Here’s one way to stay cool this summer: do the top knot. After being astounded by Amanda Seyfried’s high hair and J-Lo’s beautiful beehive this week, Sarah Jessica Parker was next in line to work the trend, which we saw all over the SS10 catwalks from Erdem to Matthew Williamson. As we know, SJP is a big bun lover – who could forget the fabulously giant bouffant she sported at this year’s Oscars, and we’ve seen her sport many a carefree chignon as Carrie Bradshaw. But we’re particularly enamoured with the moulded creation she road-tested last night, with the unique plait-esque twisting effect that was perfectly appropriate for the Ballet Spring Gala. Not only does it make her look like a delicate ballerina herself, the style allows the high neckline on her emerald L’Wren Scott jacket to make a impact while bringing focus to her pale blue eyes. Try this at home for an ideal way to bring some elegance to any formal occasion, because if it’s good enough for SJP, it’s good enough for us.
