Actress is named as a fashion icon

Sarah Jessica Parker scooped the inaugural ShoWest Vanguard Award at Thursday’s ceremony in Las Vegas.

The Sex And The City star was lauded for being an inspiration to individualists.

‘Since making her acting debut at the tender age of 8, Sarah Jessica Parker has come into her own as not only an actress but an entrepreneur,’ says the event’s co-MD Mitch Neuhauser.

‘Her incredible range and effortless style have inspired fans around the world to take chances and stand out in a crowd.

‘From her work in film and television to her development of a cost-friendly fashion line, Bitten, Parker is a celebrated icon in film, television and fashion.’

Sarah was thrilled to be honoured.

‘I’m actually confounded as to why I’m the recipient…but I’m extremely flattered,’ she told the Hollwood

‘I will try desperately to be worthy and deserving.’
