Sarah Jessica Parker as bridesmaid for Melinda Reylea

SJP was a bridesmaid for her former assistant, Melinda Reylea


We can't imagine many people would ask their boss to be a bridesmaid at their wedding, but then not many people can call Sarah Jessica Parker their employee.

So we totally understand why Melinda Reylea, who was Sara Jessica's assistant during her Sex and the City days, and is now vice president of the actress's production company, requested that SJP help her down the aisle at her wedding to James Kearns in Greenwich, Conneticut on Saturday – we'd certainly love it if the fashion icon was on hand on our big day to dispense some sage style advice.

Wearing a magenta column dress, that matched with Melinda's other five bridesmaids (we love that SJP was totally down with doing the whole 'one dress fits all' bridesmaid thing), the Hollywood star looked stunning as she posed for photos.

And luckily for us, SJP was busy sharing pictures of herself and the bride on Instagram, too.

'Its wedding day for Melinda! My bridesmaid dress, stretching, releasing wrinkles and then a quick disco nap before heading towards church and a very joyous day and night. X sj' Sarah Jessica wrote on Instagram.

And although SJP's dress was lovely, no-one would have been able to upstage the bride in her extravagant Oscar de la Renta gown.

Not even Carrie Bradshaw herself…
