Kim Cattrall is 56 today, and in our opinion, she's as sexy as ever. We're still convinced that she is Samantha Jones (not a bad thing), so it wouldn't be a true birthday celebration without a closer look at her iconic Sex and the City character's wardrobe. Sure, we've salivated over Carrie's city-girl outfits and were smitten with Charlotte's posh Upper East Sider wares, but a lot of the time, it was Samantha Jones's unforgettably sassy style that left a lasting impression. This was one woman who lived for color, statement jewels, oversize hats, and anything else that was particularly eye-catching. We have to admit: Kim knows how to fully commit to a character. She was never afraid to bare more than a little skin and go the distance as Samantha, which is why we're still inspired by her power suits, slinky cocktail dresses, bold costume jewelry, and vixenish heels. In honor of Kim Cattrall's birthday, here are our favorite scene-stealing style moments courtesy of Samantha Jones.
Now that we've covered Carrie's fresh 'fits, Charlotte's posh ensembles, and Samantha's sexy style, let's pay ode to Miranda Hobbes. As the seasons went on, Miranda showed us how to work a mean power suit, and when she wasn't working, the sleek redhead dabbled in a variety of fun outfits. Who can forget the episode when she wore these denim dungarees? Classic. Check out the rest of Miranda's diverse looks!

Now that you've revisited Carrie's closet, let's continue our Sex and the City 2 anticipation with good girl Charlotte York. She's the quintessential example of a posh lady. Always polite, and more importantly, always dressed to perfection. Tweeds and skirt suits dominated her wardrobe, while elements of tailored casual wear proved that grocery shopping is no excuse to look sloppy. Also enviable were her selection of pretty dresses. From printed patterns to LBDs, Charlotte was the master of sleek sophistication. Click on for more posh looks from Charlotte York!

I can't believe my eyes I'm seeing that Carrie's Studded Belt ($120) is currently on pre-sale at Patricia Field Online. Throughout the entire Sex and the City film, my eyes followed that studded belt more than the actual storyline. While Miranda's wardrobe was a bit over-dramatized, I loved how realistic they made Carrie's. She wore the vintage studded belt in multiple scenes; this was because SJP loved it so much and it actually took on a name: Roger. You have to wait until mid-July if you want it for $120. If you're willing to dish out $250, get one now!
Feast your eyes on this gorgeous Vena Cava Silk Stud Dress ($219, originally $439). Does it ring a bell? This is the same dress (but hers is grey) Carrie wears in the Sex and the City movie where she and Big first start talking about tying the knot. This find and many others can be found at LaGarconne.com. They're hosting a huge sale with items marked 30 to 70 percent off.
Carrie's closet that Mr. Big built for her in the Sex and the City movie was unbelievable. But what I was mesmerized over were her brand new Manolo Blahnik Something Blue Satin Pumps ($895) that she placed on her shoe rack the first time she saw it. They dazzled sitting there all alone, waiting for their Jimmy Choo and Dior sole-mates to join them. In the movie, they cost $525, but in real life, they're more pricey. Not shocking. The reason Big is holding them here is because . . . well, you figure it out!
Carrie Bradshaw and Charlotte York clearly had two very distinct and dissimilar styles. Is it possible that one dress can match them both? Affirmative! I came across a Banana Republic Floral-Print Lady Dress ($150), which at first screamed Charlotte to me, but after some thought, it also screamed Carrie. I closed my eyes and envisioned Carrie borrowing Charlotte's dress because she had spilled wine on her outfit. How would she make it her own? She would jazz up the accessories, using a studded belt, colorful heels, and sequins. Whether you're a Carrie or Charlotte wannabe, make this seemingly ladylike dress your own.
