dental prosthetics: Sex and the City

Sex and the City ‘Hot Child in the City’

In the episode ‘Hot Child in the City’ Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) is prescribed braces to cure her headaches which make her feel like an uncool teenager again. Worse: the braces she has are apparently old-fashioned; eating caviar is so embarassing; and, worst of all, they cramp her lovelife when her lover gets entangled.

Incidently, this was not the first time Cynthia wore fake braces on screen – her character had braces in Let it Ride. She also wore dentures when playing Eleanor Roosevelt in Warm Springs.

The makeup

Judy Chin was key makeup artist and Kerrie R Plant was makeup artist (Cynthia Nixon), but I don’t know who was responsible for Cynthia’s braces; if anyone can confirm the credits, please email themakeupgallery.
