(CBS) Sarah Jessica Parker donned an outrageous, sky-high hat on Wednesday that might even put Princess Beatrice's infamous royal wedding topper to shame.

The hat, designed by famous hat maker Philip Treacy, was part of Parker's outfit when she attended the Crown Oaks Club Ladies Luncheon in Melbourne, Australia.

According to the Daily Mail, Treacy said he spent more than 200 hours creating the silk and fiber headpiece, and that he designed another topper for her appearance at the Crown Oaks Day horse racing event on Thursday.

"She's the ultimate fashion icon," he told the paper.

This isn't the first time Parker has donned one of Treacy's notoriously over-the-top designs. In 2008, she wore one accented with flowers and butterflies to the London premiere of "Sex and the City." Last year, she wore a black, netted Treacy topper to the premiere of "Sex and the City 2."

Parker is in Australia to promote her film "I Don't Know How She Does It."
