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.
