Be Like Carrie Bradshaw, Sans The Co-Dependence And Whining
Here we go again: the anticipation for the Sex and the City 2 movie is starting, with what else but tons of collaborations? Apparently, the fashion and beauty industries have been feeling very "inspired." From underwear to a soon-to-be-released special edition HP computer collaboration, and upcoming Payless collaboration with the movie's famed stylist, Patricia Field. SATC 2 is about to invade every aspect of your life: Select your undergarment according to which Sex and the City character best fits your mood that day (slutty? sweet? curious? take-charge?) with Cosabella's 4-pack of "Cutie Booty" thongs ($69). It's a totally cheesy concept, but Cosabella's thongs are comfy, sexy and cute so we can support a well-priced thong box set. We've been drooling over Sarah Jessica Parker's latest line for Halston Heritage, so it was not so shocking to see that Carrie makes not one, but two appearances in SATC 2 in SJP's breezy designs. Get the iconic white dress ($325) and the pleated 70's inspired party look ($435) that we're sure Carrie will wear to a fabulous New York City party. These foldable "after party" flats on the HBO website are actually a kind of genius idea to store in your bag for when you can't stand your heels any longer. Each of the four pairs of shoes ($64.99) is--you guessed it-inspired by one of the characters, with the Carrie on top left followed by the Miranda, Charlotte, and Samantha on the bottom right. Patricia Field, who, as we mentioned, is designing a fall line for Payless that we cannot wait for - also sells SATC-inspired gear at her NYC store. Get the same metallic Mykita and Bernhard Willhelm limited-edition shades Carrie sports throughout the upcoming movie ($525). No one ever said dressing like Carrie Bradshaw would be cheap. Julep's 4 latest colors are (do we even need to say it?) inspired by the styles and personalities of Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte ($24.50 for the set, $7.25 separately) as shown from left to right. Paint your nails to match your Cosabella thong and HBO flats to truly embody the essence of each character.

Sex and the City 2 Is Almost Here and We’ve Got Photos to Prove It
Today we received our first official sneak peek at Sex and the City 2 through the highly anticipated trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XKQ5yRFkBnE Stylist Patricia Field did an excellent job curating beautiful clothes for the girls, and the plot has us captivated, too. Anthony and Stanford tying the knot? The girls in the desert? Samantha and a new man? We can barely wait until May 28 to see it all. Alas, we can only hope they release another even juicier trailer before May, but if not here are some stills from the movie to tide us all over. We're obsessed with the simplicity of Carrie's white v-neck dress and gold accessories. Miranda's killer mustard colored asymmetrical dress and belt combo is something to consider for spring. Meanwhile, we're excited to see a peplum silhouette on Charlotte. We're trying to guess what will happen based on the looks on their faces--it looks like Samantha just said someting inapppropriate. We're seriously lusting after a jewel-toned dress to pair with our tights in the meantime. Ah, the Carrie closet shot. Too bad we can't see anything. We couldn't help but wonder: what is she doing in her old apartment? Miranda does sequins right, without looking like something out of '80s Dynasty. We're not sure how we feel about the urban turban--but we're having major hair envy. What do you think about Samantha's cut-out swimsuit? If you can't pull it off, maybe you'll be happy to know Spanx's doing a swimwear line. Feeling inspired by Carrie's shades or maybe Samantha's swimsuit?
