sarah jessica parkerSex and The City actress Sarah Jessica Parker has revealed she dressed "like the Kennedys" when growing up despite coming from a poor family.

The actress says although she has a humble background, her mother strived to dress her and siblings as well as she could by buying "flawed" dresses, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"For the early part of my life I grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. We had no money. But we had this factory called Polly Slenders where my mother could go and get flawed dresses, so we were dressed like the Kennedys," she said.

"That's how I started learning about clothes. I didn't have access to clothing the way I did over the course of my tenure over at Sex and the City, but I knew what was beautiful," she added.
