Love it or hate it (any plenty of people do — think Time Out New York who featured a photo with photoshopped duct tape covering the mouths of the Sex and the City starlettes with the heading “Carrie-free summer”), the highly-anticipated Sex and the City film, with its star Sarah Jessica Parker reportedly making 80-plus costume changes, is sure to be a fashion lover’s dream.
At this week’s New York City premiere Sarah Jessica Parker looked like a sweet, fairytale princess in a metallic Nina Ricci gown that came complete with a beautiful, long train.
At the after-party, which was held at the MoMA, Parker gushed about her love for the dress saying “I am going to get on my hands and knees tomorrow morning and darn every hole before I return it.” Parker added that she’s glad she found the dress before Carrie did. Luckily, Parker did not pair her dress with an ostentatious hat, as she did at the London premier, where she looked like she had a garden (butterflies and all), sprouting from her head.
As for the other gals, Kim Cattrall wore a Vivienne Westwood number, which despite flattering her figure, was-none-too fab with its two, odd lace panels. Her choice of shoes, with their criss-crossing strap around the angle, also left something to be desired.
Kristen Davis looked perfectly stylish in a very Charlotte York-way as she walked down the pink carpet in an accordion and ruffled, custom-made Donna Karan frock.
Often pinned the un-chic one of the foursome, Cynthia Nixon looked beautiful in a flowing Narciso Rodriguez gown (despite a poor choice in shoes — a pair of white, wide-band granny sandals).
Also at the premiere, along with throngs of screaming fans, were cast members Chris Noth, Jennifer Hudson, Jason Lewis as well as plenty of stars (Ashley Olsen, Jerry Seinfeld, Christian Siriano, Bette Midler, Fergie, L’il Kim, Eli Manning) and fashion insiders (Anna Wintour, Andre Leon Talley).
