Sarah Jessica Parker poses in springy, floral getups for Net-A-Porter's most recent edition of its online mag, The Edit, (not to be confused with their new print mag, Porter). In the accompanying editorial, we learn that SJP is wonderful and caring, and that sometimes your words on Twitter really hurt her.

The actress refers specifically to a Twitter brouhaha brought on when a women asserted that SJP's twins Tabitha and Loretta didn't look like her, calling into question their exact parentage (the children were born via a surrogate). It hit a nerve:

That particular day, it was just one of the things I saw. I kept scrolling and then I was like, 'Wait a minute, did she just say that?' I went back and I thought, 'Well, this isn't unhealthy paranoia, this is absolutely conscious. This was a choice.' She, not subtly at all, said that my children are not my children. There have been a few – let's say half a dozen – times in my career when I have wanted to respond. I don't want to encourage people picking on her, because that's no better. But I wrote back, 'What? Like, is this fun?' She never responded and deleted it.
Parker has given a lot of thought to what was probably a thoughtlessly typed-out Tweet. "I would love to hear from her," she said. "I would just like to understand."

SJP wears a Mary Katrantzou coat.

The actress also ruminates on the tough going many designers face, mentioning the recent suicide of L'Wren Scott. "I went to see the Gauguin exhibit [recently]," she said. "People say it's the greatest exhibit of his work ever put together. But he died penniless. There was no recognition of his work by the art market. I mean, Gauguin!"

Parker said that launching her own line, SJP Collection, made the issues faced by designers more personal to her. "When I started the shoes, people said, 'That must be so hard!' But building a collection of clothing is very different to building a collection of shoes. The ready-to-wear calendar is crazy."
