After stepping out in looks from Halston on the Sex and the City 2 set, rumors sparked that Sarah Jessica Parker was about to ink a deal with the company. And now, it looks like the brand has finally gotten “Carrie-d” away. Sarah Jessica will be taking on an active design role, possibly even that of creative director, for Halston Heritage, the company’s just-launched secondary collection that features updated archival Halston pieces at contemporary price points, reports WWD. The company has yet to release details on their decision to add the actress to their team, but one thing is for sure, Sarah Jessica is no stranger to the fashion game. Having reached fashion icon status playing Sex and the City‘s Carrie Bradshaw, the actress went on to create the affordable apparel line Bitten for Steve & Barry in 2007. (The line was discontinued a year later.) We can’t wait to see how Sarah Jessica will put her fashion-forward imprint on the label once favored by First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy to jet-setters Bianca Jagger and Elizabeth Taylor. Tell us: What do you think of Sarah Jessica’s new role?–Andrea DeSimone

The truth is Penelope Cruz, Charlize Theron, Selma Hayak are a few that really look fantastic……..And they can act…….There is always that pedestrian mentality however……….Ohhh…..Dear……I had my own label at 22……..Before children………….There……..I think I have a grip and a point of view…….I do think her name carries weight……..Good luck

Congrats to Sarah!! What an amazing opportunity and I am sure she will be fabulous in her new role.

Ms. Parker has always been involved in fashion. You don’t wear the latest by not knowing what is going on and that is the whole design game. She will be great!

I don’t believe Bitten was discontinued, Steve & Barry went under, there’s a huge difference.

[…] But all of this left me curious: why now, Halston, with the doing what you do best? Well, a few, quick turns on Google gave up the answer right away. Harvey Weinstein, the American movie mogul, bought the label in the spring of 2007.  At the time, many in the fashion world decried the advances of an interloper. But Weinstein is no stranger to the business: his girlfriend, Georgina Chapman, along with her business partner, Keren Craig, designs the high-end feminine frocks at Marchesa; and Weinstein, through his former film company, Miramax, was responsible for Robert Altman’s satirical 1994 look at the industry, Prêt-a-Porter.
