a decade, Sex and the City has defined style
for generations of chic women. As a testament to the
series’ stylish appeal, SATC, which went off the
air in 2004, has lived on in the hearts of addicted
Now, four years after Sex’s unwelcome
demise, we’re finally getting some closure thanks
to Friday’s release of Sex and the City,
Will Carrie and big finally get married? Is Charlotte
realizing her dream of becoming a mom? Are Steve and
Miranda over? One thing is for sure, no matter the story
line, it’s the beauty and style of SATC’s
four stars that will serve up our happy ending. And
this week, I’ve got a sneak peek at happiness…
been said that no one had ever heard of Manolo Blahnik
until Carrie. True or not, SATC’s fearless
sex columnist has undeniably fanned the flames for an
abundance of trends from giant flower adornments (season
3) to sky-high, high-priced European shoes. In SATC,
the movie, the edgy looks continue. Some looks may seem
unwearable for the average woman while others are sure
to become stylish staples.
Carrie’s leather finger tip gloves appear odd
but given that they’re a creation of SATC’s
favorite designer, Patricia Field, they may just be
destined to become the next big thing. Lauren
Messiah, fashion and beauty expert at ThisNext.com
agrees, “Most of the fashions on Sex and the
City are unavailable or way out of the average
woman's price range. Fingertip gloves can be purchased
online for only $32 so I think woman are going to be
open to trying out the trend.” Available in black,
nude, red and white for $32 at patriciafield.com.
In another scene, Carrie continues the lingerie-by-day
trend sporting a grey, one-piece romper crafted of cotton
and silk and made by The Lake and Stars. The
piece, reportedly hand selected by Sarah Jessica Parker,
features strips of silk in the front that fall open
lending a glimpse at the star’s bra (another staple
Carrie look- the exposed undergarment) paired with jeans.
The romper is available in sizes XS thru L for $215
to how the movies four main actresses stay glowing,
I’ve rounded some of the stars’ beauty secrets.
Kim Cattrall’s timeless sex appeal is partly
due to religious use of sunblock, namely Murad's Oil-free
Sunblock SPF 30. Cattrall, aka Samantha, calls upon
daily use of sunblock alone or under makeup to prevent
signs of aging caused by environmental exposure. Packed
with pure Pomegranate Extract, Murad's Oil-free Sunblock
SPF 30 helps prevent free radical damage; available
for $30 at murad.com.
Kristin Davis, the clean-cut Charlotte, stays fresh
thanks to the skincare line AHAVA which hails from the
Dead Sea in Israel. Davis calls upon AHAVA’s
Cleansing Milk and Mineral Eye Cream, among other products
from the collection. AHAVA’s Dead Sea minerals,
salts, and botanicals help Davis maintain her signature
healthy glow and fresh appearance even in the midst
of her sexy celebrity lifestyle.
Makeup artist Billy B finishes Davis look with Alison
Raffaele's Transparent Finish Powder ($26 at alisonraffaele.com).
This talc free and paraben free powder appears white
however it is actually transparent and ideal
for all skin tones, from the lightest t the darkest.
Finally, Mandy Lyons, the celebrity hairdresser on
SATC the Movie, used the ProSilk curling iron and flat
iron on Sarah Jessica Parker to create a bevy
of beautiful ‘dos to suit the star of Sex
and her ever-evolving style.
