Carrie Bradshaw’s definitely mixing up her wardrobe in Sex And The City reboot, And Just Like That – whether it’s her take on the lockdown wardrobe, or the new iteration of the famous “Carrie dress”. For her latest look, though, behind-the-scenes images have shown Sarah Jessica Parker’s character once again flying the flag for her beloved vintage.
Photographs show SJP wearing a ’70s blue floral maxi dress by Oscar De La Renta, which she teamed with skyscraper Celine pumps and a Paco Rabanne Pixel tote bag, for that added sparkle. It seems that Carrie, too, is a fan of vintage dealer Cherie Balch’s Shrimpton Couture (Balch also counts the likes of Rihanna and Tracee Ellis Ross as fans), as the same ODLR gown was recently on sale at the fashion-insider favorite.
It’s not the first time that Carrie has been spotted wearing vintage in the reboot, which is set to be released in December, with SJP also seen wearing a vintage Claude Montana jumpsuit, teamed with a Dries Van Noten jacket, during filming. We know from the original series that Carrie is also a fan of a vintage Gucci handbag, which she teamed with the original “Carrie dress”.
With vintage enjoying somewhat of a revival of late, can we expect to see more vintage finds in Carrie’s And Just Like That wardrobe? Let’s hope so.

The Duchess of Sussex Glows in Oscar De La Renta in First Appearance Since Announcing She’s Pregnant
A little over a week ago, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex shared the happy news that they’re expecting a second child – and that Archie will become a big brother later this year. For the announcement on Valentine’s Day, Vogue contributing photographer Misan Harriman captured a photograph of the couple reclining under a tree, with Harry resting his hand on Meghan’s head as she lay in his lap cradling her bump. Now, the couple has made their first public appearance together since then – and they couldn’t look happier.
Speaking as part of Spotify Stream On, the pair discussed the Archewell Audio podcast that they launched last year on the platform. During the short clip, Meghan speaks about the importance of “using podcasts to drive powerful conversations”, with Prince Harry adding that they have the power to “inspire, challenge and educate”.
Meghan, who wore an Oscar de la Renta Citrus Primavera dress, and showed off cascading mermaid waves, continued: “We created Archewell Audio to make sure we can elevate voices that maybe aren’t being heard, and hear people’s stories.” With Harry adding: “And the biggest part of this is trying to create this community of where you can share, that will encourage everybody else to then share their own vulnerabilities in that safe space.”
Their appearance comes after it was confirmed they will not resume their roles as working members of the royal family. Their decision to step back from their duties was left open to review after 12 months, but the Duke and Duchess have committed to their decision to pursue independent roles while living in their adopted home of Montecito, California. A statement issued on behalf of the couple said: “As evidenced by their work over the past year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex remain committed to their duty and service to the UK and around the world, and have offered their continued support to organisations they have represented regardless of official role. We can all live a life of service. Service is universal.”
