Sex and The City Arrives at the Fashion Capital

The other day I went to Chadstone shopping centre (which I believe is the largest shopping centre here in the Southern Hemisphere), for a little retail therapy.

Although I was never a massive fan of the TV show, I did enjoy watching the two movies so I thought I’d also take the opportunity to have a look at the Sexy & The City Exhibition which was held in a large square in the Luxury precinct around the shops of  Chanel, Burburry, Jimmy Choo, Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Tiffany’s.

The Sex & The City Exhibition is a world exclusive exhibition, with the costumes curated by the show’s own Academy Award nominated and Emmy Award winning costume designer Patricia Field.

The exhibition showcases 20 iconic outfits from Carrie’s voluminous Vivienne Westwood wedding, Samantha’s slinky black CD Greene dress she wore to Carrie’s rehearsal dinner, Charlotte’s Oscar de le Renta Mexico maxi and Miranda’s amazing Julien Macdonald frock she donned at Stanford and Anthony’s wedding.
Sorry in advance for the picture heavy post..

And finally, of course, The Wedding:

The dresses were certainly amazing. Although I was a little disappointed with Carrie’s wedding dress…and to quote to women who stood next to me at the time "it looks like an unmade bed"….LOL, what a funny comment. But in all honesty, while the dress was obviously lovely, I personally did not think it was that nice, and worth the more than likely huge fortune it is worth!
Which dress was my favourite....well the Versace Couture dress is obviuosly gorgeous, but I also have a thing for the monochrome, so I really like Miranda's Maggy London dress..

The Sex & The City Exhibition will be at Chadstone Shopping Centre until 31st March 2013.

What do you think of this exhibition? If you are in Melbourne, do you plan to go have a look? Which dress is your favourite? What do you think of Carrie’s wedding dress? And were you even a SATC fan?
