Red Carpet Style:
Although its hard to tell where Carrie Bradshaws style stops and Sarah Jessicas starts, the element of surprise is constant. Whether by adding rainbow-bright stilettos to a LBD, replacing the typical red carpet ball gown with shorts, or accessorizing a vintage gown with retro beads, SJP proves the rules are indeed meant to be broken.
On her down time, Sarah Jessica keeps things simple with an easygoing mix of separates. She favors the standard suburban mom fare like Juicy hoodies and bootleg jeans, but maintains an edge with offbeat accessories (bright scarves, IT bags, funky flats).

Sarah Jessicas hair, much like her style, is, always changing. Her long strands look gorgeous stick straight, naturally curly, in a sleek chignon, or in a funky updo. Although her hair color has gone from blonde to brown and every shade in between, its typically a pretty honey tint.
SJP likes her makeup natural and bare, allowing her fabulous style to take the spotlight. When she does put in extra effort, smoky eyes (smudged liner and breezy dark eye shadow) are her weapon of choice.
Notable Quote About Fashion:
I like my money right where I can see it... hanging in my closet. -- SJP as Carrie Bradshaw, "Sex and the City."
Get the Look for Yourself:
Start with a base of classic basics (neutral tops, skinny jeans, blazers) and add pizzaz with layers. Tunics, dresses, and pretty camisoles are all fair game when youre sticking with an otherwise simple outfit. Finally, mix in accessories and shoes the more vibrant, the better.
