Sarah Jessica Parker, who influenced millions with her celebrity fashion style in Sex and the City, is one of many stars who have embraced the recent “hippie chic” trend. Minidresses, maxi dresses, and even hot pants have been seen on the catwalks recently, and fashion industry insiders say that the look is popular because it embraces both comfort and originality.
Parker will need to be comfortable for her latest television job, judging Ovation TV’s “Battle of the Nutcrackers.” It’s a dance-off featuring several productions of the holiday classic by Tchaikovsky. Hosted by Parker and Damien Woetzel, beginning December 6 a different version of The Nutcracker will be aired every night, with viewers voting for their favorite. The winner is to be announced on Christmas Eve.
