Scene from Sex and the City 2Credit crunch? What credit crunch? Anyone expecting the global financial financial crisis to have an effect on the wardrobes of Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha - the four everyday New York ladies whose Sex And The City have made the leap from TV to big screen - will have to wait.

It has emerged in a report in New York Magazine that Sex And The City 2 included a staggering budget of $10 million on the principal cast's clothes.

The magazine says one of the more costly fashion moments is the Abu Dhabi karaoke scene (pictured here) where Carrie wears $4,000 jeans under a $47,190 silver-and-gold Chanel lamé dress and overskirt.

Find out more extravagance from SATC2 after the jump... Scene from Sex and the City 2Credit crunch? What credit crunch? Anyone expecting the global financial financial crisis to have an effect on the wardrobes of Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha - the four everyday New York ladies whose Sex And The City have made the leap from TV to big screen - will have to wait.

It has emerged in a report in New York Magazine that Sex And The City 2 included a staggering budget of $10 million on the principal cast's clothes.

The magazine says one of the more costly fashion moments is the Abu Dhabi karaoke scene (pictured here) where Carrie wears $4,000 jeans under a $47,190 silver-and-gold Chanel lamé dress and overskirt.

Elsewhere in the movie, Samantha and Miley Cyrus wear matching $3,500 Matthew Williamson dresses and $300 Dolce Vita boots. Charlotte makes cupcakes in a vintage Valentino blouse, while Miranda wears a $1,400 Roland Mouret dress and in another scene a five-figure 24-karat gold cuff.

Writer Michael Patrick King has spoken about his decision to make the sequel full of opulent dresses and luxurious locations, despite the worldwide economic gloom.

"I thought Hollywood should take people on a big vacation that maybe they couldn't afford themselves," he says. "I wanted to make it a big, extravagant vacation."

New York Magazine speculates that the real reason for the extravagant budget is that we are unlikely to see SATC3. Quoted in The Sun recently actress Kim Cattrall, who plays Samantha, urged caution at future films saying: "The great thing about the Sex and the City series was that we didn't stay too long. But I'd hate for people to think, Oh my god, there's another one out there."
