Share Article

With the opening of Sex and the City: the Movie, New York's favourite party-girl fashionistas are back in vogue. But if you're a UK Carrie Bradshaw - more Manchester than Manhattan - fail to adequately insure that wardrobe full of designer labels and you could end up crying into your cosmopolitan.

To find out what home insurance would cost to cover Manchester Carrie Bradshaw's wardrobe, Apple laptop etc, insurance comparison site input the following details before searching for quotes:

Born: 31/01/66
Marital Status:    single (though having a long term, on again-off again fling with Bez)
Employment: journalist (Big Apple Carrie may contribute to the New York Star and Vogue, but our Carrie lends her talents to the Manchester Evening News and Nuts)

Home Insurance

All Sex and the City fans know that Carrie's most prized possession is her shoe collection, valued in one episode at $40,000 (roughly £20,000) - definitely more Blahnik than Barratts. Add clothes and other belongings, and contents insurance for her one bed apartment was set at £50,000 (including £3000 'away from home' cover for her trusty Apple laptop and assorted bling).

Manhattan Carrie resides at 245 East 73rd Street whilst her Mancunian counterpart lives in a one-bedroom flat on Sackville Street, right in the heart of the buzzing Canal Street village with all its bars and nightlife - the perfect spot to hook up with male best pal, Manchester Stanford Blatch.

Car Insurance

Sarah Jessica Parker's alter ego doesn't need a car to get around her sexy city, but the lack of a subway in Manchester means our Carrie's bought a Mini. This car was chosen because Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda (plus Fendi handbags) can all squeeze in, and any fashion-conscious lady would be happy to be seen climbing out of one.

Cheapest quote found for annual car insurance: £290.65** (Sheila's Wheels)

So if Manhattan Carrie were to relocate to this side of the pond, she could pick up some excellent deals on home and car insurance, and any savings could go towards her next Prada outfit or pair of Jimmy Choos.
