Would you wear it.. from a movie?

Inspired by an Asos group that worships one of the gowns Carrie wore on set at SATC, I started to wonder: would I actually wear a dress that made a memorable appearance in a movie/TV show? Some of the clothes she wore are avaliable to buy on sites such as Net-a-porter.com and I was wondering, would any of you actually BUY a "Carrie" dress? For instance the famous dress by Vivienne Westwood that Carrie was about to marry Big in, well there's short version of the gown..



For me at least the thing is, I wouldn't pay that much money (if I HAD that much money..) for something that's already associated with someone else. It will forever be a "Carrie" dress and to be frank if I was getting married, I'd want a "me" dress (albeilt a Vivienne Westwood "me" dress;)). And another thing? I mean, she didn't even get married in the dress. The whole thing turned into a disaster.. so it's not a very lucky dress, is it?

But it is quite lovely non the less (althou I prefer the longer version). Here's a link to the net-a-porter site, where you can buy it for a small fortune: http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/41379
