Sarah Jessica Parker may the queen when it comes to red carpet dressing, but it's not just her outfit that caused waves this time. While many thought her braided updo was a tribute to the late Carrie Fisher, Parker explained her inspiration to Natalie Morales. “There’s actually a photograph of my mother wearing her hair like this," she said.

How do you create an updo of such epic proportions? Perhaps the secret lies in extensions. Parker gave us an inside look on Instagram.

And if you think Parker's hairstyle looks familiar, you're correct! In season 6 of "Sex and the City," Parker's character, Carrie, rocks a very similar hairstyle for Charlotte and Harry's wedding.
