Sarah Jessica Parker Hones in on Halston

It’s been almost a year since Sarah Jessica Parker took the creative and presidential helm at storied American fashion label Halston, but the Hollywood heavyweight turned hands-on exec has no intention of relinquishing control anytime soon. “I will never dip in and out of this,” she asserts in the January 2011 issue of Elle. “I’ll be involved down to the splitting of the atom.” And though she admits to lacking traditional fashion industry experience, Parker relies on her stylistic sensibilities and resourcefulness to get the job done. “I can’t always tell you the exact blend of a fabric, but I figure it out,” she explains. One thing the 45-year-old style icon does have figured out is a healthy approach to aging gracefully. “I’m aging all the time,” she laughs, “But what can I possibly do? Look like a lunatic?” And though she may not be preoccupied with finding the fountain of youth, we think she looks hotter than ever in her belted emerald green tunic dress and gray bodysuit and pleated skirt–all by Halston Heritage, of course. Hey, you can’t slight a girl for loyalty! For more photos, visit and for the full scoop, pick up the January issue of Elle, on stands Dec. 15. – Justine Harman

Unquestionably imagine that that you staetd. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the internet the easiest factor to bear in mind of. I say to you, I definitely get irked at the same time as other folks think about concerns that they just don’t recognise about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest as well as defined out the entire thing without having side effect , other people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thank you
