Fatal Attraction

Fatal Attraction

About two weeks ago Anna and I, the biggest Sex and the City fans you can possibly imagine, went to the Theatre Royal Haymarket to watch Fatal Attraction with Kristin Davis (SATC), Natascha McElhorne (Californication) and Mark Bazeley. We had already watched Sweet Bird of Youth with Kim Cattrall last summer, so when we found out that Kristin Davis was in town this time, there was no way we were gonna miss seeing her perform live on stage. We had to pick up the tickets half an hour early (we were lucky, and our tickets had been upgraded), so there was plenty of time to take a few outfit shots before the play.

Anna is wearing a Mixx shirt, Zara trousers, a Ted Baker coat, Carvela heels, a Louis Vuitton bag and a J Crew necklace. I absolutely love the sleek all black outfit with the baby blue pop of colour. It is such a fierce look, don’t you think? I could definitely see myself recreating it one to one some day. Anna’s style is very classic and feminine with a modern twist, and I admire her ability to accessorize any outfit with the utmost grace.

I am wearing a Zara top, Mango culottes, a Miss Selfridge biker jacket (similar), Zara boots (similar) and a black.co.uk scarf, which was part of my FashionchickVIP prize package. It was a long day after a short night and I looked just as grey as London. To fight the dreariness, I decided to inject some colour into my otherwise monochrome outfit. When I first saw the scarf I wasn’t sure whether I liked it, but after wearing it for a day, I definitely grew very fond of the graduating hues.

Enough with the fashion, and back to the play.

Fatal attraction is a re-interpretation of the classic thriller by original screen writer James Dearden and promises psychological, nail-biting and blood-pumping suspense. While I was completely mesmerized by Kristin Davis (she hasn’t changed at all since her Sex and the City days), Natascha McElhorne was a bit of a disappointment. The acting wasn’t brilliant and the dialogues and monologues of all of them were a bit hasty. And don’t even get me started on the costumes…just awful (probably for a reason?). The story itself and the stage set were brilliant though, so if you like the actors, it’s definitely worth checking out the play. Booking is until 21 June, so be quick before it’s too late.
