Sarah Jessica Parker will launch a new line of shoes and bags with partner George Malkemus, CEO of Manolo Blahnik. “In a silly way, I think it’s what people have expected of me most because of Carrie Bradshaw,” the 48-year-old Sex and the City actress confessed to a Vogue reporter.
In the hit HBO series, Carrie had something of a shoe addiction. One of the most-quoted lines from the show was, “I’ve spent $40,000 on shoes and I have no place to live? I will literally be the old woman who lived in her shoes!”
The SPJ collection will be exclusively sold at Nordstrom department stores, and it is expected to appear early next year.
However, it hasn’t been all glamor, all the time, when we’re talking about Sarah Jessica Parker’s choices in footwear.
In March, The Inquisitr reported on SJP’s claim that wearing high heels for too long has left her with deformed feet. While I don’t doubt that the actress believed what she was saying while she was saying it, I’m going to call bull on her statement that she’d grown an extra bone in her foot. But that’s what she reportedly said then:
“I went to a foot doctor and he said, ‘Your foot does things it shouldn’t be able to do. That bone there … you’ve created that bone. It doesn’t belong there.”
If true, ouch. Hey, ouch even if it isn’t true. But I don’t think humans usually grow new bones.
A few days ago, The Daily Mailposted a set of photos that showed the new comfort-lovin’ Sarah Jessica Parker wearing patterned socks with strappy sandals. Ugh. Not a good look for her or anybody else.
Their writer called it a new trend from SJP, but I’m fairly sure she was being cruel.
According to Vogue’s report, the new line of shoes, bags, and even trench coats won’t be nearly as pricey as the original Manolo Blahniks. Single sole pumps will run $300 or less. Bags will be less than $700.
