New York...concrete jungle where dreams are made of...

Last night the premier of SATC 2 took place in Manhattan, signalling the countdown to the release date of the movie on the 27/28th of May. Unlike the original SATC movie which was premiered in London, this time the girls stuck to their roots by premiering it in the Radio City Music Hall in NY.

But whatever, what you and I are really interested in is the fashion. I loved SJP's lime green Alexander McQueen dress and the gorgeous Philip Treacy hat she wore to the first premier in 2008, so it was always going to be a hard dress to live up to.

SJP wore a citric colour again, this time its a lemon colour and the designer is Valentino. I love the one shouldered detail and the way it flows and the colour, but I still feel her Alexander McQueen frock beats this Valentino one hands down. Don't get me wrong, I would treasure that dress if I had it in my wardrobe, I just think the Alexander McQueen one is so much more edgier, more Carrie-esque.

Kristin Davis always lives out the two c's in her clothes: classic and chic. And this is exactly what her dress is. It is a vintage 1950s Jean Desses Gown from Decades. I adore this look on Kristin even though it is a pretty simple and straight forward dress, and she is channeling her Charlotte character in SATC, in this dress. Like SJP, she wore minimal accessories and with her hair swept back in an on trend up-do, she looks gorgeous. I much prefer this look to her vintage red Guy Laroche couture dress she wore at the World/London premier in 2008.

Kim Cattrall wore a gold column dress by Naeem Kahn and to be honest I'm a bit iffy about this dress. I don't like how low cut it is and whilst Kim Cattrall is a gorgeous looking women...still not liking the dress I'm afraid. But what do you think?

I just loved Cynthia Nixon's Calvin Klein dress she wore back in 2008 and this year she chose Carolina Herrera, but this dress isn't a patch on the Calvin Klein one. Its a basic dress, not much to say about it really.

So, overall not a great fashion fest for the premier of SATC 2. The theme of the night must have been minimalism and all four of the ladies stuck to this theme rigidly. My favourite? Whilst I love the colour of SJP's dress, Kristin Davis was just on form last night. Gorgeous! I don't really know if I am looking forward to actually seeing the film...are you? I just think that the SATC episodes were perfection. Let me know what you think!
