewhat somber, but good. I find the lead actor hilarious.
