Pop and Buzz are at the ABC TCAs and found out some juicy news! We're all looking forward to the much talked about Sex and the City movie partly because we love the work of the one, the only, costume designer: Patricia Field. Well, she is on board to dress the hottest new foursome in ABC's new show, Cashmere Mafia. Here's what Lucy Liu had to say about the amount of effort that goes into their wardrobes:
Patricia Field is somebody that we were lucky enough to have come onto our show. She has an incredible talent for putting together pieces and making them look like art. She never repeats an outfit, as she said in my fitting, and she also puts together things that you would never imagine. I mean, she could put, you know, something from the 80s, put a modern belt on it, and put some shoes, with a purse form the 70s and the look looks great. And she also goes with what she thinks the actors are like and what she's seen of our work and how we move and how we -- you know, how we like to illuminate the screen. And so she sort of puts that in conjunction with what we are working on to create a new look. And because she also did "Sex and the City," which I know that a lot of people will be comparing the two shows, she knows what not to repeat. If anything, she's going to want to start something completely new because that's who she is. She doesn't even like to repeat her own work. So that's the one thing we are graced with in terms of fashion, is her. I think we can just kind of show up and have her throw anything she wants on us.
Sounds like Lucy knows she will be compared to Carrie Bradshaw but she'll most likely be setting her own trends thanks to Patricia's amazing skills. And, we can look forward to Pat delivering beyond the creativity we all grew to love on SATC! Bring it!
