Red Carpet Real Estate
Maybe sitting on a townhouse stoop turned out to be less fun for the real life Carrie than the one she plays on T.V.? Especially when such trips were accompanied not by insights into love and life but the constant flash of paparazzi cameras. SJP and husband Matthew Broderick have listed their five-story, 25-foot-wide townhouse at 20 East 10th Street.
This is not the Village townhouse where they hosted President Obama. The couple has two Village townhouses, you see.
The actress who portrayed Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City would like to disavow responsibility for the latest four-ladies-talkin’-in-a-ribald-manner HBO comedy. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Sarah Jessica Parker said ”It’s a very different show.”
Uh-oh! But no beef here, Hollywood feud-watchers. Ms. Parker continued, “the similarity is in the intimacy of the conversations Read More
Fashion's Night Out 2012
It’s already time for Fashion Week again? How did that happen? And not just Fashion Week, but the one that includes New York’s annual Fashion’s Night Out event. This evening marks the third-most important night of the year for Anna Wintour (besides the Met gala and whenever the president is in town), and we’re looking forward to all the celebrity sightings that are sure to occur. Here are our five best guesses of A-list names to appear tonight.
The Eight-Day Week
It’s Fashion Week! The twice-yearly celebration of the best and most outré garments you almost certainly won’t be wearing come fall opens today with the Couture Council Luncheon at Lincoln Center. Oscar de la Renta is to accept an “Artistry of Fashion Award” from Mayor Bloomberg—hey, the man gave himself a third term, he can Read More
SHEKELS AND THE CITY
You wouldn’t think, but not all mail-merge, en masse, preformed emails are alike. Which is why journalism nonprofit ProPublica created their a wonderful little feature—right now, in beta—called the Message Machine, which crowd-sources communications like emails from campaigns, collects them, and notes the small differences. The one they’re working on now is about Sarah Jessica Parker fundraising for Barack Obama in New York City.
It’s pretty interesting to watch—and note—the way most people got emails that left out the emphatic praise of Sarah Jessica Parker from emails other recipients received.
It’s been eight years since Sex and the City ended, but Sarah Jessica Parker can’t stop talking about guys. In a new ad we first noticed during last night’s MTV Movie Awards, she’s rapturous over “the guy who ended the war in Iraq, the guy who says you should be able to marry anyone you Read More
Red Carpet Real Estate
The human embodiment of our very own Carrie Bradshaw might be moving to Brooklyn. Oh, how the times have changed since the writer lived in her rent-controlled apartment on the Upper East Side in 1994.
Now, the Observer has chased Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, her husband, around town tracking their real estate decisions. (It wasn’t that hard; the Observer created her mind.) The real estate desk might have even blown her cover with 88 CPW, but it appeared that she never really left the West Village.
It’s Fashion Week, and through their cephalopod PR operations, designers court deeply unexceptional reality stars, unknown athletes and busybody bloggers. While the foremost fashion personages, the true style icons of our era, may attend a show or two to support a friend, the Fashion Week rodeo has long since lost its appeal for most eminent Read More
As The Observer was led through the bowels of the Met, silent except for a distant industrial hum, we had no way of anticipating the scene that would confront us when we emerged in the main lobby. As we were ushered into the space, hundreds of voices echoed off the walls, creating an almost deafening Read More
A Columbia student noshing in the Barnard cafe spotted an incongruous addition yesterday–Sarah Jessica Parker. Campus student centers are not known for their fine cuisine, and our source did not ask Ms. Parker what, exactly, she was doing so far uptown from Barneys. Whether Ms. Parker was researching a “college years” installment of Read More
