SJP Will Always Be Carrie Bradshaw To Me

Tuesday, 18 June 2013

Has there ever been a more amazing style icon than Sarah Jessica Parker? Or more to the point, has there ever been a more unique style icon than her alter ego, Carrie Bradshaw? Not it my mind.

From the moment I saw her in the opening credits of Sex And The City, wearing her famous tank top and tutu combination, it was love.

Of course, the incredible fashion we saw on the show was mostly a credit to SATC's costume designer, Patricia Field. SJP first met Patricia in 1995 and fell so in love with her collections, that she requested to have Patricia design some of Carrie's clothes for SATC. Before long, the show became famous for its incredible fashion and Patricia was nominated for Emmy's and Costume Designers Guild awards.

As high end as most of Carrie's outfits were, Patricia was also a big fan of vintage and would often spend weekends searching thrift stores for beautiful pieces to ad to Carrie's wardroble. Carrie was the queen of pairing high-end with low-end and pulling it off seamlessly.


When it came to Carrie and Big's long awaited wedding, I don't think there was any doubt in anyone's mind that her dress would be anything but ordinary. Who could forget that incredible Vivienne Westwood gown? Not to mention the blue & green feather head-dress attached to her veil! Only Carrie could wear a giant feather on her head and look amazing!

In true Carrie Bradshaw fashion, SJP is set to release her own shoe collection in 2014. What took her so long, right? Sarah will be teaming up with the CEO of Manolo Blahnik, George Malkemus, for her line of shoes, bags and trench coats. The line is set to be called "SJP".

I can't wait!
