Sarah Jessica Parker Launches SJP Collection in Chicago
Broadway vet and fashion icon Sarah Jessica Parker debuted her new shoe line SJP on Saturday, March 8th at the Aventura Mall near Miami, Florida.
The 'Sex and the City' star told Vogue in June of her new line, "In a silly way, I think it's what people have expected of me most because of Carrie Bradshaw. It's sort of soup to nuts," Parker continues. "You put on a shoe and you put on a coat and you wear a bag and, on the outside, when you're walking down the street, they really can tell the same story about yourself."
Parker served as a producer and reprised her Emmy Award-winning role as Carrie Bradshaw in the screen adaptation of the hit HBO series "Sex and the City," followed by the theatrical release of "Sex and the City 2." She won over critics and audiences alike in the series for which she was awarded a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2004, as well as a Screen Actors Guild Award in 2001. Parker was also an executive producer on the series, which received the Golden Globe for Outstanding Comedy Series three years in a row in 2000, 2001 and 2002, and was honored with an Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series in 2001. Her Broadway stage include: Annie, Sylvia, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, and Once Upon a Mattress.
The actress recently completed production on "Lovelace," in which she stars as Gloria Steinem alongside Amanda Seyfried as Linda Lovelace, James Franco as Hugh Hefner and Peter Sarsgaard as Chuck Traynor. This summer, she starts filming the comedy, "Married and Cheating," starring opposite Brendan Fraser. Next year, Parker will lend her voice to family-friendly animated feature "Escape from Planet Earth" with Jessica Alba, Brendan Fraser and James Gandolfini.
Her Broadway credits include Once Upon a Mattress, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and the original production of Annie.
