American actress Sarah-Jessica Parker is as renowned for her impeccable style as she is for playing glamourous writer, Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City. Starring alongside Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon, Sarah worked with good friend and stylist, Patricia Field to create Carrie's seriously stylish, fashion-forward walk-in wardrobe. Who can forget the impressive Manolo collection and that legendary tutu she wore in the opening sequence? But it was SJP's off-screen wardrobe that we were left lusting after. Since the late nineties, Sarah has followed her own daring rules on - and off - the red carpet. Bandeau tops, shorts and even a man's tuxedo jacket worn as a dress, this lady has always known how to create a fashion frenzy, never shying away from making a statement. Nowadays, her style is all about sophisticated elegance. With couture, designer vintage pieces and the catwalk collections at her disposal, it's no surprise she's the world's most talked about fashionista. Whether she's mooching around Manhattan or perched front row at New York Fashion Week.
