As Carrie Bradshaw she enthralled women across the UK with her kooky style for six years. So it's no surprise Sarah Jessica Parker turned up for the movie premiere of Sex and the City with an attention grabbing hat. On top of her blonde curly hair, the green creation sat looking more like a bowl of fruit than a headpiece. Along with a pistachio prom-style dress, the 43-year-old showed she is still unafraid to pioneer a new style. The cast of Sex in the City wore a mixture of English and American designers to the world premier last night. Sarah wore Alexander McQueen, Kristen Davis opted for vintage and Cynthia Nixon chose a Calvin Klein gown and Chopard diamond and sapphire necklace, earrings and ring worth 200,000, while Kim Cattrall wore Vivienne Westwood. The film of the HBO tv show has been hotly anticipated since it went into production last year. The film finds friends Carrie (Parker), Samantha, (Kim Cattrall), Charlotte (Kristin Davis) and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) continuing to juggle work and relationships, while navigating motherhood. Chris Noth reprises his role as Carrie's Mr Big, David Eigenberg is Miranda's down-to-earth husband Steve, Evan Handler plays Charlotte's dependable husband Harry, and Jason Lewis makes a showing as actor Smith - Samantha's devoted lover. When pressed to give some clue as to the film's content, Parker said it was "about forgiveness and pursuing love in a way that is real and meaningful". "I think it's about what it means to be a grown-up, and to recognise your own complicity and disappointment," the BBC previously reported her as saying. "I think in your 20s you spend a lot of time making the boys the villains. "There's a difference when you're 40. You really experience loss and disappointment and you have to reconcile what part you played in it."
Um, what? I was under the impression the movie would be about sex and shoes and shopping and sex and cosmos and sex and fashion and sex ... was I wrong? Man, I just know the movie is gonna rule ... the early buzz is that the film turned out just the way fans hoped it would turn out. We are still a little over 2 weeks away from the film's release here in the US and there are still a few more premieres in the meantime. I wonder what sort of crazy accessories SJP has planned for the other red carpets to come. [Source]
