FYI: The official Sex and the City movie merchandise is now available with SJP's BITTEN products at Steve & Barry's! I think I've finally found what I'm wearing to see the movie!
Sex and the City: The Movie may be up for the Oscar race after all!
SATC costume designer Patricia Field is more than likely to take the film full of fashion labels to the Academy Awards. The super-talented stylist may even win the movie an Oscar.
Fashion has always been an important character in SATC. Field, who nabbed an Oscar nomination two years ago for The Devil Wears Prada, helped the HBO series rise to fame with a well-known use of designer duds.
In the movie, Sarah Jessica Parker alone has 81 wardrobe changes, while Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon, have 200 wardrobe changes between them. And, Vogue’s fashion editor Andre Leon Talley has a cameo role.
According to Women’s Wear Daily, "When it came to the clothes (for the film), they went for visual overload. The label-dropping — Chanel, Prada, Vera Wang, Carolina Herrera, Oscar de la Renta, Christian Lacroix, Vivienne Westwood and, of course, Manolo Blahnik, whom Carrie did not trade in for Christian Louboutin — is intense."
