Sarah Jessica Parker will always and forever be known as America’s favorite New Yorker, Carrie Bradshaw.

And for its vastly anticipated September issue, Harper’s Bazaar features fashion fave Sarah Jessica Parker, pairing the classic beauty with a glitzy Marc Jacobs creation.

The 48-year-old actress got candid with the mag, for what they’ve slated as their biggest issue in page count ever, to gab about her marriage, her views on the “SJP image,” and her various fashion conquests – including dishing that she worked for free with fashion brand Halston.

Alongside her insightful article, SJP posed for the camera in a gorgeous photo spread, and is seen flocking in feathers while donning amazing high-end pieces a la Chanel, Oscar de la Renta and Gucci.

Check out a few excerpts from the interview here:

On her love and marriage to actor Matthew Broderick:

“Matthew and I come from a different time and place. When we were young people, all we ever wanted was to be good working actors. We didn’t think of fame or money because, honestly, money was never part of the dream. It was to work in theater, to be around those people whose work I was in total awe of. I never saw the trappings; nobody talked about being a celebrity. So when our marriage came up in conversation, it wouldn’t occur to us that we were obligated to respond to allegations or gossip. You have to be a bit circumspect, but you also have to take up a position, and you have to stick to it.”

“There’s also the reality of your life,” she continues. “I love Matthew Broderick. Call me crazy, but I love him. We can only be in the marriage we are. We’re very devoted to our family and our lives. I love our life. I love that he’s the father of my children, and it’s because of him that there’s this whole other world that I love.

On the difficulties of collaborating with the fashion world:

“We’ve all worked with complicated people, and I always think that I can disarm them. I love collaborating. I’m a great listener and learner, and I don’t think I know more than they do. I’m transparent.”

On her image:

“I don’t think I’ve ever spent 10 minutes calculating my image. I can’t even recall a conversation.”
