She’s already launched Lovely and Covet, but Sarah Jessica Parker isn’t ready to end her perfume rampage. Along with the newest “Sex and the City” movie, Carrie’s real life fashion maven created SJP, NYC. Because when you already have two perfumes, why not make a trio, right?
The newest scent will launch in February and is capitalizing on the obsession many have with Carrie Bradshaw and her bold fashion sense. “A large part of the inspiration was what I now understand to be people’s impressions of seeing Carrie Bradshaw walk down the street and what feelings that evokes for her and for them — a real sense of freedom and possibilities, a love for the city around her and, of course, fashion,” she said of the new perfume.

Either way, the “SATC”-obsessed are sure to attach their heel addiction to the iconic Louboutins just as fast as they did to those Manolos.

We’ve always been curious about what it’s like to be in a movie, even if you’re only in the background. In an essay on The Daily Beast, writer Rebecca Dana shares what it was like to spend a day as an extra in the “Sex and the City” sequel. Cast as a lipstick lesbian because of her pixie cut, Dana was told to dress as extravagantly and label-tastic as possible. A bus picked her up in New York City at 6:30 a.m. and took her and other extras to Long Island. Dana spent most of the day in a holding pen with other extras, or holding hands with her “lesbian lover” in the background of a shot. She did, however, pick up a few clues about the upcoming movie.
