Cover Girl: Sarah Jessica Parker for ELLE
Enamel and gold bracelets from Jean Schlumberger for Tiffany & Co.
Sarah Jessica Parker posed and talked about herself for ELLE magazine’s January 2011 issue. Let’s assess.
On her reaction to being offered the position of President and Chief Creative Officer at Halston and Halston Heritage: “I kept saying, ‘You understand, by offering this you are going to be criticized?’ It took me a long time to say yes.”
On taking her role at Halston very seriously: “I said, ‘Please know this now: I will never do this for a title. I will never dip in and out of this. I’ll do it like everything else I’ve ever done. I’ll be involved down to the splitting of the atom.’”
On her design skills: “I might not have the language; I can’t always tell you the exact blend of a fabric, but I figure it out.”
On meeting the twins after their birth: “[Meeting them] is hard to describe. Everything is suspended. I can’t even tell you what other sounds were in the room. I loved them immediately, but everything—their size, the shape of their heads, the color of their hair, their noses, their eyes—was new to me. They looked surprisingly different from James Wilkie, which I wasn’t expecting.”
On aging naturally: “I don’t know what I can do about the aging. Yes, I am aging. Oh my God, I’m aging all the time. It’s like those flowers that wilt in front of you in time-lapse films. But what can I possibly do? Look like a lunatic?”
We’re probably being a little naive about it, but we like to imagine that she really is involved with the Halston Heritage line a little more than your average celebrity/design house collaboration. She’s certainly been good about hawking the wares. She’s worn pieces from the line all over the RC, not to mention in the last Sex and the City movie. We like the dress she’s wearing on the cover. The color looks great on her.
As for the inside pics (because there’s no way we’re calling this an editorial):
They’re boilerplate SJP poses, but we have to say, she does take a pretty good picture; better than the average actress.
