Last Night's Best Dressed: from Carrie's crew to Givenchy's do

02 June 2010

And they’re back! Our favourite foursome brought their fabulousness to Tokyo last night and of course, sported more spellbinding outfits for the Japan premiere to really get our fashion juices flowing...

WOW! In true Carrie style, Sarah Jessica Parker went for an voluminous explosion of floral frou-frou layers straight from Vivienne Westwood’s AW10 catwalk, accessorised with a gold Raven Kauffman Couture belt to give even more definition to that teeny-tiny waist of hers. We’re very happy to see SJP continuing her support for our Dame’s super-slimming silhouettes — and how could she not after that glorious wedding gown she wore for the first film?

As for the rest of the gals, Kristin Davis also opted for a prom-style dress and returned to the classic benefits of vintage couture (click here for a reminder of the charming Pierre Balmain sheath she wore to the White House). But this time, the taffeta dress was made by Christian Lacroix for Jean Patou’s SS87 Couture collection before the designer left to begin his own line (oooh ahhh etc).

Cynthia Nixon was a striking contrast to Kristin's vibrant yellow in a simple (read: dull) black frock with an asymmetrical hem by her long-time favourite fashion house, Calvin Klein, while Kim Cattrall showed off her sleek new bob, off-set by a shimmering Naeem Khan AW10 number.

We raise our cosmos to your sartorial perfection ladies (and can’t help but wonder how we’ll cope without your omnipresence now the promotional onslaught is over..!)

Over in NYC, it was black frocks a go-go at The Museum of Modern Art. But this is not a) a funeral march or b) a Morticia Addams convention, no no! It’s a celebration of Marina Abramović’s ‘The Artist Is Present’ exhibition, hosted by Givenchy.

As you can see, not one, not two, but an incredible this-isn’t-a-coincidence FIVE of the startastic attendees looked near-identical wearing the charcoal colour of choice at yesterday’s shindig. To be more specific: Liv Tyler, Hilary Rhoda, Christina Ricci, Ciara AND Courtney Love (obvs) looked like a macabre, Olsen-inspired version of the Pussycat Dolls in their matchy-matchy goth frocks accented by sexy sheer detailing and frilly lace (all creations of Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci, of course).

So hurrah for uber-model Natasha Poly and ever-bonkers Bjork who mixed things up by ditching the sombre dress code with these dazzling beauts:

How refreshing, don't you think?
