I know, I know. No one looks good in a ruched pink mini dress with white pumps and a silk scarf headband. Not even Ms.
Sarah Jessica Parker will always have great keepsakes from her Sex and the City days because she has "95 per cent" of her onscreen wardrobe in storage. The actress shot to fame portraying sex columnist Carrie Bradshaw on the hit drama series, which aired from toand her character became known for her fashionable style. Sarah Jessica has been lucky enough to keep hold of the majority of the clothing she wore on the show, but instead of adding the pieces to her own wardrobe, she has instead stored the designer gear away as memorabilia.
Sex and the City was ostensibly about four women living, working, and dating in New York City, but its storylines were easily eclipsed by the characters' fashion choices. As the show's costume designer Patricia Field has said"We were telling the stories and showcasing the characters through the way they dress. SATC, in some ways, revolutionized fashion.
Since these characters have become some of the most referenced women in pop culture. SATC as a series plus two movies was bubbling over with themes on friendship, career women, sexual liberation, and the complexities of love. Patricia curated four very different wardrobes that communicated a specific message about each of these Manhattan women. However, surprising an acquaintance whose marriage you destroyed in this dress is NOT.
Many stylish female leads have come and gone in TV land, but none of them have quite left their mark like Carrie Bradshaw. From the moment she appeared on screen women everywhere began to bow down to the one female that could truly pull off any look. Not only did Carrie Bradshaw take fashion to the next level, but she single handily changed the face of high end brands like Manolo Blahnik, Dior, and of course Chanel.
Four women — Carrie Bradshaw, Samantha Jones, Miranda Hobbes and Charlotte York — started trends, broke fashion rules and put brands we now know and love on the map. From kickstarting the concept of high-low dressing to making every woman in the world want a pair of Manolos, the impact was huge - and we were able to admire the four characters' individual styles develop over the six ground-breaking seasons and two films. Despite the franchise ending years ago, the world is still obsessed with SATC style today — and there's a reason for that.
Twenty years since it first appeared on TV, Sex and the City and Carrie Bradshaw in particular is still influencing us whether you're for or against it. To so many women, Sex and the City mattered—and still does—for so many reasons. It celebrated the girlfriends we turn into sisters, it portrayed women speaking unabashedly about their exploits, and yes, there was the fashion.
When did you know Sex and the City had become a pop culture phenomenon? I first understood it was hugely popular at the end of the first season when the buzz started. By the second season it had exploded like an atom bomb.
While it's been 15 years since Sex and the City endedSarah Jessica Parker is just now answering a burning question about Carrie Bradshaw's wardrobe. The snapshot showed Parker's character walking with Kim Cattrall 's character, Samantha Jones, and Cynthia Nixon 's character, Miranda Hobbes, while wearing a mismatched pair of Christian Louboutin shoes. Or did she purchase two separate pairs and mix them together herself?
When it comes to Sex and the City 's iconic style moments, you may have been a fan of Carrie's head-turning outfits, Samantha's skin-tight ensembles, and Miranda's boss-lady power suits, but Charlotte's chic feminine and preppy looks should not be overlooked. While the other girls were trendsetters of their timeCharlotte's classic all-American wardrobe is still very much in style, more than two decades later. Not only was her style timeless and attainable, but women everywhere are still finding sartorial inspiration from her looks. The show's stylist, Patricia Field, told us, "Charlotte is the girl that every guy wants to take home to mother.
