Sexy Sellout

It’s no secret that Carrie Bradshaw is quite the tastemaker, but even before “Sex and the City 2” opened over the weekend, Brian Atwood’s studded lilac heels — which Sarah Jessica Parker’s character was spotted wearing during filming — were sold out across the country. Net-a-porter.com blew through its stock of the $800 Loca style and last week was promising more pairs would soon be available. Meanwhile, Intermix’s Soho location sold its final pair of the 5-inch pump in the days before the film’s release. While fashionistas are anxiously waiting for shops to restock, “SATC2” costume designer Patricia Field (at right) isn’t feeling any sympathy. “They should have stocked more,” Field said at a recent New York soirée fêting the film’s release. “When did you [last] see a gorgeous pair of lilac shoes? [People see those and think], ‘Damn, I need a pair of lilac shoes.’” Field, who paired black Balenciaga wrap-up stilettos with studded denim shorts for the event — that featured a fashion show of swimwear and accessories worn in the movie — said keeping up with Parker can be quite the challenge. “She just flies down the street in 6, 7, 8-inch heels,” Field marveled. “Her feet never touch the ground.”
