SJP vs. Full-Length Dresses — Petites, Take Note

Many petite ladies wouldn't dare go near — let alone wear — a floor-grazing gown like the one Sarah Jessica Parker did to this week's amfAR Inspiration Gala. But, we've got to hand it to her: SJP came, she conquered, and this photo is nothing short of flawless. Despite the train of fabric pooled at Parker's feet (generally a no-no for the 5-foot-3-and-under crowd), she managed to look both elegant and effortless in her chiffon Schiaparelli confection as she walked — no, floated — down the red carpet.
Clearly, there's hope for us height-challenged gals yet. Finding the right fit and style — in this case, billowy and bohemian — is the first step. And, wearing it with confidence is key. So, if you're in hot pursuit of a similar style that will show off your short frame, click ahead to shop a few prime, petite picks. We can practically feel the fabric swimming around our toes already.
