SJP: 'I don't think about fashion all day long'

I'm mourning. It has only just dawned on me that Carrie Bradshaw is not real. After reading the Sarah Jessica Parker feature in Vogue USA it is evident that SJP is miles away from her alter ego we all know and love. She is on the cover of USA's 'Age Issue' and the whole thing takes the 'I don't know how she does it' angle - SJP's new film.

"Bradshaw’s life is nothing – nothing – like mine. I loved playing her, and it changed my life in lots of wonderful ways, but I’m not a crazy shoe lady, I don’t think about fashion all day long, although I have a great respect for the industry.”

That is the quote that did it. What..? Crazy shoe lady?! You DON'T think about fashion all day long?! Ouch. That hurts Parker. That being said, SJP revealed in the magazine that she would be leaving Halston, the fashion brand where she was creative director. She is blatantly just acting nonchalant so the acting world welcome her back. Deep down she is probably covered in I Love Fashion tattoos and keeps deeds under her pillow to change her name to Carrie.

Here are some images from the photoshoot, shot by Mario Testino:

Wearing Chanel Resort 2012.

Cover - wearing Burberry Prorsum AW11/12.

Please don't tell me I'm the only one who feels this way? Carrie was my career inspiration. I WILL have a column one day.

It is sad, but in a way, it's nice to know she is a bit more real about things!! x

No I totallyyy see where you are coming from - I would love to have a career like Carrie's one day but possibly with a less dramatic and flaky love life!

It's so hard to separate the actor from a character as iconic as Carrie. I do still love SJP though, I just have to try and keep her and Carrie separate in my head.

Oh god i know what you mean - i read that somewhere before about SJP and now whenever i see her i feel this anger towards her like she's some kind of phoney! I just still can't get my head round the fact that Carrie isn't a real person. It's heartbreaking!
