Sarah Jessica Parker has be bringing out the fashion big guns for her promo tour for the upcoming flick I Don’t Know How She Does It. Case in point: The actress wore a flaming red Giambattista Valli couture gown, complete with a dramatic matching cape, for the movie’s Moscow premiere this past weekend.

But our favourite looks so far (we’re expecting a great many more from this media blitz) have been two Prabal Gurung dresses that the actress has sported while performing her daytime duties. In Moscow, SJP wore a sleek-fitting dress with a playful lace motif from the designer’s Fall 2011 collection. And this morning in London it was a black and yellow colour-blocked piece cut with stripes of grey flowers and topped with hot pink roses. Though lace and florals in conservative cuts are clichés of lady-like dressing, the outsized print and nearly-clashing hues of this pair of Prabals takes the stuffing right out. Who says demure can’t be dramatic?
