According to Entertainment Weekly, the sequel to last spring’s SATC movie is set to start filming this summer.  Although none of the four stars have formally signed a contract, all are said to be on board. 

It will be interesting to see if the girls will be touched by our real life economy.  I’m curious to see if any of the girls have joined the recessionista crowd or how Big’s investments are doing.

Fans of the acclaimed AMC show Mad Men will be thrilled to hear that costume designer Janie Bryant is developing her own clothing line.

Bryant who was nominated for a 2009 Costume Designers Guild Award (and should have won) inspired designers Michael Kors and Peter Som’s fall 2008 collections with her 60’s style pencil skirts and suits.

The collection is reported to be more contemporary and reflect the designer’s southern roots.  The line is currently being finalized and Bryant teased “I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I’ll have news in the next couple of months.”  I can’t wait. [Heard On The Runway]
