Tropes in her life and work:

  • All Women Love Shoes: High heels especially. During a quick interview with Vogue, one of her questions is "Heels or flats?" She just looks at the interviewer like "Seriously?"
  • Brainless Beauty: Not one in real life but perhaps surprisingly for those only familiar with her through the wry Carrie, Parker played a lot of bimbos in her early career (see her roles in L.A. Story, Hocus Pocus, Mars Attacks!, The First Wives Club and State and Main.)
  • I Am Not Spock: invoked Probably permanently linked with Carrie in the public mind, though she has had a busy post-Sex and the City movie career.
  • Massive Numbered Siblings: Has seven siblings, many of whom are also in the entertainment industry.
  • "Sesame Street" Cred:
    • Parker has appeared on Sesame Street a couple of times; in a 2007 episode, she demonstrates the word "sigh," and in a 2010 episode, she appears in a sketch that demonstrates "big, bigger, biggest," stating that she is "waiting for Big" (Big Bird, that is).
    • She also appeared in the "Passover" and "Kids Sing Israel" episodes of Shalom Sesame (a co-production between the domestic Sesame Street and its Israeli counterpart, Rechov Sumsum).
