The fashion world has been abuzz for months with whispers about Sarah Jessica Parker signing up to work with Halston, the cult US brand revived by Jimmy Choo head honcho Tamara Mellon. And yesterday WWD confirmed that the Sex and the City star is now officially on board.
When filming for Sex and the City 2 began SJP stepped onto the New York sidewalk wearing a white Halston dress and the rumour mill immediately went into overdrive.
SJP's role at the label is as yet undisclosed, but we're looking forward to seeing her sprinkle her fashion fairy dust over the brand's Heritage Collection, which is where her responsibilities will lie.
