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.

Ready For Round 2 Of “SATC” Fashion?

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?

Here’s Your Chance to Steal Carrie Bradshaw’s Wardrobe

Everyone knows that Sarah Jessica Parker’s wardrobe for her character Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City is beyond enviable. From the high heels to the brilliant accessories to the odd little pieces that stylist Patricia Field works in, each and every item is a gem.

But now, with the upcoming release of the second film, a boutique in London called Start London, is giving away ONE Halston Heritage dress. If you’ve seen the trailer, its the light pink floaty number that Carrie wears along with a silver turban. Here’s the problem – you’ll have to be the perfect size—a 10—for the dress to fit, but we say, good luck to all! [Grazia] Keep reading »
