It’s finally here. Sex and the City- all 2 hours and 20 minutes available for your viewing pleasure this Friday.
I remember when I could go from dorm room to dorm room, only to hear SATC on infinite repeat. Admittedly, I was not sold from the beginning, but you can’t deny the dynamics between the cast and the hilarity of the situations that transpire.
Whether it’s Carrie’s fashion, Samantha’s unapologetic sexcapades, proper Charlotte and her quest for love, or quirky Miranda and her trails of motherhood, we ladies can somehow relate.
Above all else, I am going to see the movie this weekend because of the CLOTHES! Ohh The FASHION! Better than Devil Wears Prada, I will gush about the amazing clothes I can only aspire to wear. The cast has already been making the rounds in high end eye candy at the London and New York premieres.
Patricia Field, SATC’s award winning stylist and fashion designer, has outfitted the movie stars with six seasons of stunning dresses, boots, stilettos, handbags, hats, coats, and accessories. After all, Elle Magazine did dub SATC,
“the biggest thing in fashion since the invention of pants”.
Not to sound cliche, but I am most excited about getting a closer look at the flamboyant veil and princess style wedding dress by Vivienne Westwood. The New York Post reports that Carrie’s custom made dress costs upwards of $18,000 and her “Extreme Gladiator Platform” shoes by Christian Dior cost $770 plus $100 for added Swarovski crystals. Delish.
Back to Chicago, grab your favorite pair of shoes and plan on drinking some stiff Cosmos at the Victor Hotel for a Premier Party and Fashion Show, this Friday at 7 pm. For $35 you can attend a reception complete with gift bags, Champagne, Martinis (of course), and bites from Fleming’s Steakhouse. Cheers ladies!
