Pretty Things Fashion: Sex and the City Premiere

Yesterday I happened to notice that everyone was making such a fuss over what Sarah Jessica Parker wore to Monday night's London premiere for the upcoming Sex and the City movie. Parker, who arrived at the premiere in a sweet Alexander McQueen confection, complete with the most amazing avant-garde Philip Treacy hat, looked absolutely fabulous!


Some said that SJP {channeling Carrie Bradshaw} is the only one who could possibly pull off such an outfit. Au contraire! ...I think there are many people who could have pulled off such a look {and quite often do}, such as Dita Von Teese, Gwen Stefani, Elizabeth McGrath, ...moi {hee hee}... And, I'd even like to clean Amy Winehouse up a bit and have her try this one...just put that exquisite hat right on top of that big ole' mess of hair!

Just in case you are not familiar with the work of Philip Treacy...he's a milliner who's work is clearly part of the fashion world, but his extravagant head sculptures also cross the boundary into visual art. Treacy has designed hats for many haute couture houses such as McQueen, Chanel, Givenchy, Helmut Lang, Versace, Mugler, Anna Molinari, etc... Here's a smidge sampling of his beautiful creations {Watch out...there's some boob showing in these pix}:


...And, here's a close up of the stunning hat he made to go with the Alexander McQueen dress that SJP wore. This towering sculpture is complete with green roses, butterflies and the very same peacock feathers featured on her dress, thanks to Mr. McQueen sending them to Treacy just so the hat would match exactly.... How sweet!



The new Sex and the City movie is being touted as the cinematic fashion event of this summer — a rumoured 81 costume changes for SJP alone! We can't wait!
....Are all you fashionistas ready for it's release on May 27th?

yeah, I didn't think SJP's hat was as big of a deal as everyone was making it. I would want to try it on for fun.. but I think I'd start getting an itchy head after a while :)

I am soo excited to see the film! :)

The dress is truly lovely. The hat, I can see on the runway but not on the streets.

At one point I find myself wishing Kim Cattrell would stop showing off her boobs. Now I REALLY wish Cynthia Nixon would learn to keep hers covered. *heebiesjeebies*
