Stars choose vintage for SATC2 premiere

Sex and the City fever is here again. The plotlines are fun, but the real kick comes from checking out what the girls are wearing. We've been hooked since 1998 - and there is a reason why: wardrobe supervisor Patricia Field's quirky outfits single-handedly introduced vintage styling to a mass audience.

A decade later, the actresses remain true to the vision created by Pat Field. At the recent SATC2 premiere in London, Kim Cattrall chose to wear a stunning vintage Thierry Mugler gown, reminiscent of the John Singer Sargent portrait of Madame X. Kristin Davis chose a ravishing vintage Norman Norell sequinned gown, which she found online from California's fabulous boutique, Decades Inc.

We found the original post on the Decades blog announcing the provenance of this dress here. It is fascinating to see the 50-year journey this dress has taken to arrive on the red carpet at one of the most anticipated premieres of the year.
