There are perfectly good celebrity style moments, and then there are the looks that really stick with you, the ones you try desperately to recreate at home. In ‘Great Outfits in Fashion History,’ Fashionista editors are revisiting their all-time favorite lewks.
Sarah Jessica Parker has been a fashion inspiration with real staying power, from her on-screen performance as Carrie Bradshaw in “Sex and the City” to real-life appearances. Her looks from the late ’90s and 2000s are a treasure trove of creative takes on trends of the times.
Take, for example, her ensemble for the 1999 CFDA Awards: Parker went full Y2K casual, wearing a Prada tube top from the designer’s Spring 1998 collection paired with sateen short shorts and pointy-toe pumps. A Louis Vuitton bag, made with the brand’s Vernis leather in pale butter yellow (now reselling for $300 and up), completed the outfit. The heels appear to be a slingback version of Marc Jacobs’ mouse shoes.
