Sarah Jessica Parker’s ‘I Don’t Know How She Does It’ Salutes Working Moms

Sarah Jessica Parker flaunts working mom style in I Don't Know How She Does It

New York–Carrie Bradshaw she ain’t, but in “I Don’t Know How She Does It,” Sarah Jessica Parker stars as a high-powered finance exec striving to maintain a semblance of her professional and personal self after having two children.

If the movie poster is any indication, look for lots briefcases and sexy gadget accessories from woven leather laptop bags to sleek pink iPad cases.

Also look for glimpses at modern workplace style, including pointy pumps and even—gasp!—sheer hosiery!

While Parker’s character is the envy of stay-at-home moms, who catch glimpses of her pulled-together professional style at kid drop-offs and pick-ups, mom herself feels anything but polished. One scene has her adjusting her hosiery in the office while her colleague (or perhaps her client?) catches a glimpse.

If you ask us, it’s a bit of the “Sex and the City” characters all combined, from Mr. Big (now partially channeled through Sarah Jessica Parker) to high-powered lawyer Miranda to fashion plate Carrie to happy homemaker Charlotte. Samantha and her mojo, however, seem absent. Welcome to motherhood!
