>It’s not fair to always compare Sarah Jessica Parker to her iconic onscreen persona Carrie Bradshaw. They have their similarities, sure, but are not necessarily two peas in a pod. However, considering one of Parker’s most recent ensembles, we couldn’t help but feel a bit of déjà vu. Specifically to SATC season five.
Late last week, the actress arrived in Madrid just in time for a bit of a downpour. Despite the weather, Parker stuck to a footwear silhouette that’s often seen on both her and Bradshaw alike: ladylike heels. While the style is not necessarily practical for any kind of bad weather, her choice did instantly hark back to Bradshaw, who’s sported a pair of heels (or two—or three) in the rain before. (See her with her newspaper umbrella, below.)
>We’ll give it to Parker: Her choice—though not traditional rain boots—is a bit more protective than slim stilettos, as she layered socks beneath and chose a thicker, sturdier heel. Is either option rain-appropriate? Not really. But we’re still delighted by the similarity… and can certainly commiserate as far as getting caught by a surprise rain shower.

SJP looks much more relaxed here (thanks, umbrellas) in her Mary Janes and layered socks.
