Though Sex and the City 2 may be receiving less than rave reviews from the critics, HP’s screening of the film on Tuesday night at the Paris Theater was quite the red carpet event.
I was decked out in a dress and bag by Nicole Miller, from her 2010 line, that has not even hit the stores yet, and I had the pleasure of sitting next to Alexandra Lebenthal during the screening. She has a new book coming out in the fall called The Recessionista that I will detail in my next blog. The audience was, of course, filled with celebrities, including such famous faces as Charlotte Ronson, Ivanka Trump, Nigel Barker, Vivianne Tam, and Prabal Gurung. Complimentary popcorn, soda, and candy were provided for our viewing pleasure.
HP’s presence in the film was marked with scenes including products such as the HP Mini 210 Vivienne Tam Edition and HP TouchSmart PC, and HP TouchSmart tm2 notebook PCs.
Following the film screening, VIP guests made their way over to Bergdorf Goodman for the after-party, where the luxury retailer decorated its windows according to the movie theme of the night. Thank goodness for Jeff Kim who styled my hair and outfit for the evening because the women at the party were outfitted in supreme elegance. With Sex and the City’s reputation for fashion, fans showed up in their most glamorous getups, dressed to impress each other. It was a magical night, and I would have expected nothing less.
