The gorgeous Sarah Jessica Parker is the cover star for American Vogue’s August 2011 issue, which sees her wearing a winter white Burberry Prorsum Fall 2011 coat.
Mario Testino shot the family spread which includes husband Matthew Broderick, James Wilkie, Marion and Tabitha.
Chanel Resort, Proenza Schouler, Marc Jacobs and Oscar de la Renta also feature in this playful editorial.
In the article she also talks about balancing family and a busy work life, raising toddlers while in her 40s, her love of acting, as well as how she’s very different from Carrie Bradshaw.
You can read the whole interview over at Vogue.com. Here are some extracts from her interview:
On her beloved “Sex and the City” character of Carrie Bradshaw: “Bradshaw’s life is nothing – nothing – like mine. I loved playing her, and it changed my life in lots of wonderful ways, but I’m not a crazy shoe lady, I don’t think about fashion all day long, although I have a great respect for the industry.”
On being a fashionista to the fullest: “I love the opportunity to wear something really special and go to a wonderful event at some great cultural institution. Not to sound too Pollyanna about it, but I really didn’t imagine when I was a little girl that I would be there to see it all myself.”
On her hard-working nature: “It’s kind of all I’ve known. I’m a bitter-ender. It’s potentially my fatal flaw that I do not give up on something. I will not rest. I work and work and work until I can no longer and someone has to remove me from the premises.”
On being a parent to twins in her 40s: “I guess I think there are things about it that I hope have made me a better mother. I’ve had a lot of opportunities to do the things that I wanted to do, like sleep. I have slept till 11:00 for a lot of years. Honestly, the only thing that I’m concerned about is the energy: I hope I can maintain the energy. I think about all the years I’ve spent parenting James Wilkie and everything I put into it, and there are two of them.”
On her commitment to acting: “It’s kind of all I’ve known. I’m a bitter-ender. It’s potentially my fatal flaw that I do not give up on something. I will not rest. I work and work and work until I can no longer and someone has to remove me from the premises.”
