While I am empathetic to the plight of the CW’s morning show “Eye Opener,” which I did not know existed until I saw this clip, and their desperate need to drum up controversy and attention, their sexist stunt right on the heels of chitchatting about a sexist stunt is beyond idiotic. On Friday, two male and one female hosts were gabbing about Gretchen Carlson jokingly walking off the “Fox & Friends” set after her male co-host made a sexist remark. After a little bit of banter about how the male cohosts had better behave themselves, one of them introduces the show’s next segment about Barack Obama fundaraiser like this: “Is a dog campaigning for Obama? No, not Sarah Jessica Parker!” Hardy-har-har. (Also? People say she looks like a horse, not a dog.) Now go back into obscurity where you belong and learn some grownup humor. [Think Progress]
Sarah Jessica Parker wore this flowy bohemian outfit for a stroll around her NYC neighborhood recently, and now we’re dying to recreate it–especially that adorable button-front skirt. Want to get this casual summer look for yourself? We’ve got all the pieces (for $50 or less!) after the jump… Keep reading »
I’m not trying to be a jerk, but there’s something kind of inappropriate about seeing Sarah Jessica Parker’s bra at this point, don’t you think? It’s like, geez, just put it away already, okay? That said, you know I love a sheer lace thing.
Understandably, the role of a high school-aged Carrie Bradshaw is highly coveted among legions of young actresses, but the character that led Sarah Jessica Parker to enduring fame leaves behind some seriously big shoes (Manolos, naturally) for a starlet to fill. “The Carrie Diaries,” Candace Bushnell’s prequel novel to the much-loved series, is coming to life on the small screen, and AnnaSophia Robb has snagged the eponymous role. A number of others were rumored to be in talks for the part, including Blake Lively and Elizabeth Olsen, but the 18-year-old actress best recognized for 2007′s heartbreaking “Bridge to Terabithia,” emerged victorious. The series will air on the CW, the network responsible for such successful young adult shows as “Gossip Girl” and “One Tree Hill,” but I have my reservations. I think AnnaSophia is adorable, and perfectly well-suited to the part, but the question stands — will Carrie Bradshaw, completely out of context, even hold a candle to the unapologetically fabulous thirty-something Carrie Bradshaw we all know and love?

Last night was the eve of the official New York Fashion Week kickoff, and the American Foundation for AIDS Research’s Annual New York Gala at Cipriani Wall Street was the place to see and be seen — that is, if you’re an A-list model, celebrity, entrepreneur, or fashionista. The yearly event, hosted by Sarah Jessica Parker, raises money for — you guessed it — AIDS research, prevention, and education. This year’s reception honored the work of Roberto Cavalli. With this many fashion heavy-hitters in one place, there’s bound to be some serious outfit trauma, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that the good far outweighed the bad. There were so many amazing looks last night, but there was also some bad, and then … the very, very meh. And yes, if you were wondering, Heidi Klum is still wearing her ring.
This week brought us whimsical hipster rickshaws, manly nail polish, a sales jump for a luxury fashion house, and the birthday of a very famous editor. Read on for the stats… Keep reading »
“I talk to myself. Constantly,” Sarah Jessica Parker admitted in a recent interview with People. She claims her audible self-convos are not a sign of insanity, but a coping mechanism for keeping her life together. Hallelujah! I am so glad she came clean about this because I also talk to myself. If my world is flowing, the mute button on my internal dialogue remains on. But when things don’t go exactly as planned (which, let’s face it, is a lot of the time) that’s when the conversation goes live “On Air.” It’s like a defense mechanism that keeps me from short-circuiting. Ironically, I think it keeps me from becoming one of those crazy ladies on the street muttering to herself. Well, at least I hope so.
After the jump, my favorite kinds of conversations to have with myself. Keep reading »
“I Don’t Know How She Does It” is the kind of movie I will mercilessly mock and deny ever wanting to see, but then watch all the way through every single time it pops up on HBO. Other movies that fall into this category: “He’s Just Not That Into You,” “The Devil Wears Prada,” and “How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days.” (But not “Sex and the City 2.” Never that.) While I’ll be waiting a bit for this flick to hit the small-screen so I can watch it in secret, one thing I can doright now is critique the clothing worn by the ladies who attended the movie’s premiere last night. Keep clicking to check out who made my good, bad, and meh lists!
What do Hurricane Irene and “I Don’t Know How She Does It” have in common? They both are going to take the box office by storm. Well maybe not. But together, they make a good joke. Our apologies to Sarah Jessica Parker’s face. Nothing personal. [Urlesque] Keep reading »
