Sarah Jessica Parker, InStyle‘s February cover girl, has debuted a lot of standout looks over the years. We have rounded up her 25 most memorable looks of all time, here for your viewing pleasure. Ever the trendsetter, Parker has captivated us for years with her fearless attitude toward style. “I do love fantasy, color, and the idea of no rules,” the actress told Katie Couric in our February issue. “You know, stripes and stripes and stripes, or every blue at once. It’s good to take chances.”
And, wow, do we love those chances she takes. From her days as Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City to now being a fashion designer and powerhouse mom, she always has her finger on what’s next in fashion. “It’s great to be a mother in jeans or cords, then have these alternate-universe moments where I sort of live in a fantasy,” Parker said of her love for getting to wear something incredible for one night.
Pictured above in looks by Chanel, Proenza Schouler, Marchesa, and Prabal Gurung, the actress has been clothed in some of the biggest designer names in the business, and she’s up for taking risks. “I’ll wear something because I respond to it or am excited about the designer. So I think pulling it off or not pulling it off, that almost doesn’t exist for me because, really, I’m looking for experiences, not some report card. So you choose a dress that people think is a disaster. In the end who really cares?”
