She may be a style icon, but former Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker swears she’s not as fashionable as she used to be now that she’s spending more time at home with her kids.
“I never dress up that much,” she tells UK newspaper the Daily Express. “These days, I’m lucky if I go out to a friend’s house. Most of my day is spent as a mother, which requires an entirely different wardrobe.”
“Although I appreciate beautiful clothes,” the star says, “I’m not into fashion as people expect me to be.”
It would be tough to be in Carrie Bradshaw drag while acting in her main role as mom to children James Wilkie, 9, and twins Tabitha and Loretta, 4, whom she jokes help her stay fit because they “act like arm weights.”
“I don’t think I’m in that great shape these days,” the former ballet dancer (and current yoga devotee) says. “I have to work out a lot harder. The body just doesn’t snap back in the way it used to when I was in my twenties.”
And when it comes to her beauty routine, SJP has a simple mantra. “I believe in buying as many antiaging creams as possible,” she says. “Use any cream that says ‘elimination’ in big bold letters on the jar. I swear by Garnier Ultra-Lift cream. It targets wrinkles and dryness as well as being really inexpensive.”
