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.
We've all been there: Your friend gets engaged and asks you to be a bridesmaid. So thrilling! Until you remember that you'll be marching down the aisle in a bridesmaids dress, and suddenly images of Fritz Bernaise are dancing in your head. Breathe easy--it doesn't have to be that way.
The music industry hit the red blue carpet last night in Las Vegas for the Billboard Music Awards. We suspect the location may have affected many stars' choice of outfits, because there were a whole lot of sheer and slashed looks--not to mention a serious lack of pants. Also side ass is back! Thanks Ke$ha!
Halston has had a rough go of it in recent years. Once one of the it-labels in the US, it's gone through countless owners, designers and reinventions, none successfully. Not even Harvey Weinstein and Sarah Jessica Parker could make it work. So, could a new team in new fashion capital Los Angeles be its saving grace?
Usually, it’s editorial shakeups that get us all confused and inspire us to create befuddling charts and guides to recap and (at least attempt to) make sense of movement within the fashion industry. Lately, however, it seems that most of the movement is taking place at big fashion houses. Whether it’s the economy or designers getting burnt-out, it seems like a top level position opens (or gets filled) every week. From Galliano's exit from Dior to Marios Schwab's from Halston (which happened so recently we didn't have a chance to include it), here’s our little visual guide to the recent ins and outs at major fashion houses.
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.

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.
