Shocking! Sarah Jessica Parker Wears Flats with Long Gown on Red Carpet

Sarah Jessica Parker was tapped to host the Irish Repertory Theatre’s Annual Gala Production in New York City yesterday evening.

At first glance, there was nothing particularly remarkable about SJP’s appearance that night. Yes, she looked glamorous in an abstract-print gown cut in her favored long-sleeve style. Her long blond hair was carefully tousled to look like effortless beach waves, and her shimmery blue eye makeup was thoughtfully matched to the blue tones on her frock.

Then SJP opened the thigh-high split of her dress, and we got the shock of our lives. SJP, the woman who inspired an entire decade of heel worshiping, was wearing flats to the red carpet event. We imagine Sex and The City’s Carrie Bradshaw turning in her ended television series grave upon seeing these pictures:

SJP famously proclaimed that she was done with high heels after years of wearing them on SatC deformed her feet. But we never actually believed it. Could this breakup between SJP and stilettos be for real this time?

The flats SJP picked for her hosting duties are the “Veronika” sandals from her very own SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker shoe label. You can shop the entire line at Nordstrom.
