It’s easy to trash chick flicks, like Marisa Meltzer did this week at The Daily Beast. They set false expectations for women. The actresses are capable of more serious work. Blah blah blah blah blah….
But formulaic as the genre is known to be, you’ll still find us front row at the latest “He’s Just Not That Into Your Confessions Of 27 Dresses Bride Wars In The City” release. Chick flicks—gasp!—have redeeming value and we’re not afraid to say it.
After the jump, 10 things we lurve about the lady flicks. Keep reading »
Posh Spice Victoria Beckham may or may not be in the upcoming Sex and the City sequel. Ohmygod. Intel on this rumor remains fairly vague, so we can’t tell you much beyond the whisperings that she’ll be playing a fashion industry figure if she does, indeed, make an appearance. But lest we leave you hanging entirely, let’s engage in some wild speculation as to what various roles she might play. Fun, right? [Elle UK] Keep reading »
Our fave posh fashionista is ready for her closeup…well, as soon as she learns to act. That’s right, rumor has it that Victoria Beckham has enrolled in acting classes in the hopes of landing a coveted cameo in the “Sex in the City” sequel. She allegedly turned down a walk-on role in the first film because she was too busy rehearsing for the Spice Girls reunion tour. Translation: she’s a very bad actress. We know that she is a pro at being her thin and bitchy self (I would be bitchy too if I was that hungry), but can she hold her own with the likes of SJP? [Daily News]
After the jump, a look back at Victoria Beckham’s very slim acting resume. Keep reading »
The Post-It note has a bad rap. After Berger the narcissistic novelist dumped Carrie Bradshaw via Post-It on “Sex In the City,” the sticky yellow paper has been seen as a wussy way to get served. Of all the horrible ways a gal can get dumped, this message was by far the worst! But last night on the “Grey’s Anatomy” season finale, McDreamy and Meredith vindicated the little square. When they ran out of time to get married for real, the two exchanged memos, er, vows, and sealed it with their signatures on a Post-It note. We hope the marriage sticks too! Keep reading »
If you’re a die hard “Sex and the City” fan and would watch Carrie and company no matter how much the plot sucks, then don’t click through. But in case your trying to decide whether to relinquish $10 or more to watch them beat this dead horse, we’ve gathered all of the rumors about the sequel that we can get our hands on. POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT! Keep reading »
Vivienne Westwood, the British fashion designer who created the wedding dress Sarah Jessica Parker wore in the “Sex and the City” movie, hated the film and thinks she can write a better one. The 67-year-old, who walked out of the premiere after ten minutes, has asked SJP to let her write the plot for the sequel. No word yet whether she’ll be taken up on her offer, but we can’t help wondering what Michael Patrick King, writer and director of “Sex and the City,” thinks about it…not to mention stylist Patricia Field, whose designs for the movie Westwood publicly criticized. “I thought ‘Sex And The City’ was supposed to be about cutting-edge fashion,” she said after the film was released, “and there was nothing remotely memorable or interesting about what I saw.”
So what do you guys think? If Vivienne Westwood writes the sequel, will “Sex and the City” be better than ever? Do you even care what the plot is, or are you happy just seeing the girls again and all the great fashion? [Telegraph.co.uk via NYMag] Keep reading »
