Get the look: Sex and the City 2 jewelry from Rodrigo Otazu
The long-awaited Sex and the City 2 finally came out in the theaters yesterday, much to the delight of fashionistas worldwide. Women from here on out will be dying and vying to get the uber stylish looks of the SATC2 ladies. But the question that will inevitably be asked is “Where is that from?”
Lucky you, we have one important area covered: Jewelry. Much of the jewelry in the movie has been provided by the brilliant and vibrant Argentine jewelry designer, Rodrigo Otazu. Rodrigo’s bold and adventurous aesthetic have caught the attentions of W, Italian Vogue, Elizabeth Taylor, Tyra Banks, Beyonce and, recently, Patricia Field.
His philosophy? “Jewelry is sexy…A woman should know how to wear her jewelry,” said Rodrigo. Rodrigo and SATC2 are a match made in accessories heaven. Get your own SATC2 look with the Rodrigo Otazu pieces below.

When Rodrigo first met the SATC2 styling team, he was too late to get his in on the movie. “The slots were closed,” said Rodrigo. However, one of the stylists was floored by his jewelry when she saw his runway show with model, Lily Cole, on Youtube (video here). She made one phone call insisting that Rodrigo was a must-have.
Rodrigo got to furiously sketching and designing when he heard the fantastic news. Within four sleepless days and nights, Rodrigo purchased materials and hand-crafted a collection just for the movie. It paid off: SATC2 chose the eight pieces above. Statistically, that is pretty impressive.
Rodrigo said, “When I met Patricia Fields, she grabbed my hand and said ‘I hope we give you a lot of success.'” Rodrigo has had his fair share already, but SATC2 has a good track record of launching designers into another stratosphere. Look at Manolo Blahnik.
