Rush for Sex and the City clothes
Sarah Jessica Parker
Sex and the City was synonymous with glamorous outfits
Hundreds of women in New York have queued up to buy clothes from TV show Sex and the City.

Items from the serial's wardrobe, which came to a close in the US last month, were snapped up by eager shoppers.

The sitcom's four main characters became famous for their outfits and shoes during its six-year run.

But most of their designer items - such as Carrie Bradshaw Manolo Blahnik stilettos - were claimed by members of the cast or auctioned for charity.

Many of the items in the sale were bought by the show's costumers but were never used in the production.

But several pieces were attached with written instructions from the production crew, including a pink nightdress worn by Carrie.

The dearest item on sale was a black sequined Chanel dress with a price tag of $5,000 (2,785).

It is expected that some of the items will end up on auction websites.

"I'm in heaven. I'm just beside myself," gushed Chris Robillard, 31.

"I got Carrie's hot pants!" said Rene Ortega, as she clutched a pair of pink trousers she knew to have been worn by the character.

"I've got no spending limit. This is a once-in-a-lifetime deal," she added.
