Strap on your Manolos: Sex is in the air outside Radio City Music Hall.
Starting early Tuesday morning, fans lined up around the pink carpet for a glimpse of their favorite Sex and the City characters – and fashions.
Set to commence at 6 p.m., the arrivals will be a who’s who “as glamorous as the Oscars,” according to one movie publicist. The lights go off at 7, and following the film’s highly-anticipated N.Y.C. premiere, the crowd will continue to the Museum of Modern Art for an after party.
Adding to the glamour will be Swarovski, which is providing over a half a million dollars worth of sparkling decor, including 10,000 crystals for the pink carpet and more than 500 crystal heart ornaments to adorn the trees in the garden at MOMA.
Even later is the cast and crew’s after-after party in The Carlyle hotel’s legendary Bemelmans Bar and will feature a signature cocktail in honor of Sarah Jessica Parker’s character. Here’s how to make one:
2 oz. Don Julio Blanco Tequila
1/2 oz. X Rated Passion Fruit Liquor
3/4 oz. Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
3/4 oz. Cane Sugar Simple Syrup
Shaken, serve straight up in a martini glass rimmed in hot pink sugar, garnished with a lime wedge.
