After honoring Alexander McQueen at last month’s British premiere of Sex and the City 2, Sarah Jessica Parker introduced a posthumous Special Board of Directors Tribute to the late designer at last night’s 2010 CFDA Fashion Awards at New York’s Lincoln Center. On-stage, Parker said of the late designer, whose work was displayed in an elaborate retrospective, “It was a privilege for all of us to know your work and you. You will be indescribably missed.” Dressed in a sweeping, McQueen gown with a colorful print and accessorized with 19th century antique earrings and bracelets from Madison Avenue jeweler Stephen Russell’s vintage collection, the actress told PEOPLE, “This is what Sarah Burton [who has replaced her former boss McQueen as designer at the label] asked me to wear. We met in London, we talked, worked a little bit here and there in a fitting. It fit fairly well right away, and I was happy to oblige.” And were Parker’s young twins present when she was getting dressed that evening? “Yes, they were!” answered the star, who recently returned from Japan. “They just sat on my lap. They were so sweet while I was getting ready. And I think it’s because they were happy I was home, if I might be so bold.” –Marissa Patlingrao Cooley; reporting by Jeffrey Slonim
