Sarah Jessica Parker on the January 2017 Cover of InStyle Magazine

Sarah Jessica Parker has been enjoying the success of her hit TV show 'Divorce' and soon she will be opening her first shoe store. You can also catch her on the January 2017 cover of InStyle magazine. On the cover which was shot by Thomas Whiteside, SJP is wearing a DOLCE & GABBANA dress. In the issue, she talks her style evolution, her hit show 'Divorce', deleting her twitter account and more. Continue below to read some excepts from her interview. For more on SJP's feature, visit and pick up a copy on newsstand December 9th. 

On her style influences as a young woman
…street imagery and girls on the subway more than anything. I was like, 'How can I do that? How can I afford to do that? What’s my version of that?’ Honestly, thrift stores played such a huge part in my life before Sex and the City. And, of course, my mom was the biggest influence. She had pretty firm ideas about how we would dress.

On the evolution of her style
I dress based on what I have. I’m not a huge shopper, but I love beautiful things. To be able to borrow them is ridiculously fortunate, and I enjoy every second of that. I have a pretty standard wardrobe, though I’ve got wonderful shoes. That’s more so the case now. I genuinely don’t know what people think of me or want from me.

On playing a less-than-enviable character in HBO’s Divorce
It’s taken me a long time to find anybody who I thought had as much potential as [Sex and the City’s] Carrie Bradshaw, who was as complicated, human, layered, and objectionable yet understandable, relatable yet foreign. People think she was a second skin for me, but she wasn’t. I didn’t know her at first. She was different from me as anybody I’d ever played or known. So I feel like Frances is equally as interesting and unknown to me.

On deleting her Twitter
I don’t have the constitution for Twitter. It’s a boneyard, a feast of vitriol. I just don’t want to participate in it. But on Instagram people tend to be more civilized. And they can disagree and have objections, but I don’t find it as mean-spirited a community.

On handling celebrity as a parent
We talk about it with the kids to the degree that they want to, but we don’t do it unsolicited…Like any parent, I just try to be present, pay attention, ask questions, and then allow them the freedom to monitor themselves. Hopefully, they’ll live by our example. It’s hard, because you want to give them freedom, but as a parent you have to be willing to not be liked by your child sometimes.
