Since we started putting together our The Many Bags of… series, we’ve had a few stars with stunning handbag collections and incredible fashion pedigrees on our list that we’ve been waiting for just the right time to profile. Well, today seemed as good a time as any to get that started, and who in Hollywood (or New York, where she lives) is more of an accessories icon than Sarah Jessica Parker?
To many people, she’ll always be Carrie from Sex in the City, but SJP has some fashion chops of her own, as we all know. What I admire about her the most is her obvious willingness to dress for herself and for whatever she’s doing on any given day instead of dressing up for photographers just because she knows she’s going to be seen. In fact, paparazzi speculate that her dressed-down weekday outfits are in an effort to discourage photogs from stalking her; if she looks bland every day, it makes it harder for them to sell the photos. Even on her morning walks to school with her kids, though, Sarah Jessica’s usually carrying a fabulous bag, even if it is with jeans and UGGs. Without further delay, let’s see exactly what’s in SJP’s handbag closet. (She must have an entire closet for bags, right?)
When speaking of SJP, it seems to me that the only truly fair place to start is Fendi; after all, Sex and the City did help turn the Fendi Baguette into the world’s first true It Bag. In this photo, Parker carries a metallic silver Fendi Peekaboo Bag. Pick up your own Peekaboo via Neiman Marcus for $3720.
