Sarah Jessica Parker's Stylish New Job: Museum Tour Guide!

First Halston came knocking on her door, and now New York’s world-famous Metropolitan Museum of Art is recruiting Sarah Jessica Parker for her style expertise. The museum has asked the tastemaker to record an audio guide for their Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit, reports WWD. And with 2010’s theme being “American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity,” Sarah Jessica seems a natural choice. “Because of Sex and the City, she is so much associated with New York and with America, and with using fashion as a way to shape identity,” says Andrew Bolton, the institute’s curator, of choosing their new virtual tour guide. The new exhibit, which will explore perceptions of the American woman from the 1890s to the 1940s, will open on May 5.

Who would have thought that would happen?

Who wants to hear SJP’s voice while walking through a museum? One word: ridiculous.

I can’t help but wonder… will it be Sarah Jessica Parker’s voice we hear, or will it be Carrie Bradshaws’??

Elizabeth on

I think that’s great! I’d love to go see it! And I’d rather hear her voice, someone is truly a fashion icon, especially for NYC to do it rather than a random female voice.

The absolutely right choice…..for all the reasons stated. Why the snide remarks…?

Debbie on

SJP is fashion, and is New York City! She is the perfect choice! I think she has classic ageless beauty, and anyone who takes the tour will be lucky! Me, living in Colorado will never get the chance. :(

Jade on

Great choice. I love Sarah, she is a class act.

How nice for Sarah that she can contribute to something so worthy; I am sure she is thrilled. I, for one, will listen to her next time I am in NYC visiting my daughter!
