A Breakdown of the Fashion in the ‘And Just Like That’ Finale

A Breakdown of the Fashion in the ‘And Just Like That’ Finale

And just like that, the “Sex and the City” reboot has aired its finale.“And Just Like That” debuted its final episode on Thursday, offering a temporary conclusion for the characters Carrie Bradshaw, Miranda Hobbes and Charlotte York — played by Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis, respectively — after the 10-episode reboot followed the women navigating life, love, loss and family in their fifties. While talks of a second season have been swirling among Parker and the show’s creators, HBO Max has yet to confirm the news.
The reboot’s finale again delivered the over-the-top, high-fashion moments that fans have become accustomed to since the show debuted in December. Unequivocally the franchise’s style icon, Bradshaw wore an array of looks in the episode that left their mark on the reboot.

The “And Just Like That” finale started off with Bradshaw going on her first date since her husband Mr. Big, played by Chris Noth, died from a heart attack. Bradshaw wears a light pink floral maxi dress paired with a contrasting pink satin blazer and a matching Paco Rabanne Sparkle 1969 bag.
The morning after the date, Bradshaw joins Hobbes and York for brunch, with each character wearing outfits that stay true to their style. Bradshaw goes with a contrasting striped look, pairing a green striped blouse with green, black and pink striped pants. She paired the look with the Chanel Vanity bag, Saint Laurent Ivy floral-appliqué silk sandals and a Thom Browne double-breasted silk coat.
York sticks with her conservative and classy style in a floral A-line dress by Erdem paired with a Chanel Boyfriend watch. Hobbes goes casual, wearing a tracksuit set by Lululemon paired with Veronica Beard clogs.
For one of her more casual looks in the episode, Bradshaw is seen wearing a blue cashmere sweater with beige trousers paired with the Hourglass bag from Gucci and Balenciaga’s Hacker Project that she wears earlier in the reboot. Bradshaw wears the look when dropping off her reading lamp — which she thinks is giving her a message from her late husband — to a lamp store for repair.
The reboot has also seen a handful of vintage looks on Bradshaw, and the finale included yet another archival moment. For her last podcast episode working with her boss Che Diaz, Bradshaw wears a vintage London Fog raincoat over a white shirt dress that she accessorizes with the Sonia Rykiel Domino studded bag and Isabel Marant Prasy pumps.

Also known for her standout dresses, Bradshaw wore a custom, emerald-colored floral print gown by Oscar de la Renta at her coworker’s impromptu wedding, where she runs into Diaz’s podcast producer who convinces Bradshaw to start her own podcast. The character pairs the dress with a sheer lace cropped jacket, a Nak Armstrong green onyx beaded necklace and Roger Vivier heels.
The finale’s biggest fashion moment came at the end of the episode when Bradshaw travels to Paris to spread her husband’s ashes on the same bridge where he confessed his love for her in the original series’ finale.
For the emotional moment, Bradshaw looked to Valentino couture, wearing a bright orange ball gown paired with fuchsia gloves. She housed Mr. Big’s ashes in a bag shaped like the Eiffel Tower.

The couture moment is arguably one of the biggest fashion moments in the reboot, rivaling that of Bradshaw’s Versace “Mille Feuille” dress from episode eight.
While “And Just Like That” received mixed reviews from fans and critics, it’s clear the franchise stuck to its fashion roots and delivered an array of standout moments that will remain in the cultural lexicon.

Carrie Bradshaw Flies the Flag for Vintage in This ’70s Dress

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

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.”
