Hence, watching Patricia Field work, turning lifeless plexiglass bodies into something glamorous and vibrant is like seeing magic. Choosing the clothes first, Patricia Field then chose the accessories from sunglasses to shoes to belts that will go with the outfit.

The hair is done last. Wigs, which were pre-styled, to be the same as the way Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte wear their hair were used. Final styling was done on site.
