Summer in the City - A snippet of an 18-year old Carrie Bradshaw.

Candace Bushnell gives us an insight into how our beloved Carrie Bradshaw made it in the Big Apple in her latest addition to the Carrie Diaries - 'Summer and the City'. We find out about how a seventeen year old naive wannabe writer bravely moved to New York City alone. She befriends young siren Samantha and young activist Miranda and ultimately meets social princess Charlotte. Together these four unique young women strive make their mark in 1980's Manhattan. The Ultimate Summer holiday read - A prequel that finally hits the nail on the head. 

What is truly is making headlines at the moment is the rumours about who will star in the film adaption of the prequel. Sex and the City is an institution! Women everywhere idolise the four ladies - not just the characters but the actresses who played the roles with such charisma and sassiness.  Sarah Jessica Parker has become a fashion icon. I would give anything to saunter through the closet of Carrie Bradshaw! I would even give up a limb! Fashion is supposed to be fun and experimental...

 Kim Cattrall was the combination of sexiness, comedic genius and pure joie de vivre. Also the styling for the hit HBO was always inspiring to me and millions of other young girls out there. Patricia Field was a coveted asset as the premier stylist for the series and the film adaptions of SATC.

Supposedly, younger sister of the infamous Olsen twins- Elizabeth Olsen is a choice for Carrie for the movie prequel as is Miley Cyrus, Blake Lively of Gossip Girl fame could be portraying our beloved Samantha, Miranda may be played by Julia Roberts famed niece - Emma Roberts. And our elegant social princess Charlotte may be brought to life by Disney star Selena Gomez. The press is awash with speculation as to who will be confirmed for the coveted roles, but so far the deal is all up in the air. 

I don't know about you guys but those young ladies have some serious shoes to fill or the backlash could murder their futures in Hollywood.

''When it comes to relationships, maybe we're all in glass houses, and shouldn't throw stones. Because you can never really know. Some people are settling down, some are settling and some people refuse to settle for anything less than Butterflies...''

Carrie Bradshaw: ''Damn! Why is that girl still bothering me?''

Samantha Jones: ''Honey, you have to let it go. If I worried what every bitch in New York was saying about me, I'd never leave the house.''

Even after six seasons, two films we are still craving more... I loved the first film... It has to be said - The Vogue photoshoot was spectacular. Here is one of the best bridal scenes that brings many of our cobwebbed wedding fantasies to the surface
