While Los Angeles may be the celebrity capital of the world, the city isn't home to all the A-listers. For instance, quintessential New Yorker Sarah Jessica Parker!
SJP fans in Southern California don't get much of a chance to see their idol in person. But last night they had one such opportunity, as the star was in town promoting her newest fragrance, Stash, at an Ulta store in a nondescript mall in the middle of the city known as Midtown Crossing. Far from glitzy, the complex includes such stores as a Smart and Final discount grocery and a Lowes home improvement store. So you can imagine how truly surprised fans were when SJP popped up for her surprise appearance and meet and greet!
She only revealed her appearance shortly before it happened. When she got to the store — in time for one of L.A.'s stunning signature sunsets — she posted a video message on Instagram, with the caption, "On your way home from work? On your way to dinner? I'm at West Pico @ultabeauty. Right here. Right now. Here until 9 telling the STASH story. X, sj"
In the vid, she says, "Very rarely in Southern California. So come — smell the fragrance!"
A limited number of fans got a chance to meet the star after making their purchase of the new scent. We only wish we'd gotten through mid-city L.A. traffic soon enough to be among them.
