Sarah Jessica Parker leads the SATC mantra that a woman can’t be too rich or too thin. Better to be both than sexy! (Remember, we’re talking a star who is PROUD of the fact that she never had sex in all those years.)
Those of us who celebrate female sensuality got a big smile on our face just now, seeing Sarah Jessica Parker with her costar Christina Hendricks at last night’s New York Fashion Week screening of the movie ‘I Don’t Know How She Does It’.
‘I Don’t Know How She Does It’
Of course the tabloids are fixated on Hendricks’ ‘assets’. And we admit that they are lovely. But there’s so much more in these images of Parker and her costars Hendricks and also Olivia Munn. We also disagree that Hendricks completely overshadows Munn. That reduces Hendricks to her cleavage.
In reality, the ladies in red both overshadow Sarah Jessica Parker because they look sensual and vivacious, not dour and oh so perfectly upper class. They are a jolt of joy in a dreary national landscape.
Ironically, we touched on Sarah Jessica Parker this morning, over at Sensuality News. After she obsessed for a day over a fart, we lost total interest in the show. Presently SJP has nothing to do with the new project described below. It would be great to see Bushnell define Carrie Bradshaw in her own original vision.
As for the reviews of ‘I Don’t Know How She Does It’, the first one from the Wausau Daily Herald says ‘You Won’t Know Why They Made It’. The Telegraph UK cites kinder statements from reviewers, although no one is raving.
Westboro Calls NYC Fashion Week ‘Slutwalk’
As much as we try to separate Sensuality News (keep it lite) and Anne of Carversville (serious stuff fashion to flogging), social conservatives like Westboro Baptist Church are taking their fight anywhere and everywhere they can get press.
The Westboro Baptist Church has come to New York Fashion Week, calling it the ‘Slutwalk extraordinaire.’
The fashion industry tends to slam Westboro Baptish Church for its God Hates Fags mantra, while ignoring its message on female sexuality and fashion. Perhaps Westboro’s claims that the New York Fashion industry makes whores of women will be food for thought.
“The whole idea [of the] fashion industry is to make women look as whorish as possible and men look as effeminate at possible…Put some jeans on and fear God…Forget about all this fashion nonsenses” says Westboro spokesman Steve Drain. “The fashion industry is dominated by fags and fag enablers.” via NYPost

‘Carrie Diaries’ on CW TV
‘The Carrie Diaries’ at Amazon
Candace Bushnell’s prequel to ‘Sex and the City’, ‘The Carrie Diaries’ is coming to CW as a TV series production. The show will be written by former SATC writer Amy Harris and will be executive produced by Candace Bushnell and ‘Gossip Girl’ executive producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage.
‘The Carrie Diaries’ is a young-adult novel that chronicles Carrie’s senior year of high school in a small New England town. Because of its young skew, it was never considered for HBO, which adapted Bushnell’s anthology book Sex and the City into the hugely popular comedy series created by Darren Star and starring Sarah Jessica Parker. writes Deadline.com
In an April 2010 interview with the London Times, writer Shane Watson noted that Carrie Bradsaw’s ‘Sex and the City’ was milktoast, compared to Bushnell’s vision of Carrie. We should not assume that Carrie won’t be transformed into a young woman with more depth in the new CW prequel, with Candace Bushnell at the helm. It is likely? No. Possible? Yes.
Stylish young women are changing today and many no longer believe that their value as women is determined by the Manolo Blahniks in their closet. The fizzle of post S&TC production confirms our viewpoint, which is based on research and attitudinal demographics.
