Sarah Jessica Parker’s career has been on a steady incline since she won over the world in 1980’s favorites like Footloose, Girls Just Want to Have Fun and Flight of the Navigator, but her role as Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City turned her into a style icon overnight. Sassy and free spirited from the beginning, Sarah has taken us through each decade with a fun and clean approach to fashion, rocking the latest styles with her own, eccentric twist. From tube socks to couture, her RadarOnline.com Star Style Evolution is not one you want to miss!
In the 1980’s Sarah hung with the Brat Pack and even dated Robert Downey Jr., trolling around night clubs and movie premieres wearing brightly colored tube socks, wild and big hairdo’s and attention-grabbing jumpers. After a string of success with supporting roles, Sarah scored a part in Steve Martin’s L.A. Story, playing the eccentric shopgirl SanDeE (yes, it was spelled like that!) who only wore neon getup. As her career took off, so did her interest in fashion, and it wasn’t long before she was hopping on red carpets in covetable couture.
In the early 1990’s SJP showed off her petite figure in trendy slip dresses, and clearly attracted attention on and off the screen! In 1997 she married actor Matthew Broderick, and the next year Carrie Bradshaw was born.
Sarah transitioned into her Sex and the City role flawlessly, and the show was an immediate hit. With costume designer Patricia Field onboard, who Sarah met during the filming of her movie Miami Rhapsody and brought to the HBO show, Sarah turned into the ultimate fashionista, onscreen, and in real life!
One of Sarah’s favorite designers was the late Alexander McQueen, who passed earlier this year. The actress often sported his funky fashions on the red carpet, and just this week paid homage to her pal at the London premiere of SATC 2.
Sarah, now a mother of three, took her passion for fashion a step further in 2007, launching her own line “Bitten” and then earlier this year, signing a design deal with Halston Heritage.
