The evolution of style Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and The City not only is it one of the most famous ever, but also one of the most unstoppable: episode after episode, the protagonist has continually reinvented herself without ever settling on a single kind of clothing, and her chameleon side could only be taken up in the new series And Just Like That... (spoilers about the TV series follow, attention!).
Just two episodes from the start of the highly anticipated sequel, the character played by Sarah Jessica Parker has marked a new one statement look which, despite the decidedly sad context, is already announcing itself iconic.
The title of the second episode, Little Black Dress, already hints at how important Carrie’s choice of style is. After all, this is the funeral of her husband, the unforgettable Mr. Big, so the protagonist just wanted to “get there before other people” and make sure everything was the way she wanted. In a completely white room, with white chairs and a coffin covered with white flowers – sent by Samantha Jones – Carrie Bradshaw appears with her personal versione del Little Black Dress: a silhouette with a flared skirt in the 60s style, inspired (in the style but also in the spirit with which she faces this difficult day) by Jackie Kennedy, as Carrie’s own friend Stanford puts it.
The dress also features an elegant V-neckline and a voluminous lace skirt, made up of several layers of tulle – now a true style signature for Carrie Bradshaw – and was accessorized with a classic string of pearls and a delicate fascinator black on the collected hair.
Ma where does this iconic look come from? Nothing new or coming from the latest fashion shows, but something more special and unique, with a story: «That wonderful dress comes from the vintage collection of Danny SantiagoCostume designer Molly Rogers a Popsugar, referring to his right arm, adding, “He beat every black dress that entered through that door.” Not a simple black dress in which to mourn, but a cathartic piece with which Sarah Jessica Parker entered her character to represent a time when every woman needs to feel safe and supported. Even from what he wears. In the gallery below, the images of Carrie Bradshaw in her black dress.
