Sex and the City Movie 2: Fashion Delirium
If by chance you have somehow failed to come across pre-launch articles about the clothes in the new Sex and the City 2 movie opening this week, it will nevertheless come as no surprise that the clothes are even more outrageous and high-priced than ever before.
As expected and hoped for, the foursome in SATC2 parade a wardrobe of extravagance, to say the least.
While the going criticism is that the clothes are too outrageous, too expensive ($10 million wardrobe!), and absolutely unrealistic, would we really want to see anything else? After all, we don’t need to tune in to our fab four NYC ladies to find out what’s trending at H&M and TopShop- that’s what we are wearing.
Article by Amy O’Dell, The Cut:
There is much to look forward to fashion-wise in the ladies’ $10 million wardrobe: In the karaoke scene pictured, Carrie wears $4,000 embellished jeans by the Blonds under a $47,190 silver-and-gold Chanel lamé dress and overskirt. The spiky shoulders Samantha wears in Abu Dhabi are also by the Blonds and cost $5,000. The matching outfits Samantha and Miley Cyrus wear include $3,500 Matthew Williamson dresses and $300 Dolce Vita boots. Charlotte makes cupcakes in a vintage Valentino blouse under an Anthropologie apron. Miranda wears a $1,400 Roland Mouret dress and in another scene a five-figure 24-karat gold cuff.
The official movie website has cleverly offered an interactive closet sneak peek into the outfits strutted on set. Pick a garment and see who wears it in what scene and where to buy the individual pieces- either the originals or user-suggested look-alikes. A prominent user Comments scrolling column is filled with people like us ooh-ing and ahh-ing as they offer outfit finds that would suitably recreate looks from the movie at a fraction of the filming budget.
Sex and the City 2 opens in theatres on Thursday and while you’ll have to wait until then to see this summer’s fashion flick, we were lucky enough to score ticks to a pre-screening event tomorrow (!).
The pre-screening invite states the Dress Code: “Manolos Optional- Feel free to channel your inner SATC character and dress to impress!”
Need I add that there will surely be a lot of outfit judging going on at this movie event? Let the outfit games begin!
