Style File: Sex and the City
Break out your Manolos and Jimmy Choos. The premiere of the "Sex and the City" movie is just days away. You don't have to live in the Big Apple to be as fabulous as the foursome. In tonight's Style File, Seven's Belkys Nerey shows us how to sex it up in the Magic City.
WSVN -- All the "Sex and the City" action may take place in NYC, but there's plenty of sex appeal right here in the MIA.
At Oxygene Boutique in Bal Harbour you can snag some of the jewelry worn by Sarah Jessica Parker, a.k.a. Carrie in the new movie.
Shayne Cohen, Oxygene: "Definitely these are the hot pieces to get right now."
Designer Itay Malkin, who splits his time between Miami and New York, is making black diamonds-- the new way to shine.
His new collection includes stunning earrings and rings, but it's his dark necklaces that got the attention of Sex's stylist Patricia Fields. Three of them were featured in the movie.
Itay: "It is very exciting to be involved in such a hit movie and big project."
In true SJP style, the star even had Itay add this little gold chain to one of the necklaces she wore, so it would stand out on her skin.
Itay: "It's very sexy. You can wear it with jeans and T-shirt, and you can also wear it in black tie event."
If you want to look like your favorite character, Van Michael Salon on Lincoln Road is ready to sex you up.
Leslie Mnsell, Van Michael Miami Salon: "I think it would be fun to come in with your girlfriends and everyone have a different look."
Owners of the celeb salon have created four beauty packages that include hair and makeup designed after the show's main girls. Get carried away with Carrie.
Leslie: "She had that big beautiful curly hair, and so we're doing partial highlights on blond hair, a style that really enhances the curl."
Or go sultry like Samantha.
Leslie Munsell: "Samantha is the sex pot. She has bed head hair. Her hair looks like she was up for a little romp, and then a beautiful red lip."
Stop by vintage boutique C. Madeleine's on Biscayne Boulevard to complete your look. The boutique's clothes were even used in the original Sex and the City TV series.
Madeleine Kirsh, owner, C. Madeleine's: "C. Madeleine's personifies sex and the city."
From power suits to bold and bright dresses, you can walk the streets of Miami looking just like the fab four.
Best part of the package deal at Van Michael's, you get two tickets to the movie.
