Sex And The City PremiereSo the girls are back in a full length feature that's been so hyped up only the comatose haven't heard of it. All this excitement over a movie about 40-somethings cheers me up a bit, considering the dearth of major female roles in Hollywood, much less roles for any female over 30, but I wonder if its target female audience is enough to put SATC over the top box office wise.
Judging by the premiere, perhaps it will surprise us yet:
...a ticket snafu left thousands of fashionistas all dressed up with absolutely no place to go...Uh, that's crazy. Harmless fun but crazy. More movie premiere wackiness from Liz Smith, who was actually there.
As for the fashions, the NYC premiere had more good than bad. Sarah Jessica Parker looked radiant in Nina Ricci even though it overwhelmed her petite frame a bit. Cynthia Nixon was sleek and lean in a simple white Narciso Rodriguez . Kristin Davis wore a gold Donna Karan that I personally wouldn't wear but looked adorable on her, if a tad too long. Too bad I can't say the same for Kim Cattrall's ill-conceived and ill-fitting Vivienne Westwood gunmetal bustier dress. The rest of the cast and celebrity attendees in their getups can be found here.
I don't have a burning desire to see SATC; it's cotton candy better suited for tv, and I'm not expecting a more realistic ending than the sappy series finale, especially now that they've extended the franchise on the big screen. If I do see it, it's mainly to check out the shoes and the clothes, some of which are showcased here.
