50 and Still Fabulous!

Sex and the City Carrie Bradshaw

There is no denying Sarah Jessica Parker looks phenomenal for her age. 50 and still looking fabulous, SJP has been crowned style guru many times over since she graced our screens with her adventurous and fanciful outfits for Sex and the City. Since then, she has an inspiring CV and leaves us fashionistas longing to be like her. Wherever she goes, the media follows, and wherever the media follow, her closet of success expands.

When I wrote for Redbrick newspaper at The University of Birmingham, I reviewed her newest collection ‘The Real Life Carrie Bradshaw for American retailer Nordstorm. After an overload of excitement and success, SJP was also commissioned by Fendi along with Rhianna, Jourdan Dunn and others to personally customise a 3Baguette in celebration of the New York flagship store on 598 Madison Avenue, with proceeds to benefit the charity of their choice.

There are many aspects to celebrate but if you are as much of a fan as I am for Sex and the City and love her sartorial and independent style, then look here to some of the best quotes from Carrie Bradshaw and some of her most celebrated red carpet moments as SJP.

When Carrie and Aidan split and she doesn’t have the money for a deposit for buy back her apartment “I’ve spent $40,000 on shoes and I have no place to live?! I will literally be the old woman who lived in her shoes.”

The four girls hit Atlantic City to celebrate Charlotte’s ‘thirty-faux’ birthday. Carrie “People go to casinos for the same reason they go on blind dates – hoping to hit the jackpot. But mostly, you just wind up broke or alone in a bar.”

The best quote of all on investing “I like my money right where I can see it… Hanging in my closet.”
