Why Kim Cattrall kept her heels on during sex scenes in ‘Sex and the City’ – Footwear News
It was a “Sex and the City” reunion on Thursday night in New York. Actress Kim Cattrall was honored at Variety’s Power of Women event where she was introduced by ‘Sex and the City’ creator Darren Star for her work with The Actors Fund.
Patricia Field, the HBO series’ famed costume designer, was also on hand to support Cattrall, alongside Candace Bushnell, whose real-life column served as the basis for Carrie Bradshaw’s character and TV show.
Having worked with Cattrall for years on the original “Sex and the City” series and three subsequent films, Field said his memories with the star live beyond the clothes. “You know what I have to say, it was the relationship we had together that made it fun…and the clothes were fun too,” she told FN on the red carpet.
And speaking of costumes, Field pointed out one of Samantha Jones’ most iconic visuals: her in heels in bed.
“A sexy stiletto heel. Naked in bed. It just added to the sex appeal [of those sex scenes]“, Champ said.
While the designer left the franchise and isn’t working on the “And Just Like That…” reboot, Field has teamed up with Star again to work on Netflix’s “Emily in Paris.” The hit series starring Lily Collins has become one of the hottest TV shows of late – with mixed reviews. Some describe Emily’s look as absurd, over the top, kitschy, but one thing is for sure, you can’t look away.
The colorful, mixed prints and towering heels come as no surprise as it’s Field’s bread and butter when it comes to costume design. She is, however, less impressed with today’s IRL fashion.
“I don’t want to be the bearer of bad news. I feel like it’s not just fashion, it’s even cars. It is either grey, black or white. There is no colored car. There is no color mode. It’s sweatshirts, sweatpants and jeans that are ripped,” she said. “It is, for me, a mentality of depression. And I love fun and positivity and I look forward to happiness [in clothes.]”
At Variety’s Power of Women: New York presented by Lifetime, Cattrall was one of six winners, along with Drew Barrymore, Venus Williams, Camila Cabello, Amanda Seyfried and Queen Latifah.
