Sarah Jessica Parker Shares the Stories Behind Her Best Met Gala Outfits

When it comes to the Met Gala, Sarah Jessica Parker has always understood the assignment. No matter what the theme or dress code is, the stylish star has consistently shown up to the annual event’s red carpet dressed to the nines. “Whenever I go to the Met, I don’t understand how everyone else didn’t spend 7 to 10 months working on it,” Parker tells Vogue. “The assignment is the theme, and you should interpret it. It should be labor-intensive and challenging.” In a new video, Parker sat down with Vogue to revisit some of the stories behind her memorable (and on-theme!) looks.
Parker’s first Met Gala was back in 1995 when she attended the “Haute Couture” theme in a black thrifted dress. Yet, as the years went on, the affair became much more theatrical and a spectacle—and so did her ensembles. Take 2006, when she attended the “Anglomania” exhibition with the late designer Alexander McQueen while wearing a tartan and tulle creation. “When I was invited, I said out loud, ‘I wish I could go with Lee’—we called him Lee,” Parker explains. “Everybody loved him because he was such a touching person. I have every pin that he dropped from his mouth and everything he cut off from our fittings in my possession still.”
Some highlights over the years for Parker included the glitzy, Studio 54-like Halston dress she wore to the 2010 “American Woman” exhibition. “Halston was so American,” says Parker.  She also fondly remembers the Oscar de la Renta gown she wore in 2014 for the Charles James exhibition. “This was the last public dress he ever built, to my knowledge. The [lattice train] idea came out of the boning and underpinnings of Charles James,” says Parker, who also asked if de la Renta would embroider his name onto the train in a dramatic scarlet hue. “He was so happy to have been talked into it,” says Parker. “He never would have done it on his own, because that would have been so immodest of him.”
Equally as iconic are the many dazzling headpieces she’s worn over the years. For 2013’s “Punk” theme, she wore a Giles Deacon dress with a Phillip Treacy mohawk headpiece. “I’m not going to say that it’s my favorite, but it’s pretty close,” says Parker of the look. “I had to sit on the floor [of the car] to get to the Met—because the headpiece did not fit if I sat in a seat.” For 2015’s “China: Through the Looking Glass” exhibition, she wore an SJP x H&M dress with another Phillip Treacy headpiece, this time crafted into a giant flame. “The headpiece had traveled from the U.K., and it arrived in customs, but it wasn’t in our possession—and it was Sunday,” remembers Parker. “We had no assurance it was going to be in our hands by Monday.” More recently, in 2018, she wore a Dolce & Gabbana gown for the “Heavenly Bodies” theme with a towering, ornate millinery accessory. “That headpiece was unbelievable and it was no heavier than [a pen,]” says Parker. “It was very Italian—marching through Naples with that on your head is not uncommon.”

Sarah Jessica Parker, now starring in Neil Simon’s Plaza Suite on Broadway with her husband, Matthew Broderick, arrived at opening night looking like a cross between a tiara and a ballerina, or even the new lead on Bridgerton.
On Monday, March 28, she walked the red carpet at the Hudson Theatre in a Prabal Gurung gown and silver heels from her own shoe collection. Her hair in an oversized bun, she looked the way I imagine Cinderella’s fairy godmother might. She had teased the look earlier in the evening on Instagram, writing, “Just wait until you see the front. No words right now. I’m sure they’ll come later. See you in Suite 719. X, SJ” alongside a picture of her outfit from behind.

The full ensemble is nothing short of gorgeous.

“A New York moment. A New York icon in a New York Pink. Tonight with the one and only @sarahjessicaparker Love you so much, SJP. Grateful for this moment, for you and for our friendship. Break a leg. I cannot wait for @plazasuitebway tonight. XPG,” the designer posted on Instagram.

The bottom layer of the dress is silk crepe-back satin, per Vogue. Gurung told the publication, “It’s not a bright pink, it’s almost like it has a light film of dust on it.” The outer layer is transparent silk tulle hand-embroidered with crystals, sequins, and beads. “There’s something very old-school about it, like it’s from a classic Avedon photograph,” Gurung said of the completed look. “It’s glamorous, but it’s still graceful.”

The play, a comedy, is divided into three acts, each following a different couple staying, at a different time, in the same hotel suite. Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick play the couples throughout, and the Sex and the City star and fashion icon is getting some excellent reviews. “Parker ultimately walks away with the show,” wrote The Hollywood Reporter. “Parker is giving the most, carrying the comedy on her narrow shoulders,” says The Guardian.

If you’re a Sex and the City or And Just Like That fan, you likely strongly associate Sarah Jessica Parker with Carrie Bradshaw—but don’t go confusing their personal styles. In a new video, the actor sat down with Vogue to revisit some of her and Carrie’s best looks, and she says the duo couldn’t be more different. “Carrie was a much more courageous dresser than I am,” Parker tells Vogue. “She has a much more fevered relationship with fashion, and much more indulgent. I’m much more of an observer.”
Since she burst onto the scene in the ’80s, Parker has made an impact on the red carpet. Back in 1987, she wore a vintage, sleek tuxedo to a Young Artists United party, along with other secondhand accessories. “I wore that peace necklace a lot. I still have it,” she says. “I shopped at thrift shops a lot, because it was a necessity.” At the 2000 Emmy Awards, we saw Parker adopt a more classic, Old Hollywood aesthetic by wearing a white Oscar de la Renta gown. “My favorite memory is himself,” says Parker of the late designer (who was also one of Carrie’s favorites). “He was always so invested, always cared, and took care of details. He also always smelled good.”
Parker’s life in looks wouldn’t be complete, however, without learning the backstory behind some of Carrie’s most iconic outfits too. The famed tutu she wore for the show’s intro in 1998, for instance, was not a one-of-one piece. “A lot of people claim they have the tutu,” says Parker. “Pat [Field] has one, Michael Patrick King has one, I have one. Filming that sequence probably required 5 or 6 of them.” She also reminisced on the giant bird she wore on her head for the 2008 film’s wedding scene, in which she also wore a structured Vivienne Westwood gown. “When I saw this bird, I thought the colors were so magnificent,” says Parker. “When I came to set [with it on], Michael was like, ‘Why is there a bird on your head?’”
As for more recent style hits from Parker? The star pointed to her many Vogue covers over the years, her latest one being in December 2021, shot by Dan Jackson. Turns out, it was a shoot that earned her some major cool-mom points. “I showed my daughters,” says Parker, “and both of them went, ‘You’re on the cover of Vogue?! That was very touching to me.”

9 Long Orange Dresses That Will Help You Channel Carrie Bradshaw’s Valentino Look in And Just Like That…

You can tell just how impactful an outfit is these days by the number of internet searches it gets. Years after the creation of Google Images—owing to Jennifer Lopez’s iconic Versace jungle print dress—fashion searches continue to stand testament to an outfit’s acclaim with Carrie Bradshaw‘s look in the And Just Like That… finale. The episode, which aired on February 3, sees Sarah Jessica Parker’s character dressed in a voluminous orange Valentino gown, picked from the house’s spring 2019 couture collection. Within the next 24 hours, searches for “Valentino dresses” increased by 1,085% while those for “long orange dress” increased by 194%, according to Love the Sales, a fashion e-commerce aggregator.

While this is not the only buzz-worthy fashion moment from the cult-favorite show, this dress in a rarely seen color—and the fact that it was worn for an important moment in the show—takes the cake. Mainly associated with summer and all things uplifting, the color is a guaranteed head-turner. In fact, the happy hue has made headlines quite a few times of late—namely when worn in the form of a short Carolina Herrrera dress by Zendaya, a Giambattista Valli one with a train by Bella Hadid, and a Benchellal blazer dress by Priyanka Chopra. And when paired with the right statement accessory (like Bradshaw’s fuchsia pink gloves), even the most low-key of orange dresses is bound to look remarkable.

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.

The “Sex and the City” reboot, “And Just Like That,” hasn’t disappointed fans with its fashion.The show, which follows the characters Carrie Bradshaw (played by Sarah Jessica Parker), Miranda Hobbes (played by Cynthia Nixon) and Charlotte York (played by Kristin Davis), has delivered several standout fashion moments that reference beloved pieces from the original series (i.e. Bradshaw’s wedding shoes), as well as include new sought-after garments and accessories, such as bags from Gucci and Balenciaga’s Hacker Project.
“What we brought in new was just updating it. Making it more modern. Working with new designers, new young designers, internationally,” said Danny Santiago, one of the reboot’s costume designers, in an interview with WWD. “Because of Instagram, we were able to find all these new people that we could bring in. But again, sticking to what the girls had already as far as their types of looks.”

Here, WWD breaks down some of the best fashion moments from the “Sex and the City” reboot, “And Just Like That.” Read on for more. 
The Manolo Blahnik “Wedding Shoes”

“And Just Like That” started off with a fashion Easter egg in the first episode where Bradshaw brings out her beloved blue satin Manolo Blahnik Hangisi pumps — which she calls her “wedding shows” because she wore them when she married Mr. Big in the first “Sex and the City” movie — to wear to York’s daughter’s piano recital.
The fun fashion moment didn’t last long, as Bradshaw’s shoes were ruined after she came home to find her husband dying of a heart attack in the shower.
The Oscar de la Renta Dresses

The reboot’s first episode introduces the audience to York’s now-teenage children, Lily and Rock, who attend the former’s piano recital in matching floral dresses from Oscar de la Renta. Lily, played by Cathy Ang, wears the Rosette cocktail dress, while her younger sibling Rock, played by Alexa Swinton, reluctantly wears a maxi version featuring the same floral design. The dresses matched that of their mother, who wore a similar floral dress from Lela Rose.
The Fendi Purple Sequined Baguette Bag

Following Mr Big’s death and her return to her West Village apartment, Bradshaw seemingly went back to her fashion roots, wearing an oversize tulle white skirt paired with a striped sweater.
She again dips into her fashion archives by pairing the look with her iconic Fendi purple sequined baguette bag, which made an appearance in the original series’ third season in a memorable scene where Bradshaw gets mugged on the street.
The Unknown Dress

Controversy ensued before the reboot aired when paparazzi shots captured Parker dressed in a paisley print dress that was initially labeled as a piece from Forever 21. The possibility of Bradshaw wearing a dress from the fast-fashion retailer came as a surprise to many who were used to the character exclusively dressing in high-end designers.
The controversy soon dissipated after the show’s costume designers revealed the piece was purchased at a vintage store years earlier and didn’t come with tags, therefore it was unclear what brand the dress came from.

Nevertheless, the outfit — which was finally seen in the third episode — became one of the more standout looks from the season when Bradshaw paired the look with a handbag from the Gucci and Balenciaga Hacker Project and shimmery heels by Terry de Havilland.
The LTW Raglan Dress

One of the show’s newcomers is actress Nicole Ari Parker’s Lisa Todd Wexley — known also as LTW — who becomes friends with York through their children’s school. Wexley invites York and her husband over for a dinner party where she wears a Rianna + Nina vintage raglan dress in the brand’s carnival print.
She paired the look with her signature chunky jewelry, including a Patricia von Musulin ebony and amber necklace, Mark Davis Jewelry bangles, a Monies black oversize bracelet, Emefa jewelry ring and We Dream in Colour swan earrings.
The Fendi Look

“And Just Like That” has seen several other style stars emerge, including real estate agent Seema Patel, played by Sarita Choudhury. Patel wears several chic outfits throughout the season, including a brown georgette shirt and matching satin skirt from Fendi’s fall 2021 collection, the first designed by Kim Jones, in the fourth episode.
She paired the look with other high-fashion accessories from Valentino including a gold belt, studded platform sandals and the Roman Stud handbag.
The Leopard Print Suit

Patel had another standout fashion moment in episode six wearing a brown leopard print suit from Etro, which she paired with Linda Farrow sunglasses and Verdura Jewelry.
The Norma Kamali Diana Gown

Prior to the season airing, photos of Parker on set wearing a light blue bodycon dress by Norma Kamali went viral as fans quickly started referring to the look as the “new Carrie Bradshaw dress.” Many described the look as a more mature version of Bradshaw’s iconic “naked dress,” which was a landmark fashion moment in the original series.
Bradshaw wears the Norma Kamali dress during episode seven when she goes on her first date following Mr. Big’s death. She paired the dress with a vintage Max Mara blazer.
The Vintage Jean Paul Gaultier Suit

Perhaps one of her more polarizing looks, Bradshaw went for a vintage moment in episode seven wearing a gray suit paired with a brown polka dot shirt, red tie and purple jacket from Jean Paul Gaultier’s spring 1997 collection.

The Smoking Outfit

Fans were left puzzled when photos of Parker on set were released of her wearing what seemed like one of the most bizarre outfits in Bradshaw’s history. The look consisted of a pink gingham Batsheva house dress, undone Mary Jane heels, a blue hoodie, a patterned hair scarf and purple dishwashing gloves.
The look made its appearance in the show’s eighth episode where it was made clear that Bradshaw’s look was in fact intentional. As she was weening her cigarette usage to just one a day, she stated that if cigarette smoke lingered on her clothes it would hinder her progress, therefore she wore a specific outfit to take her daily smoking break. 
The Versace Mille Feuille Dress

Episode eight brought back another beloved piece from the original “Sex and the City” series: Bradshaw’s Versace “Mille Feuille” dress that she wore in the original show’s two-part series finale. The dress made its debut while Bradshaw was in Paris with then-boyfriend Aleksandr Petrovsky, who coined the dress’ name because of its many tulle layers.
The dress returns in the reboot series during a scene where Bradshaw is going through her fashion archives, bringing it out to impress Patel and saying she only wore the gown twice (once in Paris and once while sitting in her apartment to eat a whole thing of Jiffy Pop).
Bradshaw ultimately wears the gown again at the very end of the episode after making amends with her younger downstairs neighbor, who tells Bradshaw that she’s cool.

Carrie Bradshaw Just Brought Back One of Her Best Dresses From Sex and the City

Since And Just Like That hit the airwaves in December, fashion-lover Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) has been wearing outfits that are a mixture of the old and new. In some episodes she wears new pieces like a Carolina Herrera shirtdress; in others, she revives old classics that she first wore in her Sex and the City days, including her trusty blue Manolos and Fendi Baguette bags. In the latest episode, however, Carrie returned to one her best Sex and the City–era dresses of all time—you may recognize it from her disastrous trip to Paris in Season 6.
If you’re a diehard fan of the original show, you’ll remember that Carrie moves to Paris to be with her new artist lover, Aleksandr Petrovsky. (She ends up lonely, and Big comes to her rescue and returns her to her beloved New York). In the two-part series finale, she gets all glammed up for a night out with Petrovsky, wearing Atelier Versace’s Mille Feuille gown with an epic tulle skirt (it’s reportedly valued at $80,000). Only the boyfriend never shows up, and she ends up falling asleep in the glamorous creation in her bed.
In episode eight of And Just Like That, Carrie busts out the dazzling gown once again to show it to Seema Patel, her real-estate agent/friend. “Do you want to see something amazing? It is my pride and joy,” Carrie says. “I’ve only worn her twice. Once in Paris. And once here, just for fun. I sat at that window and ate a whole thing of Jiffy Pop.” While the gown seems to have never gotten her epic night-out, Carrie has clearly held onto her for sentimental value. Who can blame her? But she does say that eventually she’ll pass it down to Charlotte’s daughter Lily, who has been helping her with her clothing archiving. Lucky girl.

Hobbes, who is played by Cynthia Nixon, also made an impact on searches, specifically with the Loewe balloon bag that she wears in the episode’s opening scene, which caused searches for the design house to jump by 168 percent.
Played by Kristin Davis, York also made an impression on viewers for her Go Silk pink rose-detailed blouse and Alexander McQueen white midi skirt. Searches for pink blouses increased by 223 percent and searches for white skirts increased by 294 percent.
One of the first episode’s biggest nods to the fashion of the original series and movies,  Bradshaw’s Manolo Blahnik “wedding shoes” caused searches for the footwear brand to jump 391 percent.
Aside from fashion, “And Just Like That” had an impact on Peloton, which saw its stock prices plunge following the premiere where the character Mr. Big, played by Chris Noth, has a heart attack and dies after completing his 1,000th at-home ride on the Peloton bike.
Love the Sales’ data did not include searches for Peloton, however, according to Google, “Mr. Big Peloton” was a breakout search following the episode.

There’s been a lot of buzz around what the fashion will look like on new Sex & The City reboot, And Just Like That, which premieres on HBO soon. It’s no wonder why: Carrie Bradshaw—portrayed by Sarah Jessica Parker—is one of television’s most notable fashion icons, thanks to her closet of impeccable designer dresses and Manolo Blahnik heels. Sure, we’ve already gotten several glimpses at what Carrie, Charlotte, and Miranda are going to wear in 2021, but it’s still one of the year’s most anticipated shows for the outfits alone!

It’s only fitting, then, that for the series’s big premiere in New York City, Parker pulled out a major style moment herself. On the red carpet, the star chose to pay tribute to her well-dressed character by choosing to wear one of her and Carrie’s favorite designers, Oscar de la Renta. (Remember the Oscar wedding dress Carrie tried on in the Sex & the City movie? An unforgettable moment, if you ask us.)
Photo: Alyssa Arminio
Parker nodded to Carrie by choosing an Oscar evening dress that had a classic, uptown-worthy feel. The custom dress and cape was designed by Oscar’s Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia, and featured a sweetheart neckline, beading throughout, and a full tulle skirt that’s meant for twirling (a clever nod to the opening credits of the original show, in which Carrie twirls around in a now-infamous ballerina skirt). Parker then accessorized the refined look—which was styled by Molly Rogers—with custom SJP Collection heels, titled the “Duchessa,” in a pretty rose satin. The look wouldn’t be complete without a stiletto—it is after all another Carrie signature.

For finishing touches, Parker carried a bag by Erdem and wore sparkling jewelry from Fred Leighton, Larkspur and Hawk, and vintage costume jewelry. Overall, it was the perfect modern take on what Carrie would wear to a big movie premiere today—something that mimics the fresh, current lens that And Just Like That’s costumers Molly Rogers and Danny Santiago have been infusing into the show. (So far, Carrie’s new looks have included the classics—like this viral Norma Kamali dress—and brand-new pieces, like a Gucci x Balenciaga bag that’s hot off the runway.) If the rest of the series’ fashion is as good as Parker’s look tonight, though, we may have just officially found our new favorite show.

‘Sex and the City’ Reboot: A Closer Look at the Fashion Moments So Far

Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte are back as if they’ve never left.Since the “Sex and the City” reboot, called “And Just Like That…,” has commenced filming, most of its cast members have been seen sprinkled throughout various locations in Manhattan. Eager fans have seen some of their favorite characters in neighborhoods like the East Village, Upper East Side, Meatpacking District and SoHo, to name a few.
And while it has been more than 17 years since the original show wrapped and over a decade since fans have seen the whole crew, including Samantha Jones, together in the franchise’s second movie, it looks like the show’s essence of individual style remains alive.
From classic Manolo Blahnik pumps to iconic WNYC tote bags, the outfits worn by Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw, Cynthia Nixon’s Miranda Hobbes and Kristin Davis’ Charlotte York are still uniquely true to their characters. (While Nixon is photographed carrying a Bernie Sanders canvas tote, the Fendi baguette bag also makes its triumphant comeback on Parker.)

Though Patricia Field, the show’s original designer, isn’t involved this time around, her longtime codesigner Molly Rogers is. There is currently an Instagram account called @justlikethatcloset dedicated to all the outfit details to the upcoming reboot. The profile has already accrued over 100,000 followers since its creation. Additionally, the satirical Instagram account @everyoutfitonsatc, run by Chelsea Fairless and Lauren Garroni, has also been updating many fans on the filming BTS and fashion. The popular account has more than 700,000 followers and counting.

When HBO Max announced a reboot in January, it was revealed that Parker, Nixon and Davis would all be returning to reprise their roles in the 10-episode revival. Chris Noth, Mario Cantone, David Eigenberg, Willie Garson and Evan Handler will also reprise their roles as John James “Mr. Big” Preston, Anthony Marentino, Steve Brady, Stanford Blatch and Harry Goldenblatt, respectively.
In September, Garson passed away after a battle with pancreatic cancer while the reboot was still filming.
However, Kim Cattrall, who played fan-favorite Samantha Jones, will not be returning for the project. Though her absence will be addressed, according to HBO executive Casey Bloys.
“Just as in real life, people come into your life and people leave,” Bloys told TV Line. “Friendships fade, and new friendships start. So I think it is all very indicative of the real stages — the actual stages of life.”
The reboot will also show that Carrie’s social circle will actually grow as half a dozen new characters are introduced. Included in the lineup are Sarita Choudhury, Nicole Ari Parker, and Karen Pittman, who will play Seema Patel, Lisa Todd Wexley and Dr. Nya Wallace, respectively. Bridget Moynahan, who played Big’s ex-wife Natasha Naginsky, has also been seen on set.
Earlier this month, Parker and Noth were seen filming in Paris, which made fans eager to know what’s to come for the couple.
In October, HBO Max announced that “And Just Like That…” will premiere sometime in December.
