Wearing a bright yellow Valentino gown that alter-ego Carrie Bradshaw would certainly approve, Sarah Jessica Parker was "excited and nervous" at the chandelier-lined blue carpet for the premiere of Sex and the City 2 Monday night.
It's a "once in a lifetime experience," Parker said as she met throngs of fans lining the street outside New York's Radio City Music Hall.
Even with the rest of the leading ladies, Kristin Davis (in Jean Desses for Decades), Kim Cattrall (in Naeem Khan), and Cynthia Nixon (in Carolina Herrera) rocking glamorous gowns as well, Parker, insists that the success of SATC isn't just about the clothes.
"You can't hang your hat on fashion forever," she said. "I think people want a substantive story that is meaningful whether they relate or not, and they want to hear women talk about things that are important to them besides their desire to wear a pretty dress. [What's] so unique about these characters is that you can do both."
