While Carrie and company's first big-screen debut was accompanied by a steamy NYC-set spread starring Sarah Jessica Parker and Chris Noth (which we, um, still
sleep with under our pillows have), the sequel is getting its due with a solo Parker on the cover of the fashion tome's May issue.
Inside, the actress channels classic Hollywood starlets in a blush and claret silk strapless Dior Haute Couture gown worn with a Bulgari necklace, Dior top hat, dusty rose Lanvin dress, Giambattista Valli silk-velvet jacquard dress with matching bolero, voluminous red Chanel frock and butterscotch Vera Wang frock. Carrie would be proud.
And while it would be easy to drool over the clothes and leave it at that, the article features plenty of juicy tidbits worth reading.
Along with intimate details about the birth of her twin daughters, Parker spills style secrets from the set, including that the cast wore longer dresses while shooting in Morocco because of the country's conservative dress code. (We're dusting off our maxi dresses as we type... )
And what of her new role at Halston?
"It's an exciting time at that company," she tells the magazine. "It has had some false starts that are well documented and it is relaunching itself. It has a wonderful legacy, and I couldn't say no, and I'm... uh, figuring it out."
