If the Shoe Fits: A Sex and the City Look at SJP’s New Nordstrom Line

“I’m someone who is looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can’t-live-without-each-other love” And I’m someone looking for shoes! Beautiful shoes. Sophisticated, colorful, can’t-live-without-each-other shoes. Sarah Jessica Parker launched her collection SJP exclusively to Nordstrom a couple weeks ago and with it, she is realizing a dream that Carrie Bradshaw herself would perhaps never dared to hope for. Not only has she had a hand in designing this line of lovely heels, but it has been created in partnership with the CEO of Manolo Blahnik, George Malkemus. The colorful footwear is...

Girls vs Sex and the City: Can You Even Compare?

Girls vs Sex and the City: Can You Even Compare?

Girls’ four female friends, living in New York City and dealing with their everyday lives, seem to regularly inspire comparison to HBO’s Sex and the City (SATC). But really, beyond the superficial similarities, Girls is NOT the modern day Sex and the City. Another notable, and pretty frustrating, similarity is the absence of any meaningful racial diversity in the casting or story. This is a serious criticism of SATC, and criticism from which one would hope Girls would have learned. The differences between the shows, however, are more pronounced than the similarities. GIRLS Girls is an honest look at a whole cast of misfit...

Sex and the City 3: “There’s One More Story…”

Sex and the City 3: “There’s One More Story…”

Calm down, ladies!  This is NOT a confirmation of a new Sex and the City movie but do keep reading.  In a recent interview with Extra Sarah Jessica Parker aka Carrie Bradshaw got a little “carried away” when asked about a potential Sex and the City 3: “I’ve been saying…there is one story left to tell,” the actress said. “If it is, in fact, the right time and the right place, maybe we should tell it.” Okay, so she didn’t get “carried away” but she did give us a comment which is more than we can say for the past couple of years worth of Sex and the City news. She also went...

The Carrie Diaries & Sex and The City: The Inconsistencies

The Carrie Diaries & Sex and The City: The Inconsistencies

A few weeks ago, The Carrie Diaries, the long-anticipated prequel to Sex and the City, premiered on the CW. The series follows Carrie Bradshaw’s days as a suburban high schooler and the beginnings of her love affair with New York City. And Sex and the City, it is not. The contrast between networks like HBO and the CW should be indication enough – despite sharing a lead character, these shows don’t necessarily correlate. And that’s okay. The two series are meant to connect with separate age groups from separate eras. However, there are some glaring inconsistencies between Carrie’s life in Sex and the City and her life in The Carrie...

HBO President, Sex and the City Star do Lunch

Sarah Jessica Parker, the star of HBO’s hit series Sex and the City was spotted taking an extended lunch with HBO president Richard Plepler yesterday.  After 15 minute of waiting in the lobby, the two broke bread at New York’s Four Seasons restaurant.  For the curious, both of them ordered the risotto with a heaping helping of truffles on top. Unfortunately there is nothing to report with regards to the possibility of a third Sex and the City film, a new series on HBO itself or really anything of substance but SatC fans all over the world should be encouraged by the fact that the relationship between these two powers...
