Grazia Daily likes to imagine that all the world’s fashion designers sit around together at all times, talking about, y’know, clothes and accessories and things. Well, it turns out that that might be a bit like what actually happens, because at a dinner at London’s faboosh Spice Market restaurant at W London Hotel, hosted by cultural diplomacy body Liberatum and designed to bring together stories about fashion and film, fashion icons Andre Leon Talley, Dame Vivienne Westwood and Manolo Blahnik got together and shared their thoughts about the first SATC movie.
Both Westwood and Blahnik were, of course, involved in SATC 1 – Big gives Carrie a (completely amazing) pair of sapphire blue Manolos in place of an engagement ring, and Dame Vivienne famously dressed Carrie for the wedding-that-never-was (as well as kind-of having a cameo in the film in the form of a handwritten note).
Reminded of Big’s gift to Carrie in the film, Blahnik apparently replied ‘Did he? I honestly have only seen that film once, I think, if that’
To which Dame Vivienne, who famously walked out of the film’s premiere responded by saying ‘well, I don’t think anyone in the world has seen that film twice, have they?’
