Katrantzou: SJP stunned in my design

Mary Katrantzou thinks Sarah Jessica Parker looked phenomenal in one of her dresses.

The Greek fashion designer is a firm favourite amongst celebrities, including Keira Knightley, Kerry Washington and Beyoncé Knowles, who all regularly rock her creations.

However, when former Sex and the City star Sarah chose Mary for an evening out it was extra special.

“It's an honour to see VIPs and customers alike in my designs. Sarah Jessica Parker wore AW14 to the NYC ballet fall gala in September and she looked phenomenal, it was a really special moment for me as it was the first time I'd ever designed costumes [for the NYC ballet] and for her to wear my design as one of the ballets ambassadors was really amazing,” Mary gushed to

Sarah looked stunning in the floor length gown, which featured a brocade patterned panel in the middle of the dress and long sleeves.

With such a burgeoning list of A-list clients, it’s no wonder Mary chose a star from the past when asked who she’d love to see dressed in her deigns.

“Hedy Lamarr - a classic Hollywood star with brains as well as beauty!” Mary smiled of the 40s screen siren.

Mary was also happy to share some tips on how to rock her clothes on the red carpet.

“Wear something you feel comfortable in and wear it with confidence. And I am a firm believer in Coco Chanel’s theory of taking the last thing you put on before you leave the house, off!” she enthused.
