SEX AND THE CITY

SEX AND THE CITY
MANIA PART II

First off, two claps for Patricia Fields for being a fashion genius and putting all the fabulous outfits from Sex and The City together. I am beyond blown away by this woman's skill and talent, her outfits truly tell a story.


Side note: RIP Yvre St Laurent, August 1936 - June 1 2008.

Spoiler alert I guess. I don't give too much away, but if your skiddish about this sort of stuff feel free to scroll down.

I finally got to see Sex and The City, I say finally because I meant to see it on Friday, but when I got there it was sold out. I've never been sold out of a movie in my entire life!
So on Friday I bought my ticket for Saturday night. When I first went to the theater I was really worried that I might be disappointed, but that was the furthest from the truth. The opening credits were amazing, and the movie does wrap everything up in a neat little bow. I felt satisfied, giddy and happy at the end. The outfits were definitely just as important and interesting as the story line. I had seen a lot of them before in pictures, but there were definitely some surprises. The movie was long too, which I liked, I can't wait to see it again. Instead of illegally downloading it, I will make the effort to open my wallet and buy it on DVD.
Oh and Charlotte's expressions are classic! I'm still laughing!

MAJOR TREND IN THE MOVIE
STUDDED BELTS

I use to have a few, when I was going through a punk sort of stage back in high school. Yeah I know strange. Who knew they could look so cute and stylish? I want one again, I never thought I would say those words.






I liked it best combined with this pink dress, just fabulous. Miranda also wore the studded belt, but I could not find any pictures of her in that scene after searching for half an hour.


I've been wanting to stud my cheap Payless shoes for a while now, I even bought the studs. I can't bring myself to do it yet, I keep thinking it's not going to turn out right and that the studs will prick me.


BURBERRY
PRORSUM STUDDED SHOES



A couple of the looks I really enjoyed from the movie. I particularly like the second one when Carrie was going to Miranda's house in the middle of the night. The cap she's wearing is all sorts of cute.


CARRIE AND THE LADIES AT
VIVIENNE WESTWOOD
I love how they incorporated this into the movie, great idea.
Carrie's 'wedding' dress, who else thought this was absolutely gross? There was something very Carrie about it, but I still didn't completely understand why she went crazy for this puff ball.

Other variations from the Vivienne Westwood show. I've never been a fan, but she sure is entertaining.

This scene almost made me cry.


This one was great.

NEW POSH FOR MJ


I thought these ads had already run their course? She kinda looks like a burnt up sausage here, I don't get it.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


CHANEL HAUTE CONCEPT

BOUTIQUE STORE OPENING


Fancy.


RACHEL BILSON
These shoes are quite different for Rachel. I like. I also love the clutch she paired with this outfit, I always love a punch of color.


MARIA MENOUNOS
If I hear this girl talk about how she use to be 'fat' I'm going to...oh never mind.

ANGIE HARMON

Not feeling it at all.


MALIN
AKERMAN
I think she's one of the best that I've seen in a jumpsuit.


EMMA ROBERTS / LEIGHTON MEESTER
I really like Emma's hair dark, it suits her well. Her floral dress is cute too, but I'm not sure about the shoes. I have to say if anybody brought it hardcore it was Leighton, fab.


MICHELLE TRACHTENBERG
Pete Wentz's ex girlfriend doesn't seem to be too busy licking her wounds.


TRACEE ELLIS ROSS / KRISTY HUME
If you don't know of Tracee as a fashionista then I suggest you do, she has impeccable funky style.


AMBER VALLETTA / NICOLETTE SHERIDAN

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


BUTTERFLY BALL


DEMI MOORE & ASHTON KUTCHER

Personally I hope these two last, but how long does Demi have till she really starts looking old? Hopefully Ashton doesn't mind.


EVA MENDEZ / KATHERINE HEIGL
Eva looks great, this is one of those rare times when she doesn't screw it up.


KATE WALSH / REBECCA GAYHEART

Kate looks like a little red tulip here. I like Rebecca's dress, but not on her. Maybe she's just not tall enough for this look?


MILA KUNIS / ROSELYN SANCHEZ
Roselyn = Boring. Not sure about Mila's lipstick choice either.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SPIKE TV'S GUY'S CHOICE AWARDS


MEGAN FOX AND HER POUT

I don't like this girl, who does she think she is? Angelina? Get over yourself!!!!!!

CAMERON DIAZ I'm a sucker for ruffles.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


MTV JAPAN MUSIC AWARDS


PARASITE HILTON IN MARC BY MJ
She's been wearing a lot of Marc Jacobs lately. Despite the fact that it's Paris, I like this dress on her.


PARIS / NELLY
I wouldn't expect anything less, but some frou frou Betsey Johnsonesque dress.


RINKO KIKUCHI / MARIAH
Rinko looks like some sort of space age creature here, I don't get it. As for Mariah, it's just another short dress.


FERGIE FERG

I can see your nipples, that's not good.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PEOPLE FROM THE HILLS


SPEIDI AND PETE WENTZ?
I didn't think he would want to be seen with these two losers.

WHITNEY PORT


How cute are these two dresses? I'm really impressed with Whitney lately, I'm glad that she's getting photographed more. Finally!


LAUREN CONRAD & LO


THE HILLS PEOPLE IN VEGAS
I can't keep up with these people, they are just everywhere.

Celebrating Frankie's brithday (Third from the right). What would Spencer say about Stephanie "She Pratt" spending so much time with Lauren? "You are making yourself cry, thinking about the things that you did" Classic, he blew is own mind.


LAUREN & LO

THE SIMPSONS AND WENTZSI like Ashlee's little Heidi braid here.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


CELEB LOOKS


AUBREY O'DAY & JASLENE FROM ANTM

I had to start by taking out the trash, which Audrey Aubrey clearly is. She totally ruins this potentially cute dress. Love what Jaslene is wearing, who knew she could be so in tune with fashion?

KIKI DRUNKST

She apparently went to rehab for depression, if you ask me it's hitting the bottle one too many times because she was depressed.


NICOLE RICHIE AND SOME RANDOM PINK DOG

NICOLE AT HER FOUNDATION'S BENEFIT PARTY
It's nice to see her doing good. If you ask me though, she's wearing way too much makeup, especially for a children's event. It's sad to see her getting so skinny again, I hope she's healthy.

CHRISTINA MILIANPicking up free stuff makes anybody smile.

FASHION DON'T: DRESSING LIKE YOUR
ASSISTANT BRIT BRIT SPEARS YA'LL

WHO WORE IT BETTER

HEIDI MONTAG / BRIT BRIT SPEARS
When I first saw this picture of Heidi I thought she was wearing the same swimsuit that Britney did in Costa Rica a week ago. But with examination I realize that it's not the same, but kind of smililar. I woudln't put it past Heidi anyway, she's told everyone she want's to be just like her.


MARY-KATE OLSEN
She's still wearing those truck stop John Lennon sunglasses. Put them away!


HALLE BERRY
When are we going to see Nahla?


DIANE KRUGER
I still haven't been able to find a fringe bag anywhere in this city. Stores can take so logn to pick up on trends.

deexdeexdreamer said...

o how we love these long posts! i love the black romper thing nicole is wearing, it reminds me of Life With Bird. Also, poor kirsten dunst. Also, michelle + pete wentz? LOL.

xx

annabananna said...

that's a great satc-post! you found pictures of some of the coolest moments of the movie. i'll do it like you: i definitely have to see it again AND buy the dvd afterwards. haven't done that in a very long time!

Belle said...

patricia fields is a drag queen superstar.

it's the scenester 15 year old in me, but i've always loved studded belts, just not in the typical Scene-queen way. I love to wear it with my frou frou skirts, never got around to posting a picture on the blog though.

Flying Saucer studded her pumps and they worked for awhile, but the fell off and ruined the shoes! i think it's an alright experiment for cheapo shoes, but you'd be better off getting the Hot Topic knock-offs which are quite good if you want long term.

one of the tings me and my dad agree on it that adriana lima will always be sexy. i heart her so.

JuliAM said...

i loved the movie and totally DID cry during that scene, lol. i'm obsessed with the studded belt from the movie (where is the one you featured from, jen?) good luck on the studding!

jayne said...

SATC was great, like you I loved Carrie's outfit on new years, the beret was fab and man, the scene where she (sorry slight spoiler) beat the crap out of big was awful :(

Seraphine said...

1. I *loved* Sex and the City! The clothes, especially at the first half of the movie, were amazing. I'll go see it again!
2. Shame on you for comparing Britney to anyone! lol.
3. Random pink dog? That's funny too.

bear said...

wow!! what a long post!! i loved that studded belt in satc! tear re ysl.

SKYLA said...

i was looking forward to your SATC post and it didn't disappoint-love the shots you picked out. the toss/take scene was one of the best, the white tutu dress...:)

and RIP YSL

Aretha said...

I can't wait to watch SATC here, the clothes are dreammy!

Sharon Rose said...

hi jen-fabulous post, especially on satc!! My favourite girly scene was the take or trash part as well! I nearly choked when big jilted her-so sad! it was ace though-I'm definitley buying the dvd too!

Fashion Is Poison said...

i need that studded belt!

Imelda Matt said...

I heart M-TRAC...give me more. Jen you've lived the Aussie life so you know a burnt sausage looks more charred...lol. Memo to Kirsten - nana wedges (in fact nana shoes) are so last summer!

Make Do & Mend said...

What joy SATC - thanks for lovely pics. Can't wait for DVD too and am going again this week!

PS do you think Demi might be preggers? Hence slightly bloated look. Dlisted hinted at it!

Debbie Shiamay said...

Love this post... like every other post too! Your blog is always hyped up. I love the SJP photos. FAB

The Clothes Horse said...

If I believed about why they went to rehab it would be Kirtsen Dunst and depression is a serious issue, she doesn't need to drink and be depressed to need to go to rehab.
And there's a commercial running on MYV with Pete Wentz and Spencer--so I think Pete is getting paid to be seen with that....loser.

Neekoh said...

Not a big fan of Megan Fox either... she's so trying too hard!
Also, Heidi Montag is pretty much the scum of the earth. She's just blah.

And I can't wait to get a free minute to watch SATC!! No spoilers yet!

Times of Glory said...

What a great tribute to Sex and the City! I really love the style of your blog... very stylish! It is a great movie, as it is pretty hard to capture all the things they want to offer in a such a short time... but it is eye-candy for viewers xxxxxxxxxx

emsie said...

I'm glad kirsten dunst is back. Missed her when she was in rehab.

Grace's said...

Kirsten and Rachel are pretty, I love Rachel's dress :-) Thank for this post!
Kisses

CULTURE CREATORS said...

I just found your blog and I am a fan. Great posts, I enjoyed all of your pictures. Such a good idea to studdd your low budge shoes! I think I might try that...

keep up the awesome work,
CC

Siljesfashion said...

Love Carrie in all those outfits, vant wait to see the movie in four days. I picked up my fringe bag at Zara, but thats the only place I have seen it here to. Happy belated birthday!

Winnie said...

Oh I am loving the SATC images! I want to see it again! Charlotte was fantastic, she did make me giggle.

fashion herald said...

must get a similar studded belt! it's got to be wide...

Kira Fashion said...

I can´t wait to watch Sex in the city next weekend! so delight!

fergie got silicon implants? maybe...she is not good :)

a kiss!!!
you are very sweet!!!love all the selections!

The Clothes Horse said...

Hi Jen, sorry if my comment sounded sharp, I really didn't intend it too. It's just depression is a serious issue a lot of people sweep to the side and alcoholism might be a symptom of this rather than the cause... I don't know it's all just supposing. My previously comment and what I just mentioned in this one, aren't so much against even what you wrote though, it's just a general thought. I'm glad you took the time to respond to me about it, I consider you a blog friend as well. I don't even know if this clears anything up... As I mentioned before in my own blog I am in a bit of a random mood lately...don't really know whats going on somedays. I do enjoy your posts and I think what you said did upset me, but not towards you or your blog and maybe not even about Kirsten...who knows...?

Miss Woo said...

Ye gods, those Marc Jacobs adverts just got sillier and sillier!

ps: a late happy one year blogging b-day from me!

etoilee8 said...

That scene broke my heart too. I'm going to have a hard time watching it the second time around. Also, I hated the way that Viv dress looked on Carrie. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Vivienne Westwood dresses, but I think the dress looked a bit off on her. . . I also was surprised that Vivienne Westwood was cool with being such a big part of such American capitolism. . . it's a bit out of the ordinary for her to be so agreeable. . .but I suppose stranger things have happened.

Savvy Gal said...

Love the Chanel post, and am going to see Sex and the City soon, I think for the fashion accessories, and not the plot. I usually love Chanel, but was floored when I saw star print outfits. I thought then to try it in person b/c it maybe better on. Alas, no...

(¯`·._.·[***Fresh&Fab***]·._.·´¯) said...

love Aubrey but most most of her fashion choices are terrible.

i cant imaging how man outfit they used for the sex and the city movie, im sure it will be alot...

Dollfaced Rebel said...

Whew!!! I love your posts!!!
I am an addict. SATC was AMAZING!!!!
-Good luck with your shoes... I honestly think that they will turn out great!

glamour girly said...

I love the dress on Cameron Diaz, and the jumpsuit on Malin, and I hate Carrie's wedding dress puff ball.

Love this post, and happy birthday!

Silvana* said...

i LOVE whitney's dress! so summery!

The Seeker said...

Great, great post.
Love the SATC coverage, since I don't know when I would be able to see it.
Who would say about the studded belt...
All great pictures.

xoxo

rebecca said...

Re: kiki: It would be cool to drop the 'drunkst' nickname now that she's been honest about why she was at cirque....depression is a hard thing to be honest about. Yeah, maybe she was self medicating , but that doesn't mean she's an alcoholic.

Emily said...

first off, where do you live that a movie is only $9.99? i guess l.a. has simply astronomical prices...as for megan fox, she presented and accepted an award at the mtv movie awards (i got to go!), and i was very annoyed by her. not only does that pout get old fast, the second she opened her mouth to speak, i was very put off.

taylor said...

I, on the other hand, LOVE megan fox, and her pout is gorgeous...

I don't understand the huge hype over the Sex and the City wardrobes... maybe if young, decent looking actresses were wearing the clothes, I would feel differently, but Sarah Jessica Parker just ruins the whole thing for me.

jellofer said...

Eeeeee Sex and the City!! I am going to hold off on watching it because I HATEEEE crowded theaters, yet I am so anxious!! LOL.

You know...I have a studded belt too hanging around in my closet somewhere...haha.

You know, I am VERY surprised Ottawa STILL doesn't have ONE H&M...There are SO many in Toronto. I can think of 3 from the top of my head just in the downtown core alone. There's also one in every major mall surrounding Toronto. Kinda weird how they would sorta oversaturate the market here =/

NewlyInspired said...

LOVE this post! Cameron Diaz's orange dress is lovely! So is that studded belt that i'm on the hunt to buy!

aizat.cinta.goddess said...

awwwwwwwww..love the skirt that jeslene wore!!!it is fantastic

and yes studded is back!!

Diana Coronado said...

What a long & interesting post.
I like the way you design the text header on your post.

Jen (MahaloFashion) said...

rebecca - I never will!! And did you forget about her DUIs?
Do you research.

LBIC said...

Don't get me started on the love that I have for the SATC movie. I laughed, I cried and I was not disappointed in the least.

rebecca said...

Hmm...I knew Nicole had a DUI, not to mention other celebs. but Kirsten? I never heard that. My friend works for the fan site, she's never heard that either.

Jen (MahaloFashion) said...

^ that's why everyone calls her drunkst! It was a few years ago she was out to dinner with friends and got caught after.

anyway I wasn't making fun of her depression, you don't need to educate me about it. I've had a mother in and out of the mental hospital my whole life because she's been wanting to kill me and herself since before I was born.
So trust me when I say, I know.

CHIC NOIR said...

ADRIANA LIMA is one of the best looking women ever.

Megan Fox is also very nice looking but she does remind me of Angelina Jolie a bit.

rebecca said...

Oh, you're thinking of the punkd episode...that was a practical joke :) And Kirsten wasn't driving anyway, her friend was.

vogued out!!! said...

I fell for the studded belt on SJP in the SATC movie...Nicole Richie's face is pefect...Megan Good is perection and Halle looking great as always.

Jen (MahaloFashion) said...

rebecca - I never saw that episode I don't know what your talking about. If you look it up you'll see what i'm taking about.

Anyway rebecca if your not happy with me calling her drunkst then you don't have to come back here!

goodbye.

rebecca said...

Jen, I like your site and I was just making a suggestion. You said everyone calls her 'drunkst' because of her DUI, and you told me to 'do my research.'...
So I did, and Kirsten has never been arrested for a DUI. All you have to do is google it, and nothing comes up...or just email Jess at Kirsten-Dunst.org, and she will confirm that Kirsten has never had a DUI. Jess has been running that site for ten years, so she ought to know. :)
Anyway, this is not a personal attack on you in anyway.... I was just doing what you told me to do.
