So, tonight’s the night and I’m heading to a sneak preview of Sex and the City 2, courtesy of Coty Prestige and Sarah Jessica Parker’s fabulous Carrie Bradshaw-inspired fragrance, SJP NYC. I’ll give you some serious scoop on the fragrance and the event tomorrow (and if you want to follow the action tonight from the event, follow me on twitter and/or hashtag #SJPNYC), but as with any fabulous fashion event, I’ve done my homework and discovered some of the fabulous labels I’ll be seeing this evening.
Here are the names that will be on everyone’s lips after this weekend thanks to Patricia Field, Molly Rogers, their designer and vintage connections, and a healthy $10 million wardrobe budget:
Jee Vice – This French eyewear company is all over the movie, especially one Ms. Bradshaw. I already have two pairs of the stunners, but you’ll see Carrie rock a pair of these fabulous Jee Vice “Heated” Sunglasses in Orange Jubilee ($170).
Charlotte Olympia – this London “It” girl already has a celebrity cult following (Kate Moss, Sienna Miller, Anna Paquin are just a few) and her 40’s and 50’s-inspired footwear is all the rage across the pond, in Hollywood and now on the feet of Ms. Bradshaw. Look for spectacular footwear from the designer, like these Dolly Leather Platform Pumps ($556).
Halston Heritage – With SJP on the creative team, it’s no wonder these dresses would wind up front and center in this movie but trust me, when you see them in person, they’re FABULOUS. From the V-Neck Jersey Dress ($325) seen on the posters and the first shot of the film to the incredibly glam Metallic-Stripe Dress ($435), the revamp of the legendary design house hasn’t seen this much action since they closed Studio 54.
Solange Azagury-Patridge – Ladies who lunch and those of us who are obsessed with fine jewelry know the work of this designing dynamo with an eye for gems and chains that are simply out of this world. That necklace on Carrie on the poster? Hers. A lot of the chains in the movie? Hers. The new “Carrie” necklace in the opening scene is 18ct white gold with diamonds, emeralds, sapphires, rubies and fire opals and it costs almost $200,000. Can we say UPGRADE?!?
Low Luv – Another fabulous accessories label, this rocker cool label is a personal favorite of yours truly, especially piece from their collaboration with model-turned-designer Erin Wasson. Look for pieces from the brand to pop up almost everywhere, including this Snake-Hinged Cuff ($245).
The Blonds – As a HUGE fan of this rock-and-roll label, to me they need no introduction. You’ve seen their work on Rihanna, Katy Perry, Fergie and countless other celebrities and they add a whole new level of drama to the wardrobes of Carrie and Samantha in Abu Dhabi. You know, like Samantha’s fabulous red dress with all the spikes you keep seeing everywhere, previously rocked by RiRi?
I’ll report back on trends and all sorts of other things tomorrow but go ahead and look up these fabulous designers so you can get a leg up on your friends in the fashion department. The time has come, ladies! Sex and the City 2 is almost here!
