Sarah Jessica Parker: 'So You Choose a Dress People Think Is a Disaster. In the End, Who Cares?'

You might expect a fashion icon like Sarah Jessica Parker to be very serious about style, but her latest interview in the February issue of InStyle totally disproves that notion — and makes her seem like all the more a fashion genius for it.

Though she admits to ruling a few things out (tube tops, for instance) as she approaches 50, she has no real hard-and-fast guidelines for what she’ll wear. “I think pulling it off or not pulling it off, that almost doesn’t exist for me, because I’m looking for experiences, not some report card,” Parker says. “I do love fantasy, color and the idea of no rules … So you choose a dress people think is a disaster. In the end, who cares?”

Her lighthearted approach to fashion belies the seriousness with which she approached her upcoming shoe line, SJP, soon to be sold at Nordstrom. “If I’m going to ask people for their hard-earned dollars, I’d better be making shoes I want to wear,” she says. “My real dream was a smaller line, my name, built in Europe, at a reasonable price point.” And she got everything she wanted (you can check out photos in this magazine, or on this site later today!) in a line of classic, classy and wearable footwear and handbags.

We’re not sure if Sarah Jessica Parker is starting a new trend, if her tailor is on vacation or if she’s simply moonlighting as a New York City bike messenger. What we do know, though, is she’s really committed to her new way of wearing pants: pegged in interesting manners.

Lately, every time she’s stepped out in a pair of jeans, she’s cuffed ‘em creatively. Let’s examine the myriad ways one can peg…

For someone who’s not that into fashion, Sarah Jessica Parker certainly fakes it well. The actress sparkles and shines in couture for the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar, the magazine’s largest issue ever.

Posing in Chanel, Gucci and Marc Jacobs for the high-fashion spread, the star reveals that after several failed fashion collaborations (including one with Halston in which she confesses, “I really did work for free!”) she’s poised to launch a fabulous, feminine collection with Manolo Blahnik, to be sold at Nordstrom starting in February.

Sarah Jessica Parker: I'm Not As Into Fashion As You'd Expect

She may be a style icon, but former Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker swears she’s not as fashionable as she used to be now that she’s spending more time at home with her kids.

“I never dress up that much,” she tells UK newspaper the Daily Express. “These days, I’m lucky if I go out to a friend’s house. Most of my day is spent as a mother, which requires an entirely different wardrobe.”

“Although I appreciate beautiful clothes,” the star says, “I’m not into fashion as people expect me to be.”

In our weekly search of what we’re seeing sizzle (and fizzle) on the red carpet, we saw a whole lotta spots, a wide range of fashion-forward clutches and denim cutoffs that were a bit too tattered for a formal affair.

Up: Spots: If Sarah Jessica Parker and Duchess Catherine are wearing spotted prints, it’s only a matter of time until the rest of Hollywood catches on. SJP stepped out in N.Y.C. wearing a black-and-white polka dot number, and Kate chose a spotted Hobbs coat dress for an event in London. Rashida Jones also had a spot-on moment in this black-and-white printed Proenza Schouler mini.

Sarah Jessica Parker Shares Plans For New Fashion Line

Your wish has just been granted, StyleWatchers! Sarah Jessica Parker is about to step into some new – and very fashionable – shoes as she is now the designer of her own label (pause for tears of joy).

Alas, we have to wait until 2014 for the collection, which will include footwear, handbags and trench coats, to become available exclusively at Nordstrom. Luckily, SJP dished on her design plans.

In a nod to her trend-obsessed Sex in the City alter ego, Carrie Bradshaw, Parker plans to create some innovative styles for her brand. For the shoes (rumored to range from $200s to the mid-$300s), Parker wants to experiment with interesting color combinations like mocha and navy.

“This idea that black and brown are the only neutrals is done,” Parker told Footwear News, “that’s so liberating for the shoe business.”

Parker, who’s launching the label with Manolo Blahnik president George Malkemus, explained why she chose to put on her design hat again, after her Bitten line for Steve & Barry’s folded in 2009 and she left her position at Halston Heritage in 2011.
