Get Carrie-d Away with Sarah Jessica Parker
A good actress becomes her character – something that Sarah Jessica Parker never had to worry about. After all, she didn't just 'become' Carrie Bradshaw. She really is Carrie Bradshaw.
Latest post about Carrie Sex and City clothes
Born in 1965 to half a Jewish household in Ohio, she started performing at a very young age. She trained in singing and ballet at Cincinnati's School for Creative Performing Arts, as well as the School of American Ballet and the Professional Children's School. She also appeared in several Broadway productions like The Innocents and Annie before moving on to television in 1982. Since her critically acclaimed performance on the short-lived sitcom Square Pegs, Sarah has appeared in over 25 films to date.
Even with a mildly impressive movie career under her belt, it seemed like all roads led to Manhattan for Sarah when she was offered the lead role as Carrie Bradshaw on HBO's Sex and the City. Although hesitant to take on a long-term role for a TV series, Sarah eventually agreed. After all, no one can resist fate when it's written in the stars – in this case, producer and director Darren Star, who had nobody else but Sarah in mind for the role.
Sex and the City eventually became one of the most successful television series of all time. It ran for 6 seasons, and won several Golden Globe, Emmy, and Screen Actors Guild awards, including several best lead actress awards for Sarah. In May 2008, the highly anticipated Sex and the City: The Movie premiered in London and became the highest grossing R-rated romantic comedy of all time.
Although Sex and the City was best known for its risqué topic, the high fashion aspect wasn't far behind. The girls loved shoes and labels almost as much as they loved men – so much so that critics labeled them shallow and pretentious. Its fans, however, loved the concept of independent and fashionable women and have taken to eagerly devouring the characters' styles almost as much as their exploits. Carrie, in particular, was celebrated for her fun, frivolous, and feisty outfits and penchant for high heels, all put together by Patricia Field, who also designed costumes for Ugly Betty and The Devil Wears Prada.
While Carrie Bradshaw ran around downtown Manhattan in 4-inch Manolos, Sarah Jessica Parker became a fashion icon almost overnight. In 2000, she hosted the MTV Movie Awards in no less than 15 different outfits. She also became one of the biggest fashion endorsers in the world. In 2005, her first fragrance, Lovely, was released. This was followed by Covet and Covet Full Bloom. Three new fragrances are slated for release in 2009.
'ol lady collection?' designer to designer that is..have a look to see if you get BITTEN?
In 2007, Sarah launched her first clothing line, BITTEN, to say this,everyone is intiteld their own opinion) but I wasn't really BITTEN looking at a 'quite du' middle age 'comfertable' clothing line, knowing how great Sarah looks herself it came as a bit of a surprise seeing this collection at Oprahs. Well to get back on the track, the line is a reflection of Sarah's personal taset(to beleive her own words?)featuring flirtatious, feminine clothing pieces and accessories. In keeping with her belief that “fashion isn't a luxury but a right”, all of BITTEN's items are priced at $20 or less. The line is exclusively distributed by the nationwide retail chain, Steve & Barry's. It is currently unavailable online (though pieces have turned up on eBay at ridiculously expensive prices).
Without a doubt, both Sarah Jessica Parker and Carrie Bradshaw embody the true spirit of today's modern woman. With a sequel to Sex and the City: The Movie starting production in 2009, both will continue to inspire us all for a long time.
You can't help simply love this woman/ a style icon of her time..our time!
