Sarah Jessica Parker

A few questions come to mind when I look at these pictures of Sarah Jessica Parker accepting a Vanguard award at ShoWest. Firstly, Sarah Jessica Parker plays a purveyor of fashion in Sex and the City. I think? So, why did she come to this awards show looking like an old lady/witch/fugly thing? Secondly, since when have horses been able to stand on their hind legs? Did something happen while I was asleep? Can evolution occur this quickly?
