“Sex and the City” first appeared on TV in 1998, but the volume of conversations we’ve had about the show make it seem like it’s been on for decades. Include the movies — like “Sex and the City 2,” which appears in theaters on May 27 — and it feels like centuries.
Or maybe it just seems that way because we’ve had the same tired old conversations for years now. Are you a Carrie, Miranda, Samantha or Charlotte? Is it good for women? Is it bad for women? Someone bludgeon me with a stiletto, please!
After the jump, the 10 conversations about “Sex and the City” you are henceforth officially banned from having. (And yes, this decree is very strict and highly enforceable!) Keep reading »
“Anything from thongs to vibrators. That’s the least of it: fellatio, how to control the taste of a man’s semen. … I’m at a fish counter and this guy comes up to me and says, ‘You know, I just have to thank you. Thank you so much. There’s no way I could have really broached the subject about sex with my daughter without your help. Thank you.’ I’m at the fish counter with the father of a 13-year-old girl. I mean, at the same time it’s wonderful, but I’m like, ‘Just give me the clams and let me get the f**k out of here.’”

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 »

So, you know how the cast of the “Sex and the City” movie sequel is always Photoshopped to hell and back in the movie posters, especially the most recent one
? Well, Kristin Davis doesn’t seem to be a fan either. The New York Post
asked her about the poster at last night’s Met Ball — above is what she had to say. [Gawker TV

Carrie Bradshaw and the gang have come a loooong way since the first season of “Sex and the City” premiered on HBO in 1998. That first episode — with its interstitial voiceovers from minor characters, which thankfully didn’t make it out of the first season, unfortunate hair, sometimes wacky outfits and Carrie chain-smoking in her studio apartment — is what made America fall in love with Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda. These were four single women living, working, loving and partying in the playground of New York City. We could have been like them. They were a version of us with cooler jobs and a seemingly endless capacity to wear four inch heels, but we could aspiringly relate to them. But now, things are different. Read more … Keep reading »
Check out the poster for “Sex and the City 2,” which hits theaters May 27. Carrie Bradshaw is truly a marvel. Not only is she able to walk across sand in heels without sinking (or rolling an ankle), but she doesn’t seem to sweat in the Abu Dhabi heat either! Keep reading »
Even if you feel like “Sex and the City
” should call it quits already, the people behind the show and movies sure know how to cause a spectacle. We saw the teaser
for the second movie back in December, but it didn’t reveal much in the way of plot lines and we were like, whatever
. But now that we’ve seen bits of what’s going to happen — Charlotte’s tired of her kids! Aidan returns! Penelope Cruz does something! Naughty things happen in the desert! — we’re sort of excited. Most likely, the movie will be cheesy (Miley Cyrus
makes an appearance, after all), but we’ll round up our pals and make a trip to the theater because it’ll be an event — one that will be preceded by cocktails, of course. Keep reading »
When the first “Sex and the City” movie was released, the midnight showing garnered an interesting mix: 20-something girls with their friends alongside teeny-boppers dressed in their best prom outfits attempting to pull off the Carrie Bradshaw style. So if this is any indication of the audience we can expect to find for the sequel, then get ready for more imitations of the characters’ fashion choices and fake Cosmos in the theaters. But this time, taking the place of tutu dresses will be Carrie’s vacation-inspired outfits from Pat Field, including one very interesting, standout turban. So, in preparation, it’s time to get to practicing your turban-tying skills. [For some us who couldn't be less excited about "SATC2," it's simply handy to know how to tie a mean turban. -- Editor] Read on for step-by-step instructions. Keep reading »
Have you seen the “Carried On” posters hanging around your local movie theaters? The impending May release date means the “Sex and the City” ladies are going to be all over the place promoting their sequel. Cue the fashion choices, accessories to swoon over, and shoes that are sure to be unaffordable. And though May still feels far away, Carrie, Charlotte, and Samantha (er, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon) have already begun the press rounds. Before everyone gets too catty, Kim Cattrall is MIA because she’s currently starring in a play called “Private Lives.” Now, on to the fashion: Kristin chose a floral Oscar de la Renta dress, while Cynthia wore a modest dress below the knee, but it was Sarah Jessica’s yellow Lanvin number that won in our eyes. Carrie always was the most fashionable of the crew. What do you think?
