Shoe Buzz: Sex and the City 2 shoe style for less
Sex and the City 2 is finally out today (yay!) and I won’t be braving the theatres on premier day, although I will attempt to check it out this weekend. In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to round up all of the shoes we’ve seen so far that are either in the movie or associated with it (i.e. premieres, etc). Since we know the Sex and the City 2 ladies are always extravagent and over-the-top with fashion – the cost of their wardrobe is said to have been around $10 million – I’ve also found lookalike options that are far less expensive. These are the shoes we’ve seen in the movie photos and info released up until now, some of which I’ve covered in my previous Sex and the City 2 shoes posts, but now you can see them all in one big super-post. I’m sure the movie itself will provide plenty of additional footwear eye candy, so I’ll add more as I see them.
We’ll start with the gold heels Sarah Jessica Parker wears as Carrie Bradshaw in her white dress, which is one of my favorite looks so far. I love the gold and white combo and how the simplicity of the dress allows the shoes to really shine. These appear to be Christian Louboutin Pigalle Strass heels, but they aren’t available for purchase online (the Halston Heritage white dress is available at Neiman Marcus for $325 though). However, I did find some similarly sparkly shoes that are sold for less:
H by Halston Stella gold glitter pumps for $79.95 exclusively at Bakers Shoes. These are also available in silver glitter, multi glitter and brown, white or black leather. Update: Now on sale for $59.99.
Chinese Laundry Ladybug in gold for $79.95 with free 2-day shipping at Endless.
We also see Carrie wearing the Christian Louboutin Bridget Strass in SATC2. These are unavailable online, but we have a close lookalike from Dollhouse:
The gold version of the Dollhouse Tano is available at Dollhouse.com for $54. Or, you can opt for the all black Tano, which DSW offers for $49.95. Get $10 off at DSW with code TAKE10 (must login) until 6/28 and free shipping with code FREESHIP at checkout. Update: Amazon has the Dollhouse Tano in red/black, gold/black or all black marked down to $41.97 with free shipping. Update 2: More similar styles are the Anne Michelle Obscene-14 mesh bootie for $24.80 at Urban Originals and the embroidered cage snake bootie available at GoJane for $27.70 and the Mesh Floral Embroidery Heels for $24.99 at Amiclubwear.
We see the Christian Louboutin Gino t-strap sandal on Carrie with her bright blue dress. Again, these are unavailable for sale online and there aren’t too many close lookalikes that I see. But, these less expensive shoes offer some of the same elements, resulting in a similar look:
Charles by Charles David Racey for $68.77 with free 2-day shipping at Endless.
Betsey Johnson Lavant for $133 at 6pm.
Cri de Coeur Elegance for $100 with free overnight shipping at Endless.
Sarah Jessica Parker looked amazing at the Sex and the City 2 premier in yellow Valentino and dark silver Salvatore Ferragamo double platform heels. This Steve Madden pair provides a nice alternative:
Steve Madden Caryssa for $89.95 with free overnight shipping at Endless. Get $15 off $80 with coupon code STATMNTI for a limited time (see site for additional codes that apply to larger purchases).
Sarah Jessica changes into a black dress and bold Nicholas Kirkwood shoes for the premier after-party. These shoes are sold at Browns, but they are currently out of stock with more coming soon (Update: The version without pink piping is available at luisaviaroma.com for $1,242.40). This is another unique pair that’s hard to find lookalikes for, but these shoes come close:
Cut-Out Colorblock Peep Toe Heel for $30 at GoJane.
The Brian Atwood Loca in lavender is worn by Carrie with her plaid shirt and cropped jeans. The Loca was available at Net-a-Porter for $800, but is now sold out (more stock may be coming soon). Neiman Marcus has the black and antique brass versions available for $800 and Bergdorf has them for $815. If you’re looking for a more affordable lavender studded heel lookalike for the Loca, try this pair:
The Steve Madden Twilitte is available at Steve Madden for $109.95 and you can get 25% off and free shipping with coupon code FF25 until 5/31/10. It also comes in black.
Update: Here’s a Brian Atwood Loca knockoff from GoJane. It’s $29.90 and comes in black, grey or red.
Miley Cyrus makes a cameo in the movie and she’s dressed identical to Samantha Jones, played by Kim Cattrall, even down to their strappy boots. These are the Dolce Vita Marilyn, available in very limited sizes at Endless, but almost sold out completely everywhere. Bebe has a practically identical version, the Bebe Jenna, which is also out of stock (with more coming soon it appears). For less expensive lookalikes, see this post or check out this pair that reminds me of the Marilyn, except in a lighter, more summer-y way:
Guess Blarney for $140 in black or brown at Guess.com. Update: A few more lookalikes: the N.Y.L.A. Webebe at Amazon or Endless for $169.95 or the Charles Albert New 1769 Double Dip in black for $58 at LuLu’s or the Strappy Detail Thigh High Boot for $45.50 at GoJane or the Suede Buckle Strap Heel Boots for $38.99 at Amiclubwear.
The iconic Manolo Blahnik Something Blue shoes make a cameo in SATC2 as part of the shoes in Carrie’s closet. You can get the real deal at Bergdorf Goodman for $945 or try these blue satin lookalikes for less:
Martinez Valero Zenith Blue for $154.99 at Sears.
RSVP Zaza for $99 with free shipping at Zappos.
Charlotte wears purple peep toe platforms in the movie and the shoes help Carrie locate her in a crowded Abu Dhabi market. I’m not sure exactly what kind of shoes these are, but the Paris Hilton Sashay in purple is a pretty alternative that looks quite similar.
You can get these for $69.30 at 6pm.
Charlotte also wears the pink and white Christian Louboutin Very Croise platform sandal (seen at Polyvore). For more affordable shoes that aren’t exact, but have similar design elements and/or colors, try these:
The Shiekh Catwalk 22 in black and white for $25 at Shiekhshoes.com. It’s also available in four additional color options.
Get the same color combo in sandal form with the Guess Knotted platform for $98.95 at Endless. Get $15 more off using coupon code STATMNTI at checkout for a limited time.
Carrie wears a pair of black and blue booties with her green dress that are from Pierre Hardy. I couldn’t find these shoes online, but the blog Better In Boots has some more info/pics. For a less expensive option, try this pair:
Fergie Jolt for $48.98 with free shipping at Amazon.
When Carrie runs into Aiden in the Abu Dhabi market, she wears a Dior t-shirt with a long, full skirt and pink suede sandals. The pink shoes worn by Sarah Jessica Parker are the Manolo Blahnik Lezza, which are unavailable for sale online but you can see a picture of the black version over at Coolspotters. For a similar alternative, try these shoes:
Pour La Victoire Bridgette in fuschia for $163.90 with free overnight shipping at Endless.
United Nude Cup Goddess for $194.95 at Endless.
