• Kristin Davis on her Sex and the City wardrobe fitting: “Sarah [Jessica Parker] had actually emailed me after hers [fitting] because she had actually had a little, ohhhhhhhh reaction, and she was like, wait until you get here. So I was kind of like, OK, I’m ready, and you walk in and there’s literally everything, tables of bags, tables of shoes, just a warehouse of literally every couture sample that is even remotely available.” [Fab Sugar]

Sex and the City stylist Patricia Field calls her own style “very utilitarian” and “comfortable.” Also, Cleopatra is her style icon, “because she was here over 2,000 years ago and we are still talking about her.” She adds, “I love watching Victoria Beckham, Gwen Stefani, and Paris.” That is all so confusing.

He added this zinger during a softball scene: “I’m not going to be distracted by how fat you look in white.” Knowing he came up with that on his own makes us feel like we “get” him a little bit better.
