Rumors of a third “Sex and the City” movie are in the works, and I’ll be honest, I’m a little excited. I didn’t love the second movie (did anyone?), but I love the series. Like so many viewers, I feel like I know those characters and that they just get me — minus the show’s leading lady.
Carrie Bradshaw is a nightmare. She’s the worst example of a female role model I could ever think of, and an awful representation of single life in general. My fury at Carrie has gotten so bad that I find myself shouting at my screen when watching the show. I wish, more than anything, that I could shake her by the shoulders and ask how on earth she could be so clueless. Here are some things I wish I could scream at Carrie (besides “BE NICE TO AIDAN!” because that would fill hundreds of pages all on its own) — with accompanying GIFs of Carrie being annoying, naturally.

Die-hard “Sex and the City” fans have been trying to figure out the secret to Patricia Field‘s costume madness. How does she make a hodgepodge of items mesh into one cohesive chic look? Well, it seems Pat looks to her own experiences and fantasies for inspiration. Here’s what she told Racked regarding the camel scene in “Sex and the City 2“… Keep reading »
Which is worse: wearing the same outfit as another person at the same event or wearing the same outfit to two completely different events and getting photographed at both? I say the former is most embarrassing because you’ll be known as the woman who was dressed exactly like that other woman for the whole event. But Becki Newton knows what the latter is like because she wore the same outfit (right down to the clutch and shoes) to the NBC upfronts on May 17 and the “Sex and the City 2” premiere on May 24. That’s only a week apart, but who cares? Becki looked super cute, stylish, and fun in her peach-colored blazer and satin shorts. I especially love the jade green addition, thanks to her clutch, to her two-tone outfit. Maybe Becki is just like the rest of us. Keep reading »
If you didn’t get invited to the premiere of “Sex and the City 2” (don’t feel bad, we didn’t either), you can still feel like you’re there. Right now, the video above should be livestreaming what’s going down on the red carpet. So, stay tuned to hear what Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Kim Cattrall, and Kristin Davis have to say about what they’re wearing, and, you know, life and stuff. Keep reading »
As the stylist for “Sex and the City,” Patricia Field has the chance to share her eclectic style with the world through Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte, and Samantha, creating trends and obsessions for women all over the world. A perfect example is the infatuation with nameplate necklaces, which, pre-Carrie, were seen as slightly trashy, but quickly became a fan favorite when SJP wore them. With the upcoming sequel, the fashion stylist has been hard at work, mixing variations of Halston creations in with a few of her own current favorites. Recently, Pat shared her thoughts about which trends “Sex and the City 2″ would inspire, one of which is a four-leaf clover necklace that Carrie wears in a few scenes. Pat Field is capitalizing off the trend she’s sure to create and designed a clover necklace for her Payless line. So, if you decide not to purchase the $56 to $72 clover necklace from Pat’s store, you can have a charm like Carrie’s for a more reasonable $12.99 from Payless. [PR Newswire] Keep reading »

Some film stills from the “Sex and the City” sequel are out, and we’ve been staring at the gang’s style to figure out how we feel about it. Is it realistic? Aspirational? Bold? Completely rooted in fantasy but totally entertaining? And which looks will influence fashion trends (because that’s inevitable)?
For the new look of 40-something Carrie, costume designer Patricia Field and Sarah Jessica Parker wanted to portray a different side of the fashion-fanatic character. Director Michael Patrick King explained that the first images released of Carrie (remember that glam white dress with the sunglasses?) were intentionally styled: “This one is about evolution. They — Pat and Sarah Jessica — wanted to pick a simple, clean, American line. It’s a vintage piece of Halston, which is fancied up with those crazy gold sunglasses. They wanted to show Carrie’s grown-upness. All the girls have hands-on feelings about their clothes.”
When looking at their wardrobes, we have a hard time deciding whether the “SATC” characters represent something fun and inspirational for the image of 40-somethings (will grown women follow their lead?), or if they remain in the realm of laughable entertainment and fiction. Take a look at a few more images from “Sex and the City 2″ after the jump, and tell us what you think! [LA Times via Racked] Keep reading »
