You know you loved the risque, HBO hit “Sex and the City” from 1998 to 2004. And then you enjoyed the two big-budget films, made in 2008 and 2010. Although the story lines were sometimes vain and contrived, the style NEVER disappointed.

All four main characters, Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall), Charlotte York (Kristen Davis) and Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) had their own unique style and take on fashion and accessories.

Samantha was all about the sex appeal, whereas Miranda upheld the chic businesswoman look. And Charlotte (my favorite), was always perfectly preppy and sweet. And then there was the fashion lover and risk taker, Carrie, who, especially in the second “Sex and the City” motion picture, took chances with her scarf accessories.

In “Sex and the City 2,” Carrie and the girls embark on a trip to the United Arab Emirates, in which the unrelenting sun beats down harder and hotter than any summer day in New York.

To help protect herself from the heat, while still remaining trendy and fashionable, Carrie dons a shimmering, striped turban after her and her gal pals arrive at the airport.


Later in the trip, the foursome, who are used to catching rides in limos and cabs, instead trek across the desert dunes on camels. Again, to protect themselves from the relentless heat, Carrie and Samantha, in particular, fashion head pieces and wraps to shield their faces from the afternoon rays.


Which Zazou scarf do you think would match each character’s personality?!

My personal picks include the following:



1102 Chopstick and Noodle Scarf – This youthful, fresh scarf screams Carrie Bradshaw, and I think her small, gold “Carrie” necklace would look dashing underneath this wrap.



6394 Palms Scarf – Inspired by her move to Los Angeles with Smith Jared, I believe the sun-loving Samantha would gravitate toward this resort-wear inspired accessory. While strolling along the California beaches, Sam could lightly drape this black and white piece over an equally chic black bikini, paired with a wide brimmed hat and round black sunglasses. Fabulous!



797 Rose Scarf – Charlotte was always the hopeless romantic. She preferred walks through a vibrant garden in Central Park to walks of shame. Therefore, this beautifully rich, lovely red rose scarf would be perfect for Charlotte’s cheerful and loving personality.



1154 Diagonal Dots Scarf – I think the caramel macchiato color combination would look beautiful next to Miranda’s fiery red hair.

Do you agree with my choices?

Though the best selling novels and blockbuster films were called “Harry Potter,” we at Zazou believe it could have been renamed the “Wizarding World of Wraps!”


In addition to wands and broomsticks, the young students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry were also required to don cloaks and, during the snowy months in Scotland, thick scarves in the colors of their respective houses.


In “Harry Potter,” Hogwarts is divided into four separate houses, all of which were named after the four founders of the school. The four houses include Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff.


The books’ and movies’ protagonists, Harry, Hermione and Ron, reside in Gryffindor, a house which bears the colors scarlet and gold and is represented by a lion mascot.

All three of the young stars, at one point or another, wear their warm, widely-cut Gryffindor scarves throughout the halls and classrooms of Hogwarts. Their scarves beam with the striped colors of their house, although the width of the stripes seemed to vary throughout the eight “Harry Potter” films, which include “The Sorcerer’s Stone,” “The Chamber of Secrets,” “The Prisoner of Azkaban,” “The Goblet of Fire,” “The Order of the Phoenix,” “The Half-Blood Prince,” “The Deathly Hallows – Part I” and “The Deathly Hallows – Part 2.”


Some characters, such as Hermione, also wore their own scarves on the school grounds, which offered a rare glimpse into the heroes’ own personal styles.

Welcome back to  Scarf Stars, where we attempt to stock the Hollywood Square cubicles with fabulously famous scarves (or, in actuality, have some fun with scarves in cinema).

Today’s celebrity accessory was not necessarily made for style, but for practical reasons instead, because winter in the home town of Ralph, Randy and the Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle, is as snowy and cold as it gets.

A Christmas Story

To protect himself from the nose-nipping air, Randy from 1983’s “A Christmas Story” rocks one thick, wool scarf that covers his neck and the majority of his face.


The bulky scarf, however, is the least of Randy’s worries, seeing as his padded red snow suit prohibits him from even putting his arms down!

Stay warm Randy, and if you want to trade in your scarf-mask for some sleeker, less binding garments, check out  scarves at!
