Glee Sarah Jessica Parker
If, like myself, you have watched every episode of Sex and The City and Glee, I advise you to hold onto your office chair: the two are (sort of) becoming one!

This week, the brains behind Glee – Ryan Murphy – announced that Sarah Jessica Parker will guest star in a few episodes of the musical wunderkind next season. Not only that, but she will be playing a “sort of frazzled, eccentric and hilarious” Vogue.com editor!

It screams for the re-introduction of Carrie Bradshaw. SATC fans will remember when Carrie strutted into the Vogue offices – where she was getting paid 50 cents a word (yes, I’m obsessed) – in an asymmettical pinstripe suit from Vivienne Westwood to meet a Vogue Editor/Wintour clone played by Candice Bergen. It is barely a storyline stretch!

Speaking of Anna Wintour, the ice queen herself has been employed to style the wardrobe of Sarah Jessica Parker’s fictional Glee character. I can only expect this is an incredible favour to Anna’s daughter, Bee Shaffer, who works for the company that produces the show. It couldn’t get any more fash-fabulous.

The most excited of my creative juices are flowing. You’re welcome to any of the plot ideas below, Glee writers. You’re ever so welcome.

1. Rachel is sent to the Vogue offices for a make-over.
Say goodbye to your knee-highs and pre-school silhouettes, Miss Berry. You’re now in New York City. Ditch the loafers for Louboutins at the hand of a tutu-wearing fashionista.

2. Santana starts a fashion blog.
To stay in touch with her lady love, Santana starts a blog that is catapulted to international fame. Vogue tries to poach her for their online site. Many musical numbers about life’s crazy twists and turns ensue.

3. Rachel falls in love with Aidan.
Without annoyingly righteous boyfriend Finn by her side, Rachel looks for a similarly small-town homeboy to lust over. The pair bond over a mahogany harp.

4. Mercedes starts a plus-sized riot.
Enraged by the body standards in her September issue, Mercedes flees to New York with the Vogue offices as her target. Who else, in particular, but the pint-sized dot-com Editor? Carrie shall wax lyrical about sample sizes and everyone shall sing songs about being beautiful.

5. Kurt Hummel is Carrie Bradshaw’s assistant.
He falls in friendship lust with her and Stanford, therefore introduces millions of conservative American homes to the fabulous lives of metropolitan homosexuals.

  • The first look at Jeremy Scott for Adidas Spring/Summer 2012 has arrived! As these are the only non-heels I get really excited about (which my shoe blog can confirm), I am in instant animal sneaker love. Thank you, Pablo Olea.

  • Alexa Chung has been talking to Teen Vogue about her “It-Girl Problems“, ie. she spent her entire wardrobe budget for “24-Hour Catwalk” (her upcoming TV show) on a single Balenciaga leather jacket. She joked that she will have “10 episodes to do and nothing to wear”. I wish my problems were this Balenciaga-related.

  • I don’t think Jean Paul Gaultier will be looking forward to any coverage in Vogue any time soon. In a recent interview, the designer decided to bare all in when the topic of fashion films and The Devil Wears Prada came up. Ever wondered what industry insider’s thought of the rumoured Editor in Chief ice queen? In his own words?

    Anna Wintour is a lot more monstrous than she is described!

  • The New York Times put up quite a brilliant article regarding Sex and The City, Christian Louboutin, and how Manolo Blahnik got stiletto status. Check it out here
  • Betsey Johnson Fall Winter 2011
    Time to get your jollies on with Betsey Johnson‘s Victorian-esque Fall/Winter 2011 collection. Though it is years out of production, this is the wardrobe I would expect to see Sex and The City’s Carrie Bradshaw sporting around NYC. Velvet and animal print were omnipresent, including a stronghold on some must-have onesies. Split into two sections, Betsey’s second half was composed of her new line which piece-by-piece retails for under 100 dollars. At this point, the models were traded for employees and friends of Betseyville, including the gorgeous super-blogger Gala Darling, who all wore wigs in the style of Betsey’s quirky tresses. See the top five looks below! View Post

    Carrie Bradshaw Closet
    A retired Long Island businessman recently commissioned a replica of the ridiculous walk-in closet from Sex and The City (the first movie) for his wife and their North Shore mansion a la Carrie Bradshaw. The woman’s 400 sq. ft. guest bedroom was converted into a feature-film worthy closet by SATC set designer Lydia Marks for the low low price of $175,000. (Direct quote: “And it was worth every penny…they made my dream come true!”)

    The closet looks a little something like this:

    • storage for 400 shoes (“The shoe cabinet is very similar to Carrie’s, although our client’s is much bigger.”)
    • hand-beveled mirror strips (“They add a bit of glitz into the glossy white closet, while maintaining the charm of a Park Avenue penthouse.”)
    • frosted glass doors with etched Art Deco patterning
    • custom-sized compartments “to accommodate specific hair dryers, curling irons and flat irons”

    “It was a gift from her husband, who led the charge to get this closet built for his wife because he knew how happy it would make her. His wife, like Carrie, is a smart and successful career woman in her own right.”
