  2. 2. COSMOPOLITAN: FASHION, SEX, CELEBRITY & CHARACTER doinga brand rightPlaying Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City required 100 hours of wardrobe fittings with legendary stylist Patricia Field. Spending that much time with Field and other designers drew Parker into fashion, and in March she launched her namesake label, SJP, in association with George Malkemus III for Nordstrom. She described the undertaking as an exercise in discipline, in that she had to make sure every item preserved her identity. (She was wearing a hot pink pair of SJP stilettos.) 1

She saw its power immediately, but remains conflicted even as she launches her own label. “I feel like I need to respond to every single solitary plea for a retweet or a birthday wish… I’m hurting the feelings of everyone I don’t.” Parker also has issues with “responding to tweets that aren’t friendly.” By contrast, “the easy child to parent is Instagram,” which provides an unambiguously pleasant experience. 2

On the other hand, Parker is encouraged by what Lena Dunham has done with HBO’s Girls. “Woman want to tell more intimate stories,” she says, “those stories of nuanced characters aren’t big box-office draws.” Parker’s latest effort? A soon-to-launch new HBO show, “Into the Fire,” about married women in their 40s who have affairs. 4

The cable powerhouse then kept the show locked into that time slot. The strategy behind this? New Yorkers were home from the Hamptons by that hour. 5
