Shoe Lust: Sarah Jessica Parker’s Footwear Line


There couldn’t be a more perfect tie-up for Sarah Jessica Parker than shoes, her alter ego Carrie Bradshaw from Sex & The City was renowned for her wardrobe being packed with Manolo Blahnik and Christian Louboutin beauties – well from February 28 shoe fans will be able to wear designs from her very own, SJP Collection.

Unlike Carrie’s collection, which cost a month’s rent, her line is much more affordable starting at $195 and ranging to $485 – that means you can get two pairs right??? The collection is exclusive to US department store Nordstrom and also includes bags, which are priced $375 and under.

So far, we have seen this gorgeous red number, the Mary-Jane strap ‘Diana’ heels and now The Coveteur has an exclusive video ‘If the Shoe Fits’ of Sarah talking O Magazine’s Gayle King through the collection – I am loving that she has a style called the Carrie and how lovely does Anna look in “asparagus”.

Shoe fanatics get ready, after seeing this adorable video I think there will be a long queue for SJP’s debut collection. UK fans don’t worry Nordstrom do deliver to the UK, here’s hoping that if it is a success, which I am sure it will be, they will tie-up with a UK name – I think the SJP Collection would look at home in Selfridges incredible shoe hall.

Are you excited about SJP’s debut shoe line?

Met Gala 2013: The Stars Who Embraced ‘Punk – Chaos To Couture’

Safe to say that a lot of celebrities and designers struggled with the punk fashion theme at this year’s Met Gala, some embraced the studs, fishnets, the safety pins, spikes and wrapped tape look, most went with heavier eye make-up than usual, some really took the theme to town, Madonna I am talking about you, while others just ignored it completely, Gwyneth I am pointing this in your direction, and some even made their hair the focus, oh hello Anne Hathaway’s bleached blonde hair-do!!!

Usually I do individual posts for the Met Gala much like my Oscar coverage, but this year I thought I would just do a round-up of my best dressed looks, and focus more on the stars that actually made punk high-fashion.


As you would expect with it being punk, there was a lot of black, not as much leather as I thought, but lots and lots of black. My favourite black look, and one of my favourites of the night, had to be Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev in Monique Lhuillier, a look featuring a leather and lace halter corseted bodice, black lace leggings and a tulle skirt, which was made perfectly punk with her incredible side-swept hair – seriously she so nailed it!!!

Coming in at a close second to Nina in the all-black category had to be Cara Delevingne in Burberry, as well as doing a great trench coat it seems that the British heritage brand also has a naughty side with this gorgeous and sexy spiked, plunging v-neck gown, which worked perfectly with her smokey dark eyes and sleek hair and her strong eye brows.


There were a lot of other black punk looks that caught my eye – Emma Watson in a revealing wrapped tape Prabal Gurung gown, Jennifer Lawrence in a polished Dior look, and Diane Kruger in Chanel, which was more grunge than punk but I did like the pink dip-dyed touch to her ponytail and spiked clutch. Then there were the blonde crop bombshells – Miley Cyrus and Anne Hathaway – who both looked incredible.

Sporting a slinky black mesh Marc Jacobs gown that Kate Moss has worn, I really liked Miley’s commitment to the theme and I think I am the only one who actually loved her OTT spiked hair. In contrast, Anne’s new blonde hair-do was more sleek and worked perfectly with her very revealing, gorgeously embellished vintage Valentino gown from 1992, which totally makes up for her Oscar look. I love that both totally went for it and I think it paid off.


But there was one look that completely blew me away and that had to be Sarah Jessica Parker wearing an incredible Philip Treacy mowhawk, a dark and moody paint-splatted printed Giles gown and incredible Christian Louboutin boots – now that is how you do punk fashion!!!

Do you have a best dressed from this year’s Met Gala?

BAFTA Awards: Sarah Jessica Parker In Elie Saab


Who: Sarah Jessica Parker

Where: At the 2013 EE British Academy Film Awards held at the Royal Opera House in London

Wearing: A black three-quarter sleeved Elie Saab jumpsuit, featuring a boat-neck, keyhole detailing, and structured panels to the bodice and waist from the pre-fall 2013 collection, teamed with black heels and Fred Leighton jewellery

Verdict: I do love a jumpsuit on the red carpet and it seems that Elie Saab leads the pack on the most glamorous styles. I loved this bold look from SJP, I know people on Twitter were saying that it wasn’t award ceremony worthy, granted but she wasn’t nominated, wasn’t promoting a film, and was just there to present and I think that allows for a little more creativity, plus I think the cold weather played a part.

As much as I love the look I wish the neckline wasn’t so high, was a little revealing to add a touch of sex appeal, plus maybe a little embellishment, but I can’t deny how cool this outfit looked on last night’s red carpet.

I am also loving her poker straight hair and heavy make-up to her eyes – I just can’t help but loving this look and wishing I could pull off a jumpsuit!!!!

Maison Martin Margiela For H&M Party: SJP, Mena Suvari and Selma Blair

Last night in New York, H&M celebrated its latest designer collaboration with avant garde label, Maison Martin Margiela, and they brought out some of the brand’s celebrity fans to model the collection on the red carpet.

This party looked incredible, not only was the guest list pretty special with everyone from Sarah Jessica Parker to Kanye West, Julianne Moore, and Gossip Girl’s Chace Crawford in attendance, but the venue, a nine-floor derelict, historical building in New York’s financial district looked to-die-for and the perfect setting for a very avant-garde party complete with art installations, dance performances and all housed around a glass-roofed atrium – oh how I wish I had been there!!!

As much as I loved Sarah Jessica Parker’s layered look, that oversized jacket is divine, my two best dressed of the night had to be Mena Suvari and Selma Blair. Both of course were wearing head-to-toe Maison Martin Margiela for H&M, and both looks came to under £300 – which for a red carpet event is amazing.

Probably the most controversial of looks was Mena Suvari, this body with an integrated bra is going to be a little like Marmite for some, you will either love it or hate it, and I absolutely love that Mena took it on last night. But what I love most about this look has to be that candy clutch – and at £34.99 this is so going to be mine!!!

Mena’s look comes to a grand total of £274.96 – don’t believe me? Well, here is a break down: body with integrated bra – £29.99; candy clutch, £34.99; invisible wedge pumps, £149.99; and hitched up skirt £59.99.

Wearing one of my favourite looks from the collection, Selma Blair looked incredible wearing the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M horizontally worn dress. I love her tea-pot pose in this dress – the perfectly way to show off the draping, and I adore her invisible wedge pumps – this is one seriously hot look which is finished off nicely with her intricate plaited up-do.

Gets Selma’s look on November 15, when the collection launches for just £249.98 – her horizontally worn dress is £99.99 and her black invisible wedge pumps are £149.99. Hot, Hot, Hot!!!
