Get The Look: Sex And The City 2

When it comes to Sex and the City 2, famed wardrobe stylist Patricia Field decided on a fresh take. “I was just personally a little bit tired of all of these exaggerated, artificial shapes on clothing,” she stated. “Shoulders pointed out to there and skirts that look ballooned. I was just feeling—desiring—like, chic simplicity.”

What we’ve seen so far from the stills and trailer are vibrant shades of red, blue, green, pink and more, with super feminine silhouettes, billowy fabrics and plentiful of jewels.

From harem pants to turbans, the film is sure to be rich with the most relevant trends today.

Filmmakers did take the current state of the economy into consideration when it came to this sequel, but not in the way you would think.

“I knew [‘Sex and the City 2’] had to be a different vibe,” said the film’s writer-director-producer Michael Patrick King at a press conference held Sunday at Bergdorf Goodman’s shoe salon. “I sat down to write in what was the beginning of an economic downturn, and we’re still in it. Like in the Great Depression, I thought Hollywood should take people on a big vacation that maybe they couldn’t afford themselves. I wanted to make it a big, extravagant vacation.”

Of course, they did try to keep it real with the times when it comes to some aspects.  I mean, Carrie and Mr. Big did trade in their Fifth Avenue penthouse to a spot that’s “a little more down to earth.…12 floors, to be exact.”


As WWD.com put it,  “Patricia Field wasted no chance to beturban and bejewel the ladies to cartoonish extremes, which is, by now, par for the course. And King seized every opportunity to play on the cultural divides (and unifiers) between the way American and Middle Eastern women are expected to dress. In his world, the women of Abu Dhabi wear Vuitton under their burkas.”

One of my favorite looks from the still is below, where the four fashionistas are fabulously strolling through the dessert, rocking a rainbow of electrifying colors:
