Sarah Jessica Parker discusses her shoe line...which includes 'The Carrie'

Sarah Jessica Parker may just go to a shoe store today and wistfully exclaim, “Hello, Loverrrrr!” at a pair of strappy stilettos. Only this time, they’ll be her own creation.

The once and future Carrie Bradshaw’s inevitable shoe line, SJP, hits Nordstrom this week. The shoes are designed with George Malkemus, CEO of Manolo Blahnik, and run in the $300 range.

The actress spoke with the Associated Press about the project and explained why now — 10 years after the show ended its original HBO run — was the right time to get into the shoe business. “I was very kindly being offered a lot of opportunities in the shoe category and I kept rejecting them,” Parker explained. “And I couldn’t figure out why. … And I was sitting with some women friends of mine and they said to me, ‘What is it?’ And I said, ‘Well, I know it’s not going to be the shoe that I want it to be.’ And I said that really my dream partner is George Malkemus. And they said, ‘Have you asked him?'” READ FULL STORY

Sarah Jessica Parker is launching her own fashion label (and there's a Manolo Blahnik connection)

Talk about perfect timing. Yesterday, on what was the 15th anniversary of the premiere of Sex and the City, Sarah Jessica Parker announced that she’s got a fashion line in the works.

“I really hope people like it. We’ll see,” Parker told Footwear News of her SJP label, which will hit the shelves at Nordstrom early next year.

For her inaugural collection, Parker focused on footwear, no surprise considering that as the well-heeled Carrie Bradshaw she helped turn Manolo Blahnik, Jimmy Choo and Christian Louboutin into household names. “Because I got to play that role, I wore a lot of shoes, and by default I learned an enormous amount,” the actress told Vogue. “It’s hard to – no pun intended – walk away from that.” Parker’s business partner is George Malkemus, who is the CEO of Manolo Blahnik.

The Spring 2014 line will include 35 to 40 styles of flats and high heels priced between $200 and $300. “I have to know that we’re producing shoes I’m going to wear,” Parker told FN. “I’m not going to try and sell someone shoes that aren’t going to be good enough for me to wear myself.” But wait, didn’t Parker say she’d sworn off heels?


Met Gala: A dude has some questions

I know what the Met is. I know what a Gala is. I understand, in broad strokes, the basic concepts of high fashion. I know how to spell couture, I think. [Googles.] Yes, I definitely know how to spell couture. But I know almost nothing about the Met Gala. Twitter told me that, this year, there was some kind of “Punk” theme, and apparently said “Punk” theme produced hilarious fashion disasters. The bigwigs here at EW.com asked me to provide an outsider perspective on the evening’s dress wear. Forthwith, certain questions from the male demographic while perusing our fashion gallery.

1. Jennifer Lawrence is wearing a veil. When I went to high school, veils were more “goth.” How old is Jennifer Lawrence, and does she even know the difference between “goth” and “punk”? READ FULL STORY

Met Gala: Which star did punk best? -- POLL

In keeping with this year’s Met Costume Institute exhibit theme — Punk: Chaos to Couture — guests at the annual Met Gala called on their designer pals and stylists edge up their looks for the red carpet, and the results were a mixed bag.

While some attendees punked out of the challenge, the ones who went there, went there.   From Sarah Jessica Parker’s mohawk topper to Miley Cyrus’ mesh dress, see the stars who stayed on theme and vote for your favorite.  READ FULL STORY

Met Gala: Best moments of Vogue's red carpet live stream

The theme of this year’s Met Gala, celebrating the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s latest exhibit Punk: Chaos to Couture, was, fittingly, punk rock. But sadly, not even Madonna dared to just wear a Clash t-shirt and jeans to what’s become the “Oscars of the East Coast.” From watching Vogue.com’s live stream of the Met Ball’s red carpet, we learned the celebs and their designer dates had a wide range of punk knowledge — from barely any (Hailee Steinfeld: “Avril Lavigne’s not punk?!”) — to Gwyneth Paltrow claiming that Spence girls wore safety pins in their ears.

Below, some of our favorite moments from the red carpet, hosted by Hillary Rhoda and Vogue’s Billy Norwich:

Sarah Jessica Parker on 'The Carrie Diaries': 'It's odd'

Sarah Jessica Parker originated the role of Carrie Bradshaw on HBO’s Sex and the City, but she’s not exactly a fan of the CW’s Sex prequel, The Carrie Diaries.

In a new interview with luxury shopping site Net-A-Porter.com’s online magazine The Edit, Parker said that while Diaries star AnnaSophia Robb — who plays the young Carrie — is “lovely,” she’s “not sure” how she feels about the series.

“You know, I think it’s one of those tests of your generosity,” Parker said. “[AnnaSophia] is a lovely girl and I want her to feel good about, but it’s… odd.”

The 47-year-old actress, who wears pieces from designers like Victoria Beckham and Saint Laurent creative director Hedi Slimane in photos that accompany the interview, also noted that, while she believes the candid conversations between the original Carrie and company “encouraged women to share more candidly,” she’s paying a price for playing the well-heeled character.
