Parker’s inspired by street style

arah Jessica Parker’s style is inspired by “women on the street”. The ‘Sex and the City’ actress was slammed last week after wearing stirrup tights to the launch of her new shoe collection, but she couldn’t see a problem with the quirky look. She said: “It’s been so cold in New York that bare legs seemed almost undoable... So I started wearing tights, then I saw a woman in Seattle wearing stirrups with a pump and thought, ‘Maybe I’ll start wearing them with a strap shoe.’ “I am often inspired by women on the street whose names I’ll never know.” However, despite being regarded a fashion icon to many women, the 48-year-old star admitted she is unsure if the look will take off. Speaking to Grazia magazine, she added: “I don’t know if they’ll catch on.” The unusual legwear, teamed with pointed strap shoes and a dress, saw one website claim the actress had worn “every ugly item of clothing she owns in one outfit”, and branded the tights a “disaster”. — Bang Showbiz
