Kristin Davis brought back the glamor of the Golden Age of old Hollywood when she attended the New York City Ballet’s Fall Fashion Gala.

Dressed in a shimmering, low-cut gown with a cape by Monique Lhuillier, the And Just Like That… star looked radiant as she shimmered in Fred Leighton jewelry.

The 57-year-old attended the event to celebrate her close friend Sarah Jessica Parker, also 57, who was being honored for her longstanding charitable work with the ballet. Parker, however, abruptly left the event due to a “devastating family emergency” which was later revealed to be the death of her father.

Parker and his family released a statement to People on Thursday that his departure was due to the sudden death of his stepfather Paul Griffin Forste.

“Our family is saddened to announce that after a sudden and unexpected illness, Paul Giffin Forste passed away yesterday at the age of 76.”

The statement went on to say that the star’s stepfather was “surrounded by the love and gratitude of his adoring wife Barbara of 54 years and children, including Sarah Jessica Parker.”

The 10th annual event was established to honor the Hocus Pocus 2 star for her “vision and leadership” while serving as vice chair of the ballet’s board of directors. Despite the tragic loss of Parker, the star-studded evening went ahead and Davis stayed at Lincoln Center to acknowledge her co-star’s charitable work.

Kristin epitomized elegance and poise as she wore her hair down and elevated her petite body in gold platform sandals by Sarah Flint.

It was styled by Samantha McMillen, who has recently also been working with Anna de Armas.

The Sex and the City star then posted a picture of her flawless look on Instagram and honored her grieving friend in the caption. “Dear @sarahjessicaparker was honored for her extraordinary vision and commitment to New York City Ballet,” she wrote.

Davis attended the event with her and Parker’s close friend, Michael Patrick King. King served as director, writer, and producer on Sex and the City and its two film adaptations. He is also the creative force behind the reboot of Sex and the City And Just Like That….

Parker and Davis are known to be very close, with Kristin declaring her love for Parker after receiving a surprise call from Sarah Jessica while appearing on See what happens live! in 2019.

‘We love you!’ he declared her, blowing kisses at the camera as Parker exited the call. Andy Cohen was told about their shared love of Moroccan food and how they ate together every day while filming Sex and the City 2.

Charity work is something the two actresses have in common, as Kristin has been a Goodwill Ambassador for the UN Refugee Agency since 2017. Her work with refugees has taken her to many Third World countries, including Bangladesh, Rwanda, Uganda and South Africa. ‘Awwww, thank you to all the wonderful people I’ve met around the world!’ she responded on Twitter to UNHCR’s birthday post for her this year. “I love our work and can’t wait to get back on the road.”
