PATRICIA FIELD'S deep and smoky voice echoes through a cavernous photo studio where she has been readying the cast of "Cashmere Mafia" for their publicity stills. Field whirls onto the set with magenta hair, turquoise frame spectacles and her fists full of vintage leather belts. She is debating which belts the show's four leads should wear. In the end she decides to mix it up. She is very good at mixing it up. To call Field a costume designer is an understatement.

It's only fitting that Sarah Jessica Parker's lead character Carrie in the HBO series "Sex and the City" is dressed for sex-cess. After all, she is a newspaper sex columnist. Her clothes are chosen by N.Y. costume designers and business partners Patricia Field and Rebecca Field (who are not related). Although the show stars a quartet of single Manhattan women on the make, the costumes are practically a fifth character.

Faux Hair Day: Color and size-wise, nothing compares to many of the acrylic affairs poised on heads here--not Dolly Parton's, not Eva Gabor's, maybe not even anything from the court of Louis XIV. Big --as in wearing four or five wigs, all teased to the max, at once--is the operative word, but big isn't necessarily beautiful.
