And for the red carpet homecoming the film's stars, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Kim Catrall and Kristin Davis pulled out all the stops.
Even Oscar winning actress Jennifer Hudson, who has a small role as Carrie's assistant in the film, followed the leading ladies metallic theme.
SJP was resplendent in floor sweeping, silvery- green Nina Ricci, while Kim Catrall chose a similar shade of metallic green by British designer Vivienne Westwood (again) as she did for the film's world premiere in London two weeks ago. Kristin Davis wore a gold dress from Donna Karan - the quintessential New York label, while Cynthia Nixon chose a show stopping white dress from another American designer, Narcisco Rodriguez.
The fashion really is the star of this movie, and with over 300 wardrobe changes in the film, we're glad we finally get the chance to see it tonight.
