Sarah Jessica Parker wears acid-trip color-blocking, claims to drive a minivan


These are new photos of Sarah Jessica Parker outside of The Late Show yesterday. The outfit is Prabal Gurung. Thoughts? It’s looks like an acid trip too me – the colors are too saturated, the pink is too childish, the pants are too high. I’m not saying that all high-waisted pants are bad – I actually think these pants are flattering on SJP, but overall the outfit is bad on her, IMO. Oh, and white shoes? It’s like color-blocked Saturday Night Fever on an acid trip.

By the way, have you heard about SJP’s Nightline interview with Katie Couric? I’ve included the ABC video below – SJP talks and talks about lots of stuff, being a mom and working a lot and all of that, but there’s one particular thing that people are dissecting – SJP claims that she drives a minivan. Jezebel had a piece yesterday on whether that was true – go here to read it. Here’s the video:

SJP on dropping the kids off at school: “If I’m running to work and maybe there’s parents there who aren’t and they’re getting to spend 20 to 30 minutes after drop-off together talking — there’s a part of me that wishes I could be there,” she said. “What I’ve learned about being a parent is how much you sort of secretly learn from everyone else and how valuable it is.”

SJP on her minivan: “Respect the van,” Parker said laughing. “I’m telling you it’s the most wonderful car.”

On the paparazzi: “I think the things that are more painful to me are not the intrusion of paparazzi, it’s the lack of civility that I find more intimidating and far more painful an experience,” Parker said. “It’s the lack of critical thinking. It’s the endless snarky, mean way we talk about each other, we approach each other. The anonymity of being cruel, the delight in tearing people down. The tabloid era that we find ourselves in is a cultural boneyard, and that is painful to me. Dealing with the streets of New York and going to the market myself and navigating being a public person, in physical ways, I am up to the challenge. It is the emotional scar tissue that is incredibly difficult for me.”

She wants to travel: “As far away as possible, with my children,” she said. “Eat the strangest food, see things I could never imagine, smell things, hear things. That I have to do. I have terrible, wonderful, wanderlust.”

Eh. Whatever. Would SJP lie about having a minivan just to seem more mom-friendly? Why would you lie about something that could so easily be confirmed? That being said, I still haven’t seen it confirmed, and Jezebel makes a good point that perhaps SJP is discussing a rental minivan with a hired driver? Or maybe SJP just has a minivan for her Hamptons house?

    Seems to me that we cannot start bitching about SJP lying about this before it’s actually confirmed that she IS lying, right?

  2. Sue says:

    Love the color-blocked but hate the outfit and shoes.

  3. Roxy750 says:

    I hate it so much that I love it. No idea how it works but it does. And she is old.

  4. embertine says:

    OK, maybe I am on acid because I love this, white shoes and all, and I think her hair looks lovely.

  5. brin says:

    Did anyone else find it odd that she says she wants to travel far away with her children and doesn’t mention her husband?

  6. sassenach says:

    LOVE SJP but she knows damn well that she doesn’t have a minivan.

  7. manda says:

    I kind of love those pants! they need to be paired with a different top, though

  8. inthekitchen says:

    I have never gotten her appeal – personality, face and style are all horrid, IMO.

  9. KLaw says:

    Well I actually watched the interview and LIKED her! She’s very well spoken and intelligent. I am officially a fan.

    I also really like the outfit, against my better judgment, as Roxy750 and Embertine said above…

    Something about the way she wears it makes it click.

  10. Green_Eyes says:

    The more uglier and what was she thinking SJP’s outfits become…makes me that much more positive that Patricia Field’s styled not only Carrie on screen but SJP off screen to keep that fashion iconic persona for the Sex and the City ratings.. She wasn’t a fashionista before and other than a few hand few times I haven’t seen as such since! Just sayin….. Looks like someone drenched her bottoms in pepto and her top in marinara… For some that may be a needed combo. But in color palette and wardrobe. AHH NO!

  11. Nanea says:

    At least she covered up her arms…

  12. The Original Ashley says:

    I love that hot pink and red together (I know, I know), but I’m not bold enough to do it. The white shoes however makes me want to go “Seriel Mom” on her.

    A mini-van? Maybe it’s a low SUV and she’s not bright enough to know it’s in fact an SUV?

  13. Kim says:

    I like the outfit. Sure its not for the average person to wear but she is a celeb and they can take fashion risks. I have always like SJP. Something is fishy about her marriage – seems to be sort of a farce marriage but who knows.

  14. Ally says:

    I’m guessing it’s the nanny driving the minivan most of the time, and sometimes SJP takes the wheel. Plus, with three kids and nanny(ies) isn’t a minivan inevitable? Where does she park it, though — she lives in a brownstone.

  15. OMSS says:

    *Screams and scratches eyes out*

  16. OMSS says:

    I usually like her style, but this just took the biscuit! If she wore a knee/’mini’ length skirt in the same colour as the pants I would have liked this. Also, the pants don’t fit her slim frame. I still love her, though. I am about to miss my bedtime so I can watch her on the Johnathon Ross Show- it’s nearly 23:00 in the UK, by the way :D

  17. Blithe says:

    I’m weird, but I actually really love it. And her hair and makeup look great here.

  18. Firecracker says:

    Holy crap, I can’t see! Those colors just clash badly. If she paired those pants with that same blouse, but in white with black pumps I think it’d be stunning.

  19. Sandra Lucc says:

    Oooh, I love these colors! So fun.

  20. taxi says:

    Love it! @omss Why don’t you think the pants fit? They look perfect!

    I saw the Couric interview & SJP was her usual well-spoken, thoughtful, insightful & articulate self. She’s much less trivial than most.

  21. OMSS says:

    @Taxi #1 The looseness of the blouse makes her legs look way too slim. She almost looks unhealthy- trust me I love her bod and hope to tone up someday, but the first and third picture freaked me out!

    #2 I can’t stand bootleg cut pants like that- I’ve been avoiding them for years! :D

  22. MomYa says:

    Why couldn’t SJP drive a minivan. Really, is it to hard to believe that we can take our kids back and forth and still enjoy our ride?
