First Halston came knocking on her door, and now New York’s world-famous Metropolitan Museum of Art is recruiting Sarah Jessica Parker for her style expertise. The museum has asked the tastemaker to record an audio guide for their Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit, reports WWD. And with 2010’s theme being “American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity,” Sarah Jessica seems a natural choice. “Because of Sex and the City, she is so much associated with New York and with America, and with using fashion as a way to shape identity,” says Andrew Bolton, the institute’s curator, of choosing their new virtual tour guide. The new exhibit, which will explore perceptions of the American woman from the 1890s to the 1940s, will open on May 5.
