Meet the sassy triple threats who put the sex back into the city in Candace Bushnell's new Lipstick Jungle (premieres tonight at 10 pm/ET on NBC).

Plays: Designer Victory Ford, a onetime 7th Avenue golden girl, who's now out of fashion.
Strength: "Victory doesn't do anything halfway," Price says.
Weakness: "She's starting to wonder if her success was a fluke."
Signature Line: "All I own is a busted career and 200 pairs of shoes."
Romance: Andrew McCarthy plays a blue-eyed billionaire who could rescue Victory and her company.
Nemesis: She has several, including an ex-assistant who steals her work.
Fashion Sense: Romantic and whimsical (think Peter Som).

Plays: Wendy Healy, president of Parador Pictures and overscheduled mom.
Strength: "She's highly capable of multitasking," Shields says.
Weakness: "She beats herself up if things are not perfect."
Signature Line: "I can handle it."
Romance: Wendy's musician hubby (Paul Blackthorne) restlessly plays Mr. Mom.
Nemesis: Publisher Janice Lasher (Lorraine Bracco), who wants to ruin Wendy with a nasty ex-nanny's diary.
Fashion Sense: Well-tailored classics, including several pieces from Courrèges and Chanel.

Plays: Ultra-ambitious Nico Reilly, trendy "Bonfire" magazine editor, who's under constant pressure to nail the big celebrity stories.
Strength: "She's smart, skilled and not afraid to say what she's thinking," Raver says.
Weakness: "She's not afraid to say what she's thinking — loudly!"
Signature Line: "When they smell fear in this town, it's over."
Romance: Just as her marriage to her former professor (Christopher Cousins) loses its sizzle, she rebounds with a hot young photo assistant (Robert Buckley).
Nemesis: "Bonfire" marketing head Mike Harness (David Alan Basche), who will do anything for Nico's job.
Fashion Sense: Luxe wear like alligator Christian Dior pumps and Zac Posen dresses.
