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 »
I’m not going to lie, I actually loved the “Sex and The City” movie. It gave fans like me another dose of Carrie and the girls, who we’ve missed so intensely since the show’s finale. (And, of course, I’m holding my breath until the “SATC” sequel.) But now it seems that every popular HBO show is being considered for a movie version. Jeremy Piven already spilled the beans that he’s working on bringing Ari, Vince, and the rest of the “Entourage” crew to the big screen. Now word’s out about a possible “Sopranos” flick. Seriously?!

With the mega success of the first “Sex and the City” movie, everybody in Hollywood probably wants a part in “Sex and the City 2.” But clearly only the chosen ones can have their dream come true. Rumor has it that a very lucky Katie Holmes is one of those selected. She has been approached to play “a really ballsy, high-powered company executive who tangles with Samantha” in the sequel. Holmes is doubtlessly crossing her fingers and toes that Tommy boy gives his stamp of approval. Because she and Victoria Beckham would have so much fun on set. [NY Post] Keep reading »
For some rather obvious reasons, the “Sex and the City” sequel is having trouble getting permission to film in Dubai, a Muslim country. From all that glorified promiscuous sex down to the very name of the show, it’s no wonder that the set and the plot aren’t really meshing. But because we’re morbidly curious about how they’re going to make this even vaguely interesting, we’ve got a few ideas to help them speed up filming. [Daily Express] Keep reading »
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 »
