Only Sarah Jessica Parker Could Make A Bum Bag Look Chic On The Red Carpet...

Sarah Jessica Parker just threw the red carpet dressing rule book right out of the window and we totally love her for it

Sarah Jessica Parker is one of our all-time favourite style stars and continues to influence our wardrobes every time she steps out of her NYC home. From her off-duty looks to her ultra-glam ensembles, we can always count on SJP to up the fashion game wherever she's at, and her latest look is no exception. 

We clocked the 49-year-old Sex And The City actress as she attended the Art Of The Pixel gala in New York looking utterly stunning on the red carpet. Her feather-trim dress may have packed a pretty style hit but it was actually her unusual accessory choice that really caught our eye. Yep, shes clearly learnt a thing or two about killer accessories throughout her years playing the Manolo Blahnik-loving role of Carrie Bradshaw... 

In a bold move, SJP ditched the classic red-carpet arm candy of a box clutch or a bejewelled pouch in favour of something way more offbeat; and we reckon her decision has paid off big time. 

Over the top of her statement frock, Sarah chose to don a bum bag as her holdall for the evening, throwing the red carpet dressing rule book right out of the window as she went. 

Forget everything you thought you knew about the previously unsavoury bum bag - flashbacks of our folks on holiday circa 1991 aptly spring to mind - because, as Sarah proves, they can look seriously chic. 

Obviously, SJP didn't snap hers up from the local camping store; it's none other than Chanel, as those interlocking double C's allude and, thanks to it's no-fuss leather finish, it blends in seamlessly with the rest of her stunning look. 

We don't know about you but, although we're pretty taken with Sarah's bum bag, we don't exactly have the spare cash lying around to fork out for her designer version. Enter high-street fashion favourite Zara, who has come up trumps with its very own luxury bum bag that's way more affordable than SJP's hefty price-tag original... 

At just £29.99, Zara's body bag won't break the bank and will give us that SJP fashion fix we're in constant search for. Rock it with an oversized jumper and skinny jeans for day or, after dark, try layering it over a full skirted frock for a dose of instant cool.

Well, if it's good enough for Sarah...
