As with the television show, in the film the Sex and the City fashions take on a life of their own, almost like a fifth character. Let's take a look at some of the handbags we'll see in the SATC movie.
Fashionistas around the world are talking about the Eiffel Tower bag that Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) is carrying in some of the movie's first scenes. In the series finale, Carrie had followed her lover, Aleksandr Petrovsky (played by Mikhail Baryshnikov) to Paris. Therefore, the Eiffel Tower bag was selected as a sort of ode to this romance.
The Eiffel Tower bag was created by California designer Timmy Woods. The bag is carved from acacia wood, finished with goldtone hardware and adorned with thousands of crystals. This isn't the first time we've seen Carrie with one of Timmy Woods' bags. If you remember the episode where she was carrying a bag shaped like a horse's head, that was another piece from Timmy Woods.
Do you want you own Eiffel Tower bag just like Carrie Bradshaw's? Well it won't come cheap. The Eiffel Tower Bag, which is embellished with about 6,300 Swarovski crystals, is $3000. If you are on a budget, you can get the bag without the crystals for $450.
Don't expect much in terms of how much the bag can hold. You'll be lucky to fit a lipstick and your keys inside. But, as most of the Sex and the City fashions, this bag wasn't designed for functionality.
Throughout the series, handbags were at the forefront as well. In one episode, Samantha (Kim Cattrall) really wants a red HermÃ¨s Birkin bag and will do anything to get it. The wait list for an authentic Birkin (on the show and in real life) can be up to two years and cost well over a $5,000. Samantha uses Lucy Liu's name to try to get the coveted bag. And though her plan backfired, women around the world could definitely relate!
Back to the movie set, let's take a look at some of the many flamboyant and wonderful bags that you will love in the movie.
