Sarah Jessica Parker has designed a range of bridal shoes. The former “Sex and the City” star has expanded her SJP Collection to include a line of pretty heeled pumps so women can channel her flawless style on their big day. The brunette beauty unveiled the additions to her collection -- which already includes shoes, handbags and clothing -- in the new issue of Martha Stewart Weddings.
The line also features court designs with embellishments on the toe, including a royal blue pair reminiscent of the iconic Manolo Blahnik creation that her character Carrie Bradshaw dons to wed Mr. Big in the first film adaptation of the HBO series. The collection debuts new shades, like magenta and shimmering light pink, and each pair includes that “something blue” -- a grosgrain ribbon stripe on the back of the shoe, an SJP signature throughout her line. In the cover feature, Parker provides her best tips for creating the perfect bridal look, according to People.
“If I were getting married today, I’d likely wear cream, just to have that bridal experience. I would want my dress to have an Oscar de la Renta feel, pockets below the waist, a very fitted bodice, a huge skirt, in taffeta or duchesse satin,” she told the magazine. She added that silhouettes appeal to her because it’s old fashioned yet can look very modern. The style icon said that in weddings people strive for a more formal feeling, but a lot of the rules can be broken -- like a handful of carnations could be simple, yet beautiful.
In her own wedding to actor Matthew Broderick in 1997, she broke the bridal fashion tradition of wearing all-white and donned a black gown for her big day. Although she wore teal velvet Robert Clergerie shoes when she tied the knot, Parker found other ways to stick to the tradition of something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. The actress borrowed a handkerchief, someone gave her an old coin, and the dress was new. Sarah, 50, and Broderick have three children -- James, 12; and 5-year-old twins Marion and Tabitha.
