Vogue’s December cover is Sarah Jessica Parker – With an unforgettable role, Sarah Jessica Parker defined a way of being glamorous, fallible, and lovable all at once. Now, as Carrie Bradshaw returns, she’s ready to do it all over again.
On keeping every piece of clothing that Carrie wore, in the show’s six seasons, for the past seventeen years: “I had all of the original stuff in my own storage. Furniture, clothes, everything, packed according to season and episode and scene. I kept every single solitary thing.”
On a conversation she had with Michael Patrick about bringing the show back: “And we spoke about what we were missing in the pandemic: joy, community, the experience of being together. The world of Carrie and her friends has always been about coming home, and I felt like we needed that right now.”
On the misogyny behind the ageism she sees on social media: “There’s so much misogynist chatter in response to us that would never. Happen. About. A. Man. ‘Gray hair gray hair gray hair. Does she have gray hair?’ I don’t know what to tell you people! Especially on social media. Everyone has something to say. ‘She has too many wrinkles, she doesn’t have enough wrinkles.’ It almost feels as if people don’t want us to be perfectly okay with where we are, as if they almost enjoy us being pained by who we are today, whether we choose to age naturally and not look perfect, or whether you do something if that makes you feel better. I know what I look like. I have no choice. What am I going to do about it? Stop aging? Disappear?”
Vogue’s December 2021 issue is available on newsstands nationwide on November 16th.
