NEW YORK - Stick Sarah Jessica Parker in a room filled with reporters, all men, and the first question they ask isn't about co-starring alongside Matthew McConaughey in her new film, or her marriage to actor Matthew Broderick, or her six years starring in HBO's Sex and the City, or the Golden Globes and Emmys she's won, or even her three decades in showbiz. No, what these guys want to know is: "Who designed your outfit?" "Oh, thank you," gushes Parker, either grateful for the attention or -- more likely -- glad to get the obvious question out of the way first.

MAYBE you've heard of HBO's hit comedy "Sex and the City." Maybe you've seen it. But have you lived it? Filmed on location in Manhattan, the show puts a shrewd, ironic spotlight on the busy lives and even busier love lives of its four liberated leading ladies: sympathetic sex columnist Carrie, cynical red-headed lawyer Miranda, insatiable PR exec Samantha and optimistic WASP art dealer Charlotte. The heroines meet their men at some of the city's most sleek spots. They all look stylish and sultry, and so does their city.
