At a recent press junket, the stars of the Sex and the City movie spilled everything we want to hear about their characters, on-screen wardrobes, as well as their personal style. I know you're dying to hear what the veteran foursome had to say, but let's first start with newcomer Jennifer Hudson.
Did you take away any new fashion tips?
It was amazing working with her [Patricia Field]. That was an experience in itself, just watching her work. She sits at the desk so carelessly, and just says, give me that, throw that with this, and this with that, and comes up with this huge concoction of a Sex and the City outfit that is fabulous. You’re sitting there like, "OK, I didn’t know you could put those shoes with that and that color with this," and it's just a whole brand new level of fashion to me. It definitely makes you want to experiment and that’s what I try to do.
Are you going to get a lifetime supply of rent-a-bags [from Bag Borrow or Steal]?
You know what? I hope so. I’m thinking if you all write about it, then maybe that will happen!

What was your first designer bag and pair of shoes?
I know my first designer bag was Dooney and Bourke, if that counts. I can’t remember shoes. I have so many bags and so many pairs of shoes I could open a store. I have to move out of myself because I have too many pairs. I wear them if I have to, but I’m not a shoe fan at all. I love bags. My top bags are my Jimmy Choo, my Valentino, and my YSL; those three are my favorites.
Do you do a lot of shopping while you are in NY?
Yes, I do. I have a shopping problem. I need Carrie Bradshaw’s closet, the one that’s in the movie. That’s exactly what I need. And it's still not enough. So I need one just for my shoes, and one for all my clothes. Now I have to move out of my house because I have too many clothes. In this business, you can really only wear it once. So once I wear something, and then it's like, I’ll hold onto this, and then before you know it, it piles up and piles up.
