SJP in Valentino
Of course, I was curious to see what the ladies would wear! What designers would they choose? What colors would they wear? Hair up or hair down? These are all serious questions my taffetadarlings!
Kim Cattrall in Naeem Khan
I wondered if SJP would finally wear Halston and would Kim Cattrall wear Wendy Brandes earrings? Well, the answer to both of those questions was, NO. Apparently, Ms. Parker opted for an asymmetric, yellow dress from the Valentino Collection. Ms. Cattrall was statuesque in an ornately embellished Naeem Khan gown and I could find no mention of her jewelry.
Cynthia Nixon in Carolina Herrera
Cynthia Nixon looked impeccable. The sophisticated actress selected a strapless black, body-conscious Carolina Herrera dress -- the epitome of glamour. All of the women looked amazing, but to my surprise I was most taken with Kristin Davis. I suppose that I just associate her with her character, Charlotte, who is a bit of a "girly girl" for my taste. But, Ms. Davis made (in my opinion), the best choice of frocks in her Jean Desses pink chiffon, columnar gown. Her Desses dress was perfectly appropriate since the late designer was born in Alexandria, Egypt and was known for his complex draping that turned out a very refined look.

Ms. Davis' gown seemed to evoke the feeling of the film more so than the others, but all the girls brought their "A game" Monday evening. The one fashion tragedy that I did see was poor Miss Liza Minnelli. WTF?
