Following their New York City premiere on Monday, Sex and the City 2 premiered in London today at the Odeon Leicester Square.
Sarah Jessica Parker in Alexander McQueen gown and Philip Treacy hat.
Sarah said, “There’s only one person I could have worn tonight and that was Alexander McQueen. Lee, this is for you. I miss you very much.”

When the first Sex and the City movie came out in 2008, I thought it was a bit creepy because Samantha turned 50 and was still sleeping around, but I guess the message is that women can be strong, successful, and independent without needing to depend on a man.
Although I find the story lines a bit cheesy sometimes, I do enjoying seeing all the beautiful fashions exuding luxury and extravagance with Carrie’s style being my favorite. Here are some photos from the premiere:
This season’s exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, sponsored by Gap along with support by Condé Nast, is inspired by the American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity running from today, May 5th through August 15th focusing on how the modern American woman between the 1890’s and 1940’s has affected women today.
To kick off the exhibit, a gala was thrown at the Met this past Monday hosted by Oprah Winfrey, Executive Vice President of Global Design for Gap Patrick Robinson, and Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Anna Wintour for the main fundraiser event for the Costume Institute with this year raising almost twice as much money as last year! Here are some of the favorite looks from the evening:
