Sarah Jessica Parker is known for her fashion finesse, but she may have outdone herself this time. The Sex and the City star arrived at the 2019 New York City Ballet Fall Fashion Gala in Manhattan wearing a larger-than-life, fuschia ball gown.
Parker, 54, turned heads when she arrived at the David H. Koch Theater in Lincoln Center wearing a hot pink, ruffled gown that practically swallowed her tiny frame.
Parker’s gown featured a bustier-style top with a ruched bodice, puffed sleeves, an overflowing skirt, and hefty train. According to Just Jared, the regal gown is by Zac Pose from his Fall/Winter 2019 collection.
Parker paired the gown with a Tyler Ellis clutch and HStern jewelry. The HBO star’s hair was swept into a tight, high, ballerina-inspired bun which showed off her gorgeous diamond stud earrings.
While Parker’s elaborate gala gown was a head-turner, she managed to keep one detail of her outfit was well hidden. Underneath the voluminous gown, Parker was wearing mismatched shoes.
The Daily Mail posted photos and a video of Parker looking very much like her Sex and the City alter-ego, Carrie Bradshaw, as she descended down the steps of her New York City brownstone on her way to the gala wearing mismatched heels. One shoe was a matching hot pink shade and the other was mustard yellow.

One of those nights. So magical you need proof it really happened. To all friends and patrons who joined us last night and every year at our Fall Gala, to our wonderful designers @zacposen @annasui who brought all their skill and devotion, to our inspired choreographers @laurenlovette @edwaardliang, to the rapturous orchestra and it's leader Andrew Litton and to the extraordinary dancers of the @nycballet who are deservedly on the receiving end of bravos after every performance I am indebted, in awe and most grateful.

The Daily Mail notes that Carrie Bradshaw purposely wore mismatched heels in the Season 3 SATC episode “Escape from New York.” While fans of the Emmy-winning HBO series were perplexed by the character’s mismatched shoes, it was all in good fun. Parker later told Instagram fans she pulled off the lighthearted fashion move with Sex and the City’s costume designer Patricia Field as they each chose one shoe for Carrie to wear.
In addition to Parker, the 2019 New York City Ballet Fall Fashion Gala was attended by celebrities like Andy Cohen, Amy Sedaris, Brooke Shields, Carrie Ann Inaba, Laverne Cox, and Kelly Ripa. Zac Posen was also there.
Parker was more than just an attendee at the gala. The actress, designer, and wine guru is a loyal supporter of the New York City Ballet. Earlier this week, Parker announced that she temporarily joined the popular celebrity video message service Cameo to help raise funds for the NYC Ballet gala. Parker posted several personalized messages as she raised thousands of dollars for her cause.
