In the March issue, SJP holds forth on a number of fun topics, including what she can't live without (a good bra), how to be a well-behaved celeb (return any samples you were loaned), and how Carrie Bradshaw would handle the recession (an excuse to wear 80s fashions).
Here are some fun Q&A from the piece on HarpersBazaar.com:
On how Carrie Bradshaw would handle these recessionary times:
She would probably end up in a hospital. Perhaps she would go back to her '80s stuff and start bringing it out again.
On what she can’t live without:
My son! My husband! Food! Oh, fashion? I don’t know. A good bra?
White it up. I'd wear a beautiful, proper wedding dress, like I should have worn that day. James Wilkie's teacher is getting married, and he said, ‘Do you think she will be wearing black? I said, 'No! I can almost assure you.' Then he said, 'Do you still regret it?' and I said, 'Yes, I still regret it.'
On how the Sex and the City bus tour affects her life as a New Yorker:
Ah, yes, I run into it. There are times when it's totally terrific, and there are times when I'm like, Oh, God, I'd better run in the other direction. Especially when I'm with my son.
On her advice for surviving modern celebrity:
Don't surround yourself with bodyguards and SUVs, and return everything you are loaned in the shape in which you received it. Return jewelry, return bags, clean out the bags!
On TV's current closest thing to Sex & the City -- Gossip Girl.
Are the characters sexually active? I hear it's pretty sophisticated, the content. Is there any concern over the impression that it's making on young women? I'm not asking in condemnation, but I'm just curious.
