It is a well-known fact that Sarah Jessica Parker had many a fabulous fashion moment in Sex and The City – hell, the show turned her into a full blown fashion icon – and we think it’s time for a quick style flashback. We apologise in advance for not being able to find ALL our fav’ Carrie outfits for you – there are many more than the ones below.
Funnily enough, we actually didn’t really used to believe that SJP’s style in the show was as brilliant or revolutionary as people said and couldn’t understand what it was they were raving on so fiercely about…. until we started re-watching a few episodes ourselves that is – that’s what lazy Sundays are for right?
And then it dawned on us… *gadunk* (that’s the sound of our jaws dropping by the way) – this is what they’d been talking about this whole time! See, we had faded memories of SJP strutting her stuff down NY streets in some crazy Jimmy Choos which neither us nor our friends would have been seen dead in. Same went for the crazy print coats which seemed completely unwearable – everyone at school would have made fun of us had we shown up in that! And the list goes on… But we had forgotten one elementary factor my friends; when we started watching Sex and The City, we were only young ones really (and our parents probably should not have let us watch this series given the industrious quantity of sexual references and graphic scenes in it) which meant we were also fashion novices. 10 years down the line, we can now fully appreciate Carrie Bradshaw’s genius.
Between the bodycon skirts, retro flowery dresses, the crop tops, the tutu skirts, the fabulous fur coats (which we hope were faux…) the amazing heels and so on… we think Carrie was ahead of her time style-wise and may just go through the entire 6 series of the show again just for style-stalking purposes.
By the way, did anyone understand the whole Russian story line? We honestly never liked Aleksandr Petrovsky and will never understand why she followed him to Paris. Paris is beautiful, don’t get us wrong, but what was she thinking going with him??
And finally, who else would kill for Ms. Bradshaw’s walk-in closet??
