So many Well Played fashion moments this week, so little time. Natalie Portman and Sarah Jessica Parker brought out the big guns for the New York City Ballet Fall Gala (someday I hope to be fancy enough to be invited to a “gala” or some sort), Eva Mendes looked radiant at Vanidades’s Icons of Style Gala, Miranda Kerr worked it the opening night of Romeo & Juliet on Broadway, and Blake Lively rocked a cool pantsuit situation at the Beauty in Wonderland event in Milan. Which star do you think was the best dressed of the week?
Sarah Jessica Parker wore this badass leather jacket/distressed jeans combo out on a walk with her kids in NYC, and I’m dying to recreate it (have I mentioned I’m totally fine buying jeans full of holes, but I am firmly against the concept of pre-scuffed shoes?). I found similar pieces to get SJP’s cool mom look, and the best part? Everything’s 60 bucks or less. Read on for shopping details! Keep reading »
Well now. Is this Sarah Jessica Parker, or Jocelyn Wildenstein in her better days? Neither? Ooookay, moving right along then. [Huffington Post]
I just don’t get it, SJP. Aren’t you supposed to be, like, a fashion thing? I’m cool with the dress, even though it looks kind of like a Thanksgiving tablecloth, but paired with snakeskin pumps in Lisa Frank’s favorite colors and a blue velvet purse, I can’t help but feel like even Carrie Bradshaw would get all judgy on this one. This isn’t a look, it’s just like, items.
“I don’t love the idea of playing another woman who loves fashion and is slightly flawed in New York City. I loved Carrie, and I don’t want to do the poor man’s version of her. And while those are often the lucrative things to do, it’s more reason to look in the other direction.”
–Carrie Bradshaw, er, I mean, Sarah Jessica Parker tells Elle that her days of playing Carrie clones are over. I’m not sure I totally believe this, but it’s definitely an encouraging thought, and I look forward to seeing what SJP has in store for us now that she’s officially hanging up her Manolos. In other news, I need that necklace in my jewelry box, like, now. [Huffington Post]
