Sarah Jessica Parker for Vogue
Our new mascot, Sarah Jessica Parker appeared in a Vogue editorial this month promoting the new Sex and the City movie with her Mr. Big, Chris Noth. In short, it’s freaking fabulous. This, to us, is what fashion is really all about; taking the clothes off the runway and making them shine. Say what you will about SJP: that she’s over-exposed or over-rated; that she’s too much of a shill and too little of an actress. We don’t care. The bitch knows. How. To. Wear. Clothes. Every single look looks better on her than it did on the runway. And like we said, that’s what it’s all about, kittens.

“Sarah Jessica says that the only connecting thing between her style and Carrie’s is that “we will both try anything. I will try anything for Carrie, and I will try anything for me.” She adds that “in real life I never dressed the way she dressed, nor would I.” However, she does concede that playing Carrie educated her sartorially. “I grew up in a house of matching. You know, our hair ribbons matched our dress, and our pinafore matched our socks. You didn’t clash colors. What I learned by being around Pat Field was there shouldn’t be rules in fashion. Things shouldn’t go together. And that’s the thing that really changed in my own world and the way I choose to dress.”
