SATC stylist Patricia Field talks Confessions of a Shopaholic style

When it comes to films, last year may have been all about Carrie Bradshaw, but this year there's a new stylista on our radar, and she's stolen the SATC fashion icon's stylist!

Patricia Field, the stylist who shaped the wardrobes of the Sex and the City ladies, as well as giving Anne Hathaway that fashionable

transformation in The Devil Wears Prada, has shaped a new silver screen stylista Rebecca Bloomwood.

Played by Isla Fisher in this year's most anticipated big screen fashion event, Confessions of a Shopaholic, Bloomwood takes a dash of Carrie, a high dose of designer togs, and plenty of colour, for her eclectic label lover's look, which Field reveals was inspired by 'very harajuku' style.

Speaking to People, Field described her latest clothes horse muse, 'This character just shopped her life away. Her wardrobe was massive. Her room was filled with racks and accessories all over the place, and it was like she lived in her closet.'

And while Carrie was all about the vintage-cum-designer mismatch, for Rebecca accessories are key, a style that Field describes as particularly appropriate for the current financial climate.

'Don't buy clothes, buy accessories,' she advises. 'Accessories in general are what really create your look, more so than your clothing. You tell a story with accessories.'
