In the true style of Sex And The City, the movie book is more like a fashion magazine than a serious read.

The main body of the book focuses on the plot of the film, but there is also a catch up section for the preceding 6 TV series, the making of the film, the premiere and introductions by Sarah Jessica Parker and director, Michael Patrick King.

A bit like a picture book for the grown woman, each page is filled with designer clothing eye candy, and as the book steps scene-by-scene through the plot, there is commentary and insider gossip from the cast and crew. However, if it's the fashion you're in to, then you'll love the head-to-toe guides section where you're shown photographs of each outfit worn in the movie along with information on the designers for each item.

This is the perfect memento for any SATC fan and, although it won't beat watching the film, it will certainly keep you satisfied until the DVD comes out.

You can pick up a copy at HarperCollins or on Amazon now.
