At Paris Fashion Week, Sarah Jessica Parker showed the world once again that she is nothing short of a fashion phenom. Parker made an appearance at Louis Vuitton and chatted with Women's Wear Daily about another potential foray into the fashion biz.
Parker looked timelessly chic dressed in a white lace frock from the brand's Spring 2005 collection, a black bra peeking out from underneath, a soft bluish-gray cape, white gloves and a bouncy side-swept bouffant.
No one can pull off a see-through white dress with black bra quite like Sarah Jessica Parker. And it is surely no surprise. The actress has basked in fashion glory since Sex and the City premiered in 1998.
While sitting pretty in the front row, Sarah Jessica Parker dished to Women's Wear Daily about a potential move back into fashion. Parker was briefly president and chief creative officer of Halston Heritage in 2010.
I don't think my brief tenure would be called an exploration, Parker said before the Paris show. I learned an enormous amount, it was invaluable, and I'm definitely curious about pursuing it, and we'll see. I'm sort of figuring that out right now, actually, as we speak.
Halston benefited from Parker's tenure. She swooshed down red carpets in the designs and brought the fashion house to major prominence after wearing the clothing in the second Sex and the City movie.
At the time, Parker said her role consisted of everything that a president generally conventionally does in this particular industry, from talking about prints and sourcing and hiring and marketing to the direction for Spring/Summer 2011 for the Heritage collection to our licensing partnerships and how we want to pursue that.
Profit margins; sourcing; what factories work where in all sorts of parts of the world; how soon we can get tiny sequins - you know, sequins that are one-eighth versus one-sixteenth of an inch; can we get a swatch of fabric that ombrés? Can we get a real silk tulle versus a blend? This is what I've been learning about.
Then, in July 2011, she left amidst a whirlwind of speculation. According to Grazia, a source from the company said Parker had genuine passion for her work, but you can't do both things-be a president of a clothing company and be an actress.
With word of a potential clothing line in the future, Sarah Jessica Parker has got the fashion world buzzing (and swooning).
