  • Sex and the City stars go back to the Eighties

    The streets of New York got a retro make-over yesterday, as filming for the Sex and the City sequel went back to the Eighties.

    Ditching the high style we’ve come to expect from TV’s favourite fashionistas, instead Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon delved into a spot of Flashdance chic for their close-up.  

    For Miranda, this meant stepping into the decade’s favourite workwear staple – the power skirt suit. Those matching ankle socks and trainers are entertaining enough, but it’s the bowl cut hairdo and Pat Butcher earrings that really raise a smile.

    Naturally, Samantha Jones’ outrageous fashion sense is perfectly suited to the decade that style forgot, and she rolled back the years in snakeskin trousers, patent ankle boots, a leopard print vest and a studded denim made up her look.

    A frizzy permed ‘do and a walkman at the waist were the pefect punky flashback finishing touch.

    Perhaps most entertaining of all though has to be SJP in her second Eighties get-up. Like Madonna circa Like a Virgin, the ever-eclectic fashionista clearly started young, mixing lace leggings with a tutu, basque, tartan waistcoat and scrunched up headband.

    For Charlotte, the transformation was somewhat less severe, and her country club look – complete with sweater slung from the shoulders – wasn’t miles away from the Park Avenue princess style we’ve come to expect.

    We have to admit – we’re getting more excited by the day. Let the SATC 2 coutdown begin!
