Sure, Sarah Jessica Parker just added the perfect LBD to her SJP fashion line, but back in the day, she wore a LOT of crazy: particularly for her role as Carrie Bradshaw on the (possibly reprised?) Sex and the City. And yet, if there’s one outfit this fashion daredevil regrets over the years, it’s a… black dress? Let us explain.
When Sarah was tying the knot with hubby Matthew Broderick back in 1997, she decided to take a MAJOR fashion risk: one that makes going down the long-sleeved or dip-dyed route seem like the least daring thing a bride could do. She wore (gasp!) a black bridal gown.
So why isn’t the 51-year-old actress proud of her bold statement? Weeeeeeell, while chatting with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, she revealed that it wasn’t exactly planned that way.
After Andy posed a fan question about the star’s “badass” dress choice, Sarah was quick to jump in and humbly reveal the truth behind her unconventional frock: “Oh, I wish it was because I was badass! I just was too embarrassed to spend any time looking for a wedding dress. (Time out — WHAT? She literally could have had any designer in the world send her a dress, she didn’t even need to look! We so feel like Anthony during that part in SATC 2 where she shows him the suit dress RN.) “There was a store that I liked that I knew, and I just went and got whatever they had hanging.”
While Andy voiced his approval of the daring decision, declaring, “I love it!”, SJP left no doubt about her feelings toward it when she concluded: “No, I would do it differently.”
Well, one thing’s for sure: At the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter WHAT she wore to her nuptials, because she and hubby Matthew have had one of the best relationships in Hollywood, and really, that’s all that matters!
