While the days of Carrie Bradshaw may be in the past, but Sarah Jessica Parker is still turning heads with every red carpet appearance she makes.

The Sex and the City star may have outshone the A-listers at the premiere of Sam Mendes’ Charlie and the Chocolate Factory musical in London on Tuesday. Joined by a dapper husband Matthew Broderick and their ten-year-old son James, the stylish Parker-Broderick family was all smiles on the red carpet. Possibly inspired by the famous golden tickets, Parker was decked out in a glittery Marc Jacobs number from the designer’s Resort 2014 collection. The black and gold striped sequined dress showed off her famously petite frame, and was paired with a simple black and gold plated bracelet. SJP finished off her look with a pair of classic black heels by Manolo Blahnik and a colour-block Fendi Baguette bag.

Sarah Jessica Parker is designing a collection for Manolo Blahnik

Sarah Jessica Parker Manolo Blahnik Collection

Carrie Bradshaw’s ultimate dream may finally come true.

Fifteen years after she graced our television screens as the beloved sex columnist in Sex and the City, real life Bradshaw Sarah Jessica Parker is officially launching her first footwear collection for Manolo Blahnik.

It should come as no surprise, given Parker’s inextricable link to shoes. “In a silly way, I think it’s what people have expected of me most because of Carrie Bradshaw,” Parker once told Vogue. “Because I got to play that role, I wore a lot of shoes, and by default I learned an enormous amount.”

According to British Vogue, Parker looked to “great old-school labels like Charles Jourdan and Maud Frizon” as inspiration for her collection. Bringing her own flair to the design table, she will be offering “something different” that will reflect her personal taste. She expresses, “We’re putting new colours together that people don’t typically do, just beautiful combinations that you wish existed in your closet. And in terms of bags, thinking about that period of the Seventies into the Eighties, what those women were carrying, taking away the bells and the whistles and hardware and really making it about the bag.” And the best part? Her whole collection might not put a huge dent in your bank account. The SJP collection will feature elegant pumps and flats that will range from $200 to $300, with bags around $700.

Produced in Europe and New York City, the SJP collection will arrive in the U.S. early next year, exclusively sold through Nordstrom.

Met Gala 2013: The 25 best dressed on fashion’s most important red carpet


Met Gala 2013

The build up to this year’s Met Gala has been major. Designers, celebrities and the fashion elite have been scrambling to piece together a look that fits the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s theme, PUNK: Chaos to Couture and while admittedly, the punk-inspired looks were few and far between, we were certainly thrilled with a few.

Channeling her own recent V Magazine cover, Miley Cyrus went latter day Debbie Harry with platinum blonde spikes and a long fishnet Marc Jacobs dress. Anne Hathaway debuted a similarly bleached bob alongside her date and dresser for the night, Valentino Garavani, sending the twittersphere in a tizzy.

Co-chairs of the event Riccardo Tisci and Rooney Mara went punk-light with Mara in a beautifully detailed white lace Givenchy dress and a pop of crimson on the lips.

Also wearing Givenchy was none other than Beyoncé—the honourary chairperson for this year’s event. Pairing her custom-designed strapless black and gold printed gown with blinged out boots in the same shade, Queen Bey proved for her second year in a row that last on the red carpet is always best.

After finally receiving the Anna Wintour nod of approval, Kim Kardashian made an appearance at the Met Gala 2013 in a floral-print Givenchy dress with baby-daddy, Kanye West at her side.

Someone who is more known for consistently nailing red carpet looks than Kimye, is Emma Watson and she hit a high note yet again in a skin-bearing Prabal Gurung dress with a single silver drop earring hanging from her left ear.

And while Kristen Stewart has held fast to her role as the face of Balenciaga’s Florabotanica, she strayed from the house’s new wears, opting instead, for a crimson Stella McCartney pantsuit.

So who was the best dressed at the Met Gala 2013? Vote in our poll!

Inside Tiffany’s Blue Book gala in New York: Gwyneth Paltrow, Carey Mulligan, Sarah Jessica Parker and more


Tiffany Blue Book Gala

Gwyneth Paltrow, Carey Mulligan, Kate Hudson, Sarah Jessica Parker, Michelle Williams and Jessica Biel. The guest list for last night’s Tiffany Blue Book gala read like an Oscar red carpet.

But it was all about aqua, with New York’s Rockefeller Center bathed in pale blue light and a 4-storey high blue box erected over the ice rink. Inside was a ’20s-style supper club with mounds of lobster and beef tenderloin, free flowing champagne, plumed aerialists hovering like exotic birds and Smash’s Megan Hilty belting out show tunes. The elegant excess reflected Tiffany’s starring role in the soon-to-be released The Great Gatsby, with the $200,000 diamond headband worn by Mulligan in the film on display alongside pieces from Tiffany’s 2013 Blue Book collection which goes on sale today.

Sarah Jessica Parker vs. Blake Lively: Who wore florals best at Target’s Toronto opening?


Sarah Jessica Parker Blake Lively Target Toronto Opening

On Wednesday, Target rolled out the red carpet to celebrate its arrival into our home and native land. Walking on said carpet and heading towards the aisles and aisles of goods in the Danforth location in Toronto was none other than megawatt stars Sarah Jessica Parker and Blake Lively, looking positively springy with floral details.

Both dressed in light ensembles but we saw SJP in an age-appropriate outfit with white pants, a sheer polka dot button-up and safety pinned blazer over top. What really made the whole look stand out was the oversized flower boutineer on her shoulder, taking florals for spring to a very literal place.

As for Lively, the actress extended the hemline from what we’ve grown used to on Gossip Girl and opted for a pale watercolour floral dress from Roland Mouret’s Spring 2013 collection. Lively’s pale skin and pale hair and pale dress was all tied together with a bright pair of floral “Sissi” pumps by Christian Louboutin and the look didn’t even wash her out.

We have all heard of the Little Black Dress, the origins of which can be traced back to designs of Coco Chanel’s from the 1920s. But what do we know of the Little Black Jacket? Luckily for us, Chanel has a website devoted to this iconic piece of clothing.

Karl Lagerfeld has been celebrating this classic piece of fashion history in his new book, The Little Black Jacket: CHANEL’S classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld, and with a new exhibition on display in London a couple of weeks ago that will make its way to Tokyo, Paris and New York among other cities.

But if you don’t live in any of the cities that the exhibition is traveling to, don’t fret as Chanel’s website has it available to view online. The result is a who’s-who’s of the fashion and celebrity crowd showcased in over 100 photographs of them putting their own spin on the jacket. The innovative online exihibtion takes Alice Dellal to Vanessa Paradis among others on a unique animated spin across your computer screen.

Leave it to Maison Martin Margiela to choose a dilapidated 9-storey building hidden within New York’s financial district to house the launch event for its upcoming collaboration with H&M. To say “event” is to put it simply—performance art installation/dance party/pop-up shop would explain last night a little better. Each floor of 5 Beekman Street was reimagined as some sort of exhibit, with dancers choreographed by Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker making art pieces from the aftermath of dancing around on a floor covered in white sand. Elsewhere, installations by Daniel Arsham, Frederique Chauveaux and Noemie Goudal brought the Margiela collaboration pieces to life, by projecting tableaus and hand gestures right on the pieces themselves. Atop the building, a pop-up shop stocked with the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M collection was swarmed by the 1,500 guests trying to snag a purchase in advance of the re-edition collection launching in stores on November 15.
