On June 6, one show flickered onto screens across the country and not only revolutionized television for women but sent lasting reverberations into the fashion industry. Think: tutus, tube tops and Manolo Blahnik s galore that magically sprang from her closet every episode. Every outfit for Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda meticulously complemented and informed their characters. Here we see Miranda, Carrie and Samantha walking out of their hotel. Samantha in particular is dressed in an eye-catching somewhat outrageous ensemble that make us wonder if is she is subconsciously channeling Princess Jasmine?

7 Things We Know Carrie Bradshaw Would Wear in | Who What Wear
It's not every day that my favorite real-life fashion icon copies my favorite fictitious fashion icon, but the day has come, and I couldn't be more here for it. Of course, Kim K put her own spin on the look, originally worn by actress Sarah Jessica Parker — a style icon in her own right, Carrie Bradshaw aside — proving that anyone can rock the newspaper print.

While it's been 15 years since Sex and the City ended , Sarah 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.

The original series embodied fashion trends as much as it introduced them, both micro nameplate necklaces a la the Carrie and macro haute couture for even the most cash-strapped of the masses. By the time the series ended, it was not only a statement about personal style, it was a commentary on the trials and travails in the loveless city of New York. At its core, the series celebrated personal style. Quirky Carrie wore kooky mishmoshes of vintage and high fashion; no-nonsense lawyer Miranda donned minimalist power suits; uptown prep Charlotte favored prim tailored dresses; downtown libertine Samantha chose anything she darn well pleased in bright colored and fitted shapes. Much of this influence is the legacy of legendary Sex and the City costumier Patricia Field, who made a name for herself by nailing down each character down to the last stud earring.
