Candace Bushnell: The Sex and the City author’s new novel, Lipstick Jungle, is about successful women. “It’s something people are afraid of,” Bushnell says. “That’s what makes it interesting.” Other things that interest her lately:

BRANGELINA “Think of Angelina as Anna Karenina.”

NEW FASHIONS “Leopard print Manolo Blahnik is a good bet.”


“People say, ‘Don’t throw anything out, it’s going to come back,’ and you don’t believe it—but look at leg warmers.”

LEG WARMERS “I don’t have pet peeves…but you shouldn’t wear them unless you’re a ballet dancer.”

HER HUSBAND, BALLET DANCER CHARLES ASKEGARD “I go to his performances and sit in the first row, so I see EVERYTHING.”

BEING A HOMEBODY “I cook a mean roast chicken with stuffing.”

THE PAPARAZZI “They don’t bother me—but I wish they would!”
