Garish Eighties flashback for Carrie and co

Thursday September 10, 2009

The new Sex And The City movie will surely bring with it the gorgeous designer frocks and towering heels that we have come to expect from the show.

But looking at these outlandish Eighties costumes the girls may have something slightly unusual up their sleeve too.

Ditching their usual chic style, Sarah Jessica Parker and co-star Kristin Davis stepped out in character with a - quite literally - hair-raising look this week.

SJP's get-up mirrored Madonna's Like A Virgin era, with layers of black lace, a bodice and tutu skirt.

While Park Avenue princess Charlotte went for a country club look, complete with a pastel sweater slung over her shoulders.

Cynthia Nixon's makeover was perhaps the most extreme transformation, with a bowl-cut hairstyle and unflattering skirt suit teamed with trainers and pulled-up socks.

Bombshell Kim Cattrall's gear was equally entertaining, as she rolled back the years in snakeskin trousers, patent ankle boots and a permed platinum wig.

The scenes suggest the movie includes the moment Carrie Bradshaw moved into New York as an 18-year-old in the disco era.
