Sarah Jessica Parker‘s sartorial choices are usually spot-on, but sometimes even the most flawless fashionista has a miss. That’s what appears to have happened to the I Don’t Know How She Does It star on Wednesday during an interview at a ladies luncheon at the Palladium in Melbourne, Australia.

Wearing a bronze Chanel tweed dress and Manolo Blahnik pumps, according to Red Carpet Fashion Awards, Parker chose to accessorize with a Philip Treacy hat that, while a work of art, possibly overwhelmed her small stature. Treacy, a famed British milliner, was responsible for several hats at the royal wedding in April, and recently helped elect the Duchess of Cambridge as the U.K.’s best-dressed star.

Down Under to support her latest film and celebrate the Melbourne Cup Carnival, Parker has stayed dependably stylish during this latest press tour — just as she did while promoting the movie throughout the U.S. and Europe earlier this year. So the hat — while possibly controversial to style watchers — is likely just a small mark on her otherwise top-notch fashion report card. Tell us: What do you think of Parker’s hat?

I really, really hate the way she dresses.

She is such a classy lady. The hat is a work of art and she wears it with grace! Love her choice of clothes. Doesn’t everyone? Besides we’re not talking modeling here, she’s an actress and a damn good one!

I totally agree with Julie. SJP is so elegant

It’s the Melbourne Cup. Hats all around for the ladies, and this is pretty tame compared to a lot. She’s perfectly dressed for the occasion.
