Carrie look-alikes of all ages, sizes and eras dotted Monday night's Radio City Music Hall world premiere of Warner Bros./New Line's "Sex and the City 2" along with Carrie herself, Sarah Jessica Parker and cohorts Cynthia Nixon, Kristin Davis, Kim Cattrall, Chris Noth and John Corbett.
After playing the romantic fashionista on and off for a dozen years, Parker has no identity issues.
"The beauty is that she's not me and that's what I adore about her," Parker said at the Middle Eastern-style tent after-party at Lincoln Center. "She is this other person in this alternate universe and she gets to live this adventurous, thrilling, messy life."
'Sex' parties in the City
As Andrew Stewart's story Buzz Builds for Sex and the City 2 reported, upscale film circuits are seeing widespread sellouts for the opening weekend of "Sex and the City 2," and even the second weekend at some locations.
Theaters that serve food and drinks are making the film into a social event with themed menus, and bars in L.A., Gotham and across the country tying cocktail promotions into the opening.
Since the Cosmopolitan cocktail might seem a little dated 12 years after the series started airing, mixologists are vying to create new drinks themed around the four friends and their lovers.

With "Sex and the City 2" set to launch nationwide a week from Thursday, Warner Bros. and New Line's femme-driven romp is seeing high advance ticket sales, especially from upscale multiplexes. Pic will benefit from an early Memorial Day weekend opening, making it a five-day weekend.
As with the first installment, femmes are turning the opening into an event, planning Cosmo-soaked escapades for opening weekend.
Gold Class Cinemas has pre-sold approximately 8,000 tickets in the past two months, with some 2,700 tickets for private events. Gold Class is one of several circuits, including ArcLight Cinemas, that will cater (literally) to femme auds when the comedy sequel opens wide May 27.
