Morning Quickies: Will Elizabeth Olsen Be Young Carrie Bradshaw In “Summer In The City”?

  • Casting rumors are afoot for a film adaption of Summer In The City, Candace Bushnell’s prequel to Sex & The City, where young Carrie Bradshaw meets all her pals in New York City. Here’s the alleged lineup: Elizabeth Olsen as Carrie, Blake Lively as Samantha Jones, Emma Roberts as Miranda Hobbes, and Selena Gomez as Charlotte York. This only gets a “meh” out of me. I’m sorry, but Blake is no Samantha. [Daily Mail UK]
  • Kat Von D got a tattoo of Jesse James’ childhood school photo while they were still engaged. Oopsies. It’s the new “Winona Forever”! [RadarOnline]
  • The “New Year’s Eve” trailer, starring Lea Michele and Sarah Jessica Parker, is out. Nevermind that actual New Year’s Eve is a good five months away. [Celebuzz]

Candace Bushnell Will Milk “Sex And The City” For All It’s Worth

“Summer In The City” is not just a hit song in the ’60s by Lovin’ Spoonful. It’s also author Candace Bushnell‘s second “prequel” young adult novel about Carrie Bradshaw, a.k.a. the way she keeps making mucho clams off “Sex and the City.” (Not that I blame her!) Summer In The City picks up where The Carrie Diaries left off: it’s the ’80s, 17-year-old Carrie Bradshaw has come to New York City to take writing classes the summer before college, and she gets mugged as soon as steps out of Port Authority. (If she was coming from Connecticut, she would have stepped out of Grand Central Station, but whatever.) Carrie calls the one phone number she has on her — her best friend’s cousin — and meets Samantha Jones, her first friend in New York. Later in the book, Carrie meets Miranda Hobbes “in front of Saks, where Miranda is protesting pornography,” according to USA Today. Hey, if we have to revisit the ’80s sex wars about feminism and pornography, better do it with Candace Bushnell than Andrea Dworkin, right? Charlotte York does not seem to make an appearance in Summer In The City — but maybe that will be for a possible third prequel.

Hey, let’s get real: I’m totally going to buy this book and read it in one night while eating a pint of Cherry Garcia. [USA Today] Keep reading »

Best Gift Ever: Hubby Builds “Sex And The City” Dream Closet For His Wife

Wanna know who I hate? The Long Island woman whose husband hired the “Sex and the City” set designers to convert a spare bedroom into the Park Avenue closet Big gives Carrie. Set designers Lydia Marks and Lisa Frantz said an unnamed retired businessman spent $175,000 to makeover a 400-square-foot guestroom into the closet of any Manolo gal’s dreams. The lucky lady’s “SATC” closet now features sliding drawers for accessories, racks organized by designer, and 400 pairs of shoes, according to The New York Post. The set designers said they inventoried each of the woman’s items to make sure there was a space for it in the dream closet — and the result is it’s “very similar” but “bigger” to Carrie’s. Jealous.

Dude Does Excellent Job Of Impersonating Carrie Bradshaw

It’s nearly impossible to imagine anyone other than Sarah Jessica Parker playing Carrie Bradshaw. But if Darren Star ever wants to do an all-male revue of “Sex and the City,” he should call on illustrator Cedric Rivrain. Rivrain cross-dresses like Carrie in a photo spread for Double Magazine and has her poses, pouts, and the delightful way she skips after making a purchase down pat. [Refinery29] Keep reading »

How To Get Carrie Bradshaw’s Bedroom For Less

I can’t help but wonder how Carrie Bradshaw would be living today with all of this talk about recession, stimulus packages and financial woes. Would her apartment be just as fabulous, or would she forgo the updates and spend her hard-earned cash on more shoes?

I’d hope her apartment would stay just as chic as when production designer Jeremy Conway and set decorator Lydia Marks first laid hands on the glamorous interior. So I took it upon myself to recreate the look of her superstar bedroom — on a major budget. I like to call this the “Recession-Friendly Bradshaw Abode.” Read more Keep reading »
