Well, I finally know why Sarah Jessica Parker has been cozying up to all of those Real Housewives. It seems like SJP talked her way into her own Project Runway-like show on Bravo, only instead of promoting up-and-coming fashion designers, SJP is doing a competition with artists. Like, painters and sculptors. It’s called Work of Art: The Next Great Artist (WoA: TNGA, bitches). It premieres on Bravo June 9, and the show has already been filmed, with SJP as executive producer. The show had its “launch” last night in New York, and these photos of SJP in the off-white dress are at the launch. The winner of WoA:TNGA gets $100,00 and a solo show in Brooklyn. So, basically, Hipster Heaven.
By the way, do you think that f-cking heart pendant is big enough?
Being a devoted mother and glamorous career woman is just all in a day’s work for Sarah Jessica Parker. The actress, who welcomed twins Tabitha and Marion via surrogate ten months ago, spent the afternoon strolling through the streets of New York with one of her daughters yesterday.
The adorable baby girl, who was dressed in a white bonnet, pink jumpsuit and matching cardigan, smiled and giggled as Sarah made her daily trip to collect son James, 7, from school.
Hours later she had transformed into a red carpet star for the launch of new reality TV show Work of Art: The Next Great Artist, which she is executive producing. The 45-year-old looked effortlessly stylish as she arrived at the Paley Centre for Media in an oyster jersey dress, chunky gold necklace and peep-toe heels.
She has teamed up with the makers of Project Runway to create the series, which will bring together 14 aspiring artists to compete for a solo show at a nationally recognised museum and a cash prize.
Of the new show, she has said: ‘There are also countless artists who are working in obscurity, and I thought there was a time in our country where we supported our artists and wouldn’t it be great it we could go support artists and give them an audience. And we could, as Americans learn about what it is to be an artist, and about art and how we feel about art.’
She is also gearing up to hit the promotional trail for the Sex and the City sequel, which is released next month.
The star, who is married to actor Matthew Broderick, has previously said she had ‘enormous regrets’ about agreeing to appear in the big screen follow-up because it took her away from her family.

Before we all pile on SJP for taking on yet another project after she just had to have those twin babies, I should also point out that SJP has been spending a lot of time lately with her kids, as there have been about twenty million photos of her with one (or both) of the twin girls over the past few days. I have no idea which twin is which, all I know is that at least one of them has an adorable baby Mohawk. After the Mohawk outing, though, SJP keeps her babies bonneted. Seriously, this is just an adorable baby:
