Sex and The City Movie 2

Media: Sex and The City 2  (2010) Michael Patrick King

The fabulous four leave their glamorous lives in Manhattan and set out on a journey to Abu Dhabi (United States Emirates).  We see them laugh, cry, shop, and celebrate decked out in fantastic couture by only the top designers.  Some say this movie was a bust, but if you go into it with an eye for fashion, you will not be disappointed.  SATC 2 was loads of fun to watch and quite the movie for the fashionista.

Art: Window Displays

During the premiere of SATC 2 Bergdorf Goodman had an extraordinary window display of some of the movie’s epic moments.  The manikins were covered in glorious designer outfits with incredible backstage sets to match.  Patricia Field styled the marvelous windows that were later photographed by Julia Chesky. Take a look!

Design: Inside Carrie and Big’s Apartment

SATC 2 production designer Jeremy Conway and set decorator Lydia Marks created a stylish apartment for Carrie and Big.  The space includes masculine and feminine elements with interesting wallpaper patterns, bright colors, and unique fabrics.  Here are some photos: 

 And, of course, pictures of Carrie's adorable bachelorette pad:

Inspired by the Moroccan theme of the movie, I chose to explore the realms of Middle Eastern décor and found some beautiful pictures of exotic, ethnic-style spaces.  Enjoy!

The Social Network

Media: The Social Network (2010) David Fincher

The Social Network explains the creation and history behind the world’s most revolutionary social networking web-site.  It does a great job realistically portraying how this Facebook phenomenon came to be.  Fincher really draws you in by completely showing the characters’ vulnerability.  The acting is excellent and truly believable.  For me, it was interesting to watch a movie about the web-site mostly everyone of us goes on several times a day.  It makes you look at Facebook in a different perspective.  I enjoyed this movie a lot and liked how the characters were portrayed; however, the ending was a bit disappointing.  Overall, it was a solid movie that told the real story about Facebook.

Art: Facebook Graffiti

Graffiti is one of the most popular applications on Facebook.  Users can put their artistic talent to the test by drawing anything they’d like.  It works by using the color palette and design utensils provided.  It is pretty fun and definitely really cool if you’re good at it.  My favorite part of the app is how you can play back the process of how the artist drew the graffiti and watch the true piece of magic come to life! Check out these amazing graffiti drawings done by extremely skilled Facebook graffiti artists.

Design: Dorm Room Décor

As the majority of The Social Network takes place at Harvard, I thought of incorporating fun photos of dorm rooms.  For me, it is really important to decorate my dorm room a certain way that makes it feel warm and homey.  After class all I want to do is go back to a nice, clean, and comfy room.  Here are some amazing pictures of really unique and innovative dorm rooms. Take a look:

Modern Family

Media: Modern Family

This ABC comedy is my favorite show on TV. Created by Christopher Lloyd and Steven Levitan, Modern Family is a mockumentary of three, very different, families that are all related to each other.  Lloyd and Levitan have done an excellent job producing a hilarious show full of love, laughs, and tears.  If you have not seen an episode yet, I strongly recommend watching immediately!

Art: The Family Portrait

At the end of season 1 of Modern Family, the entire group gets together for a family portrait.  Obviously something goes wrong and everyone ends up covered in mud making it the most adorable picture yet.  It inspired me to find some other pictures of family portraits and what I discovered were hysterically awkward family portraits. Take a look! All photos brought to you be awkardfamilyphotos.com

Design: 3 Different Modern Homes

The homes that are used for each family are all beautiful and well decorated.  Set decorators Amber Haley and Christopher Carlson do a great job of creating three very distinct looks to match each family’s personality.

One of my favorite characters on the show is Manny Delgado (Rico Rodriguez).  Manny is absolutely adorable and the cutest Mama’s boy there is.  He is a true romantic at heart and some might say he’s a 40-year-old man trapped in an 11-year-old body.  Not an episode goes by that Manny fails to make me laugh :)
