Screen to Shore: Rent Sex and the City’s Malibu Beach House

Remember that steamy scene from the first Sex and the City movie where a depressed Samantha watches rapt from her balcony, mouth stuffed with guacamole, as her lothario next-door neighbor frolics on the beach with his paramour du jour? Or the one where she lies immobile on her kitchen table, covered in sushi? For a pretty penny, you can rent the Malibu mansion where it all unfolded.

The three-level mansion–turned–movie set is available for monthly rental fees of $55,000 or $100,000, depending on time frame. Wondering what that hefty price tag will get you? Multiple balconies, a chef’s kitchen, a wine cellar, maid’s quarters, a two-car garage, a stunning stretch of beachfront, and a little claim to fame, for starters. Nightly antics not included.

By Jackie Nasser, Rue La La Fashion Director

 
Mark your calendar – everyone’s favorite fashionista, Sarah Jessica Parker, is (finally) launching her own shoe line, aptly called SJP. “I really wanted to bring back the single sole,” explains Parker. The actress, who is collaborating with Manolo Blahnik’s CEO on the collection, says she wanted to create and offer “colors, regardless of the trends, to women in beautiful shapes, and at affordable prices.”

Icon Status: Breaking Down What Makes the Birkin So Beloved

The Birkin's Icon Status

What is it that makes the Birkin so lusted-after? Well, part of it certainly has to do with its careful craftsmanship. But there’s more to it, too.

It’s Hollywood’s fashion darling.
The celeb world has taken a serious shine to the Birkin. It’s said that Victoria Beckham (a.k.a. Posh Spice) has a collection that’s worth over 1.5 million pounds – that’s over 2 million U.S. dollars. Though not all collections are that extensive, the bag is certainly not a stranger to paparazzi sightings.

It’s a pop-culture phenomenon.
The bag is frequently referred to in movies and on TV. And did I mention there’s a whole book about what it takes to snag a Birkin? It’s safe to say that the bag has solidified its place in pop-culture lore.

It’s proof that good things come to those who wait.
Getting your hands on a Birkin takes a special kind of devotion. The (now defunct) waiting list was known to be as long as five years, meaning if you wanted a bag you’d have to really want it. And as they say, you always want what you can’t have.

Last call! Enter our Bag a Birkin Giveaway by tomorrow, March 30, 2013, at 11AM for the chance to win your dream bag.
