Get the look: Carrie’s SATC 2 style

By Andrea Petrou on May 25th, 2010

With the SATC2 film hitting our screens on Friday (yes we’re counting down too) the fashion frenzy surrounding the girls is huge both off and on screen.

Manolo’s have been dusted out, frocks have been bought and sunglasses are at the ready while fashionistas everywhere try to get that ultimate SATC look.

One character many of us will be trying to copy is Carrie’s. The character carries off just about everything and looks amazing in a pair of jeans or dressed up to the nines. We’ve therefore decided to put together a gallery of her SATC2 looks using stills from the upcoming film but with highstreet alternatives so you can really chanel her look throughout the weekend and right into the summer.

Let us know which outfit you’ll be wearing by leaving your comments below.

By Andrea Petrou on May 18th, 2010

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

SJP SATC2.jpg
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

posterSATC2.jpg

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.

Christian Louboutin isn’t excited about Sex and The City 2

By Andrea Petrou on March 23rd, 2010

SATC 2 Halston.jpg

With the Sex and The City 2 film looming in the not so far distance, we’re getting ready for backstage gossip, promotions and of course lots of pictures of the girls.

However one person doesn’t seem so excited by all the drama surrounding the film and that’s one of our favourite shoe designers Christian Louboutin.

Following a bust up with Manolo Blahnik, the designer associated with the Sex and The City girl’s footwear, producers decided to enlist Louboutin’s creations for the next film.

Any other designer would be over the moon at the thought of this, but Louboutin doesn’t seem to fussed.

He told The Guardian: “I think it’s a good thing because people tell me it is. I don’t have a TV, you see.”

We would love for you to come over to ours and watch the series Mr Louboutin and no need to bring the popcorn, a pair of shoes would be just fine.

Kim Cattrall shows she still has SATC style at the 2010 Olivier awards

By Andrea Petrou on March 22nd, 2010

Kim Olivier.jpg

While her glamourous co-stars were showing off their style in the US, Kim Cattrall flew the flag for Sex and The City style in the UK last night. The forth member of our favourite sitcom turned up at the Olivier 2010 awards in a white short asymmetric body-con frock complete with a very 80s satin ruffle.

We know her look has been criticised by some of the press, namely the Mirror which called the frock a “fashion disaster” and said “Kim [was the] wrong side of 40 for all this frou-frou in 80s white,” but we have to disagree.

As always we think the SATC star looks stunning. And if we can wear a dress like that when we’re 40 we won’t be complaining.

Tell us what you think of Kim’s frock by leaving your comments below.

Sarah Jessica Parker wears Chanel for the Oscars 2010

By Andrea Petrou on March 7th, 2010

Sarah Jessica Parker.jpg

She was the red carpet starlet we were waiting with baited breath for. The one who has made headlines for her perfect fashion choices, and become one of our favourite style icons (although sadly we have to opt for highstreet versions). We’re sure you know exactly who we’re talking about but those who are a bit confused it’s Sarah Jessica Parker.

So did she impress us? Of course she did.

The Sex and the City starlet lit up the red carpet in an on-trend gold floaty (almost 60s) Chanel gown with beading on the shoulders. And she also didn’t disappoint when it came to individuality.

Her frock came complete with what can only be described as a back to front halterneck. Yes that’s right, you read right, the strap went across the front of her neck (think choker style) instead of around the back.

However, Jessica, as much as well loved your dress, we think the make-up was all wrong. Yes it was sixties, yes it tied in with the dress, but we can’t help but think it might have been suited to a night in a Southend nightclub.

Manolo Blahnik talks about his SS2010 collection

By Andrea Petrou on March 1st, 2010

Manolo SS2010.jpg
We couldn’t mention Sex and The City and ignore Manolo Blahnik, especially after news of his latest creations are making a bit of a splash in the fashion world today.

The shoe designer has spoken about his Spring collection, which has been inspired by a range of things including the flats by Audrey Hepburn, some of the stilettos by old Hollywood glamour, some of the adornments by Spanish architecture, and one style even by Einstein’s tongue.

“My favourite style is the Gloton in polkadot,” Blahnik told VOGUE.COM. “This is a great summer shoe, which I have always loved, and variations of it have always featured in my collections…..It brings a smile to my face when I look at it and I hope it will do the same to women when they put the shoe on.”

Mr Blahnik we guarantee we’ll be smiling like Cheshire cats from the minute we touch any of your gorgeous footwear.

Kate Moss to star in a ballet

By Andrea Petrou on March 1st, 2010

Kate Moss bags.jpg

It seems today is a hot day for model announcements and this time it’s Kate Moss’s turn to be in the limelight.

The supermodel has apparently been signed up to star alongside Sex and the City star, Mikhail Baryshnikov in a ballet, rumoured to be named Baryshnimoss.

The ballet will be shown at a fund-raising event and then as a gallery installation. However, it’s not going to be an easy move from heels to points for Kate.

A source told the Daily Mail: “Kate has to be fit, healthy and looking good, so her late nights and heavy partying have to be reduced.

“I know that she is very happy to do that and has talked about wanting to get fit and healthy herself. It will be a movie made for them so she doesn’t have to be a prima ballerina, even though she is having classes.”

Sarah Jessica Parker shows her support at Halston’s AW2010 show in New York

Sarah Jessica Parker, New Creative Director Stops By Halston Show

Sarah Jessica Parker looked every inch the fashionista we’ve all grown to know and love her as she stopped by the New York Halston fashion show yesterday.

The SATC actress and newly appointed creative director of Halston went to show her support for the brand dressed in a shiny metallic Halston 80s style gold satin blouse with a modern waisted belt twist.

She teamed this up with black satin ankle trousers and cute black and beige sandals.

And judging how well she wears the brand’s blouse its no surprise she’s also been the face of Halston since September.

Sarah Jessica Parker spotted in next season’s Chanel

By Andrea Petrou on January 5th, 2010

Sarah J.jpgSarah Jessica Parker walked onto our screens as a style icon, and despite a few mishaps here and there, she’s remained firmly at the top of the fashion ranks. So we were hardly surprised when she was spotted already wearing a two piece outfit from Chanel’s SS2010 collection.

The Sex and the City starlet sported the prairie style crochet two piece during an interview and we’re sure you’ll agree the poppies coupled with the cutesy skirt are a perfect nod to the next season, giving us wonderful images of picnics and of rolling in the hay.

With Chanel setting the trend this season crochet is going to be a big, so we say get those needles and knitting balls out and get practising now.

Happy Birthday Manolo Blahnik. We celebrate with a shoe gallery

By Andrea Petrou on November 27th, 2009

We want to wish Manolo Blahnik a very happy birthday and we know we’re not alone in rejoicing the day that designer was born, well at least when he was old enough to hold a pencil.

Manolo, who is 67 today has done wonders for people’s shoe collections and is creations have been a favourite of the Sex and the City girls with his fabulous footwear appearing on a range of episodes.

One example that sticks in our minds is Season 3, Episode 17 when Carrie got mugged in an alley and the guy took her favourite pair of Manolo strappy sandals. Not the most cheerful but definitely the most poignant.

We remember her words to this day: “Please sir,” she pleaded. “You can take my Fendi baguette, you can take my ring and my watch, but don’t take my Manolo Blahniks.”

So what is it about the designer that makes him stand out?

Well ever since he first started his designing in 1970 Manolo has been solely responsible for the design and prototype of every shoe that bears his name. Working alone without apprentices or assistants, he sketches his shoes, chisels the wooden lasts on which they are moulded and sculpts the heels. He then supervises their production and even sketches the illustrations for his advertising campaigns.

He told his friend Michael Roberts in the 1970s that he achieved all his designs without any formal training as he “didn’t need it.” He said this was because he had “the best taste in the world.”

We couldn’t have put it better ourselves.

Happy Birthday Manolo, we’ll of course be baking you a stilletto shaped cake.

We’ve also put together a mini gallery of some of the designers creations. Click on the picture below to begin the gallery.

Paparazzi bag, as seen on Rihanna is now on sale at Asos

By Andrea Petrou on September 17th, 2009

Paparazzi Asos.jpgA girl can never have too many bags can she?

And it would be wrong not to be able to have one that all the latest celebrities have been sporting, especially if it’s an affordable price right?

ASOS has come up trumps again stocking this ironically named Paparazzi bag, which has been spotted under the arms of celebrities including Kim Catrall, who wore this little beauty on the set of the new Sex and the City film, and Rihanna.

I think this bag is gorgeous and as it’s in a multitude of colours will instantly brighten up our winter wardrobe.

And at a bargain price we don’t really need to justify this purchase to the other half, bank manager or parents.

Log on to ASOS now to bag yours before they get snapped up.
