Fashion Crush: River Island Sex and The City dress

By Andrea Petrou on June 1st, 2010

Pink Dress River Island-400.jpg

We went Sex and the City 2 mad last week giving you get the looks for each of the four characters, before ending it all with a SATC2 fashion face off (if you haven’t already voted click here).

However, if we’re honest we don’t really want to stop with all the fun SATC2 fashion just yet so we thought we’d dedicate our fashion crush post to this cute little pink dress.

The short frock from River Island channels Charlotte’s structured SATC 2 style but is bought right on-trend with an asymmetric styling twist.

Team up with a blingtastic ring and black patent skyscraper heels for that perfect Charlotte look. And the £40 price tag isn’t bad either.

Friday fashion fracas: Which SATC2 character wins your style vote?

By Andrea Petrou on May 28th, 2010

Over the week we’ve been bringing you each of the Sex and the City 2 characters styles where we have used clips from the film to match up some highstreet alternatives. However, one thing we haven’t done, is get you to tell us who your best dressed SATC2 character is.

Is it Carrie who seems to have an effortless stylish wardrobe full of layered, lose and fitted puff dresses and fears no fashion trend or is it Charlotte who may not be as edgy as the other three but works the structured dress and trouser look amazingly well.

Or perhaps it’s the daring, carefree and downright sexy look Samantha always seems to carry off, whether it’s a tight dress or trouser we think she always looks hot. And then there’s Miranda, who really shone in the SATC2 movie elegantly working her trademark shift dresses and turning these from boring office wear to fashion must have.

Have a look at our mini gallery and then vote and leave your comments below to let us know who wins the Sex and the City 2 style wars.

By Andrea Petrou on May 24th, 2010

Ladies the wait for the SATC2 film is nearly upon us and we know you’ll be tottering down to a cinema on Friday to watch the girls do what they do best: Talk sex, go shopping and have those everyday dilemas many of us winge to our friends about.

Over the past few months we’ve given you trailers, sneak previews of film stills and even some of the fashion the girls will be wearing.

However, watching trailers just got that bit better. We’ve been lucky enough to get our hands on an official interactive iTrailer, which not only lets you watch plots from the latest film but also gives some interesting facts on the girls and of course their wardrobes. All you have to do is watch and clicking on the video to unlock interesting facts such as who designed the dresses in the scene or the date of Big and Carrie’s anniversary.

Enjoy ladies.

Sex and the City 2.jpg

Just when we thought we had enough websites to help us wile away our days another one pops up. But this isn’t just any old site, it’s the queen shopping sites in the shape of Carrie Bradshaw’s closet.

Yes, you read right Sex and The City fans, you can virtually browse the entire contents of Carrie’s wardrobe from your desk.

All you have to do is log onto the official Sex and the City 2 website where you’ll find an image of Carrie’s walk-through closet in her single girl’s New York apartment.

There you’ll find rails and shelves full of her SATC2 outfits and if you scroll across them you’ll not only get info about where they are from but also cheaper alternatives.

Hmmm we have a feeling we might not be doing any work for a very long time…just don’t tell our bosses.

Sex and The City cast told to keep quiet about SATC2 film

By Andrea Petrou on April 30th, 2010

We’ve all spilled the beans on something we shouldn’t have but imagine having to pay a financial sum for saying things you shouldn’t. Well that’s what’s happening to the girls in Sex and the City.

According to the Daily Mail the crew have had to sign a confidentiality agreement. And anyone found spilling the beans on the long awaited SATC2 film will have to pay up to £1.6 million if details are leaked.

The contractual agreement has apparently been drawn up as it is believed a large part of the first films great success was due the mystery of the storyline, which told what had happened to the main characters since the end of the television series in 2004.

Kim Cattrall has already come close to paying out after being photographed holding the script, with some dialogue visible. “I thought: “You have got to be kidding! This isn’t state secrets, it’s the f****** script for a movie!” It’s crazy. You really have to be careful because I’ve signed my life away to say I won’t tell. It gets to the point where you’re terrified to carry your script around in case someone catches a glimpse of it,” said Cattrall.

Sometimes silence really is golden.

Debenhams named as official retail partner for Sex and the City 2

By Andrea Petrou on April 28th, 2010


With the wait for the Sex and the City 2 film nearly over many companies are beginning to make a big song and dance about it introducing jewellery, clothing and other accessories to tie in with the launch.

Debenhams however has gone one step further. The retail store has announced that it is the official retail partner of the film.

To celebrate, the highstreet store put together a fashion shoot in the Amanjeena Hotel, in Marakesh, Morocco, where the actual movie was shot. Hundreds of girls were interviewed to find four “doubles” for Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte and were dressed in the style of each character from Debenhams designers including Julien Macdonald and Matthew Williamson.

And it’s good news for SATC fashion girls because all the clothing will be available to buy in time for the film’s debut on 28 May.

But the good news doesn’t end there because four lucky customers will also win a trip to New York in conjunction with SATC 2. The prize includes flights and hotel accommodation for four people (one winner and three friends) and $1000 spending money.

Leona Lewis to sing on SATC 2 soundtrack

By Andrea Petrou on April 13th, 2010


We know you’re as excited as we are about Sex And The City 2, and we’re even more jittery now that we’ve seen the second official trailer (click here if you missed it).

So imagine our glee when we found out Leona Lewis would be playing a part in the SATC craze. The brit singer and X-Factor winner is rumoured to be singing on the sequel’s main theme song alongside Jennifer Hudson, who Carrie’s assistant Louise in the first film.

“They each have incredible voices and will appeal to both the UK and the US.
“It’s perfect for the next SATC film.”

Fab fashion, men and now good music, is there nothing that this film has missed?

ShinyStyle watch: Second official Sex and The City 2 trailer

By Andrea Petrou on April 9th, 2010

A few months ago we bought you the first official trailer for the Sex and the City 2 film, and we know all you true Sex and The City fans out there got goose-bumps.

Well brace yourselves ladies because we’ve got ANOTHER trailer for you.

And this one’s just as good, if dare we say, better than the first, giving us a real insight into what we can expect from the film. And we’re not just talking about the stunning range of clothes.

Judging by what we’ve just seen, it seems Samantha will be giving us plenty of those man hungry moments, while Charlotte continues to play (not so happy?) families.

We won’t give too much more away as we’ll let you watch it for yourselves below.

Let us know if you’re as excited as we are.

Sarah Jessica Parker given a designer role at Halston

By Andrea Petrou on January 14th, 2010

SATC 2 Halston.jpg

Sarah Jessica Parker has been signed up to help design Halston’s Heritage range.

According to WWD The Sex and The City actress will be the brand’s creative director where she will not only oversee the creative side of things, but also have a share of the profits.

We’re not overly familiar with the brand here at ShinyStyle and we think that’s because since it’s relaunch in 2008, many celebrities and magazines have overlooked it. However, Sarah Jessica Parker is already doing her bit to get Halston’s name out there.

She recently wore a £70 little white dress from the fashion house in the advertising posters for Sex and the City 2.

We can’t wait to see what this brand comes up with in 2010, and we’re pretty sure with SJP leading the way, we won’t see any of the disasters Lindsay Lohan demonstrated in her role as Creative Director for Ungaro.

Dogeared launches Sex and The City 2 necklaces

By Andrea Petrou on January 7th, 2010

Sex and the City Necklaces.jpg

The frenzy surrounding Sex and The City 2 has well and truly begun. Earlier this week we published the official trailer, which made us all giddy with excitement, and it seems other companies are also jumping on the bandwagon.

One such brand is American company Dogeared, which has just launched a range of cute necklaces inspired by Carrie’s and the rest of the characters’ most memorable quotes.

These include charms such as a diamond, stiletto, and the Eiffel tower, on gold or silver chains, which come attached to cards featuring quotes like “I’ve been dating since I was 15. I’m exhausted! Where is he?” and “I’m not afraid of heights.”

Although they might not bag you that Mr Big, We think these kitsch pieces of jewellery, which come wrapped in a black and pink satin pouch, are a perfect gift for a BFF or a treat for yourself.

They will be available later on this year from HBO and Dogeared.

By Andrea Petrou on January 5th, 2010

Take a deep breath ladies, because we’ve got a brand new trailer for this years Sex and The City 2 film.

The clip gives us a tiny glimpse of all the fashion and excitement we’ve been waiting for and we love Sarah Jessica Parker’s white dress in the first scene, which we hope gives a hint of all the fashion delights to come in the film.

We’re already jumping around in our seats.

The film presented by New Line Cinema, in association with Home Box Office, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures will be released worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures in 2010.

New Sex and the City 2 poster revealed

By lotte on December 11th, 2009

Sex and the City 2.jpg Anticipation is steadily building for the next Sex and the City film, and the release of the first official poster means it’s only going to intensify. Wearing a white dress and weird mirrored aviator sunglasses, Carrie is looking less fashionista, more robot. Add to this the futuristic background, and I began to wonder… Is the new film set in the distant future, featuring android versions of the sassy, cocktail-drinking ladies we’ve come to know so well?

As with the first movie, we’ll be watching it for the outfits, but we think nothing will match some of Carrie’s looks in the first few series – dig out those dvds if you need a reminder. And we’re sure that Sarah Jessica Parker gets to wear more exciting outfits in the film than what she’s wearing here. White jersey is a lot less interesting than fur coats, floral prom dresses and Eiffel Tower bags.

If you’re in the mood for some SATC nostalgia, check out HBO’s galleries of the girls’ best outfits from all 6 series.
