Patricia Field knows a thing or two about style. The costume designer is the fashion force behind the now iconic wardrobe of "Sex in the City," "The Devil Wears Prada" and most recently, "Confessions of a Shopaholic." (And no doubt, SATC 2.)

In celebration of today's "Confessions of a Shopaholic" DVD release, Field lets StyleList in on what it was like dressing Isla Fisher, the favorite "hooker" look that didn't make the cut and her summer must-have.

So how did COAS compare to working on every woman's fashion fantasy, SATC? "The ["Confessions of a Shopaholic"] script was more extreme," says Field. "And Isla Fisher energized the character; she made it easy to style her."

Luckily, there's even more fashion fodder on the DVD. Field appears in the bonus footage talking about the clothing and accessories that shaped Fisher's character. But it turns out Field's favorite look never made it past the cutting room floor.

"My favorite was a Carolina Herrera pantsuit," she reveals. "It was a small red print on a figaro pant and fitted jacket. Isla liked it; I loved it, but the director didn't. He thought she looked like a hooker or something. But it was Carolina Herrera!"

Okay, so you probably won't be able to get your hands on the "hooker suit," but Field does offer her style advice for this summer: Aladdin pants. "It's been jeans, jeans, jeans for so long," she says. "But these pants are playful. I'm enjoying them."

You heard it here first: Field can't get enough of Aladdin (aka, Hammer) pants.
