The actress portrayed Carrie Bradshaw in television show Sex and the City, and has just reprised the character for the second movie adaptation. The programme is renowned for the outfits SarahJessica and her co-stars Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis wear, which were chosen by costume designer Patricia Field.
It was recently reported the wardrobe for Sex and the City 2 cost $10 million. Although that hasn`t been confirmed, it is known that SarahJessica gets to keep all the clothing she wears on set. Patricia insists it is understandable that the actress wants to take home the pieces as she is not used to having such lavish outfits. "If there`s anything that makes her like that, it`s that she grew up poor, and she delights in all the things she can have and has," Patricia explained. "She`s lovely, she`s intelligent, she`s articulate. That`s my take on it."
The stylist then discussed SarahJessica`s early life. She was born in Ohio and has seven siblings, and has previously admitted she did not always have new clothes. SarahJessica has praised her mother`s ability to make her kids beautiful clothes, adding she had no problem wearing hand-me-downs because it was exciting to get her sister`s old pieces.
Patricia insists her upbringing had a huge affect on SarahJessica and she is now making up for lost time.
"She`s in a position where she`s offered many things. I am, as well. My take on it is her thing is that she comes from a family that was not wealthy at all, and it was a big family. She remembers her childhood as being poor, and when her career started as a child, she really helped support and provide for her family," Patricia told the American edition of OK! magazine. "Her mom is a teacher, but she had eight kids or whatever. She`s a poor girl made good, and she, like, can`t stop."
