I have heard so much hype surrounding the new, Sex and the City movie opening at the end of the week, but I admit, I can’t wait to see it–SATC has been a “gilty” pleasure even in re-runs. And, let’s face it, SATC has influenced fashion so much that I’m sure it will once again have women running to buy Manolos and name-chain pendants.

eBay Style Director Constance White says: “Style-wise, “Sex and the City” was the most influential fashion program of our time. It’s no surprise that the movie is hotly anticipated by fashion lovers everywhere. Everyone wants to see where the ladies and the show’s fifth character – the fashions – are almost 10 years later.
