SJP and Mr. Big for Vogue

While women everywhere are busy holding their breaths for the premiere of 'Sex and the City: The Movie," Sarah Jessica Parker and Mr. Big were busy reenacting love scenes with photographer Annie Leibovitz for the June issue of Vogue magazine. In the issue, SJP talks about Carrie, fashion, and her infamous style. Here are some highlights from the interview...

On how she is similar to Carrie:
"We will both try anything. I will try anything for Carrie, and I will try anything for me. In real life I never dressed the way she dressed, nor would I. I grew up in a house of matching. You know, our hair ribbons matched our dress, and our pinafore matched our socks. You didn't clash colors. What I learned by being around Pat Field was there shouldn't be rules in fashion. Things shouldn't go together. And that's the thing that really changed in my own world and the way I choose to dress."

On being trendy:
"Aren't we all supposed to be a little bit the victim of trends? I can look back at pictures of myself with the great assurance that I will be embarrassed by about 60 percent of them. This is the nature of fashion—admiring the wrong girl, you know, looking at the wrong picture, wishing you were somebody else. And that's the developmentally correct thing."

On Carrie's style:
"I would wear anything as Carrie Bradshaw if I thought it would be good for the story. The bits and pieces, and the stuff people object to. And that's Carrie—hits and misses mean nothing to her."
