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."

Feuding on set? The ladies of Sex and the City say it's a lovefest working together – usually.
"Things just have to be explosive for no other reason than for people's imaginations," Kim Cattrall, 53, tells the June issue of Marie Claire "The chemistry among the four of us is very strong."
Kristin Davis laughs off rumors that she snubbed Cattrall at dinner one night while they were filming the SATC sequel, due in theatres May 27. "[One tabloid story] said Kim and I would eat in the restaurant and not sit together," the actress, 45, says. "The story was that we don't like each other. Ridiculous!"

If there's pressure in Hollywood to be stick-thin, Kristin Davis isn't letting it get to her.
"I have hips!" the actress, 45, and Fitness bikini cover girl says in the magazine's May issue. "I'm never going to be the thinnest actress, and I don't want to be. When you're at peace with yourself and your body, you're automatically more confident."
But that doesn't mean the Sex and the City 2 star doesn't work hard to get toned and fit. Once an avid runner (she used to do seven miles on a beach before suffering ankle injuries), Davis now turns to the elliptical, yoga, Pilates and even some jumping jacks with resistance bands when she's on the road traveling.

Sarah Jessica Parker has come down with a case of PTP – as in "protect the plot" – and the "disease" is spreading to her Sex and the City 2 costars.
"We hope we made a movie that lives up to expectations," Parker told PEOPLE at Las Vegas's ShoWest convention Thursday.
Joined by Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis (Kim Cattrall is working on a play in London), the three, who received the Ensemble Award, refused to give any spoilers about the highly anticipated movie that was filmed in the Moroccan desert.
"We've never laughed harder or talked more or spent more time together," Parker said, adding that the women rode camels in one scene, making for some hysterical outtakes.
"The camels were beautifully trained," she said. "Cynthia and Kristin were on one camel and they had the most grumpy, ornery camel. Ours was so sweet, but then out of nowhere our camel would sit. You have to understand, it's not like a bike and the bike fell over. It's a camel, and the camel would just sit. And when they sit, it's a little like an earthquake. We laughed so hard."

Kristin Davis and her Sex and the City character, Charlotte, may have both been unlucky in love at one time or another, but it seems Davis has now found a match in celebrity photographer Russell James.
"It's been going on for a bit now," says a source close to the actress. "She's very supportive of him – she seems very happy."
On July 20, the pair joined another pal at Katsuya Brentwood for dinner in Los Angeles. James and Davis, 44, sat in an intimate booth, sharing one very small side of a bench, and were affectionate throughout dinner, says a witness. Davis rested her head against his shoulder.

For the next go-round of Sex and the City, Kristin Davis is hoping that her character, Charlotte, has "more dogs – but not more kids."
Even in real life the actress, 44, is leaving the children to her co-star Sarah Jessica Parker, who is expecting twin girls via surrogate just before filming of the SATC sequel is set to start.
"We're very excited," Davis tells PEOPLE about the babies. "I [will] get to hold one, when Sarah is holding the other."

After releasing the star-studded pro-Barack Obama videos "Yes We Can" and "We Are the Ones," will.i.am has rallied Fergie, Scarlett Johansson, and other celebrities for a new mission: to fight global poverty.
The Black Eyed Peas frontman, 33, has written the song "in my name" to support Global Call to Action Against Poverty. The tune encourages citizens to call on their governments to keep their promises to the world's poor.
Says will.i.am: "We can be the generation that ends poverty."

Once and for all separating fact from fiction, Kristin Davis has made it clear that unlike her marriage obsessed Sex and the City character Charlotte York, she is happy being single.
"[In my twenties], I thought I'd never get married. I guess I was right!” Davis laughed as she addressed a crowd at the SKYY Vodka screening of the movie in Hollywood on Thursday.
"I grew up in the South so all everyone talked about was marriage," said the actress, who dressed very much like her sophisticated Upper East Side fictional counterpart in sky-high Christian Louboutin shoes and a sparkling silver and black cocktail dress. "But all I wanted was to move to New York and do theater. And in my thirties, I was busy doing the show so I just didn't have time."

The New York premiere may have kicked off at 6 p.m., but the cast and crew of Sex and the City: The Movie partied 'til three in the morning, with two after parties!
After Sex's big New York homecoming at the Radio City Music Hall and an after party at the Museum of Modern Art, the film's inner circle – including Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Jason Lewis and director Michael Patrick King – celebrated the night away at an exclusive after-after party at The Carlyle hotel.
Around midnight, with husband Matthew Broderick, Parker escaped the MOMA, arriving at the hotel's legendary Bemelmans Bar, which she requested (she had her honeymoon at The Carlyle in 1997). They intimately enjoyed cocktails and mini-burgers before the arrival of some of Parker's closest friends and colleagues.

The Sex and the City foursome created a fashion and film sensation on the pink carpet outside New York's Radio City Music Hall for the U.S. premiere of their movie Tuesday night.
"The best part about making the movie was being back with the women on the set all day every day, and the best part about tonight is being here ... with the fans," Sarah Jessica Parker said as the crowds squealed and waved around her.
Parker wore a glamorous Nina Ricci gown, complemented with dazzling Fred Leighton jewels, as did Kristin Davis, who donned Donna Karan and 19th Century diamonds. Cynthia Nixon chose a Narciso Rodriguez dress, and Kim Cattrall embodied her inner "Samantha" in a low-cut, beaded Vivienne Westwood cocktail dress.
