A very sexy city...

Two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of seeing the much anticipated Sex and the City movie. The verdict? Amazing! So I thought before the hoopla completely dies down (it's already on it's way down) I'd milk the hype for all it's worth.
The one aspect of Sex and the City TV show that was always consistent was the fashion. A trait which was flawlessly carried through to the movie. We all had our favourite outfits. So in honour of the four fabulous ladies of the hour, here are my favourites...

The TV Series

Carrie
Carrie didn't always get it right -- that's for sure. But she was the daring one, of the four. And boy did it pay off.

There will always, always be a special place in my heart for this gorgeous coat that Carrie wore to Miranda's wedding. Possibly my most favourite item of clothing worn by any character throughout the entire series.

Miranda
Miranda was a working girl, which didn't leave much room for fashion exploration. But when Miranda slipped into her 'No Excuses' on that fateful night, a whole new woman emerged.

Samantha
Samantha's skirt-suit dominated wardrobe didn't usually appeal to me, but there were a few instances when she brought out the big guns. A flowing red caftan and a shocking pink pantsuit -- that's hot.

Charlotte
Ah Charlotte...ever the episcopalian princess. Whether she was preppy, sexy or conservative or even getting married, Charlotte never disappointed.

The Movie

I was shocked at how fast the fashion moved in the Sex and the City movie! One wouldn't have time to admire a dress before the scene was yanking you to a new location (with a new dress). Thank god for photography, no?
The fashion from the Sex and the City movie surpasses all others in recent years (except for the Devil Wears Prada). One of the things I was most happy about was the fact that this was really Miranda's time to shine, fashion-wise. As far as I'm concerned, the feisty red-head was the star of the show (even though her character made some really bad decisions in other areas).


So what did you all think of the SATC movie? Love it? Or hate it?
Please don't forget to cast you vote(s) in this month's poll on the right hand side of the page. I'm trying to get an idea of what readers think of my blog, so any feedback would be wonderful.

Catch.

Oh gosh I LOVE SATC. The movie felt a little dragged on, but in the end I got the ending I wanted.

KiKi said...

212 emailed me and they originally asked me to write for them too but I don't really have the time.
And I adore this post, you have picked out some of my favourite looks. In the film I adore Miranda in the Zac Posen Mermaid dress.

You are perfectly right, very sexy. great post dear.

Hugs from Angel.

SKYLA said...

absolutely loved it. my mum found me an amazing Sex and The City book the other day, it made me love it even more. Now i want to but the boxset. Funny you should say that TDWP was the only other film which SATC didn't beat stylewise, the reason would probably be that Patricia Field was the stylist in TDWP too.

Cupcakes and Cashmere said...

even though the movie came out a while ago, the points you made in your post were new and fresh! i agree completely and absolutely adored the film!

A dreamer said...

i think i'm the only person who hasn't watched any of it.I havent even watched the series. "-.-
The fashion does look enticing though.

coco said...

Heya
I have tagged you just to let you know.

Marilyn Hayward said...

I've seen it twice...and I've seen all the episodes probably hundreds of times and am a totally huge and embarrassing fan! As for tips on theatre, if you want to get into it, do anything. Audition namely, and if you don't get in, help out backstage! If you are really serious about getting into a show, taking acting, dance, and voice lessons will pay off.

Kira Fashion said...

riz said...

Sorry i haven't really been around a lot, but i've been stressed out wiht teaching. i agree with what you say here, but i do think ppl were a little harsh with the SATC phenomenon. I might come back and say more later...

Sunniva said...
