There are endless outfits from the original Sex and the City series that fans have memorized, but there is one dress in particular that stands out. The body sculpting LBD (more charcoal than black, to be specific) that Carrie Bradshaw AKA Sarah Jessica Parker wears in season two, episode 15 is nothing short of iconic. Coupled with her lighthearted personality and knack for stylish accessories (she’s wearing sky-high heels, sunglasses, and a vintage Gucci bag), the seemingly simple dress has become one of the best SATC looks of all time.
The flashes of the new installment And Just Like That, which is currently filming in New York City, suggest that there is another possible “Carrie dress” in the works. Unlike her hero’s 90s LBD of hers, her 2021 style of hers comes in an elegant light blue shade.
The dress (£ 185 from Norma Kamali) is also slightly longer: the hem is just below the knee, while the original was a sassy mini that ripped through the thighs. The update features the same ruched finish, but instead of a high neck, she has a draped shoulder.
Backstage shots showed the actress with her co-star Jon Tenney outside the glamorous Au Cheval restaurant in midtown Manhattan. SJP gave the LBD (little blue dress) a modern, grown-up twist with a long cream-colored blazer and sparkly sandals, with her hair slicked back into a tight bun.
So far, there has been a mixed bag of opinions regarding the new series, not just because of the fact that Samantha (Kim Cattrall) is absent from the reboot. Carrie’s wardrobe in 2021 has been at the center of online debates: the image of her in a Forever 21 dress was declared a “scandal”, while others have argued that Carrie has not aged as fashionable as they hoped. .
“Just because you’ve aged (isn’t it?), It doesn’t mean you should give up your true self,” said British Vogue fashion news director Olivia Singer. She even compiled a buy-to-buy edition of the outfits Carrie, and her friends, should wear: Manolos, Molly Goddard tulle dresses, and vintage Fendi baguettes included. We hope that hers will appear in the famous John Galliano newspaper dress. Come on Carrie.
