In honor of Sarah Jessica Parker I decided to put together a bunch of her fabulous outfits from Sex and the City. Happy Birthday SJP!
Jasmine’s fashion mantra is “when in doubt, wear all black.” Although agreeable, what about the day when you will be wearing all white? Celebrities have shown us the right and wrong ways to sport a wedding dress – they face the scrutiny of the public and potentially the harsh words of Joan Rivers on Fashion Police. Below are some of the fashionistas that have received positive remarks and made their own wedding dress iconic.
Kate Middleton looked absolutely breathtaking in this one-of-a-kind Alexander McQueen wedding gown designed just for her. Although there have been rumors floating around about the cost, no reliable details have surfaced. We do know, of course, that the price tag is pretty heft. With the dress on the right, you get an identical silhouette and neckline to Kate’s dress but at just a fraction of the price on
If you’ve seen the Sex and the City movie, there is no way you could forget this stunning dress Carrie Bradshaw wore on her wedding day. We all gasped in delight when the gown was sent to her front door from the designer herself, Vivienne Westwood. The dramatic neckline and full skirt make this unique piece a must-have for any daring bride. If you don’t have the budget to afford the $17,000+ Westwood original, opt for the dress on the right by
Although Kim Kardashian’s marriage to Kris Humphries was short-lived, her wedding day was nothing short of elegance and beauty. Her gown, created by bridal fashion designer Vera Wang, had a mermaid silhouette that hugged Kim’s curves and gave the right amount of drama with a dramatic layered skirt. Similarly on the right for $999.99, Vera Wang recreated the Kardashian dress for her affordable White by Vera Wang collection at
Styling yourself on your wedding day can be overwhelming and a little bit of a hassle. Taking some fashion pointers from celebrities that have done it right when exchanging their nuptials can lessen the amount of worry and time spent planning. Do a little bit of searching for the perfect celebrity-inspired look that really speaks to you and go from there!
Monica Nolan has been a bridal fashion guru for many years and she prides herself on helping women find their dream wedding dress for less.
Now this is my kind of outfit! It’s casual and comfy but Sarah Jessica Parker makes it chic and sleek with black booties and a fancy necklace. SJP’s always manages to make anything look glamorous without a hint of effort. I swear it looks like she rolled out of bed and threw on the first thing she found…love it! Easy outfit to wear from day to night by swapping out the shoes.
Movies that combine RomCom and fashion speak to the modern woman. Sex and the City remains a style guide for women who insist on a unique, polished look.
Carrie, Miranda, Samantha, and Charlotte. How does their fashion influence us? It may have been years since we obsessively recorded every episode. However, their unique style continues to motivate our fashion choices today.
By investing in a few key pieces each season you can attain the flawless look they created. No matter what your personal taste, take cues from these iconic career women.
To replicate the look of Hollywood’s most recent leading ladies, check out the fashion archives of Celebrity Copycat styles.
If you are like us though, and still longing for an evening with Carrie and the girls, check out the imprint their styles still have on fashion today.
Carrie: The Trendy Writer
If Carrie is your ideal style maven then over-the-top accessories are for you. Carrie’s clever style, like many modern women, changes over time depending on where her career takes her.
She often epitomized the peak of runway fashion. However, she was also equally suited in a classic pencil skirt as her career took her from coffee shop column-writing to fashion contributor for Vogue.
Punch up a perfect pencil skirt like this one with a brightly colored blouse, stylish statement necklace and patterned pumps.
Adding a motorcycle jacket adds the edge factor and takes the look from day to evening.
Charlotte: The Polished Art Curator
Charlotte’s classic style was the perfect picture of the modern woman, demure and sleek. Fall 2012 is all about pops of color and mixing textures. But make no mistake, a trusted little black dress is always a key fashion asset.
Look for one with interesting details to put a modern spin on a classic style. This little number from
Pair with a bright belt and matching cardigan for a seamless look that can transition from day to evening.
Miranda showed us how to make the most of a clean, professional approach with her timeless take on the modern woman’s suit. Try balancing out perfectly cut, wide leg pants with a bright, jewel-toned blazer such as the green one seen here.
Add a coordinating scarf and forgo the briefcase for a textured bag like this houndstooth laptop bag to magnify your style.
Samantha: The Stunning Publicist
Samantha turned heads wherever she went, all while managing to keep her scorching style.
Take a fashion lesson from this Sex & the City siren and pair fall’s must-have modern faux leather pants with a functional blazer, bold statement necklace and heels with attitude – we love the snakeskin print accent on these pumps!
Lose the blazer after work and go effortlessly from the office to drinks with the girls.
Whether you are off to the coffee shop or the art gallery, the courthouse or the board room, the modern woman needs an individual style that can go all day (and night).
Add your own clever spin on these modern, quality pieces. By doing so, you can create a fall wardrobe worthy of the big screen.
Sarah Jessica Parker’s outfit has all of the fall elements that I love: a cozy fair isle sweater, blazer, colored skinnies and booties (I can do without the sunglasses though, it totally contradicts the outfit!). It’s a stylish, laid back look that is perfectly effortless! BTW how fabulous are the studded boots I found at JCPenney?!
