A Woman’s Right to Shoes

“Sometimes, it’s really hard to walk in a single woman’s shoes,” Carrie Bradshaw lamented in Season 6 of Sex and the City. “That’s why we need really special ones now and then to make the walk a little more fun.”

Sarah Jessica Parker’s character had a long love affair with shoes, and the saga continues May 27 as Sex and the City 2 hits theaters.

Still, Sex and the City fans don’t have to wait for the film’s release to follow in Parker’s well-styled footsteps. Some of the shoes seen in the film have already made their way to Las Vegas, including Brian Atwood’s gold-studded, lilac suede Locas, which Carrie wears to meet Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha for lunch. Shoe In at Wynn is taking pre-orders for the $800-a-pair shoes, which are expected to arrive later this month (hopefully in time to allow fashionistas a chance to break them in before the premiere).

Parker dons a pair of black suede Giuseppe Zanotti pumps with pink metallic piping in the movie, too—and since they appear while she sings along to Patti Smith, Zanotti has nicknamed the shoe the Lyric. Although the Giuseppe Zanotti store in the Forum Shops at Caesars doesn’t stock the Lyric, they do offer a similar peep-toe platform from the same line (pictured above) for $795.

Meanwhile, the brand that Bradshaw built, Manolo Blahnik, is keeping mum on what shoes will appear onscreen.
