Sooo!!! After a long long wait "Sex and the City 2" released!! The most awaited movie of the year!! I went to watch the movie with my girls - high expectations, excitement, in spite of bad reviews I knew I could watch it on mute only because its SEX AND THE CITY!!
Half an hour into the movie and my dreams were shattered!!
Beginning with the story... RUBBISH!!! For the first 2 hours I kept waiting for something to happen... everything HAPPENED in the last half hour. No sex (since the Indian Censor Board practically cut out half the movie), No City (why the desert and sand and sand and sand?) I even yawned in the middle of the movie... in the middle of SATC!!
Carrie - If my husband gave me a black diamond solitaire for every guy i kissed, I would have covered half the world by now....what was that about? seriously??
Samantha - U know you are in Abu Dhabi, you can see they take offense if u try to seduce your male counterpart in public, you both stay in the same hotel, GET A ROOM! why the beach? why?
Charlotte - If you have a bra-less nanny and your husband's sprinkling water on her white t-shirt... GET ANOTHER NANNY!
Miranda - Hmm didn't really notice you much in the movie except a few nice dresses here and there..
Acting - SJP why why why were you so over excited to be in the sequel? Why were you hopping around like a new born bunny? And why in the name of God were your breasts pushed up so much through out the movie and shoved right into our faces? why??
Now, the fashion...
DISAPPOINTMENT!! Sex and the City 1 was heaven compared to this one... sorry but who can help comparing? SATC2 did not have one dress or accessory at which my heart jumped!! Except for the Christian Loubotin golden sparkle pumps.. I felt so let down... could have done so much better... But not entirely Patricia Field's fault... she did what the movie required... Never mind...
Heres a look at some of the garments:
Halston Heritage dress by Neiman Marcus along with a Chiristian Loubotin shoes, which I love, a Solange Azagury-Partridge necklace, Aviator and a Chanel clutch.
Emilio Pucci gown. I like. Those glasses!! I want!!!
Dress, Halston. Bag, Christian Loubotin. Pumps, Christian Loubotin. Orange Aviators, Ray Ban. Cuff, Amrita Singh. Jennifer Zeuner Clover Necklae.
Kim Catrall and Miley Cyrus in the same dress. Dress, thumbs up. But did those hideous shoes come with the dress? Miley, halloween's over, those horrendous spikes need to go, now!
I luv Kim's necklace though.
On Miranda - Bottega Veneta Dress. On Samantha - a dress by Patricia Fields, Very very sexy! On Charlotte - Dior all the way!
Like only what Carrie's wearing. Rest scares me!
SJP!!! How could you even agree to wear THAT!! The PANTS!! *Barf* need fresh air NOW NOW NOW
Back to the 80s ?? I like. Especially Samantha! Love that confidence!
And finally, the John Galliano for Dior newspaper print dress from his Fall 2000 collection... Some things are best left in the past... Sure newspaper prints rocked back then... no matter how much even SATC tries, it cannot hope to revive this!! Today, it is simply HIDEOUS!! Sorry SJP!
So thats about SATC2... I apologize for any kind of offense but I had extremely high hopes from this movie... Overall, apart from a few dresses and the golden sparkle shoes, its a thumbs down.
