Everyone knows that Sarah Jessica Parker’s wardrobe for her character Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City is beyond enviable. From the high heels to the brilliant accessories to the odd little pieces that stylist Patricia Field works in, each and every item is a gem. For most, many of these pieces are impossible to own given their high price tags and designer names. But now, with the upcoming release of the second film, a boutique in London called Start London, is giving away ONE Halston Heritage dress. If you’ve seen the trailer, its the light pink floaty number that Carrie wears along with a silver turban. Here’s the problem – you’ll have to be the perfect size—a 10—for the dress to fit, but we say, good luck to all! [Grazia] Keep reading »
You may have heard of the golden ratio of beauty at this point. Scientists love to talk about it (I assume because it’s considered a “sexy” study and therefore it gets them more press). After all, the closer we come to quantifying that elusive asset called beauty, the easier it may be to manipulate ourselves in order to achieve it. And yes, that is sick and twisted, but it’s not my fault humans are the way they are.
Anyhoo, researchers at University of California, San Diego claim they have big news to share: They say they’ve “discovered the ideal alignment of female facial features, a pair of measurements that explain why one woman is perceived as attractive and the other, well, isn’t,” which seems weird since many a scientist before has boasted the same thing. But interestingly, these folks have some ideas on how to fake the kind of symmetry that will make the masses bow down and want to bone you. Keep reading »
“It has taken me three years to decide on the scent because I really like B.O. and I think it’s sexy. I wanted to figure out a way to make it palatable to everybody. I was like, ‘How do you get B.O. in a bottle and make an atomizer of it?’ ‘Then it was all about trying to capture the sense of naughtiness in a bottle that it would be good for a man and a woman.”

Catherine Zeta-Jones or Sarah Jessica Parker? I think Ms. Fashionista, SJP, really dropped the ball here, but she was only dropping her son at school. [NYC, 12/16/09] Keep reading »
“Nothing can really describe what it’s like to have two new little girls. It’s been very different than when James arrived, since our family expanded in an untraditional way. We didn’t plan on having two, but were doubly blessed, and it’s been just wonderful. [Tabitha and Marion] just turned four months old today! One would prefer to be held 24 hours a day, and the other is already suffering from type A issues. It’s been amazing but complicated because of my current work schedule, which I have enormous regrets about. [...] It is the eternal conflict of every working woman, and I am not complaining, because I’ve done this to myself. And I have a wonderful, wonderful nanny who allows me to be a working person. The great challenge for me is to be all things to all people; I want to be a great mother, and I want to feel good when I’m at work. But it is hard.”

In the December issue of Elle, cover girl Sarah Jessica Parker talks about becoming a mother (and loving the smell of diapers) and jokes that her two daughters, Marion (called Loretta) and Tabitha, will one day raid her closet: “The only tragedy would be if their feet are bigger than mine.” Having large feet would be unfortunate for the two girls, considering the number of beautiful designer shoes Parker has amassed as a result of playing “Sex and the City“‘s Carrie Bradshaw since the late ’90s.
My personal shoe collection isn’t much, and I’m not sure future daughters of mine would be thrilled if I saved a battered pair of London Sole ballet flats for them. They would, however, have fun going through my jewelry box and piling on the diverse assortment of bangle bracelets I’ve collected — from fancy to 50-cent — along with tying the million and one scarves I own around their necks. What from your closet will you pass down to your daughters (real or hypothetical)? Keep reading »
“I love the smell of diapers; I even like when they’re wet and you smell them all warm like a baked good.”
— Sarah Jessica Parker takes a break from filming the “Sex and the City” sequel to dish with ELLE about her twin baby girls, Loretta and Tabitha, who were delivered by a surrogate earlier this year. Her babies’ diapers smell like baked goods? Huh, I suddenly understand why SJP is so skinny! [via MSNBC.com] Keep reading »
She’s already launched Lovely and Covet, but Sarah Jessica Parker isn’t ready to end her perfume rampage. Along with the newest “Sex and the City” movie, Carrie’s real life fashion maven created SJP, NYC. Because when you already have two perfumes, why not make a trio, right?
The newest scent will launch in February and is capitalizing on the obsession many have with Carrie Bradshaw and her bold fashion sense. “A large part of the inspiration was what I now understand to be people’s impressions of seeing Carrie Bradshaw walk down the street and what feelings that evokes for her and for them — a real sense of freedom and possibilities, a love for the city around her and, of course, fashion,” she said of the new perfume. But, after her last two classy fragrance bottles, the newest one is a little lacking in elegant design, no? How do you feel about the leopard and zebra print paired with bright blue? Would Carrie approve? [WWD] Keep reading »
