SJP’s acting career took a seriously ironic turn, going literally from pimples and ponytails to Prada in one fell swoop. At 17, she gained attention as the nerdy and awkward teen, Patty Greene,  on the early ’80s CBS sitcom Square Pegs. But she is best known for her ultra-glamtastic role as Carrie Bradshaw in the HBO series, now blockbuster films, Sex and the City. She captured four Golden Globe Awards, three Screen Actors Guild Awards, and two Emmy Awards for her portrayal as the NYC diva-worthy writer and upstoppable fashionista. WIth Sex and the City 2 just hitting theaters a couple weeks ago, she continues her flawless style statements in the film in these classic aviator  Ray Ban shades, complete with chic head scarf. On the red carpet or big screen, the more we get to see SJP work it the better.  –rpuccia
