'Sex' and 'Lipstick' author doesn't dress the part

This is Candace Bushnell, author of the columns that were the basis for Darren Star's fashionable HBO TV series, "Sex and the City." She is also behind NBC's new series "Lipstick Jungle," which will attempt to follow in its predecessor's Manolos.

What, she couldn't find a coat that didn't swallow her for today's ribbon-cutting opening of the Mercedes-Benz Fall 08 Fashion Week?

And it's trimmed in mink?

Seriously?

Is this a portent of bad TV fashion to come? I've got a bad feeling about this.
