But as we gear up for the 2020 awards show, wondering how exactly fashion will come into play, we're also reflecting back, thinking about the gowns and accessories that once graced the actual red carpet. One person who always steps out in memorable looks, both at events and in everyday life (those gray jeans!), is Sarah Jessica Parker.

We can't blame her, either: this look is classic and versatile, and it's definitely become her signature.
