The thing about Sarah Jessica Parker and her line of ugly clothes is that she seemed so terribly gracious at the Bitten debut that we forgot, for a moment, she was acting that way because she was high on her own PCP-laced amazingness:
What was most satisfying to me on the opening day was to see the preponderance of plus-size women and women of color. That's what made me cry..
Which is why she was "so shocked" at Vera Wang's suggestion that she actually wear the same clothes as fat minorities. But isn't she just so magnanimous!
I understand the culture of her business has changed radically, not unlike my primary business where everybody and his mother, with little or no training, wants to be in acting. There are real interlopers in my industry, as in Vera's.
Now, go back to that sentence, and replace "acting" with "God's work," and you will start to sort of see the point of what she says about her "design" gig:
My fatal flaw is that I have to be involved literally down to splitting the atoms.
Because SJP is not a lady who merely semi-attaches her name to clothes she doesn't design manufactured in sweatshops she'll never see, she's a lady who has done coke to that point where she thinks she deserves a Nobel Prize. Or just a narcissist.
