ELLE January: Why We Love Sarah Jessica Parker

The actor, producer, mom, mogul, and now bona fide designer is taking care of business the only way she knows how—by throwing herself into it, body and soul.

On her reaction to being offered the position of President and Chief Creative Officer at Halston and Halston Heritage: “I kept saying, ‘You understand, by offering this you are going to be criticized?’ It took me a long time to say yes.”

On taking her role at Halston very seriously: “I said, ‘Please know this now: I will never do this for a title. I will never dip in and out of this. I’ll do it like everything else I’ve ever done. I’ll be involved down to the splitting of the atom.’”

On her design skills: “I might not have the language; I can’t always tell you the exact blend of a fabric, but I figure it out.”

On meeting the twins after their birth: “[Meeting them] is hard to describe. Everything is suspended. I can’t even tell you what other sounds were in the room. I loved them immediately, but everything—their size, the shape of their heads, the color of their hair, their noses, their eyes—was new to me. They looked surprisingly different from James Wilkie, which I wasn’t expecting.

On her daughter Tabitha’s style: “She’s crazy for bows; she wants her head covered in them.”

On aging naturally: “I don’t know what I can do about the aging. Yes, I am aging. Oh my God, I’m aging all the time. It’s like those flowers that wilt in front of you in time-lapse films. But what can I possibly do? Look like a lunatic?”
