《Lipstick Jungle》

已被女人供奉上神壇的經典劇《Sex and the City》成功之後,世界各地都不停開拍類似的劇種和電影,真正成功了的暫時只有《Desperate Housewivies》(《DH》開拍時已言明是以《SATC》做藍本和參巧),不成功的更多如恆河沙數。終於,連 NBC 電視台都要滲一腿了,還買到《SATC》原著作者 Candance Bushnell 的其中一本暢銷書做劇本,Bushnell 並出任這套劇的 executive producer。



2008年開季就有新劇《Lipstick Jungle》,我昨日看了第一集。

正如這套劇的宣傳語所言,「These women aren't looking for Mr. Big, they are Mr. Big.」。劇中的三位女角都是現今社會上的女強人。《SATC》裡面四位女角的職業已經足夠令不少的平凡女人豔羨,《Lipstick Jungle》裡面的則再誇張一點。



Nico 是暢銷雜誌的 chief editor,一心想要向上爬成為集團的 CEO。已婚,丈夫是考古學學者,婚姻生活沉悶,第一集中就有婚外情。



Wendy 是荷里活電影公司的製作人,擁有非常成功的事業,但因此就失去了婚姻,育有三個小孩,第一集中她的「大食懶」老公向她提出離婚。



Victory 是三個之中較年輕漂亮的一位,fashion designer,分店遍佈全球。事業上因為最新一季的設計劣評如潮,遭逢滑鐵爐,還得失了日本大客 (只有這部分最真實)。事業失意,愛情得意,有個超級富豪看上她,第一集他們初見面後已是打得火熱,頂,有 private jet 接送o添囉,誇張到癲。

看了第一集的感覺都還可以,配樂選用上很多我喜歡的歌如 Amy Winehouse 啦,Corinne Bailey Rae 啦,但劇情仍稍嫌太超現實得過了頭,而且服指做得不好,只有 Victory 的衣服較像樣 (劇照拍得不好,她於劇中的服裝確為較漂亮),Wendy 和 Nico 穿得像 Marks & Spencer 廣告裡面走出來咁囉,好心就轉過個服指啦,妖。請得 Candance Bushnell 怎會不一拼請埋 Patricia Field 的呢?

that's because Patricia Field is working on a new show, Cashmere Mafia which will soon air in the States.
There are articles written about the show on various magazines and it looks like the actresses, including Lucy Liu, are very well styled.
I am sure you will like how the actresses dressed in Cashmere Mafia

我印象中o既Brooke Shield 重停留係青青珊瑚島果時

叫佢做一個事業形女人總係覺得唔夠 convincing.
