Carrie Bradshaw, Samantha Jones, Miranda Hobbes and Charlotte York kept the home box office sizzling hot for six seasons from 1998 to 2004. What transpired is a huge fashion extravaganza which not only captivated the minds of young New Yorkers but also of the fashionistas throughout the world. Let’s get nostalgic and revisit the biggest fashion and friendship lessons that the gals from Sex and the City have taught us.
Sarah Jessica Parker would always be remembered for her role as a columnist Carrie Bradshaw, who would not step out without her Jimmy Choos, Manolo Blahniks and Diors. She influenced millions of young women worldwide and taught them how to absorb a fast paced lifestyle in one of the most fashionable cities in the world, New York City.
Carrie breezed through her walk of fame in the world of American sitcoms in her classy Manolo Blahniks. Reminding us of how the most important part of Cinderella was her glitzy slippers, she proved every woman loves her pair of precious stilettos. She arrived in the Big Apple with dreams in her eyes and pumps on her feet. As a narrator of the show who gave us an all new perspective on how the new age independent woman is, she will stay in the fashion bibles forever.
The oldest and the sexiest of the lot, Samantha taught us all about being sexy. She oozed oomph even when she was fighting breast cancer, showing us how to embrace both best and worst moments in the same spirit. A blooming career, a list of hot boyfriends and a bling-filled wardrobe were her best assets. A confident, independent career woman, with a zest for life, she lightened up the most serious moments of the show. Her bikinis, golden stilettos and quirky accessories kept fashion police out of work.
The moral cop of the show, Charlotte treated all her friends as soul mates and her love life was sacred. She was the only one in the group to embrace mini mouse fashion with pink headbands, clutches, shoes, clothes and more. A hopeless romantic, she would always dress her best in her scarfs and trench coats. Her mermaid wardrobe suited her girl-next- door persona who believed in finding her Mr. Right. Throughout the seasons she was consistent in her fashion and style statements. From being a fresh art dealer to being a loving mom, Charlotte was prim and proper and so was her style.
An ambitious lawyer, Miranda started off as the sassy attorney in a big bad man’s world. Her tailor-made business suits and sharp haircut echoed her gritty and tenacious persona. Teaming up her boring business suits with funky accessories was her style. She went all out to protect and stand by her friends, which we think was the biggest fashion statement she made. As the seasons progressed, she added a feminine touch to her business look with her chandelier earrings and large waisted belts. She swam through the world of heartbreaks, motherhood and friendship with great confidence.
