The Simply Luxurious Life®: Sarah Jessica Parker – Vogue US – August 2011

Sarah Jessica Parker – Vogue US – August 2011

There is a reason Sarah Jessica Parker continues to win the coveted covers of Anna Wintour’s Vogue (this is her sixth) and while this month (August 2011) it pertains to the Age Issue (Parker is 46) and the upcoming release of her new movie I Don’t Know How She Does It (which I can’t wait to see as it is scheduled to be released on September 16th - view the trailer here), the more commercial fact is that she sells magazines. Many may tire of Ms. Parker’s nearly annual Vogue cover appearances, but I am not of that category.  I personally adore her and will admit to purchasing a magazine simply because she is there. Am I a sucker? Maybe. But her style, charisma and success continue to impress me and until I tire of such qualities, the magazine editors will have continued to have won me over with the choice of placing her on the covers.

The one difference in this photo shoot that I was captivated by was the inclusion of her husband Matthew Broderick and their three children James Wilkie and twin girls Loretta and Tabitha. Parker is fairly successful in separating her professional and private life, but in this instance photographer Mario Testino captures them in a traditional, yet contemporary pose – beautifully done. Sharing her thoughts on fashion, success and her family, she seems to be softening a bit regarding sharing bits and pieces of her family. Some breaking news that is revealed and mentioned ever so subtly in the interview is that she no longer is working with the Halston Heritage Collection (reasons as to why she left are speculated about in a Daily Beast article here).  Read the entire Vogue article and interview by Eve MacSweeney here.

I love her style. She seems to have a confidence about everything she wears. The two of them are just always a marvelously turned out couple.

I adore SJP as well. I love her enthusiasm and good nature and of course her fashion sense! It's so sweet the way Matthew lets her have the spotlight when they're together. They seem like a lovely couple.
