“Nothing can really describe what it’s like to have two new little girls. It’s been very different than when James arrived, since our family expanded in an untraditional way. We didn’t plan on having two, but were doubly blessed, and it’s been just wonderful. [Tabitha and Marion] just turned four months old today! One would prefer to be held 24 hours a day, and the other is already suffering from type A issues. It’s been amazing but complicated because of my current work schedule, which I have enormous regrets about. [...] It is the eternal conflict of every working woman, and I am not complaining, because I’ve done this to myself. And I have a wonderful, wonderful nanny who allows me to be a working person. The great challenge for me is to be all things to all people; I want to be a great mother, and I want to feel good when I’m at work. But it is hard.”

I like “Sex and the City” as much as any other girl, but with these new holiday ornaments, I think some people’s obsession might have gone a little bit too far. They retail for $12.99 and HBO’s created an entire assortment — including a martini, mini purse, Eiffel Tower, and high heel. Over the top much? [HBO] Keep reading »
Hot off the presses! Check out the just-released cover of the Sex and the City prequel: Candace Bushnell‘s The Carrie Diaries. The book, which takes place during Carrie Bradshaw’s high school years, won’t be released until April 27, 2010, and “Sex and the City 2″ isn’t slated for release until May 28, 2010, but it’s never too early to pre-order, is it? This time around, the story focuses on Carrie’s first love (Mr. Tiny?), her early relationships, and how she became a writer. The book is the first of two that chronicle Carrie’s early years. Surely this means there’ll be more “Sex and the City” movies for years to come. [People] Keep reading »
Single adulthood used to be a brief moment between adolescence and marriage. Today, according to one study, the median age of a first marriage is rising for both men and women, and singles make up 41 percent of American adults 18 and older. Keep reading »
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. But, after her last two classy fragrance bottles, the newest one is a little lacking in elegant design, no? How do you feel about the leopard and zebra print paired with bright blue? Would Carrie approve? [WWD] Keep reading »
We get it. The reason to take a hit show like “Sex and The City” and make not one, but two feature films based on it are: a.) to continue the storyline for fans, and b.) to create a gloriously entertaining fashion parade on the big screen. (At least, that seems to be the motivation, besides making money and stuff, natch.) But the more clothes we see from the set, the more afraid we are. Keep reading »
Watch out Manolo Blahnik. You’ve been put back on the shelf.
While Carrie Bradshaw originally gave the heels their fame with her shoe obsession and fashion sense, it seem she’s moved on. In the upcoming “Sex and the City” sequel, Sarah Jessica Parker’s character has given up fawning over Manolos in favor of red soles from Christian Louboutin. Is this the result of too much complaining over unwanted fame from Mr. Blahnik? 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. Click through if you don’t mind possible spoilers! Keep reading »
