Fugger: Sarah Jessica Parker

Well Played, Sarah Jessica Parker


It is true that this is not the sort of content we usually post, but the nice folks at Condé Nast sent it to us* and I could not resist sharing it, because it’s very charming and I think you will like it, and why not try something new every now and then, especially on an otherwise snoozy Wednesday morning? Vogue‘s YouTube Channel sent a dude over to Sarah Jessica Parker’s (amazing) house, and he asked her 76 questions in five minutes (in a single shot). It’s a clever reminder that, regardless of how crazily SJP sometimes dresses, she is really likeable — which, actually, has been born out in our own very limited interactions with her at Fashion Week, where she has never been anything but gracious as hell. Also: she really does have great hair:

Not for nothing, that’s a good reminder of (a) the power of a cute pair of jeans, (b) that globes are awesome, and (c) that you can and should put a ping pong table in your drawing room should the occasion arise. I have major, major house envy, you guys. The painted stairs? I know SJP has a shoe line now but I kind of wish that Domino still existed and that she was consulting for it. That’s what I want.

Fug the Personal Appearance: Sarah Jessica Parker at Nordstrom


In which our heroine sports an outfit that might have actually come out of the wardrobe of the character she played on Square Pegs:

Yes, those are stirrup tights. Yes, she is wearing an Oxford shirt under another dress. Do you really want to be the third that makes the trend when the first two are Julia Roberts and Whoopi Goldberg? That’s not bad company in which to find yourself if the category is, say, Awards Won or Ability to Get Meryl Streep On the Phone, or Sexual Proximity to Ted Danson Back In The Day If That’s Your Thing, but not when it comes to your wardrobe.

Fug or Fab: Sarah Jessica Parker (and her new line of shoes)


Sarah Jessica Parker has a shoe line at Nordstrom – that seems about right and also like something she should have jumped on before now — that she’s calling SJP (seems about right, also). Let’s look at them (from photos taken actually at the Nordstrom launch, which are always more telling than press photos, kind of like when you check out the photos on Trip Advisor that were uploaded by actual hotel guests and not the hotel), and at her.

Well Played, SJP


You know what? I’m going to give this to her:

It’s the opening of the New York City Ballet, and I feel like this is, if nothing else, rather balletic, both in color and in theme. I always approve of an adherence to theme, and it’s actually rather fetching on her. Carry on, Parker. Carry on.

Fugs and Fabs: Various Harper’s Bazaar Covers in September


I’m beginning with the U.S. Harper’s Bazaar subscriber cover, because it reminds me of what she wore to the Met Ball, looking like the sauciest ornamental footman in the world. Isn’t this arresting? I wish they had the guts to make this the newsstand version, to separate itself from every other tousled, tooth-whitened cover out there. Alas.

I was going to suggest that SJP often seems a lot less cheery when she’s making the rounds with The Brod. But she looks perfectly happy here. So much for my thoughtless rumor-mongering.

I ALSO rather like her outfit. It’s something not a lot of 48-year olds could pull off, but she does, and effortlessly. I much prefer fun, shiny, buoyant Sarah Jessica Parker to Twee SJP, dowdy SJP, or Pagan priestess SJP. It may not be as heartily amusing as Insane SJP, but what is? That bar is set so high not even a pole vaulter could clear it.
