For die-hard fans of Sex and the City, attending a screening of the long-awaited sequel film necessitates more than a pair of comfy pants and a box of milk duds — it’s a girls’ night out experience.
Across Vancouver tonight, women will be donning heels and clinking martini glasses at Sex and the City-themed parties before hailing cabs to the theatre to catch the sequel based on the hit HBO show.
In celebration, Shelley Klassen, designer and CEO of Blushing Boutique, is hosting a soiree tonight that includes some of Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte’s favourite things — designer shoes, makeup, summer dresses and even rabbit vibrators.
“And cosmos, of course,” added Klassen.
Fifteen guests will receive a movie ticket and limo ride to see Sex and the City 2 on Saturday.
“(The show) is so much fun,” Klassen said. “We, as modern-day girls, can relate to it … It’s (about) these really strong-minded, independent women. I think we’re all a bit like all the characters.”
Today and Friday, the Academic, Cinema and the Granville Room pubs will be giving all guests with a ticket stub for the Sex and the City 2 a complimentary cosmopolitan.
There will also be a Best Carrie Bradshaw Outfit competition, with the winner receiving a $100 gift certificate.
“It’s a (chance) to celebrate women and fashion,” said Klassen. “Just a gaggle of girls having a blast.”
