SATC’s Beauty and Style

For 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 fans everywhere. 

Now, four years after Sex’s unwelcome demise, we’re finally getting some closure thanks to Friday’s release of Sex and the City, the movie. 

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…

The fashion

It’s 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 at figleaves.com.

The beauty

As to how the movies four main actresses stay glowing, I’ve rounded some of the stars’ beauty secrets. Steal away…

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.
