Sarah Jessica Parker For Vogue US August 2011

Sarah Jessica Parker covers Vogue US, August 2011, photographed by Mario Testino. The photo shoot was inspired by Sarah Jessica's upcoming movie, I Don’t Know How She Does It, in which she plays a financial executive and mother of two young children struggling to balance the pressures of her job with the needs of her family.

Scroll down for more photos (which also feature Sarah Jessica's husband, Matthew Broderick, and their children) and interview excerpts.

On her Sex and the City character, Carrie Bradshaw: “Bradshaw’s life is nothing - nothing - like mine. I loved playing her, and it changed my life in lots of wonderful ways, but I’m not a crazy shoe lady, I don’t think about fashion all day long, although I have a great respect for the industry. Every choice we’ve made has been different, but with Carrie I really understood the attempt at a life.”

On her love of fashion: “I love the opportunity to wear something really special and go to a wonderful event at some great cultural institution. Not to sound too Pollyanna about it, but I really didn’t imagine when I was a little girl that I would be there to see it all myself.”

On her work ethic: “It’s kind of all I’ve known. I’m a bitter-ender. It’s potentially my fatal flaw that I do not give up on something. I will not rest. I work and work and work until I can no longer and someone has to remove me from the premises.”
