First thing’s first – I MUST see it again. ASAP.
Overall, it is a great celebration of fashion, colors, trends setting, stunning shoes and lots of makeup. I recognized a lot of Halston in action, which fitted perfectly to the transforming wave in the fashion industry towards wearable fashion, a motion I respect very much.
It’s finally about summer and happiness, no more black-white-gray shades. It’s funny to read myself writing this, as I was all into these colors for so (too many, actually) many years. Thank you, Gos of colors and aging, for finally changing my mind. The movie was full with great reds, gold, bronze, orange, pink. green (lots and lots of greens) and white, of course, because no summer time can start without it.
I’ve found two major differences between the first Sex And The City and the second -
1. The budget. The second film’s fashion budget goes a little above 10 million dollars. Now, that’s a lot, and it shows alright!
2. The humor. The second movie is so so funny. I haven’t laughed like this in a long time! It’s pure health and also great for your complexion. I personally guarantee it! I wasn’t expecting it to be this funny, but it’s just hilarious, really
What also stands out (hands down for this one, seriously) is the emphasis on interior design. All the apartments, hotels, and basically everywhere this movie was shot at was just beautifully designed.
Before I share some of my favorite looks taken from the movie here, I’d really like to say something about this movie’s reviews – people, lighten up please. This movie is not about politics nor being rich, poor, realistic, racist or any other serious matter as these. It’s a fun, happy movie, filled with great style, beauty and humor. If you treat it this way, hey – you might even enjoy it and have some fun, because that’s what it’s all about. Leave the top-of-the-world’s problems to another time, I personally guarantee you that it’ll all be there waiting, for a long time.
Here are some of my favorite looks taken from the movie:
and for some inspiration, I’d like to share some of Halston’s Fall 2010 collection, as it was a big deal shown in this movie (just in case you haven’t noticed ). The message, in which I’ve been swearing for the last year, is – forget black, simply because it doesn’t exist anymore. Gone, vanished, not legal to stick to anymore. Got it?
There, I’m all done. I hope you liked it!
