I got my five minutes — pushed it to 6 and 23 seconds, actually — with Sarah Jessica Parker. And I must say, she was Lovely. First question: Who are you wearing? Her reply: "Who are you wearing? You look nice!" Triumph! I didn’t take the time to tell her, but I’ll tell you: A Zachary’s Smile purple jersey dress cinched at the waist with silk in a green, white and purple print from Barney’s Co-op in Chicago and my perfectly matched purple and green Faryl Robin stacked heels that are worth every blister they’ve caused. But enough about me. SJP struck me as really genuine – or an amazing actress (is there a difference?). She’s quick — played right along when I hit her with a word association game (read what she had to say about Elmo, Sanjaya, botox and more in the Pioneer Press). She’s in love with her little boy — said the toughest part of her job is being away from him. She’s humble — still seems amazed that 2,500 — yes, 2,500 — would crowd into Macy’s to see her. Can you imagine? My question is: would any of them have bought her fragrance, Lovely, if not for the opportunity to meet her? I’ll address that in my column on Friday. But just to recap, SJP liked my dress!!!!
