We’re quite accustomed to seeing an on-set Sarah Jessica Parker striding down the streets of New York as Sex and The City darling Carrie Bradshaw. However, SJP has swapped roles and styles to play the lead character in new comedy I Don’t Know How She Does It.
In a cute but conservative outfit, SJP sprinted down the snowy streets while playing the character of working mum Kate Reddy. The comedy, originally a book by Brit author Allison Pearson, follows the juggling act that is Kate’s life as a career woman and mum of two children.
A workwear ensemble of pretty blouse and pencil skirt were worn under a classic tailored winter coat and teamed with on-trend leopard print heels and Mulberry’s Alexa handbag.
Thankfully Sarah Jessica wasn’t risking life and limb in stilettos on those icy cobbles though. Following New York’s snowiest January in 86 years, ironically the film crew had to recreate a blizzard as temperatures in the city have since risen.
With a cast including Pierce Brosnan, Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks and Frasier funny man Kelsey Grammar, we think the film’s set for success. But we’ll have to wait until it's released in early 2012 to find out.
