‘Sex and the City’ Violates Fashion in Its House of WorshipMan, Sarah Jessica Parker gets everything. She and the Sex and the City crew got to run around in the Condé Nast offices and pretend they work at Vogue, reports WWD. Willie Garson (a.k.a. Stanford Blatch) spilled the beans on the exclusive shoot — recall, The Devil Wears Prada was mysteriously barred from filming in the building — and even said that Anna Wintour consulted on the segments involving her magazine. While WWD says it was the actual Vogue offices that were used, we hear shooting took place elsewhere at 4 Times Square. Namely, the Teen Vogue offices. We can’t say we’re surprised. If SJP showed up at the real Vogue in one of her heinous movie outfits, she’d be taken out by interns with blow darts before she left the elevator.

Willie Garson Drops ‘SATC’ Hints at Project A.L.S. BenefitAt last night’s Project A.L.S. tenth-anniversary gala, Jennifer Hudson was “preserving” her voice by not speaking to reporters. But we managed to slightly raise the veil of secrecy on the Sex and the City movie by hurling questions at Willie Garson, who plays Sarah Jessica Parker’s gay BFF, Stanford. After he described a recent scene to a horde of shouting journos with, “No! I can’t give it away. I’d have to kill you,” we slipped in our query: Why did Big miss the wedding, as paparazzi shots of the set would have you believe? “I can’t tell you that either!” Garson said. Then he caught himself. “What wedding? That’s how I’m supposed to answer — what wedding?” Did we detect some gossip in there? Anyway, Garson tried to assure us that the movie is a whole big lovefest, too (even though we didn’t ask). “We actually shot a scene last night with all of us sitting around a table, and it was like the Last Supper,” he said. “It was absolutely ridiculous that we were all sitting there together. It was completely surreal.” Again, we feel like we detect some gossip in there. —Bennett Marcus
