Sarah Jessica Parker among stars honouring fashion
NEW YORK (AP) - Fashion may have been the focus of the Night of Stars gala in New York, but actress Sarah Jessica Parker was more interested in talking politics.
"I think there's an enormous amount at stake, it concerns me," said the Sex and the City star of the United States (US) presidential election. She said she would be in "great despair" if President Barack Obama lost the vote to Republican Mitt Romney in the Nov 6 election.
I'm speaking up "for women in this country who rely upon social programs - not because they're lazy, not because they don't want to work hard, not because they feel entitled - but because they need access to basic health care that we all, the privileged few or many of us, sort of take for granted".
Parker was at the downtown soirée to present the Lord & Taylor Fashion Oracle Award to designer L'wren Scott, a celebrity favorite and staple of the red carpet.
