I'm not sure which came first: actress Sarah Jessica Parker’s enviable personal and red carpet style or the quirky, but imitable, looks made famous by her "Sex And The City" character Carrie Bradshaw.
Whichever the case, the two wardrobes often cross-over -especially yesterday in NYC when SJP pulled a quick-change to go from a panel at the Soho Apple store to talk about her film "What About The Morgans" to the David Letterman show studios later that day.
And leave it to SJP to elevate even jeans (hers are Helmut Lang) with a sexy sheer Alexandre Herchcovitch top and one of the hottest bags of the season, a fuchsia design by Diane De Maria. Later, for the "Late Show," Sarah carried a second bag by Chanel and donned a bustier dress and fishnets similar to the "Carrie-inspired" outfit she wore here.
