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.

So apparently Kristin Davis — yes, Charlotte from “Sex and the City” — has a fashion line. And even though she seems pretty busy shooting “SATC 2″ here in NYC, evidently she is planning to show The Kristin Davis Collection, rife as it is with polyester, bright enamel bracelets and imitation patent leather, during New York Fashion Week. Aside from the fact that Charlotte wasn’t even a particularly stylish character on “SATC,” there is also that fact that Kristin herself basically brings to mind a blank fashion slate. Seriously, maybe it’s just further proof that this whole actor-turned-designer thing needs to end. Have you even seen this line? [Style List] Keep reading »
The “Sex and the City” movie sequel has begun filming in New York. Will audiences see the film through gold-colored glasses? [NYC, 9/1/09] Keep reading »
Famous lady author Candace Bushnell has cracked the whip against the term “cougar” in an op-ed published in the upcoming issue of More magazine. So what if the “Sex and the City” writer is 50 and her hubby (a ballet dancer … hot) is 10 years younger? Don’t call the lady a “cougar!” She wonders, rightfully so, why every time a woman breaks through some kind of uncharted territory they receive an annoying label—like when successful business women are called “ball busters” or “ice queens.” (Sorry Anna Wintour, it’s kind of true in your case.)

A few weeks ago, “Mad Men” held an open casting call. Anyone could submit a photo of themselves dressed ’60s-style for a chance to appear on the show. Last week, New Yorkers were invited to try out for a role in “Sex and the City 2.” The roles that needed filling were for “fashion models, celebrity types, upscale socialites, urban club goers, gays and lesbians.” Today, we heard about an open casting call in Holland for “What’s Wrong with Virginia,” a movie starring Ed Harris and Jennifer Connelly. The studio says they’re looking for “real looking people of all shapes and sizes.” [MLive] Keep reading »
