CANNES, France — Sarah Jessica Parker is one of the most recognizable women in the world of fashion. Even with no “Sex and the City” on the big or small screen this year, she’s still a trendsetter wherever she appears. And at the Weinstein Company cocktail party for the 64th annual Cannes Film Festival , it was no surprise that the actress owned the red carpet in a white Dolce & Gabbana maxi-dress with embroidered details, complete with layers of pearl strands.
Unfortunately, Parker had just missed seeing another fashionista who made her way through Cannes, Lady Gaga . That didn’t stop us from asking what she thought of the pop star’s always-changing style.
“I think she’s in a league of her own,” Parker said of Gaga. “I admire her aesthetic choices.”
Parker, who was at the festival to promote her new comedy “I Don’t Know How She Does It,” recognized that even though both she and Gaga are on top of their fashion game, their styles couldn’t be more different.
“I think we have very different silhouettes that we choose,” Parker said. “I don’t mean that in a judgmental way. I mean that she is an extraordinary, and singular and unique person, and I have more of a pedestrian feel.”
As a red-carpet veteran, Parker knows how to dress for any event, but since this was her first trip to the French Riviera, she said she didn’t feel like an expert on Cannes fashion.
“Who knows how successful I’ve been at it,” Parker said of her wardrobe choice. “This is my first time — I may have made grave errors. I don’t think I’m in a position to give any advice.”
