Sex and the City 2 Premiere (New York)

28 May

I don’t know about you but I have been counting down the days until the premiere of Sex and the City 2 for well, let’s just say quite a while now. I am going to be honest with you- I never watch the series- BUT, I still consider myself a HUGE fan. I loved the first movie and I’m really hoping for a third.

The New York City premiere was May 24, 2010 at Radio City Music Hall and I must say that I am LOVING the fashion! I am a big fan of neons/brights (which 50% of the main cast was wearing!)

Sex and the City 2 Premiere: New York City 05/24/10

First off, they all look amazing don’t you think? I am especially loving Carrie (far left) and Charlotte (second from the right) If you don’t know who is who though, I’m not really sure why you are reading this article, lol. *Note: I will be referring to the cast by their character names*

Let’s break down the outfits (from left to right for those of you who have been living under a rock!):

Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker)

Looked amazing in a neon yellow Valentino dress that was daring but definitely not skanky.  I almost didn’t recognize her! I think she looks great though from head to toe. She also looks a bit tanned? The only thing I wasn’t a big fan of were the heels (by Salvatore Ferragamo). While I like the colour and style, I found that they made her feet look ridiculously large. What do you think?

Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall)

My least favourite of the bunch (and I usually LOVE what she wears.)  It was a slinky Naeem Khan dress that was covered in a daisy like print. I guess up close (I wouldn’t know as I wasn’t there) it was very un-elegant. I think the colour is a bit washed out as well. Are you digging this?

Charlotte York (Kristin Davis)

Can I please have Carrie’s dress but in Charlotte’s colour? The hot neon electrifying pink makes me so…. excited. It’s young, it’s fresh, it’s super cool and she looks great! Even better was the fact that it was a vintage Jean Dresses gown! It fit her body and personality perfectly!

Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon)

Where to start? It was pretty, but it was plain. What happened to the fierce (did I just type that word?) and fiery red numbers? Usually it’s Miranda standing out on the carpet. I think she played it too safe in this Carolina Herrera gown.  The photo looks pretty plain Jane to me, although I have been reading that up close it was a very exquisite dress.

The After Party

The loud ladies in neon opted for a change of wardrobe for the afterparty. Could the vintage dress have been too tight and too hard to walk in for Charlotte? Possibly.  What about SJP? I loved her Valentino dress- it deserved much more than the 15 minutes of fame it got. Both ladies ended up changing into more flirty after party approved dresses. Carrie slipped into a beautiful sleeved dress with black lace by Elie Saab (that was right off the runway from her 2010 Fall collection!) Might I point out the super hot platform sandals from Kasia’s 2010 collection! (HAWT!) Charlotte ended up changing into a vintage Pierre Balmain Couture dress for the after party. What do you think? Who did the best outfit change? Was it the right thing to do?

I am super sad that I couldn’t be there. I am also bummed that I didn’t grab my tickets (for the movie) early enough. At my local theatre (which offers VIP reserved seating service) all of the shows were (basically) sold out until Monday. So I opted for Tuesday tickets (the money saver in me- 50% less on Tuesday’s!) I will do a mini (non-spoiler) review after I see it. I will leave you with some SATC fashions from the New York premiere! Enjoy! xo.
