This star deserves a title of her own, having single-handedly brought fashion with a capital F into living rooms worldwide as Carrie Bradshaw on “Sex and the City.” And her personal style is just as eclectic. She’s a master mixer of vintage and couture, uptown and downtown.

“Sarah Jessica represents the contemporary American woman,” says “Sex” costume designer and friend Patricia Field. “People look to her the way they looked to Jackie O or Grace Kelly in the past. She’s this symbol of style.” For Donatella Versace, “she is the reason designers do what they do. She has a way of reinterpreting our ideas. She is always changing, experimenting with clothes, accessories and hair.”

Designing fans praise her intelligence, body and comedic timing. “She doesn’t have to push the sexy — she’s already done it,” observes Emanuel Ungaro’s Giambattista Valli, who’s dressed her several times. “For the red carpet, I would love to see her in a softer, more romantic way. She’s a mother, still sexy, but I would love to see her pull out a more sophisticated attitude.”

Not Bradley Bayou for Halston. “I would want her to show off more skin. So, the top of the dress would allow her great arms and long, lean neck to be exposed…a high-waisted corset dress with a beautiful U-shape neckline and micro-spaghetti straps.” Zac Posen has other ideas: “Sarah Jessica would look great in a cha-cha dress. It’s sexy and fun, both characteristic of Sarah’s personality. Sarah does not need any tips on hair and makeup — she always does it right!”

We’ll miss Carrie next year, but we can’t wait to see what Sarah Jessica tries on next.
