Are Sarah Jessica Parker and Alexander Wang in cahoots? How else to explain the actresses' passionate outpouring of love for the young designer - someone she hasn't remotely been associated with in all her years as a fashion icon. "I absolutely love, love, love his clothes," she gushed pre-show at the Roseland Ballroom, gladly accepting questions for a barrage of reports and video cameras without so much of a flinch or security guard interfering. "I buy him full retail without a second thought. He's so sculptural and he's got sch a great design aesthetic - he's what I choose to wear to look fashion forward." With it being Valentine's Day and all, many a reporter attempted to ask Parker about her plans with hubby Matthew Broderick, whom the tabloids have been circulating marital problems. "That's for me to know and you to - hopefully - never find out," the actress replied.
