Here come the girls

GLITZY: Fairer sex dominate as SJP steals show, with a little help from our own Philip Treacy

The stars on the red carpet left fans in no doubt -- this one was just for the girls.

It was full-on glamour for the London premiere of Sex And The City 2 as SJP and the crew wowed fans -- with a little help from an Irishman.

As a number of well-known faces competed in the style stakes at the exclusive event, Sarah Jessica Parker led the way thanks to Irish designer Philip Treacy.

The style icon wore a handcrafted headpiece by the Galway milliner at last night's premiere of the highly anticipated sequel -- and fashion followers had a case of deja vu as the star wore a Treacy creation at the premiere of the first film in 2008.

The show-stopping black piece has been praised for its intricate design, and although the actress always makes headlines for her fashion choices, she has chosen to stay loyal to the designer for his interesting works.

The headpiece was so delicate that the mother of three even needed assistance getting out of her chauffeur-driven car to avoid it toppling over.

At the star-studded premiere, Parker was joined by her equally glamorous co-stars Kristin Davis, wearing a gold glittery vintage Norman Norell gown, and Kim Cattrall, aka Samantha Jones, who modelled old Hollywood glamour with a classic black dress and 1940s-style hairdo.

Cynthia Nixon, sporting new hair extensions, wowed fans in a simple teal Narciso Rodriguez number.

A number of celebrities from the music and film world stopped by to celebrate at the VIP premiere -- including the ever personable Kylie Minogue.

The pint-sized Aussie was seen posing Zoolander-style with Pineapple Dance Studios star Louie Spence. The fun-loving singer also stayed true to her fashion icon status by wearing a high-neck, midnight-blue gown.

Former Spice Girl Emma Bunton was clearly enjoying the first days of summer as she sported a dress from her bandmate's collection -- a silk, multi-coloured Victoria Beckham design with purple, peep-toed heels.

And Rachel Stevens may have just announced her pregnancy, but the singer won't be foregoing glamour over the next nine months as the brunette beauty wowed fans with her white flowing dress and skyscraper gold heels.

However, Amanda Holden seems to have taken the film's slogan 'Get Carried Away' to heart -- the Britain's Got Talent judge raised eyebrows with her fairytale glamour in a frilly, marshmallow-pink dress.

X Factor winner Alexandra Burke has caused a divide among style juries in her crushed black velvet dress, but one young star whose fashion choices are consistently met with resounding approval is Harry Potter actress Emma Watson, who didn't disappoint in her simple creme shift dress.

Tess Daly, Danielle Lineker and Peaches Geldof also graced the red carpet.
