Sarah Jessica Parker For Harper’s Bazaar US March 2009

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 don’t have any real sense of my public persona. I don’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 it’s totally terrific, and there are times when I’m like, Oh, God, I’d better run in the other direction. Especially when I’m with my son.”

On fashion: “I don’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 Renta’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. It’s kind of ’80s, but it’s superfitted and tailored. I can’t wear all that stuff, I’m too old, but with the jacket shoulder he did…he’s kind of the male version of L’Wren Scott right now.”

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 couldn’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*

    I’m not positive, and it may be my computer, but both the links for the Alexander Mcqueen dress, and the Balmain, led to the first dress.

    There is something really wrong with the cover picture. Its not airbrushed, its totally distorted and modified to make it look like “un-Sarah”.

    Sarah Jessica Parker, en la edición de marzo es la portada de Harper’s Bazaar US. En ella lleva un impresionante vestido blanco de Versace. También posa para el interior de la editorial con un YSL,con un Salvatore Ferragamo, y con un Dolce & Gabbana. En la entrevista, habla entre algunas otras cosas sobre el lanzamiento de su nueva fragancia, de moda y de su personaje público.

    The Kors picture is particularly horrible. She looks like a 50-something divorcee on a skiing holiday in Yugoslavia in about 1983. And what the hell is that hair about? Was Harpers’ hairdresser off sick that week? Dreaadful all round.

    I guess this really is an homage to Anna Wintour’s predecessor, the divine Diana Vreeland:

    Wow, this is new. A celebrity actually wants to look older.

    Why do celebrity editorials in Harper’s Bazaar always look so awkward, and cheesy, and amateurish? I don’t get it

  9. Nik February 6, 2009 at 08:56 #

    Does anyone else think she looks matronly here?

    She reminds me of Daiana Vreeland in the Michael Kors pic.

    The hairdo in these pictures isn’t flattering at all…

  11. Fashion Critic February 6, 2009 at 01:32 #

    Oh without question.

    *gulp* she cuts the dress! i agree she should have slept in that dress, i think victoria beckham would have done so!

  13. Moi February 5, 2009 at 22:10 #

    Yeah I love the Versace dress too

  14. Anne February 5, 2009 at 21:48 #

    I agree with you Leo – I don’t get the connection and the overall idea between the shots..

    And I do not like the Michael Kors photo at all :/ Much prefer the Ferragamo then.

    I miss Carrie… I think I’ll start watching SATC again, for the 7th time. It will never grow old.
    Just fancy new series with new fabulous dresses from our times, from the latest Paris Fashion week for example.

  16. Sarah February 5, 2009 at 21:28 #

    Gorgeous shoot! I love how they combined the Michael Kors jumpsuit!

    This woman is not attractive. Plain as that. Something about her is very grating, I don’t know. I really cannot stand her. The cover is nothing special, and the second photo is ridiculous. I absolutely cannot stand when people are so praised for things that they do not have. She is overdone, completely.

    the versace dress is stunning love the details.


  19. A*mused February 5, 2009 at 19:33 #

    OMG those Versace hearts have a rapid effect on MY heart! I think i may have to indulge myself with a <3 post!

    I totally would have slept in the alexander mcQ too!! crazy crazy….

    also, she is practically unrecognisable on that cover, much too much unnecessary alterations happening there.

    This looks messy to me. The cover picture does not fit with the rest of the shoot, and also I don’t get what vibe they were going for with the pictures. Is it mexican style decadent society lady? Ugh!

  21. boogie February 5, 2009 at 19:07 #

    Too bad there is no full-length photo of the versace dress!!! I love those versace hearts!!! <3

  22. Moody Crab February 5, 2009 at 19:05 #

    The D&G, Ferragamo and Versace dresses are BEAUTIFUL!!!! Absolutely beautiful.

    I would gladly marry an old billionaire just to be able to dress like that everyday!!! Lord have mercy!

    Well, i bet McQueen won’t give her any of his creations so soon. She just don’t show enough respect for hiswork.
    She surely got this dress for free!

    Hey FC,

    Why was SJP asked abt the two dresses specifically. There were numerous other amazing dresses that she wore last Iw as wondering any special reason for these two?

    The cover picture is too airbrushed, i really hate what they’re doing with people’s faces, they look like robots, not humans. It’s getting too far.

    I like the editorial, but i agree, i would have loved a full shot of the Valentino dress too.
