Sarah Jessica Parker's hat: Uglier than Princess Beatrice's royal wedding topper?

sjp-beatrice-gi.jpg"Sex and the City" star Sarah Jessica Parker appears to have taken a page from Princess Beatrice's style playbook. On Wednesday (Nov. 2), Parker donned a  Philip Treacy confection at an event in Melbourne, Australia.

Treacy is in fact the designer responsible for the rather uterine hat Beatrice wore to the wedding of her cousin Prince William and Kate Middleton back in April. This isn't SJP's first time wearing a Treacy hat. She's worn the designer's creations to at least two "SATC" premieres.

The new hat is a riff on a black straw hat that appears to have been crossbred with a slinky. Parker was otherwise impeccably dressed in tweed Chanel and black stilettos. Doubtless, the attendees at the VRC Oaks Club Ladies Luncheon -- where she wore the hat -- were honored she chose to wear such a statement item at their event.

Parker is in Australia promoting her movie "I Don't Know How She Does It."
