Carrie Bradshaw is a complete style icon, whether you love or loath her daring looks.

Sarah Jessica Parker rocked Carrie's wardrobe for the best part of a decade, and in hour of the esteemed actresses 52nd birthday, we want to pay homage to some of her sassiest Sex And The City looks to date.

Oh, and while we have you; don't forget to have your say in the inaugural SHEmazing Awards this May! It's time to vote for YOUR favourite style icon, and you can do it right here!


It's been almost twenty years since Sex and the City burst onto our screens back in 1998, and while the show has been lauded for depicting women, sex and relationships in their most authentic form, a shadow has hung over the smash-hit HBO show for the best part of two decades.

And it sounds like Sarah Jessica Parker is officially done with it.

Addressing long-running reports that she and Kim Cattrall endured an incredibly strained relationship during their six years on set together, SJP is determined to put the rumours to bed.

While appearing on the Howard Stern Show earlier this week, the 51-year-old actress let rip at the blatant gender stereotyping which fuelled the rumours.

"It used to really confound me and really upset me," she said. "We were part of a family of sopranos and no-one was questioning the relationships of the men on the show [or asking], did you hang out with each other at the weekend? Did you give each other Christmas presents?"

Refusing to sugarcoat the dynamic which existed between the cast and crew, Sarah offered a genuine insight into what went on behind the scenes, saying: "These were my sisters. These were people that I grew to love and admire."
"And was every day perfect? Were people always desperately, hopelessly in love with each other? No, but this is a family of people who needed each other, relied on each other, and loved each other."

"And this sort of narrative, this ongoing cat fight, it really used to upset me for a very long time," she admitted.

Reflecting on the impact the rumours had on her professionally, Sarah said: "I take very seriously my reputation."

"I work very hard and I treat people well and I have a work ethic that is very meaningful to me and it’s based on the affection I feel for the people I get to work with."

"To suggest that I’m behaving poorly or not treating someone well? It’s not even like it’s not me," she insisted. "It’s so anathema that it would drive me bananas."

OK Sarah, we've got it now.


There's no denying that the pilot episode of Sex and the City way back when (1998, fact fans) signalled a major change to the way in which TV execs approached women's treatment of sex and relationships.

And while the viewer knew they were witnessing something pretty epic, it seems the show's leading actress wasn't as quite as quick off the mark when it came to recognising the show's potential.

Recalling the role which made her a household name, Sarah Jessica Parker admitted that she hadn't anticipated the impact the show would have, and initially decided it wasn't something she'd be comfortable with.

"When I did the pilot, I didn’t think it was going to change my life at all except that when they picked it up — or when I was reminded I did it, frankly," she said in The Jess Cagle Interview.

Explaining that after being approached on the street and congratulated on her involvement in the show, Sarah suddenly decided that the role would infringe on other pursuits.

"I was like, 'I don't know if I think I want to do that. Is there a way to not do that?' I met my agents in L.A.—Kevin Huvane—and I was like, 'Do you think maybe I could not do this now?'"

Sarah feared that she would be forever tied to the role of Carrie, adding: "Because I wanted to keep doing a play and doing a movie and doing a play."

"So, the way I thought it was going to change my life was that it was going to like hold me hostage to a commitment."

Thankfully for die-hard SATC fans, Sarah was convinced to give it a shot, and admits that she's so grateful she did.

"It was the happiest, it was the most productive, fulfilling professional experience I could have imagined," she gushed.


If you – like us – were a die-hard Sex and the City fan back in the day, you'll be all too familiar with Carrie's notion that the world revolved around her.

While she may have claimed her friends were her life – or 'her insides' as she once told Aleksandr Petrovsky – it was pretty clear who the New York Star writer put first.

And now it looks like Sarah Jessica Parker has offered an explanation for her character's fairly healthy sense of self.

During an interview on Nerdist podcast, the actress suggested that the three main gals in Carrie's life were nothing more than a figment of her imagination.

"I used to wonder if Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda were real. That it’s all for the column."

"They’re such perfectly archetypal characters,” she continued.

“So you’re writing a column about sexual politics and observations of female/male primarily, heterosexual relationships, so you’re picking one type."

Suggesting that Carrie used these imaginary ladies to give her column added authenticity, SJP added: "She is among them because that’s her way of infiltrating story and affecting story too, to have her own actions affect those friendships and document their response."

We've never so much rubbish in all our…oh my God, wait…'her insides'.

Well, that's that then.




When we picture Sarah Jessica Parker, it's hard not to picture her as Carrie Bradshaw dominating New York streets in her highest heels but it seems SJP loves spending her down time in Donegal.


The 51-year-old actress owns a holiday home with her husband Matthew Broderick in Kilcar Co Donegal and it looks like their son James loves it as much as they do.

The 13-year-old has apparently grown to love the area as well as one other Irish tradition.


"My son is 13 and has a certain vanity about his appearance that seems age appropriate. He's interested in soccer and GAA," Sarah told the Irish Sun on Sunday.



I might do this all day long. Cause I love himsez so. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JW! XXX, Mama

Sarah says that the family, including her son James and her seven-year-old twins Marion and Tabitha all try and get to Ireland as much as possible but unfortunately this year it seems the Donegal town won't see a visit from the A-list family.


"We always have a fabulous time in Donegal and I’m sorry we’re not going to be able to make it this year.


“It’s one of our happiest places ever, but sadly we have to skip this summer. My in-laws will be visiting instead.”



SHARE if you'd have any tourist tips for SJP.



Maire O’Flynn, is the envy of all Sex and the City fans right now (us included) – as she managed to meet her hero and style icon, Sarah Jessica Parker on her wedding day.

Marie and her new husband, Peter were enjoying their big day in Donegal, when the actress happened to arrive at the same hotel with her husband, Matthew Broderick

The bride said that even though she was hesitant at first to speak to the actress, guests insisted it was too big of an opportunity to ignore.

“I was very hesitant to approach her because I didn’t want to disturb her on her holiday and at a private dinner. But a few of the other guests thought it would be a missed opportunity if I didn’t get a photo on my big day with such an iconic celebrity.”

Marie’s brother then went over to the SATC star who said she would love to meet the bride after she had finished her meal. Sarah then posed with Marie before she left the hotel, and even complimented Marie on her wedding dress.

“She said that I looked beautiful and hoped that I was having a great day… It added a bit of celebrity status to the occasion.”

Well Marie got the SJP approval, what more can you ask for?




We always knew Sarah Jessica Parker was a big deal in the fashion world and not just for her brilliant portrayal of Sex and the City‘s, Carrie Bradshaw.

Now it seems that Sarah is now finally getting awarded for her own amazing sense of style.

It was announced yesterday that the iconic SATC star will be honoured at New York’s CLIO awards next month.

Parker is the first person to be ever awarded the new Honorary Image Award, which is mainly due to her big contributions in both fashion and beauty industries.



When it comes to her kids, it seems Sarah Jessica Parker is like any mum – don’t dare mess with her!

The Sex and the City star hit back at a Twitter user for making “vulgar” remarks about her children.

The 49-year-old actress is mum to 11-year-old James and four-year-old twins Marion and Tabitha with actor Matthew Broderick.

The star fired off a flurry of replies to self-described “relationship expert” Sarah J. Symonds who identifies herself as an “infidelity analyst” and “founder of Mistresses Anonymous and Wife School”.

Unfortunately, no one seems to have record of what rubbed the actress up the wrong way since Symonds deleted the post instantly.

But we know that SJP tweeted, “Your anonymity doesn’t diminish your outrageous and vulgar tweet. And your deletion only reveals your cowardice.”

The actress then added, “I’m certain there isn’t a woman on this planet who would support your specific kind of cruelty.”

When pressed on the incident later, the celebrity declined to repeat what Symonds said, but wrote, “Suffice to say, it was disgusting.”
