For better or worse, she’ll forever be equated with Carrie Bradshaw—but in real life, Sarah Jessica Parker‘s fashion risks are equally divine (see: every look she’s ever worn to the Met Gala). What’s even better, the designer and actor has an uncanny ability to meld classic style with cutting edge, all with an ageless grace we can only hope to achieve. For her latest, SJP demonstrated how women over 40 can appear at once sophisticated and sexy in an outfit Carrie would have totally worn—a custom black and white lace dress by Oscar de la Renta. The full mid-length skirt is akin to many a Carrie ensemble—and that peek of bra? Va va voom! Glimmering metallic pumps (again, entirely Carrie) from SJP’s own shoe collection are the perfect finish to all those soon-to-come holiday party outfits or as a glitzy punctuation to denim. Here, see the stunning look and shop three similar styles from Sarah Jessica’s shoe line. Then, continue on for more of her best looks to date.
