Filming for the sequel of the Sex and the City movie began officially on Tuesday and I must admit I am already excited. Patricia Field is once more on top of her game and I’m loving each of the new looks she envisioned for everyone’s favorite columnist Carrie Bradshaw.
Sarah Jessica Parker stepped out onto the streets of Manhattan looking absolutely stunning in a white Halston dress which was completed with gold accessories such as a Chanel gold metal clutch and a pair of uber-glammy Christian Louboutin “Pigalle” gold glitter pumps. Further looks included a purple pleated chiffon dress which SJP rocked with yet another pair of Louboutins as well as an 80s retro look Ã la Flashdance.
One question however remains unanswered: Where are the Manolos?
I noticed a certain trend on the red carpet lately. Celebrities like Jordin Sparks, Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton are more and more stepping away from their usual, steep high fashion items in favor of more budget-friendly, accessible high street stuff. Case in point: Bebe.
Jordin has been spotted wearing Bebe several times already, but seeing her in a $139 satin dress at such an important red carpet outing as the Teen Choice Awards was quite a surprise. The same can be applied to LiLo and Paris who wore a Balmain inspired sequin mini dress to a Maxim event a few days ago.
The question resulting from this is: are celebrities finally affected by the economical crisis just as the rest of us or could it be that Bebe is quite the secret fashion tip among celebs nowadays? Up to you to decide.
Paris Hilton was the first to sport this awesomely cute peacock print dress by Bilingual back in June. The socialite is always all about matching accessories, so it’s no surprise she added loads of blue accessories to complete her look. She decided to do a bit of promo for herself and added gold sequin pumps ($73.60) from her own shoe line to her red carpet attire.
Rachel Bilson followed to wear this dress recently when she was visiting a friend’s house in LA. Rachel wore her trademark black wayfarer sunnies, her beloved green vintage bag and black Trove Tkees flip-flops ($44).
Paris Hilton could’ve won this competition, but she went overboard with accessories as usual and hence ruined her chances of ruling Rachel out. If she would’ve ditched the matchy-matchy jewelry and matched her bag to her shoes, she would’ve looked great, but the black handbag and the accessories overkill cost her the win. Rachel on the other hand was drop dead gorgeous and I liked how she styled the dress casually. So, RACHEL all the way. Do you agree?

Back in April, Vanessa Hudgens has been spotted out & about in Hollywood looking casually chic in a pink floral Myne skirt which she wore with a black tank top, a pair of green-tinted Ray-Bans, a black fringed Antik Batik bag and strappy Dolce Vita flats (more infos on Vanessa’s outfit can be found here). Her stunning Diane von Furstenberg gold pendant necklace was the icing on the cake. Definitely one of my favorite Vanessa off-duty outfits.
Eva Amurri opted for the same floral skirt when she attended a special screeening for Adam in New York. The actress paired her tulip skirt with a matching pink top and grey patent Aldo pumps.
This one’s pretty easy for me. Vanessa looked absolutely fabulous and I loved each item of her casual yet feminine outfit. As much as I try to like it on Eva, I just can’t get over the grey pumps and the matchy-matchy pink top. What about you? Who’s you favorite?
