Swooning in London City

So the Sex & The City premiere went down in Leicester Square yesterday, and where was I? Stuck at home, minding my pesky toddler, while watching BBC2's Teen Mum High. Oh the life of the fabulous! I tried in vain to get tickets to the glitzy screening, but my attempts fell flat. But then again after seeing this morning’s pap shots, I don’t feel as if I’ve really missed out on too much. Talk about land of the living Z Listers. I mean, Alex Curran?? Not to take anything away from the fab four though - they looked delectable. SJP decided to keep it British by opting for a stunning lime green dress by Alexander McQueen, topped off by a quirky headdress by Philip Treacy. There’s been a lot of mocking in the press with regards to the spectacular head creation, but I loved it. I thought it was very fitting of the quirky dress sense of Carrie, and gave real SATC fans a taste of what to look forward to in the film. Cynthia Nixon looked amazing in her elegant black gown with daring neckline, and Kim Catrall stayed true to her sassy onscreen alter ego in her figure hugging Viviene Westwood red number. The verdict is still out on Kristen Davis's vintage gown - yeah or nay?

But most importantly, word on the street is the film lives up to it's hype. Roll on May 28th...

I thought they all looked wonderful. I agree the premiere looked like a wash out. I expected some serious celebs to turn up and we get a bunch of nobodies. The only highlight were the hordes of people there. Still I am really looking forward to seeing the film and I am even more glad that I bought my DVD set a few months ago before the prices shot up. They have gone up from £49.99 to over £100.

I know, right. No Kate Moss, Naomi C, Victoria Beckham etc - how strange. Did you go down there? I was really tempted but decided against it in the end. A friend of mine was telling me that her sister's boyfriend was trying to book tickets for her and was told there was absolutely no availability for the first couple of nights. Can you believe it?
