Sarah Jessica Parker reveals favourite shoes from Sex and the City

Sarah Jessica Parker donned pairs of dazzling designer footwear as shoe-obsessed Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City, but there was one pair she has revealed she won't ever forget. The mother-of-three revealed that a pair of infamous Manolo Blahnik shoes – her character's favourite designer – made a particularly strong impression on her during filming.


Sarah Jessica Parker has revealed her favourite show moment from Sex and the City

"I think the one that people remember, love and talk about a lot is the moment she sees the Manolo Mary Janes in the Vogue closet and says, 'Oh my god, I thought this was an urban myth'," the 50-year-old told Harper's Bazaar. "I think that was a very funny and clever way of talking about something that is to some, a silly sort of infatuation. But it gives it some kind of smarts."

For Sarah Jessica, it was a memorable milestone, and she confessed that she had already seen the shoes, and been such a fan that she added them to her world-famous stylish wardrobe.

"That's great writing and the fact that that great shoe existed… I knew from that, because I had borrowed a pair for an event and ended up keeping them."

She added: "But then, one time, I did see Manolo Mary Janes in the Vogue closet and they weren't beaten up. Mine were soaked from the rain, and I had run city blocks in those shoes. When Carrie said that line, I was like, 'I get it!'"

Off-screen, there's no doubt that Sarah Jessica has a passion for shoes. Ever since launching her own line, the Sarah Jessica Parker Collection, in February 2014, the actress has been growing her empire including designer collaborations, the launch of a bridal shoe collection, and most recently, a deal with major department store Bloomingdale's.
