Oh, Sarah Jessica Parker is a saucy one! At the premiere of the first Sex and the City movie in London two years ago, she wore an astounding hat (well, fascinator, in technical fashion terms) that shocked the world and left us all to pity the poor person who had to sit behind her in the movie. Surely she wouldn't do that again for the premiere of the sequel, everyone probably thought. But then again, how does one top such a hat? And not just anyone, but a person whose most famous cinematic sartorial moment may have been pinning a taxidermied bird to her head? Clearly she had no choice but to wear an arm band and a bigger, bolder fascinator, the kind of thing a living bird could just perch atop without her even noticing. Her dress is by Alexander McQueen — a good warm-up to her presentation of the designer's tribute at the CFDA awards next month.


The head ornament is by Philip Treacy. We love it. It looks like a swarm of gnats descending on her head — but, you know, glitter disco gnats.
