The clothes-
Wardrobe designer Patricia Field wows us again with colorful, glamorous ensembles by Halston, Louis Vuitton, Dior, Balmain, Valentino, Prada, and so much more. Carrie has a new signature diamond four-leaf clover necklace we fell for almost as quickly as her Christian Louboutins in the opening sequence. In the true spirit of "Sex and the City," most of these items are impractical, flamboyant, and, as noted, perhaps too youthful for the stars to wear, but we love looking at them just the same. We may be even less likely to afford these items in this time of recession, but living vicariously through the girls is a welcome indulgence. less

Last night we attended a special screening of "Sex and the City 2," and despite a few cringe-worthy moments, there was so much to love. If you've been a fan of the series all along, you'll enjoy catching up with Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, Miranda, and the people they hold dear. The girls have come a long way, and just as Carrie once explained, having a great relationship, a great apartment, and a great career all at once can be an extremely difficult feat. We experience some of their more painful, trying moments along with lots of lavish, carefree partying in this new film. Visually the "SATC" sequel cannot be topped, and as expected, the wardrobe never fails to disappoint.



The ladies have noticeably aged since the last movie, and certainly since the series, but gratefully, they seem somewhat enlightened about what this means for them as wives, mothers, and above all, as women. All those moments you were worried about from watching the trailer? They are in on the joke. This is why we think the film works. So without giving away any big spoilers, we present the five things you'll love about "Sex and the City 2."
