Sarah Jessica Parker
has been on the promo trail for I Don't Know How She Does It
for so long that when we saw these pictures of her Down Under in her bright yellow Vera Wang
dress we assumed it was a photocall for a new film. It isn't.
Anyway, back to the topic in hand: Is the dress hot or not?
We'd like to venture a 'not'. Mostly because, rather than adding a pleasing touch of abstract colour, the central watercolour-print makes it look like SJP is wearing a plain yellow silk dress that got horribly stained in transit.
The overall effect is that Vera Wang took the Prabal Gurung Resort 2012 dress the actress wore in London and separated out the colours by dipping the end of the dress in acetone. It's a technique she learned in high school when her class did that paper chromatography experiment.
