Manolo disses Sex And The City!

08 September 2009

Doubtless, there is currently some kind of unholy scramble among fashion designers to ensure that their clothes get into the wardrobes of the lead actresses in hotly-anticipated movie Sex And The City 2 (see today’s Grazia for an exclusive story on the cool new label that is the first to be worn by Carrie Bradshaw). We can only imagine the bribes, the tears, the deals, the anguish and the celebrations that the movie’s stylist, Patricia Field, must be encountering (btw, how is that not a fly-on-the-wall doc yet?). Who wouldn’t want their merch to feature on the world’s most hyped, most glamorous, most full-on fashion film?

Manolo Blahnik, that’s who. Carrie Bradshaw might be the most famous fan of Blahnik’s shoes, but, shockingly, it seems the shoe designer is no longer a fan of SATC. According to website Contactmusic, Blahnik has said ‘..if people talk to me about Sex And The City, I get sick. The taxi drivers recognise me now. It becomes too much and I don't feel comfortable. I have never wanted to be a celebrity designer.’

But he does admit that the movie helped boost his company’s fortunes. Referring to the royal blue satin Manolo Blahniks that played a pivotal role in last year's movie (the shoes helped Carrie feel at home in her new apartment, and even brought Big and Carrie back together), he said, ‘well, we had a very good year last year, thanks to those stupid satin shoes. That shoe saved our company.’ We have a feeling Carrie won’t have to give up her favourite shoe addiction just yet...
