But when Sarah Jessica Parker stepped outside her front door, it was all undone - by a sudden gust of wind.
As she walked to a restaurant in New York, a strong breeze pressed her dress tightly to her body and left little to the imagination.
Realising her predicament, she grabbed her coat and covered up - but not before revealing a little more than she had intended.
Miss Parker 44, was taking a break from filming the sequel to Sex And The City when she was ambushed by the weather.
Yesterday she appeared on the Today show, where she talked about her recent experience filming Did You Hear About The Morgans? in New Mexico with Hugh Grant.
The actress says she was so appalled at Grant's nails that she gave him a weekly manicure on the set of their latest movie.
For God's sake I clipped his fingernails, isn't that giving?' she said.
'I thought that the least the globe deserved was a proper, presentable hand and if you look so good from here to here, your digits should look as good.
'He is one of the most dashing men in the world and I was shocked at the state of his fingernails. He has a ragged shovel that he uses - his teeth.
'I am exquisitely skilled with the nail clipper.'
Married to actor Matthew Broderick, 47, Miss Parker recently released pictures of her identical twins, Tabitha and Marion, which she had through surrogacy.
She and Broderick already have a seven-year-old son, James Wilkie, born naturally.
Speaking of parenthood for the second time, Miss Parker said: 'I'm probably faring as well as most working mothers.
'Some days are absolutely triumphant. Other days you’ve basically let everybody down and you lie in bed and live in regret and plan the next day.'
