Carrie Bradshaw has played a major role in fashion ever since she donned that adorable pink tutu dress on Sex and the City in the very first episode. From her over-sized flower dresses to her sophisticated Manolo Blahniks, this girl knew how to shake up New York City with her undeniably exquisite fashion sense. Take a look at these 5 memorable outfits that inspire the "Carrie" in all of us!
Blessed with a whirlwind movie career, an unbelievable business swagger, and a sense of style so iconic she'll go down in fashion history among the likes of Coco Chanel and Jackie O, Sarah Jessica Parker can do it all. An accomplished actress from a young age, Parker is best known for her role as "Carrie Bradshaw" on Sex and the City, the hit TV series turned movie sequel, where she also served as executive producer.
Former president and chief creative officer for Halston Heritage (reports just surfaced that she will no longer be associated with the company), Golden Globe winner, Emmy winner, UNICEF representative, and former Gap spokeswoman make up a mere fraction of her credentials list. She also has a fragrance brand that grosses seven-figures a year as well as a clothing brand. If that weren't enough, Monolo Blahnik has named a shoe after her, the SJP.
The phenomenon of mixing insanely expensive designer pieces with label-less bargain duds began when Sharon Stone appeared on the red carpet of the 1996 Oscars wearing a Valentino skirt paired with a plain black t-shirt from the Gap. It's been fifteen years (105 in fashion years) since the birth of the High/Low craze, yet it is still going strong. Quickly evolving from a trend to a necessity, High/Low fashion has come to mean that mixing a $3 tank top with a $300 skirt is more than acceptable. In fact, it's highly encouraged. Celebs and commoners alike are balancing their wardrobes with high-end designer pieces and cheap-o trendy clothes and accessories.
