Sarah Jessica Parker’s ‘Sex and the City’ shoe collection for auction
The popularity of ‘Sex and the City’ as a sitcom, and later as a movie series is still largely unparalleled, when it comes to making lifestyle statements. All the actresses including Sarah Jessica Parker, gained a considerable amount of fame for her role as Carrie Bradshaw. Now the actress is looking to sell her entire shoe collection for the movie , to raise funds for the LaGuardia High School for Music, Art and the Performing Arts in New York. She reportedly had kept nearly 70% of the wardrobe that was used for movie and television series, which she co-produced, and now she will be letting go some of it for a charitable cause. Each of the pairs have been signed by Sarah Jessica Parker herself, with some of them even sporting a hand-written note, like ‘Enjoy and be careful’ with the silver snake-skin sandals by Jonathan Kelsey.
Apart from the silver snake-skin sandals which carries the pink handwritten note pictured below, there are some other high-end designer labels to opt for at the auction. There will be a pair of brown Prada studded peep-toe high heels, apart from a pair of black heels from Dolce Vita, which are pretty much signature creations of the brand. However, the bidding for these celebrity shoes ought to see plenty of fierce bidding from a wide variety of participants, as prices start as low as $100.
But like most of the movies she does, Sarah Jessica Parker had an interesting, or rather painful encounter with high heels. Back in 2011, when she was playing the character of Kate Reddy in the movie, ‘I don’t know how she does it’, she had to select a few pairs of high-heels from regular labels, and not the designer ones she would opt for. Then on one occasion, due to the plastic fabrication of those heels, she ended up twisting her ankle. It is from this experience that she put on a ‘must do’ when it came to buying her footwear.
However, this isn’t the first time we see Sex and City memorabilia get attention. Back in 2008, there was a special $24,000 Sex and the City Tour, which gave chances to the movie series fans, to relive the lifestyle of the characters they saw on screen. Last year, the $9.85 million Townhouse sale in which ‘Carrie Bradshaw’ lived, was grabbed pretty quickly by an anonymous buyer.
