Step into the Star Lounge in the Bryant Park Tents at Mercedez Benz Fashion Week and you will step into a tartan, sex and the city inspired world, where four mannequins are dressed to designer fashion, peep toe sandalled, hard shell clutch bagged perfection. Because this is the room where Oscar Nominated (nominated for her work on The Devil Wears Prada) Costume Designer Patricia Field is previewing four costumes from the SATC movie due to hit theatres at the end of May.
The Carrie mannequin wears a rose print balloon hem top with matching pencil skirt, zebra-stripe Manolo Blahnik peep toes and carries a hard case orange Fendi Clutch bag – Carrie is still mixing and matching then.
Charlotte wears a Ferragamo strapless, spiderweb dress with heavily beaded flowers alond with Christian Louboutin snakeskin peep toes. Patricia Field tells us that Charlotte is a little more Jackie O these days.
Samantha is in a vintage Thierry Muggler yellow power jacket with a jagged neckline, a black pencil skirt, gold hard clutch and gold Dior, you guessed it peep toes.
And finally Miranda’s mannequin wears a bold black and white geometric t-shirt dress and the off-white peep toes (because of course she’s in peep toes) are by Gucci.
The outfits can be viewed all week in the Star Lounge and in the tent’s main lobby video clips of the movie can be seen along with the new luxury entry level GLK SUV Mercedes Benz (as driven by Samantha in the movie) and the luxury S-Class Sedan (as driven by Mr Big). The Bryant Park tents will serve as a backdrop in several scenes of the movie.
Patricia Field was giving no clues away about Carrie’s big day gown, except to say it will be ‘a very ornate cupcake wedding dress.’
I’ve come this far so may as well keep talking, Patricia Field’s prediction for trends inspired by the movie are studded belts and Dior extreme gladiator sandals – Carrie, of course, gets to wear them both!
