Sarah Jessica Parker: Style Evolution (PHOTOS)

The title of Sarah Jessica Parker's new movie, "I Don't Know How She Does It," refers to her character's ability to balance career, family and well, life.

But it might also apply to the actress' chameleon-like talent for trying on an eye-popping array of trends throughout the years.

Like her "Sex and the City" alter ego, Carrie Bradshaw, Parker has never shied away from fashion risks. And while she may have donned some unfortunate ensembles before she was the sleek red-carpet sophisticate she is now, we can't say we haven't enjoyed watching her transformation.

In honor of the film's release today, we've taken a walk down memory lane, starting with some of SJP's awesomely '80s looks and ending with her Little Red Riding Hood frock at the "I Don't Know How She Does It" premiere.
