We all make mistakes. Even Sarah Jessica Parker, our one and only Carrie Bradshaw. We may have known as the most fashionable character on TV, but even Sarah started from the bottom. I vividly remember the moment on Sex and the City where she made fun of scrunchies, yet, she was quite a fan of the hair accessory in the ’90s. Oh, did I mention crystallised shades? Those too. But, with all due respect, Sarah Jessica Parker has come a long way and settled on her throne as a fashion icon. The famous actress is now always on the best-dressed lists and admit it, we all envy her closet.
From the quirky teen who flees to enter a dance competition in Girls Just Wanna Have Fun to her most iconic role of Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City, SJP guided us on how to hit the bulls eye in the art of dressing. In her latest TV series, Divorce, SJP still manages to awe us with her style. I’m not sure whether I’m watching the show for entertainment purposes or just drooling over her outfits. With her shoe brand, SJP Collection, Sarah Jessica Parker is not just a style icon but also a trendsetter in the fashion field. Despite her age and how many years have passed since the finale of Sex and the City, Carrie still remains our best friend with the best wardrobe, and so does SJP…
We had to start from the bottom to show how far she has come. Looking back at the start of her career as a ‘Girl’ who ‘Just Wanted to Have Fun,’ I can still say she is rocking this oversized blazer with the rolled up jeans. This style is right back on the runways, see, SJP was a pioneer long before she became Carrie Bradshaw.
Seen at the premiere of For the Boys, SJP opts for an oriental look with harem-style pants and embroidered bomber. The big curls and the gold flashy bra makes her unavoidable in the crowd.
This is what I call a Cinderella moment. Seen in a cream Richard Tyler gown in the Golden Globe Awards, SJP reveals her inner fashion icon. With the addition of only an earring, the glamorous dress is let to shine on its own creating an effortless elegance.
In the UK premiere of the movie Sex and the City, SJP is seen wearing a flashy green strapless dress by Alexander McQueen and an outrageous headpiece by the famous milliner Philip Treacy. Her evolution as a style icon is unquestionable with her brave choices after Sex and the City.
Here, she is wearing an Oscar de La Renta coat and dress with a Fendi bag at the 2014 CLIO Image Awards. I don’t know about you but I haven’t seen anyone mix patterns this well and still remaining sophisticated.
At the opening of Whitney Museum in New York, SJP wore a grey ombre dress with snake print heels. The large beaded statement necklace completed the sparkly bodycon dress.
At the 2016 Met Gala, SJP took an alternative approach and wore this Monse ensemble. Pairing it with heels from her own line, she looked like she’d stepped out of another Sex and the City episode. It is clear that SJP loves details as each piece was a statement on its own.
Who could have done a Heidi moment better than SJP? At the 2017 Golden Globe Awards the style icon opted for an off-the-shoulder Vera Wang gown maintaining her spot on the best dressed lists.
