Sarah Jessica Parker: From Carrie Bradshaw to Casual Mom! (Photos)

Sarah Jessica Parker will always be Carrie Bradshaw, even if she doesn't look like her!

It must be pretty tough to be Sarah Jessica Parker sometimes, because she created such an iconic character in her role as Carrie Bradshaw, everyone’s favorite writer on Sex and the City. Carrie was envied by women everywhere for her charm, her wit, and of course, her legendary sense of style. She may have been a fictional character, but I think it’s safe to say that Sex and the City fans really felt as if they knew Carrie Bradshaw. Or at least I did!

Sarah Jessica Parker will probably never shake the whole “Carrie Bradshaw” association, but she’s definitely given up Carrie’s signature daring style since the show ended!

SJP’s style has done a complete and total transformation, and she’s gone from style icon to looking like a regular mom! Keeping up with three kids is no easy feat, and Sarah definitely goes for comfort over fashion trends these days. Even when she gets all gussied up for an event, her look is still much older and different than it was during her Carrie Bradshaw days.

Take a look at these photos of Sarah Jessica Parker now. Don’t these pictures make you miss Carrie Bradshaw?
