Last week, SJP and the girls hit the DVD launch party of “Sex and the City” at the New York Public Library. Sarah showed off a new set of bangs, what do you think of them?

Finally the movie we all loved and adored is coming to DVD!
DVD Special Edition: Disc 1 contains an extended feature film version (12 additional minutes, 157 minutes total) with extended commentary with director Michael Patrick King.
Disc 2 contains a digital copy of the movie plus extra content featuring “Conversation with Sarah Jessica Parker and Michael Patrick King”, “Fabulous Fashion of SATC”, Deleted Scenes and Fergie interview.
As light and frothy as the Vivienne Westwood wedding gown that’s an unofficial fifth star, the film version of Sex and the City is both captivatingly stylish and sweetly sentimental. Viewers who loved hanging with Carrie Bradshaw and her three pals during the series’ TV run will feel as though no time has passed. Except that it has: Carrie and Big are poised to make a Big Commitment; Miranda and Steve are facing the breakup of their wonderful family; Charlotte and Harry have added to their brood; and Samantha (are we sitting down?) has been devoted to hunky Smith for five full years. Still, in all that time, the women’s style, conviviality, and appetite for bons mots have only grown. When practical attorney Miranda learns that Carrie is considering moving in with Big (in possibly the coolest apartment in Manhattan), she can’t help but frown in that but-you-might-lose-everything way. Carrie’s retort: “For once, can’t you feel what I want you to feel–jealous?!” The cast is spot-on, as always. Sarah Jessica Parker is effortless as the angst-ridden yet practical, stylish yet vulnerable Carrie. Kim Cattrall is deliciously decadent as Samantha, but she’s wiser now and knows herself and her needs for a real relationship. Kristin Davis, as Charlotte, has quietly become the most gorgeous among the beauties, her sleek presence both winsome and sophisticated. And Cynthia Nixon (Miranda) shows nuance as a woman torn between betrayal and grudging hope. Supporting roles include Candice Bergen as the Vogue editor who anoints Carrie “The Last Single Girl in New York,” and Jennifer Hudson, as a starry-eyed, ambitious romantic who represents the new generation of SATC women. Through it all, New York is a benevolent cocoon that envelopes and nurtures the women and their friendships and careers. No matter that none of them appears to have any semblance of “real” family; as long as they have each other, and Manhattan, all will be right with their world.

Financially troubled retailer Steve & Barry’s said that BHY S&B Holdings, a newly formed affiliate of investment firms Bay Harbour Management and York Capital Management, was the winning bidder for the company at a court auction hearing in New York on Wednesday.
The bid of $168 million “to acquire certain assets” of Steve & Barry’s is subject to court approval, but is expected to be completed on Aug. 25. Steve & Barry’s filed for Chapter 11 protection in July.
Under the terms of the purchase agreement, “The majority of Steve & Barry’s 276 stores will continue to serve customers,” per the company. However, the fate of numerous stores in the process of being opened or built, including a new flagship store in New York, was not revealed but likely will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
In addition to acquiring merchandise inventories and transfer rights to Steve & Barry’s store leases, BHY S&B Holdings, New York, “will acquire all Steve & Barry’s intellectual property rights, including its celebrity and brand licenses, and the company’s key facilities, including its Port Washington, N.Y., headquarters, Columbus, Ohio distribution center and certain overseas offices.”
Among the investors in BH S&B Holdings are Steve Shore and Barry Prevor, who co-founded Steve & Barry’s in 1988. The two childhood friends from Long Island, N.Y., initially found success by licensing college and university logos and selling T-shirts and all other items at under $10. In 2006 the company unveiled Starbury basketball shoes, via a deal with NBA player Stephon Marbury, which sold for $14.98. That was followed by a clothing and accessories lines from actress Sarah Jessica Parker called Bitten and an EleVen line from tennis star Venus Williams.
Parker will remain with Steve & Barry’s under its new ownership, at least for the time being, as the company released a statement from her that said, in part, “I am very proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish with the Bitten brand . . . I’m very pleased that Steve & Barry’s will be able to continue to deliver on that mission and look forward to continuing our strong partnership.” Williams also appears to still be aligned with the company as she has worn items from her self-designed EleVen line at Wimbledon and during the Olympics in Beijing. She also is pictured in EleVen wear in ads for the U.S. Tennis Open, which begins on Aug. 25 in New York.
I’ve added over 1,000 photos from appearances Sarah attended in 2004. That took awhile. I still have 2003-1999 to add. They will be added soon. I also made a new gallery layout. This time I decided to use a picture from Sarah Jessica’s Gap winter ad. Hope you like it.
Edit: I finally finished the layout and put it online! Please leave a comment and let us know what you think!

OK, I got a temp. version online. I have already started work on a layout I won’t have it online for a week or two though. Again, I am really sorry about this. I had just put up that layout too. So for now I will still keep you updated on the latest news and media on Sarah. Hope you like this temporary version. 🙂
So as I was upgrading to the new version of wordpress I accidentally overwrote our website’s main layout files :(. Now, I will be spending the next hours trying to fix this and something great will be up very soon! Please be patient with me! I am so sorry about this! However, this will give me time to organize the site as I have been meaning to anyway.
