We are getting closer and closer to the Sex and the City movie premiere (yay!), and we have yet to hear from the entire cast. Next up is Kristin Davis, aka Charlotte York. She was traditional, loved simplicity, and never wore anything too avant-garde. Still, her sweetness won us over, no matter our style preference. Here, Kristin dishes about her on-screen wardrobe, what she got to keep, and how her character's style has evolved.
Did Charlotte break out any new fashion?
She was never a rule breaker. She updated a little, but I wouldn’t call it a breaking of any rules. Pat is a very creative woman as we all know and really felt strongly that all of the girls would be updated in a way that would reflect where they were in life. So my silhouette is a bit more simple, a little less bows and flowers and things that she used to wear. And she wanted to try, and this is obviously in one’s fantasy life, a little bit of 1970s Jackie O – the sunglasses and on.
Were you excited about the outfits?
Yeah. It sounds so surface-y, but back in the real world we have been in for the last couple of years, you go to your fitting and you’re like, oh dear. Because we were just spoiled, spoiled, spoiled. Sarah had actually emailed me after hers [fitting] because she had actually had a little, ohhhhhhhh reaction, and she was like, wait until you get here. So I was kind of like, OK, I’m ready, and you walk in and there’s literally everything, tables of bags, tables of shoes, just a warehouse of literally every couture sample that is even remotely available. It really is quite something, and we could never do it without the support of the designers because even though we have a very lovely budget from New Line, it's just not possible.
