New York Fashion Week had a star-studded beginning this season as some of the fashion industry’s biggest names arrived in the Big Apple for the Fendi show. Marking 25 years of the iconic Baguette created by Silvia Venturini Fendi, Kim Jones, the fashion house’s artistic director of womenswear collaborated with Marc Jacobs on a stunning collection that was “an interpretation and celebration” that is not only a wardrobe staple but also a pop culture icon.
Seated on the front row was Sarah Jessica Parker, the actor who famously said, “It’s not a bag, it’s a Baguette” as Carrie Bradshaw in Sex And The City, thus forever linking the arm candy to New York, and later, collaborated with Fendi on a pink sequin version. Dressed in a neutral-toned ensemble with a pop of color courtesy of the Baguette, Jessica Parker took her place next to Kim Kardashian, who arrived in a sparkly mesh dress. The reality TV star and entrepreneur, too, has a special relationship with the fashion house following the much-loved collaboration between her shapewear brand Skims and Fendi. Supermodel power was in full force at the show, with Kate Moss giving rocker chic style a spin in a strappy dress with black boots, alongside Grace Jones, Christy Turlington, Amber Valetta, Winnie Harlow, and Imaan Hammam.
Also in attendance were friends of the fashion house and stars from the entertainment world, including Stranger Things actor Natalia Dyer, Maude Apatow from Euphoria, The Marvellous Mrs Maisel‘s Rachel Brosnahan, and Academy Award winner Naomi Watts.

Sarah Jessica Parker Shares the Stories Behind Her Best Met Gala Outfits

Sarah Jessica Parker Shares the Stories Behind Her Best Met Gala Outfits

When it comes to the Met Gala, Sarah Jessica Parker has always understood the assignment. No matter what the theme or dress code is, the stylish star has consistently shown up to the annual event’s red carpet dressed to the nines. “Whenever I go to the Met, I don’t understand how everyone else didn’t spend 7 to 10 months working on it,” Parker tells Vogue. “The assignment is the theme, and you should interpret it. It should be labor-intensive and challenging.” In a new video, Parker sat down with Vogue to revisit some of the stories behind her memorable (and on-theme!) looks.
Parker’s first Met Gala was back in 1995 when she attended the “Haute Couture” theme in a black thrifted dress. Yet, as the years went on, the affair became much more theatrical and a spectacle—and so did her ensembles. Take 2006, when she attended the “Anglomania” exhibition with the late designer Alexander McQueen while wearing a tartan and tulle creation. “When I was invited, I said out loud, ‘I wish I could go with Lee’—we called him Lee,” Parker explains. “Everybody loved him because he was such a touching person. I have every pin that he dropped from his mouth and everything he cut off from our fittings in my possession still.”
Some highlights over the years for Parker included the glitzy, Studio 54-like Halston dress she wore to the 2010 “American Woman” exhibition. “Halston was so American,” says Parker.  She also fondly remembers the Oscar de la Renta gown she wore in 2014 for the Charles James exhibition. “This was the last public dress he ever built, to my knowledge. The [lattice train] idea came out of the boning and underpinnings of Charles James,” says Parker, who also asked if de la Renta would embroider his name onto the train in a dramatic scarlet hue. “He was so happy to have been talked into it,” says Parker. “He never would have done it on his own, because that would have been so immodest of him.”
Equally as iconic are the many dazzling headpieces she’s worn over the years. For 2013’s “Punk” theme, she wore a Giles Deacon dress with a Phillip Treacy mohawk headpiece. “I’m not going to say that it’s my favorite, but it’s pretty close,” says Parker of the look. “I had to sit on the floor [of the car] to get to the Met—because the headpiece did not fit if I sat in a seat.” For 2015’s “China: Through the Looking Glass” exhibition, she wore an SJP x H&M dress with another Phillip Treacy headpiece, this time crafted into a giant flame. “The headpiece had traveled from the U.K., and it arrived in customs, but it wasn’t in our possession—and it was Sunday,” remembers Parker. “We had no assurance it was going to be in our hands by Monday.” More recently, in 2018, she wore a Dolce & Gabbana gown for the “Heavenly Bodies” theme with a towering, ornate millinery accessory. “That headpiece was unbelievable and it was no heavier than [a pen,]” says Parker. “It was very Italian—marching through Naples with that on your head is not uncommon.”

Sarah Jessica Parker, now starring in Neil Simon’s Plaza Suite on Broadway with her husband, Matthew Broderick, arrived at opening night looking like a cross between a tiara and a ballerina, or even the new lead on Bridgerton.
On Monday, March 28, she walked the red carpet at the Hudson Theatre in a Prabal Gurung gown and silver heels from her own shoe collection. Her hair in an oversized bun, she looked the way I imagine Cinderella’s fairy godmother might. She had teased the look earlier in the evening on Instagram, writing, “Just wait until you see the front. No words right now. I’m sure they’ll come later. See you in Suite 719. X, SJ” alongside a picture of her outfit from behind.

The full ensemble is nothing short of gorgeous.

“A New York moment. A New York icon in a New York Pink. Tonight with the one and only @sarahjessicaparker Love you so much, SJP. Grateful for this moment, for you and for our friendship. Break a leg. I cannot wait for @plazasuitebway tonight. XPG,” the designer posted on Instagram.

The bottom layer of the dress is silk crepe-back satin, per Vogue. Gurung told the publication, “It’s not a bright pink, it’s almost like it has a light film of dust on it.” The outer layer is transparent silk tulle hand-embroidered with crystals, sequins, and beads. “There’s something very old-school about it, like it’s from a classic Avedon photograph,” Gurung said of the completed look. “It’s glamorous, but it’s still graceful.”

The play, a comedy, is divided into three acts, each following a different couple staying, at a different time, in the same hotel suite. Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick play the couples throughout, and the Sex and the City star and fashion icon is getting some excellent reviews. “Parker ultimately walks away with the show,” wrote The Hollywood Reporter. “Parker is giving the most, carrying the comedy on her narrow shoulders,” says The Guardian.

If you’re a Sex and the City or And Just Like That fan, you likely strongly associate Sarah Jessica Parker with Carrie Bradshaw—but don’t go confusing their personal styles. In a new video, the actor sat down with Vogue to revisit some of her and Carrie’s best looks, and she says the duo couldn’t be more different. “Carrie was a much more courageous dresser than I am,” Parker tells Vogue. “She has a much more fevered relationship with fashion, and much more indulgent. I’m much more of an observer.”
Since she burst onto the scene in the ’80s, Parker has made an impact on the red carpet. Back in 1987, she wore a vintage, sleek tuxedo to a Young Artists United party, along with other secondhand accessories. “I wore that peace necklace a lot. I still have it,” she says. “I shopped at thrift shops a lot, because it was a necessity.” At the 2000 Emmy Awards, we saw Parker adopt a more classic, Old Hollywood aesthetic by wearing a white Oscar de la Renta gown. “My favorite memory is himself,” says Parker of the late designer (who was also one of Carrie’s favorites). “He was always so invested, always cared, and took care of details. He also always smelled good.”
Parker’s life in looks wouldn’t be complete, however, without learning the backstory behind some of Carrie’s most iconic outfits too. The famed tutu she wore for the show’s intro in 1998, for instance, was not a one-of-one piece. “A lot of people claim they have the tutu,” says Parker. “Pat [Field] has one, Michael Patrick King has one, I have one. Filming that sequence probably required 5 or 6 of them.” She also reminisced on the giant bird she wore on her head for the 2008 film’s wedding scene, in which she also wore a structured Vivienne Westwood gown. “When I saw this bird, I thought the colors were so magnificent,” says Parker. “When I came to set [with it on], Michael was like, ‘Why is there a bird on your head?’”
As for more recent style hits from Parker? The star pointed to her many Vogue covers over the years, her latest one being in December 2021, shot by Dan Jackson. Turns out, it was a shoot that earned her some major cool-mom points. “I showed my daughters,” says Parker, “and both of them went, ‘You’re on the cover of Vogue?! That was very touching to me.”

9 Long Orange Dresses That Will Help You Channel Carrie Bradshaw’s Valentino Look in And Just Like That…

9 Long Orange Dresses That Will Help You Channel Carrie Bradshaw’s Valentino Look in And Just Like That…

You can tell just how impactful an outfit is these days by the number of internet searches it gets. Years after the creation of Google Images—owing to Jennifer Lopez’s iconic Versace jungle print dress—fashion searches continue to stand testament to an outfit’s acclaim with Carrie Bradshaw‘s look in the And Just Like That… finale. The episode, which aired on February 3, sees Sarah Jessica Parker’s character dressed in a voluminous orange Valentino gown, picked from the house’s spring 2019 couture collection. Within the next 24 hours, searches for “Valentino dresses” increased by 1,085% while those for “long orange dress” increased by 194%, according to Love the Sales, a fashion e-commerce aggregator.

While this is not the only buzz-worthy fashion moment from the cult-favorite show, this dress in a rarely seen color—and the fact that it was worn for an important moment in the show—takes the cake. Mainly associated with summer and all things uplifting, the color is a guaranteed head-turner. In fact, the happy hue has made headlines quite a few times of late—namely when worn in the form of a short Carolina Herrrera dress by Zendaya, a Giambattista Valli one with a train by Bella Hadid, and a Benchellal blazer dress by Priyanka Chopra. And when paired with the right statement accessory (like Bradshaw’s fuchsia pink gloves), even the most low-key of orange dresses is bound to look remarkable.

Carrie Bradshaw Just Brought Back One of Her Best Dresses From Sex and the City

Carrie Bradshaw Just Brought Back One of Her Best Dresses From Sex and the City

Since And Just Like That hit the airwaves in December, fashion-lover Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) has been wearing outfits that are a mixture of the old and new. In some episodes she wears new pieces like a Carolina Herrera shirtdress; in others, she revives old classics that she first wore in her Sex and the City days, including her trusty blue Manolos and Fendi Baguette bags. In the latest episode, however, Carrie returned to one her best Sex and the City–era dresses of all time—you may recognize it from her disastrous trip to Paris in Season 6.
If you’re a diehard fan of the original show, you’ll remember that Carrie moves to Paris to be with her new artist lover, Aleksandr Petrovsky. (She ends up lonely, and Big comes to her rescue and returns her to her beloved New York). In the two-part series finale, she gets all glammed up for a night out with Petrovsky, wearing Atelier Versace’s Mille Feuille gown with an epic tulle skirt (it’s reportedly valued at $80,000). Only the boyfriend never shows up, and she ends up falling asleep in the glamorous creation in her bed.
In episode eight of And Just Like That, Carrie busts out the dazzling gown once again to show it to Seema Patel, her real-estate agent/friend. “Do you want to see something amazing? It is my pride and joy,” Carrie says. “I’ve only worn her twice. Once in Paris. And once here, just for fun. I sat at that window and ate a whole thing of Jiffy Pop.” While the gown seems to have never gotten her epic night-out, Carrie has clearly held onto her for sentimental value. Who can blame her? But she does say that eventually she’ll pass it down to Charlotte’s daughter Lily, who has been helping her with her clothing archiving. Lucky girl.

Sarah Jessica Parker Channeled Carrie Bradshaw in Oscar De La Renta at the ‘And Just Like That’ Premiere

There’s been a lot of buzz around what the fashion will look like on new Sex & The City reboot, And Just Like That, which premieres on HBO soon. It’s no wonder why: Carrie Bradshaw—portrayed by Sarah Jessica Parker—is one of television’s most notable fashion icons, thanks to her closet of impeccable designer dresses and Manolo Blahnik heels. Sure, we’ve already gotten several glimpses at what Carrie, Charlotte, and Miranda are going to wear in 2021, but it’s still one of the year’s most anticipated shows for the outfits alone!

It’s only fitting, then, that for the series’s big premiere in New York City, Parker pulled out a major style moment herself. On the red carpet, the star chose to pay tribute to her well-dressed character by choosing to wear one of her and Carrie’s favorite designers, Oscar de la Renta. (Remember the Oscar wedding dress Carrie tried on in the Sex & the City movie? An unforgettable moment, if you ask us.)

Parker nodded to Carrie by choosing an Oscar evening dress that had a classic, uptown-worthy feel. The custom dress and cape was designed by Oscar’s Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia, and featured a sweetheart neckline, beading throughout, and a full tulle skirt that’s meant for twirling (a clever nod to the opening credits of the original show, in which Carrie twirls around in a now-infamous ballerina skirt). Parker then accessorized the refined look—which was styled by Molly Rogers—with custom SJP Collection heels, titled the “Duchessa,” in a pretty rose satin. The look wouldn’t be complete without a stiletto—it is after all another Carrie signature.

For finishing touches, Parker carried a bag by Erdem and wore sparkling jewelry from Fred Leighton, Larkspur and Hawk, and vintage costume jewelry. Overall, it was the perfect modern take on what Carrie would wear to a big movie premiere today—something that mimics the fresh, current lens that And Just Like That’s costumers Molly Rogers and Danny Santiago have been infusing into the show. (So far, Carrie’s new looks have included the classics—like this viral Norma Kamali dress—and brand-new pieces, like a Gucci x Balenciaga bag that’s hot off the runway.) If the rest of the series’ fashion is as good as Parker’s look tonight, though, we may have just officially found our new favorite show.

Sarah Jessica Parker Has Found a New “Carrie Dress”

There are endless outfits from the original Sex and the City series that fans have committed to memory, but there’s one particular dress that stands out. The body-sculpting LBD (more charcoal than black, to be specific) that Carrie Bradshaw – aka Sarah Jessica Parker – wears in season two, episode 15 is nothing short of iconic. Together with her breezy persona and knack for chic accessories – she wears towering heels, shades and carries a vintage Gucci bag – the seemingly simple dress has become one of the greatest SATC looks of all time.
Glimpses of the new installment And Just Like That – which is currently being filmed in New York City – suggest that there’s another potential “Carrie dress” in the works. Unlike her hero ’90s LBD, her 2021 style comes in an elegant powder-blue shade.
The dress (US $215 from Norma Kamali) is slightly longer, too: the hemline is just below the knee, whereas the original was a daring thigh-skimming mini. The update features the same ruched finish, but instead of a high neck it has a draped one-shoulder.
Behind-the-scenes shots showed the actor with her co-star Jon Tenney outside the glamorous Au Cheval restaurant in downtown Manhattan. SJP gave the LBD (little blue dress) a grown-up, modern spin with a cream longline blazer and sparkly sandals, with her hair slicked back into a tight bun.
So far, there’s been a mixed bag of opinions regarding the new series – not only for the fact that Samantha (Kim Cattrall) is absent from the reboot. Carrie’s 2021 wardrobe has been at the centre of online debates: the image of her wearing a dress from Forever 21 was declared a “scandal,” while others have argued that Carrie hasn’t aged as fashionably as they’d hoped.
“Just because you have aged (haven’t we all?), it does not mean you need to abandon your true self,” said British Vogue’s fashion news director Olivia Singer. She even went so far as to compile a shoppable edit of the outfits that Carrie – and her friends – should be wearing: Manolos, Molly Goddard tulle dresses and vintage Fendi Baguettes included. We’re holding out for her famed John Galliano newspaper dress to make an appearance. Come on Carrie.

This is Everything Worth Noting About the Sex and the City Reboot Wardrobe

This is Everything Worth Noting About the Sex and the City Reboot Wardrobe

Iconic American television series Sex and the City is set to return with a brand-new season later this year and with it, so will the stylish ensembles, bold humor, and scenes of bustling Manhattan. Exploring the lives of four dynamic New York-based women, the two-decade-year-old show is responsible for fashion legacies aplenty, introducing raging sartorial trends that defined the aughts: From iconic tube tops, tutus, and plush fur coats to cowboy hats and oversized sunglasses. With Carrie Bradshaw delivering chic New Yorker style, Miranda Hobbes sleek pant looks, and Charlotte York-Goldenblatt elegant day dresses, fans of the show are waiting to see how their favorite characters will dress in the 2021 reboot named And Just Like That…
There are some glimpses of star cast Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis, who have been filming the HBO Max series around New York City over the past few months. Parker, in particular, has been spotted recycling her character Carrie Bradshaw’s signature staples, like the sequined Fendi baguette that has now achieved cult status, Manolo Blahnik pumps, and the giant blossom on her lapel from the third season of the show. But before all of these, Bradshaw’s wide, studded black leather belt by Streets Ahead made among the first few comebacks, last seen with a few outfits on Bradshaw in the 2008 Sex and The City movie.
Additionally, when Parker stepped out in a Dries Van Noten floral blazer, her feathered cap was reminiscent of the giant feather headpiece Carrie wore while tying the knot with Big in the same movie. Back then, the original costume designer, Patricia Field, paired the blue feather number with a Vivienne Westwood wedding gown for the memorable scene. Interestingly, since January this year, faux feathers have become a major addition in fashion, with celebrities like Harry Styles and Lady Gaga donning the look, and designers like Bottega Veneta and Valentino assimilating the ornament in their collections. In 2021, a time calling for an end to fast fashion, the reappearing pieces – styled by the reboot’s costume designer Molly Rogers – are not only easter eggs for fans and a part of the character’s personality, but also send a message of sustainability.

However, this can’t be said for all looks emerging from the show so far, as one in particular sent style sleuths investigating the origins of a dress that appeared to have been from Forever 21. Worn by Bradshaw, the paisley maxi dress allegedly from a mall brand made fans question its adoption by a designer label-loving character, and the way it had been styled over a blue oxford shirt didn’t seem to help either. While the ensemble can pass as a more realistic high-low mix since it also included the Gucci x Balenciaga Hourglass bag and Terry DeHavilland platform sandals, it is the possibility of a fast fashion brand appearing on-screen that upset fans and critics. Forever 21 or not, the divisive nature of the looks overall has also led to a general consensus that the outfits leave something to be desired. But almost 20 years later, is it too much to expect the show to still have the sartorial influence it did?
