Everyone’s favourite native New Yorker, Sarah Jessica Parker, graces the March 2009 cover of Harper’s Bazaar US
. On the cover she is wearing a stunning white Versace
gown, which I really would have loved to have seen full-length in the editorial.
In the magazine SJP talks about the launch of her new fragrance, her public persona and of course, fashion.
On the acronym, SJP: “I just donâ€™t have any real sense of my public persona. I donâ€™t know what people think of me, if they think of me at all.”
On New Yorks Sex and the City bus tour: “Ah, yes, I run into it. There are times when itâ€™s totally terrific, and there are times when Iâ€™m like, Oh, God, Iâ€™d better run in the other direction. Especially when Iâ€™m with my son.”
On fashion: “I donâ€™t have the Carrie Bradshaw passion and devotion to it, but I would much prefer that life would allow for a beautiful shoe all day long. To stand in Mr. de la Rentaâ€™s atelier and have him build a dress on you, that is amazing.”
On her Balmain dress: “That dress was really good. I love what [designer Christophe Decarnin] is doing. Itâ€™s kind of â€™80s, but itâ€™s superfitted and tailored. I canâ€™t wear all that stuff, Iâ€™m too old, but with the jacket shoulder he did…heâ€™s kind of the male version of Lâ€™Wren Scott right now.â€
On her Alexander McQueen smoke print dress: “McQueen is incredible. I actually had to cut myself out of that dress that night. My husband was out of town, so I was alone when I got home, and I couldnâ€™t unzip it. So…[wincing]…I got out the scissors.”
Personally I would have slept in the dress until he came back home. I couldn’t take scissors to any garment like that. *shudders*
