Sarah Jessica Parker Knew Halston Would Get Flack For Hiring Her, and More From Her January Cover Story in Elle
Gorgeous Sarah Jessica Parker lights up the cover of January's Elle magazine with a new interview about her infant twins and landing the top job at Halston.
"It took me a long time to say yes," she said of being offered the position of president and chief creative officer at Halston and Halston Heritage. "I kept saying, 'You understand, by offering this you are going to be criticized?'"
"I said, 'Please know this now: I will never do this for a title. I will never dip in and out of this. I'll do it like everything else I've ever done. I'll be involved down to the splitting of the atom.'"
However, she admits there has been a learning curve. "I might not have the language; I can't always tell you the exact blend of a fabric, but I figure it out," she said.
It was a blink and you missed it throwaway line in Sarah Jessica Parker's Vogue cover story that we admit went right over our heads (thanks to Fashionologie for bringing it to our attention)--a little phrase that essentially announced the end of Sarah Jessica Parker's relationship with Halston's contemporary label, Halston Heritage, which began in January of last year. Eve MacSweeney writes:
When Sex and the City, to her own surprise, made her a fashion star, she launched her own design label and perfumes, as well as signing on to run the Halston Heritage label, a relationship that recently came to an end.
When fashion glossies do cover stories about Sarah Jessica Parker, they tend to focus on her ability to juggle so many different careers. And her latest, for the September issue of Harper's Bazaar, is no exception. However, it was written by Cathy Horyn and thus unsurprisingly hones in on her fashion career, including how she nabbed that rare Manolo Blahnik shoe line, and what happened at Halston.
Anna Wintour may have helped out with the wardrobe for Sarah Jessica Parker's Glee character--a Vogue.com editor--but she clearly did not have any say in the makeup direction, as we sincerely doubt Wintour or anyone from Vogue suggested she be made to look like former French Vogue editrix Carine Roitfeld.
