Today's fashion inspo post is all about the fashion queen herself, Sarah Jessica Parker!
You may have heard of her. She was just the lead role in the iconic 'Sex in the City!' A very fashion centered, and fashion forward show at the time! I can tell you that I coveted Carrie Bradshaw's closet! Every look was so fearless and embodied her personality so accurately! She was definitely a source of inspiration for me when it came to styling. Though it has taken me a while to take on some more bold looks than it did her! XD
She is also heavily involved in the fashion industry.
SJP has been the face of several brands through a variety of ad campaigns. In 2004, she signed a $38 million contract with GAP to appear in their ads in their fall ads and continue to appear in ads through Spring 2005. Apparently not only was it the first multi seasonal contract for GAP, but it also left some people a bit confused as this contract followed on the heels of the final season of Sex and City wrapping and her character was more high-end fashion and GAP is not as high-end fashion. Regardless though, the campaign was a success!
SJP moved on to create her own lines! Bitten was launched in 2007 which includes fashion and accessories, SJP Collection (her footwear line) hit Nordstroms in 2014, and in 2018 she partnered with Gilt to promote her ready-to-wear bridal collection.
It was described as being for "modern, non-traditional brides.' I looked it up and I was a fan! Essentially it is more simplistic styles. Not as much frill as traditional gowns can be.
SJP's off duty or street style is pretty low-key -as most of us are. I noticed though that she seems to have a soft spot for boyfriend fit jeans. And most of the pictures I saw as I was working on this post, she seems to love to cuff her pants. The middle picture is the most pronounced cuff I found. It is funny to think that there was such an issue with her being the face of GAP when all of these looks look like they came straight from a GAP ad!
I feel like this is where SJP really shines with fashion. This is where she takes most of her fashion risks! She definitely knows what she is doing! From vibrant colors to bold fabrics to eccentric head pieces, SJP really keeps people on their toes and guessing as to what she will wear next! I vividly remember when she showed up to the Sex and City movie premier in the green cocktail styled dress with the head piece. It was all over the fashion magazines and entertainment shows with people asking if they thought it was a 'hit or miss?'
I'll be honest, when I first saw it, I was not completely sure how to feel about it. But she wore it so confidently, that is what ultimately won me over! Now it is considered one of her most iconic looks!
Thank you so much for reading! I hope you enjoyed this! Have a great day and I will see you again on Friday! =)
