No cast showcases beautiful women over 35, each with their own unique stellar signature style than the much missed series Sex and The City. Cashmere Mafia, Lipstick Jungle, and other series have tried to copycat that formula and failed. SATC never disappointed and Sunday nights have never been the same since the series ended. I am going to be among the many people who will be lined up to see the movie. Gossip Girl is decent for my fashionista TV fix , but really, can I really wear those teen inspired designer get ups? Ah no. At least with SATC I can dream. These are my cohorts after all. Now that the fab four are back, so is their unique and enviable style. I will be eating it up.
In celebration of the movie release, in this post I share my take on some of the styles shown in the movie. I know these pictures have been on every fashion blog since last year but I have waited until now to have my say. So without further ado, some of my favorite pics from the movie with short commentary.
First the ubiquitious group shot. I am loving Kim C in that red number –what a siren! And Cynthia looks lovely in her platinum dress–so girly and feminine.
Next up SJP, back as uber fashionista and Vogue columnist Carrie Bradshaw. Here she sporrts her signature gigantic flower accent (this one really huge!) and some rockin gladiator sandals (which can be purchaeed online as we speak BTW). For Carrie it works. For real life, not so much.
I much prefer this green print ensemble. It’s unconventional but it totally works. She is mixing two green prints here but with the edgy black belt, shoes (and I think those are the same Dior sandals from above, no?) and funky ‘Eiffel Tower’ purse it’s a thumbs up for me.
A major scene in the movie is Carrie’s wedding. Here is a shot of her running through the streets of Manhattan in a Vivienne Westwood wedding gown topped with a green feather-festooned veil. There has been much talk about the feather. Honestly I could do without it–Sarah has a long angular face and that feather sticking out of her head simply is not flattering, I don’t care how artistically inspired. The dress, jaw droppingingly beautiful and I love the rose bouquet.
The bridesmaids? Charlotte shows off a dramatic Zac Posen bridesmaid’s dress in black and looks fabulous!
Cynthia Nixon has never looked better—like a fine wine she looks more radiant and beautiful as she ages. Her brilliant blue bridesmaid dress (also a Zac Posen) makes her red hair ‘pop’ even more. She looks amazing.
Sam (Kim C) wears power red for her bridesmaid dress (but of course!), here seen before the shoot before she has time to change into her real shoes. Red is definitely a great hue on her.
I love Sam in primary colors. Only she can rock a yellow jacket with shoulder pads—very 80’s!
Or this white, haute and gold suit ensemble. Love the peplum cut of the jacket with the gold accessories. Sophisticated, fine, and sexy.
Prints and more print! in this photo. So fab! Cynthia’s bold black and white ensemble is smoking hot!! I gotta say she takes the spotlight in this shot. I love how her belt, shoes and handbag match and are neutral, the perfect backdrop for her bold print dress and red hair. Love it I have seen another shot of Carrie in that red dress (it is a bubble with a fitted skirt underneath!) and all I can say is that it is a tad over the top—she is petite after all and there is only so much that can go on in one ensemble. Don’t like it. Charlotte looks pretty.
How did the gals bring it to their after party from the premiere in NY? All glitz and glam. I thought Sarah Jessica looked radiant in these photos–the right color, proportions and silhouette for her frame. Love it. She looks like the star and diva she is.After all, this is her movie! Can’t wait.
