Sarah Jessica Parker Takes A Walk In Carrie’s Shoes!

The former 'Sex and the City' star models the 'Carrie' shoe from her new collection

Sarah Jessica Parker knows shoes.

After more than a decade playing the shoe-obsessed Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City, the actress has walked in hundreds of sky-high Manolo Blahniks. But now she’s taking a spin in her own line of fancy footwear.

The 48-year-old mum of three showed off her collection on the US chat programme The Wendy Williams Show. She modelled the Carrie shoe, a navy-blue patent stilettos are named of her her iconic S&TC character.

The designer explained that all her shoes feature her signature mark: a stripe of grosgrain up the back.

‘When I was a little girl we had to wear braids in our hair everyday and ribbons. We had no money but we had a bureau filled with ribbons,’ she explained.

‘So when I was in an early design meeting I asked if we could put grosgrain up the back seam.’

SJP’s shoes are available to purchase from Nordstroms from Feb. 28.
