Carrie, one of us in 2020, in short, who even goes to sleep before midnight.
But then she receives the call from Miranda, also in the company of exclusive Chinese food and a glass of wine. On the night outfit, then, wear the fur (the iconic one of the first season of the series), a stroboscopic beanie and Chanel designer ankle boots, white and pure as the snow that falls incessantly in New York and that she faces, reckless, in high heels.
