Sarah Jessica Parker "Couldn't Say No" to Halston Offer, According to Article in May Issue of Vogue

Sarah Jessica Parker "Couldn't Say No" to Halston Offer, According to Article in May Issue of Vogue


The May issue of Vogue magazine features Sarah Jessica Paker on the cover and in an editorial as a 1940s screen siren photographed by Mario Testino. In the accompanying article, written by Vicki Woods, Parker discusses fashion, fragrance, family, her twin baby girls (Babe and Kitty born by surrogate), and the second film installment of Sex and the City, which will be released next month. On Patricia Field's costuming the four main SATC characters for scenes taking place in the Middle East, Parker says:

"[Fields] wanted all the characters to be interesting, sexy, all the stories that Pat likes to tell with clothing, but we had religious and environmental and cultural standards to respect. You have to look at clothing and women and women’s bodies completely differently. And you start to see how you can still see so much with someone covered. And how exciting that is and how beautiful it is and how draping can be incredibly sexy.”

Sometime between Woods' interview and the magazine hitting press, it was announced Sarah Jessica Parker would be the president and chief creative officer of Halston's Heritage collection. Woods quickly phoned Parker to fill in the blanks:  "What possessed her? Isn’t she busy enough? What was she thinking?" To which Parker explained she had fond memories of Halston from visiting Studio 54 when first living in New York as the child lead in Annie and that the company was very persuasive:

“There was every reason to say no, and there were very compelling reasons to say yes. . . It’s an exciting time at that company. It has had some false starts that are well documented and it is relaunching itself. It has a wonderful legacy, and I couldn’t say no, and I’m . . . uh, figuring it out. Does it scare me? Am I intimidated? Am I challenged? That’s kind of the way I’ve always made decisions. And luckily, the Halston offices are about a ten-minute walk from my house.”
