SJP honoured for creative vision
Sarah Jessica Parker's CLIO Award will honour her "storied career".
The 49-year-old actress will be the first to receive a Honorary Image CLIO Award at the ceremony in New York this evening, where she will be lauded for her input to the fashion and beauty industries.
Sarah has her own fashion line under namesake label SJP and made an impact on the world with her stunning outfits as Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City. On top of these she has also modelled for designer names and has launched her own perfumes.
CLIO executive vice president Nicole Purcell thinks the star is the perfect recipient for the gong.
“Sarah Jessica Parker’s creative vision is expressed throughout her storied career, from her fashion brand to her iconic film and television characters to her support for the arts,” she told WWD. “It’s our honour to toast her achievements at this year’s event.”
The ceremony will take place at The Pierre hotel this evening and is set to be hosted by Andy Cohen, a close friend of Sarah's. He is also set to present her with the award. They are said to have been close for around 20 years and both posed for inaugural issue of the quarterly lifestyle magazine FourTwoNine cover.
There will be well known names in the audience too, such as actress Alysia Reiner and photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.
Sarah hasn't commented on her impending award, but often speaks about her fashion influences.
“I am very taken with [Diane von Furstenberg]. The more I know the deeper part of her, the more I like her. She says crazy, wonderfully outrageous things!” she previously gushed.
“Oh, [Giles Deacon] is the sweetest! Giles’ designs have such a great sense of humour and irony, but they’re also beautiful and look great on a woman.”
