Sweet in the City

If ever there is a Fashion Hall of Fame, an entire wing could be dedicated to Sarah Jessica Parker. All the big names would be there: Chanel, Oscar de la Renta, Cavalli, Fendi, Michael Kors, Prada, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana. Just as they were, carefully arranged on seven clothing racks, at our cover shoot. Based on their squeals, it was hard to tell who loved the clothes more — SJP or her twin daughters, who stopped by our NYC set to offer Mom some styling tips.

While the 2-year-olds favored over-the-top frills and sparkles, MC's contributing editor Alison Edmond had a simpler look in mind: easy white tees with edgy skirts and trousers. Parker looked as comfortable in the high-low mix as she might in her own closet. And the tots witnessed a valuable lesson: In order to be a fashion great, a girl's gotta wear the clothes — not let them wear her.
