Sex and the City, the Fashion Movie is here!

Sex and the City | SATC | Movie | Carrie Bradshaw | Sarah Jessica Parker | SJP Will Carrie Bradshaw and Mr Big finally tie the knot?

Will Cinderella and the Prince live happily ever after?

Well it's time to find out! Yippeeee!!! After its premiere in London on Monday May 12, 2008, the movie that we've all been waiting for, the movie based on the popular HBO Sex and the City series has finally arrived with special screenings at select AMC Theatres and then followed in theatres nationwide on Friday, May 30. You can even get 'Sex' at midnight with special Thursday night screenings in selected theatres!

Sex and the City, The Buzz!

However, even before the film rolls, with the girls appearing on shows like the Today Show, the Early Show and Regis & Kelly, and of course with additional film and premiere coverage on entertainment shows including E! News, Extra, Access Hollywood, E.T., The Insider, and not to mention the multiple commercials on TV and the tidbits plastered in magazines and general press, Sex and the City (SATC) is at fever pitch!! Sex & the City fashion has been the buzz for fashionistas everywhere!!

Sex and the City, The Fashion!

I'm sure that you will be like me and just can't wait to see the movie incarnation of HBO's Sex and the City. I certainly can't!! I can't wait to see how the now 40-something Carrie Bradshaw (played by Sarah Jessica Parker), successful author and everyone's favorite fashion icon-next-door, and her three gal pals, Samantha Jones (played by Kim Cattrall), Charlotte York Goldenblatt (played by Kristin Davis) and Miranda Hobbes (played by Cynthia Nixon), have matured in their attitude to sex, love and relationships and just as importantly, in how they have matured in the fashions that they love and wear.

Sex and the City, The Movie!

I know from Sex and the City, It's a Fashion Show! that "the fashion is really different. Everything is more expensive, more beautiful, the shoes, the jewelry..." and that the "fashion comes from Paris, it Comes from Italy, it comes from New York, it comes from everywhere" and that we can expect some maturity as Sarah Jessica Parker (SJP) herself has said that "taste has changed, palette has changed and that's what happens when you grow up."

However, with all the buzz and after watching the 30-somethings in re-runs of the HBO Sex and the City series for days now, I being a mega SATC fan, can't wait to see the feature-length movie. Yes I want to sit there for 2 hours and 15 minutes and watch the ultra chic and the fabulous and sophisticated Sex and the City style! I want to see the girls strut their stuff again :)

Sex and the City, the Designer Clothing, Designer Shoes, Designer Handbags and Designer Jewelry!

Yes there will be lots of love and sex, and Mr BIG of course, but I want to see the girls in the latest designer clothing and designer shoes as well as the hottest designer handbags and wearing the to-die-for designer jewelry. SATC the movie will no doubt be like going to fabulous designer clothing, designer shoes, designer handbags and designer jewelry fashion shows all lumped into one, 2 hour and 15 minute fashion show. I can't wait.

Sex and the City, the Designer Jewelry and Designer Handbags!

Sex and the City | SATC | Movie | Carrie Bradshaw | Sarah Jessica Parker | SJP | Wedding Scene Now I know that Fred Leighton and Nancy Gonzalez, both played a major role in accessorizing the leading ladies for the film.

Sex and the City, Designer Jewelry

You will see the bling when Carrie Bradshaw lights up the Big Screen in her Fred Leighton designer jewelry. Fred Leighton played a starring role along side Sarah Jessica Parker in the Sex and the City movie. And it's no surprise given Fred Leighton's celebrated uniqueness and its unparalleled one of a kind jewels.

SATC's stylist and designer, Patricia Field, chose unique unrivaled Fred Leighton pieces to wardrobe Sarah Jessica Parker in several scenes of the movie. In multiple scenes throughout the movie a pair of Fred Leighton antique diamond pendant earrings are a staple in Carrie Bradshaw's jewelry repertoire. In the Carrie Bradshaw Wedding Scene, she wears a stunning pair of Fred Leighton, 19th Century Diamond and Natural Pearl Cluster Earrings and a Fred Leighton, 19th Century Diamond Feather Brooch. Now aren't these stunning Fred Leighton designer jewelry pieces to die for :O

Now if you want to similarly impress then Fred Leighton designer jewelry pieces and collections are available at the Fred Leighton store in New York City and the Fred Leighton Store in Las Vegas. By the way, Carrie's wedding dress was designed by fashion designer Vivienne Westwood; now isn't it gorgeous!!!

Sex and the City, Designer Handbags

Synonymous with style and renowned for being the ultimate in luxurious croc handbags, Nancy Gonzalez was also on the top of Patricia Field's list for accessories for the Sex and the City movie.

Sex and the City | SATC | Movie | Samantha Jones | Kim Cattrall | Walking the pooch

Both Samantha and Miranda are seen carrying Nancy Gonzalez designer handbags and crazy as it might seem, Samantha’s little pooch is also accessorized in matching Nancy Gonzalez accessories. This lucky dog is seen wearing a Nancy Gonzalez one of a kind gold croc collar and leash designed to match Samantha’s Nancy Gonzalez gold tote designer handbag (see detail picture below left) and apparently made especially by the designer for the movie. I'm not at all sure about coordinating your outfit with your dog but wouldn't you just love to get your hands on that little pooch ;)

Nancy Gonzalez | Gold Tote | Designer | Handbag | Sex and the City | SATC | Movie | Samantha Jones Nancy Gonzalez | Exotic Skin Tote | Designer | Handbag | Sex and the City | SATC | Movie | Miranda Hobbes

In the scene where we see her walking down the street with the Sex and the City girls (picture below), Miranda is holding a Nancy Gonzalez exotic skin tote (see detail picture above right).

Sex and the City | SATC | Movie | Girls | Charlotte York | Carrie Bradshaw | Miranda Hobbes | Samantha Jones | Walking down the street

If you want the look then the Nancy Gonzalez exotic skins handbag and accessory collection is available at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and at fine specialty stores worldwide.

Sex and the City, the Ultimate Chick Flick!

Well will this movie incarnation of the HBO Sex and the City series be the Ultimate chick flick? Not long now to tell but it sure is looking like it will be. I just can't wait to see this chick-flick. Can't wait to see the designer clothes (Vera Wang, Vivienne Westwood, Christian Dior and Oscar De La Renta), the designer handbags (Birkin, Chanel. and Louis Vuittons), the designer shoes and all the bling, the designer jewelry :)

Jonathan Saunders Fashion for Target

Well it's official, after months of speculation and following in the footsteps of Erin Featherston, Alice Temperley, Proenza Schouler, Luella Bartley and Loeffler Randall, the next fashion designer to create a collection for Target will be the Scottish designer, Jonathan Saunders. He will produce a limited-edition collection for Target’s GO International range, which spotlights new names in the fashion industry.
Known for his refreshingly inventive and original approach to design and use of color, Jonathan Saunders is no stranger to cheap chic: His latest fashion collection for the British high street retailer Topshop features jersey dresses printed with bold, primary color shapes.
Jonathan Saunders
I first came across Jonathan Saunders' work during London Fashion Week Fall, 2007 and loved the combo of dashing colors with black statement on both long gowns and sophisticated short dresses. More recently, a number of classy Jonathan Saunders pieces caught my eye in the Jonathan Saunders Fall 2008 Fashion Show (see pictures above). From checking the current Jonathan Saunders collection and prices at Net-A-Porter, it will certainly be interesting to see the Jonathan Saunders collection of women's fashion for Target when it is released in early October.

Sex and the City, It's a Fashion Show!

The world premiere of the much anticipated movie, Sex And The City (SATC) takes place in London tonight. Personally I think that New York should have had the first screening, I mean that's where the HBO series was set and shot, that's where the 30-somethings Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha strutted their stuff!

Sex and the City | SATC | Movie

Regardless, as much as Sex and the City is about columnist Carrie Bradshaw, her three gal pals, and their lustful urban quest for good sex, love and fab clothes, being set in New York City, fashion has always been a major part of the story. But now some four years on what can we expect when it comes to the fashion?

Also, will it simply continue on from where the series left off or will the now 40-somethings have matured and matured in the fashions that they wear. Will we see more of the breaking of the rules, the unexpected and outrageous, or will we see a more mature collection of fashion. The following video by BlackTree Media might shed some light on these questions.


Well there are some clues there. It is said that "the fashion is really different. Everything is more expensive, more beautiful, the shoes, the jewelry..." and when talking about the show's stylist and costume designer Patricia Field, Sarah Jessica Parker says that "she's really good at telling the story with clothes and she really knows these women in the city." And yes we can expect some maturity as Sarah Jessica Parker later says that "taste has changed, palette has changed and that's what happens when you grow up."

Pat Field herself says that the "fashion comes from Paris, it Comes from Italy, it Comes from New York, it comes from everywhere" and when talking about the costumes Kristin Davis (Charlotte) says that "there were just tables of bags, like every new bag that you haven't even seen in the stores yet and then there were tables of shoes, and I mean it was just like Mecca."

So from this we can expect some new ideas but I'm sure that we'll see the latest in designer clothing, shoes and designer handbags. Yes there will be lots of love and sex, but just as importantly, the feature-length Sex And The City movie will be like going to a fabulous fashion show. I can't wait.

The Money's in the Prada Handbag!

Prada | Designer | Fashion | Buckskin | Handbag

Well did you manage to purchase any of the unique Prada prototypes at the Prada Spring/Summer Women's 2008 Fashion Auction which ended on Tuesday? The Prada handbags, skirts, pants and boots were certainly one-of-a-kinds in terms of design, style and colors. Here's a brief roundup on this auction.

Prada Designer Pants

The first items on the bidding block were three pairs of couture pants. The low-rise bell-bottom Cyclamen Pants, as shown in the pictures directly below, are made off silk fabric as used extensively in haute couture collections of the fifties. These very unique pants, in cyclamen

3 Prada Cyclamen Couture Pants 3 Prada Cyclamen Couture Pants B

color and shell print are printed with a 20-color flat screen process and appeared with different print in the last Prada fashion show for the Spring/Summer 2008 women's collection. The one-of-a-kind Prada designer pants were purchased during the auction for 2000 Euros. There can be no doubt that these Prada pants in hot cyclamen color are super chic but I just can't get my head around the large bell-bottoms.

2 Prada Sunny Yellow PantsNext in the bidding we saw the low-rise bell-bottom Sunny Yellow Pants as shown in the picture on the left. These pants are made of silk gazar, generated by a 20-color flat screen printing process which ensures a richer, more accurate result compared to the normal 10-color printing technique. Screens with the designs are used to apply the inks on the cloth. A specific screen is used to print each separate portion of color and given that this involved a 20-color flat screen printing process, you can easily see that the end result is spectacular.

Although very similar in style to the Prada Cyclamen Couture Pants, due to the motif print and its sunny yellow color, the Sunny Yellow Pants are certainly unique and given that it attracted a highest bid of 2100 Euros, one can imagine that they will be worn proudly. Once again however, because of the large bell-bottom they are not my style and I'm not so hot on the yellow color, well not in pants anyway!

1 Prada Orange Pants The third item in the first group of prototypes auctioned was the Orange Pants shown in the picture here on the right. Once again, like the two prior items, this prototype is a unique low-rise bell-bottom pants created exclusively for this auction.

The silk gazar fabric is printed through the same 20-color process that guarantees a more accurate result compared to the normal 10-color printing technique. This fashion piece is absolutely unique due to its combination of color and print, as for the cyclamen and sunny yellow ones. The highest bid for these was 2000 Euros. Again because of the bell-bottom design, this one-of-a-kind fashion piece, is not my style.

Prada Handbag and Designer Boots

A Plum Buckskin Prada handbag and two pairs of Prada designer boots made up the second group of items which were auctioned off in the week ending April 29, 2008. Shown in the pictures below, I described each of these items in my Exclusive Prada Designer Auction post of Thursday April 24, 2008.

Prada | Designer | Fashion | Buckskin | Handbag Prada | Designer | Plum Buckskin | Boot Prada | Designer | Antique Rose | Boot

The Plum Buckskin Prada Handbag went for 4000 Euros, the Plum Buckskin Boot for 1450 Euros (pictured in the center directly above), and the Antique Rose Buckskin Boot (pictured above on the far right) went for 1300 Euros. I have to say that out of all items, the Plum Buckskin Prada Handbag was my favorite piece in the auction but more on this later.

Prada Designer Skirts

You've got the pants, the boots and the Prada handbag so now what about a unique Prada skirt or two to match? Well that's what the final part of the Prada Spring/Summer Women's 2008 Fashion Auction was all about, skirts!

Prada | Sunny Yellow Silk Gazar | Designer | Fashion | Skirt The first of these is the Ankle-length, Sunny Yellow Skirt shown here on the left. This skirt is made of silk gazar printed with a shell design as used in the last Prada Spring/Summer 2008 Women's Fashion Show. Gazar is a heavyweight organza that was used extensively in haute couture collections of the fifties. This skirt was purchased at auction for 1500 Euros. Now I didn't like the low-rise bell-bottom Sunny Yellow Pants described above but I do like this skirt, and even in yellow!

The second skirt is the shell design, Cyclamen Silk Gazar Skirt shown immediately below on the left. This skirt is also inspired to the 2008 Prada Spring/Summer Women's Collection. The luxurious print portrays a world full of carnivorous flowers, dragons, hybrid creatures, and mysterious fairies. As the previous, this prototype is absolutely unique as it is the only version in this color in existence. The Cyclamen Silk Gazar Skirt was purchased at auction for 1300 Euros.

Prada | Designer | Fashion | Cyclamen Silk Gazar | Skirt Prada | Designer | Fashion | Orange Silk Gazar | Skirt

The third skirt in the group is the Orange Silk Gazar Skirt shown in the picture directly above on the right. This gorgeous skirt is decorated with a shell print and carnivorous flowers, dragons, hybrid creatures, and mysterious fairies. A similar model was shown for the first time during the Spring/Summer 2008 fashion shown in Milan but this piece is unique thanks to its orange color. As in the case of the Cyclamen Silk Gazar Skirt, this unique, one-of-a-kind item was purchased for 1300 Euros.

Prada | Designer | Fashion | Orange Knee-Length Patchwork | Skirt

The final piece in this group is the Orange Knee-Length Patchwork Skirt shown in the pictures directly above. This is another piece in the collection made of printed silk gazar, a heavy-weight organza used extensively in haute couture collections that was quite popular in the fifties. This prototype in orange is decorated with cut-out elements that are hand-sewn on the skirt. This unique, one-of-a-kind item was purchased for 1700 Euros.

Final Words - The Money's in the Prada Handbag

I would love to hear from you if you managed to snag one of these covetable pieces. What's your story? What motivated you to bid and finally purchase the piece(s) that you did? Will you wear the fashion and take the Prada Handbag with you or will simply keep these with your coveted private collection? Do you perhaps own a boutique and plan to display your newly acquired treasure in your store? What ever your story I would love to hear from you.

Prada | Designer | Fashion | Buckskin | Handbag Amazingly one seriously keen Prada lover snatched eight out of the ten items auctioned. Someone who goes by the screen name of Transito paid 4000 Euros for the Plum Buckskin Prada Handbag, 1300 Euros for the Antique Rose Buckskin Boot and 1450 Euros for the Plum Buckskin Boot. Add to these Transito also purchased the Cyclamen Silk Gazar Skirt (Euros 1300), the Orange Silk Gazar Skirt (Euros 1300), the Orange Knee-Length Patchwork Skirt (1700 Euros), the Sunny Yellow Pants (2100 Euros) and the Orange Pants (2000 Euros). Now that's a total of 15,150 Euros or $23,380 USD so fashionista Transito is one hell of a Prada lover. Will these prototype Prada fashions end up as part of a rare collection or will we see them back on some other auction site at some later date? I'd love to know. Transito, you take care of that Prada Handbag. It's really chic!!!

D&G | Dolce & Gabbana | Fashion | Designer | Pleated Cotton DressMichael Kors | Fashion | Designer | Bugle Beaded Shift Dress

However, my pick of all picks in this designer fashion sale is the D&G Dolce & Gabbana Chiffon Polka Dot Blouse shown in the very top picture on the left. It has long blouson sleeves with contrast banded cuffs, single button closures and front button placket. The blouse, especially with its long ties at the neck and pintucked seams over each shoulder, gives a classy look but I think its semi-sheer makes this a top super chic and sexy.
