Sarah Jesscia Parker for Harper’s Bazaar US September 2013

Sarah Jesscia Parker for Harper's Bazaar US September 2013 (2)

Sarah Jessica Parker donned a gold Marc Jacobs sequin dress for the Terry-Richardson-shot cover for Harper’s Bazaar US’s September 2013 issue.

As you would expect, the editorial is jam-packed with high-fashion designs from Gucci (currently those feather-festooned Fall 2013 gowns have graced most of the September issue editorials), Oscar de la Renta and Chanel.

In her interview, SJP talks about her husband, Matthew Broderick, collaborating with Halston, and her new HBO show, ‘Into the Fire’.

On her husband, Matthew Broderick: “I love Matthew Broderick. Call me crazy, but I love him. We can only be in the marriage we are. We’re very devoted to our family and our lives. I love our life. I love that he’s the father of my children, and it’s because of him that there’s this whole other world that I love.”

On working With Halston: “We’ve all worked with complicated people, and I always think that I can disarm them. I love collaborating. I’m a great listener and learner, and I don’t think I know more than they do. I’m transparent.”

On her new HBO show, ‘Into the Fire’: “It’s about a woman, a beloved talk-show host out of Minneapolis, whose husband is a cook. He sort of put his career on hold while she had this big success, and ultimately they move to New York to give his career a chance. But they’re floundering. He’s a hothead and he can’t really keep a job. Deeply lovable.”

On her image: “I don’t think I’ve ever spent 10 minutes calculating my image. I can’t even recall a conversation.”

    The cover is quite glamorous and energetic but the line about her not thinking about her image sounds so disingenuous.

    I love a big and genuine smile on a cover.

    Love her! But is it just me, or did they photoshop her head from the great cover shot to the picture with the pink dress? Even the hair looks exactly the same!

      Verrry similar, but not exact.

    What’s up with every single editorial featuring one of this Gucci dresses? Is it mandatory or what?

    I am loving harpers right now. They actually shoot clothes in their editorials and covers unlike the up close portraits vogue likes to do. The cover dress is awesome and makes me want to buy the mag. Plus I love that they used an actress with a genuine passion for clothes unlike Vogue and their choice to put Jlaw on their sept cover.I do agree that the gucci dress is becoming overused. I would love to see more Stephane Rolland in mags.

      While I think it’s great that SJP loves fashion and probably really enjoys doing these magazine shoots as a result, I don’t think it’s fair to discount celebrities who aren’t particularly interested in clothes. It doesn’t make them less capable models. JLaw, for instance, has done some amazing editorials without even knowing the definition of “haute couture” (according to Andre Leon Talley). Her W and Vanity Fair spreads were great. I’m sure you would agree that a cover star’s love of fashion should just a bonus, not a prerequisite, to their landing a major magazine.

      I love Bazaar too. I have subscriptions to way too many fashion mags, I can’t even keep up, but it’s the one that I always make time for.

    That Gucci feathered dress is losing its appeal being seen in some many recent photoshoots.

    • H August 8, 2013 at 19:43 #

      Right? I have seen TONS of photoshoots with them!

        True. But I do like it on SJP the best.

    I don’t buy the cover nor the comment on her image, but I do love the dresses in gold and in blush pink. The birds and fishnet number isn’t quite my thing, but I do like the playfulness about it.
