Favorite Fashion Movie: Sex and the City 1 & 2

Sex and the City began as a column that Candace Bushnell wrote for the New York Observer back in 1994.

The snappy vignettes were a mirror held up to a certain type of New Yorker that reflected vanity, lust, loneliness, insecurity, and overwhelming arrogance. Readers thought, ‘Who says and does these things?’

Fascination with Candace’s adventures among the NY singles set led to a book, and then the mega-hit series that focused on characters Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda.

Although there was a distinct lack of ethnic diversity within this line-up, the Fab Four became a touchstone for women and gay men around the planet.

Their words, their actions, their apartments – and most of all, their clothes – caused us to become obsessed, and we couldn’t stop watching for 8 seasons.

Sex and the City touched off a trend towards labelism and massively conspicuous consumerism, and fed the coffers of Manolo Blahnik to bursting.
