SEX AND THE FASHION: "Sex and the City" ignited many fashion trends in its day — Manolo Blahnik and Jimmy Choo among them? With the SATC movie under production, Patricia Field is in the process of making a few more items (particularly shoes) instant must-haves. "Without giving too much away, there is a shoe from Dior that Carrie wears all the time that I am sure will be on fire," Field disclosed. "But even with the TV show, there was no consciousness to endorse a particular brand." Field also has been working on various advertising projects, the upcoming TV show "Cashmere Mafia," and a Barbie-inspired line she is feting tonight at her store — but "Sex and the City," of course, holds a special place in fashion pop culture. "My intention in the movie was to approach it realizing that four or five years have passed, and how have these four girls evolved? So the basic structure is the same, but there are little twists on Carrie that will be an opposite approach from the image we have of her, like a heavier shoe or studs."
BOOK CLUB: Bob Colacello celebrated the launch of his latest tome, "Bob Colacello's Out" on Friday night in the parlor at Chateau Marmont with an appropriately cozy and artsy cocktail party hosted by art and fashion power couple Katherine Ross and Michael Govan. "Every author dreams of having a tired hand," he joked as he autographed books and chatted with old friends Brett Easton Ellis, Betsy Bloomingdale, James Galanos and John Waters. The crowd caused him to get a bit nostalgic: "This is bringing back fond memories of the Seventies and Eighties," Colacello said of the Warhol-era photos, for which he refused to take credit. "Basically the photo editors put the whole thing together, I just wrote a few paragraphs." Colacello is spending more time in Los Angeles researching his latest Reagan book, detailing the White House years, which he said would be complete "in a couple of years."
