SATC


i just got back from watching the sex and the city movie. i highly recommend it. the fashion is fabulous. you will want everything. well almost everything.

first of all the blue manolo blahniks were beaUtiful.

i loved them the moment i saw her take them out of the box and i was glad they got to play an important role in the movie. right at the end mother got all excited. she was like ooh do you think he hid the ring in the shoe? it's kind of sad when you have to explain to someone that the shoe IS the ring.

i counted 4 boys in the entire theatre. the one in my row was shhhed by the girlfriend when he snickered at an inappropriate moment. i was curious to find out what he had been promised in exchange for showing up.

our audience was very vocal right from the start. there were lots of oohs and aaahs and awwwwing and gasping at various stages of the movie. 'even HBO presents' got loud applause. mother added to the noise level with her comments. according to her every other outfit was "OUTRAGEOUS!" and "TOO MUCH, MY GOD!". she did say she liked the movie though except for all the sex parts. yes she was made aware of the title before we entered the hall and no she has never watched an episode of sex and the city.

charlotte's little chinese kid was super adorable.

samantha's hot naked neighbour was seriously hot!

i still don't get what's so great about big.

i decided at the end that i could potentially consider marriage [key word here being 'consider'] if it came with THAT closet. and i'm not even talking all her clothes, although that wouldn't be so terrible, but just that closet he built for her.

favourite fashion moments - the giant flower dress right at the beginning, charlotte's dress to the wedding plus all the stunning gowns for carrie's vogue shoot. i cannot believe she chose the vivienne westwood gown. it was my least favourite of the lot.

p.s. i changed my outfit twice before i left the house to watch this movie. then i decided i wasn't wearing enough colour so i decided to take along my printed silk dark green bag. i'm silly like that.

also after watching the movie i was inspired enough to dig out some heels to wear to work tomorrow. i usually wear pointy flats or ballet flats or some type of comfy sandals to work but tomorrow i will be wearing my heels. just for tomorrow. i feel like i owe it to them. them being fashionable people everywhere? i don't know. good nite.

Me watched S&TC with a bunch of very expressive girls too. And we all thought that Mr.Big was an ass.

Otherwise, fashion was fab! Loved Miranda's gold dress in the opening scene. And the S&TC effect is that I have now painted my toes a fire engine red and keep staring at them instead of working..

"shallow and shrill" said a reviewer in the NYT. i decided to save my $$.

@TGFI
the reviewer is probably a st. guy..listen to the gals or the gays :P

IMO 'BIG' is the Clooney type guy..u know rich, successful, commitment phobic. Carrie loved him and changed him to the marrying type...every little girl's dream.
LOL

@serendipity,
i agree on the movie release delays - and this weekend is going one giant big girls-night out (and more gals making it an entire girls-day out) in every metro.. We gals just need an excuse, right? ;)

Nice blog!

Sigh! All the fashion was a work of art in the movie! I am seriously thinking of buying a pair of blahniks and putting them in a showcase...

Chronicus Skepticus said...

I'm with you on the Big-confusion. Seriously, he was so...bleh!

But, but, BUT! Was the neighbour hotter than Smith? I think not! Pretty, pretty Smith...*sigh*

Was goingtu watchit anyway; but now more fueled because of the profound mystery: Shoe is a Ring?

*Hope its not on the lines of orange being the new pink.*
