  • The most important movie of all time, the Sex and the City movie, shot at the offices of the most important magazine of all time, Vogue.

And we hope that Jennifer Hudson, who is playing Carrie Bradshaw's assistant in the movie, manages to restrain herself re: that whole idiotic bolero-from-Mars thingy he made her wear to the Oscars.
