Yay or Nay: Black Bras with White Tops?

By Kim Anne Mar 9, 2012 7:44PM
Sarah Jessica Parker can pull off just about anything—and she certainly has done her fair share of fashion experimentation throughout the years. 

And a recent trip to the Louis Vuitton show during Paris Fashion Week was no exception to the “Sarah Jessica Parker can pull off anything” concept.

The “Sex and the City” star popped a squat front row at the fashion show wearing a white dress with see-through lace detailing that she accessorized with—wait for it—a black bra that was definitely noticeable through the shirt.

Although the trend was somewhat risqué, I think she pulled it off, as usual. But others may argue that wearing a black bra underneath a white shirt is trashy, not classy. 

Tell us—are sheer shirts ever ok, or do you think everyone--including SJP—should steer clear?

there are certain people that can wear anything.  but, like I said only a few.  what happens with looks this is far to many people who shouldn't try this type of fashion will.   what is up with the way a lot of people stand.  like they don't know what to do with their legs or feet?  she looks bent at the knees!

The photo pulls it off. Yet, in person, Sarah probably looked a bit trashy. PA AkRS.

i thought that when you put a thumbs up or down, it was in response to whether you agree with what the person said.  and not your response to the question. if you don't agree with the question and give a thumbs down, it may actually be a thumbs up, because, the answer of the commenter was in effect a thumbs down. so a thumbs down to a thumbs down is a thumbs up. please tell me what you think? i'm getting confused.

I dislike the black bra look. Even on Sarah Jessica Parker it looks tacky. I think women would look much better in flattering clothing instead of trying to make a statement.

SJP can get away with just about anything she puts on.  I just hope that other "hopeful wannabes" don´t try this at home and try to make it a trend because other than SJP it is trashy!
