"BIG" - the big Kahuna 'Carrie' finally caught, wears JOHN LOBB

I've always had a crush on actor, CHRIS NOTH, from the first time he appeared on Law & Order and helped me get through miles of training runs on the USA channel, TNT. True, he was a bit of a thug, but he was without question, the cutest boy in the NYPD. I challenge any woman out there to say with a straight face, that she hasn't fallen at least once for a bad-boy Chris Noth type.
While I liked him in Law & Order, I was HEAD-OVER-HEELS for him in Sex and the City. "Big" was THE BIG ONE - the proverbial "one who got away". For me, he was a ringer of the ridiculously handsome DJ/skier boyfriend I had in my mid-twenties who made me my first "serious" money by advising me to short Toys R' Us, right before they filed for Chapter 11.
As much as I love watching Chris, whether on the tube or live and in person, front row, with SJP at a Marc Jacobs show, I'm actually more interested in watching his evolution from a J.C. Penny suit-clad detective to a sharply tailored guy with JOHN LOBB shoes on his feet.
I couldn't get to 'Sex and the City II opening night, but I did hear, courtesy of Atelier PR, that Chris is getting some serious fashion know-how. Mr. BIG looked refined all right, in his STAVELY Lobbs while attending the premiere of Sex and of the City 2 earlier this week. The Staveley is a classic oxford with a modern squared toe that featured a mock toe cap with three rows of stitching. Maybe, it was Carrie/SJP who speeded-up the process, but Chris Noth has definitely gotten the moves down to fit the bill as Carrie's forever consort. After all, the first wardrobe item a woman looks at on a man is his shoes. Bases on his LOBBS, BIG and Carrie will be together for a very long time.
