We honestly thought SJP meant what she's been saying about leaving the Carrie character behind after SATC: The Movie, but it looks like the gig just pays too well. She recently shot a tourism ad for S√£o Paulo, Brazil, in which she skips around, tosses her hair and types away on her Carrie-like laptop, all while talking about the best shopping in the city's largest department store. The best line? "Thank God there's a gym, so you can fit into all those clothes." She was reportedly paid $600,000 for the short. --KYLE HAYES

SJP Doesn't Seem Too Thrilled About The Carrie Diaries
In our minds, Sarah Jessica Parker will always be Carrie Bradshaw. We just haven't figured out how to separate the two in our brains. Even The Edit's Jennifer Dickinson seems to have some trouble differentiating, drawing numerous comparisons between the two throughout the actress's cover story for Net-a-Porter's magazine, asking her about the scope of her wardrobe, her penchant for high heels, HBO's modern day SATC, Girls, and, of course, The Carrie Diaries.
Carrie Bradshaw is Back! How to Get Her Iconic Style Today
Tonight is the big premiere of The Carrie Diaries, the CW show that aims to tell the back story of New York's favorite fictional sex columnist Carrie Bradshaw as young girl who apparently grew up in the Connecticut 'burbs. With Gossip Girl star stylist Eric Daman on board to provide the beginnings of Carrie's theatrical, over-the-top style, we have high hopes for the 80s-inspired clothing that young Carrie as played by AnnaSophia Robb will wear. But as on-point as we're sure the new show's wardrobe will be, we're having a hard time envisioning us trying to cop a 1980s teenager's style--even if she is Carrie Bradshaw. So we thought we'd reminisce about the amazing outfits of OG CB, played to iconic perfection by Sarah Jessica Parker--and recreate them for all you modern-day Carries out there. Let's be honest: Sex and the City might have been a story about a woman and her soul mates (and the men along the way), but her closet definitely deserved top billing. From being mugged for her Manolos to passing out at the opera, here are our top ten Carrie Bradshaw style moments, and where to get 'em for yourself. Don't forget to check out The Carrie Diaries tonight on the CW (if you're not too busy watching The Bachelor, which is sadly airing in the same time slot. Damn you, basic cable!).
Candace Bushnell Defends The Carrie Diaries, Calls SATC Movie Plotlines Unrealistic
Clearly, SJP's not 100% on board with the idea of someone else inhabiting the role she played for eight years on HBO. But shouldn't we care more about the opinion of the person who actually created the character?
