I've tried to insert a little sartorial variety in Alexandra Quick, mostly by including a lot of different cultures with their own style of dress (and having Alexandra make disparaging remarks about "formal robe == dress"), but I often still feel like I'm just throwing leather or lace over a robe.
So I'm reading an amusing essay at sci-fi site io9 about how Sex and the City 2 is actually a science fiction movie, and they post this image:
Does that look like a witches' fashion show or what? I can totally see Alex's sisters dressing up like that for a night out on the town.
Almost makes me want to see the movie.
Okay, not really. But I'll bet the filmmakers for DH could get a lot of inspiration from it!
