Even Carrie Bradshaw’s Wardrobe Isn’t Safe From A 2021 Conspiracy Theory


First there were the rumours about Mr Big (Carrie appears to be wearing a bracelet with the initials CBP – Carrie Bradshaw Preston, presumably – but leaked script circulated a few weeks ago suggests that their marriage might be either over or on the rocks.) Now, _SATC__ conspiracy theorists have sunk their teeth into another mystery related to _And Just Like That: is that paisley maxi dress from Forever21? Or isn’t it?!

SJP wearing a printed maxi on set for And Just Like That


If you have no idea what we’re talking about, here’s a quick refresher. When SJP was spotted filming on July 27, the internet, as it does, was quick to try and pin-point what she was wearing. And when it came to the maxi dress, most outlets settled on – shock, horror! – the high street chain Forever 21. Carrie, as we know, is a fan of pairing a $10 vintage dress with $500 designer heels, but Forever 21? That’s about as on-brand as the beat-up plimsolls she had to wear home when her shoes – Manolo Blahnik’s crystal-embellished silver mules – got stolen at a children’s party.

But then the plot thickens. @andjustlikethat, the fan account that is widely regarded as the most reliable source when it comes to the show’s outfits, has stated that it’s thrifted. And if that wasn’t confusing enough, other fashion websites have started to report that the dress is actually from Raga, an LA-based brand that has posted a picture of SJP, wearing its Avah Ruffle Strap Maxi Dress, on Instagram. (The dress is $145 but has now sold out.)

It looks like it might be an open and shut case of the internet getting it wrong (then right) where this dress is unconcerned. Mr Big, on the other hand? That mystery will have to remain unsolved until the show airs…

Carrie Bradshaw

The last time she wore a ‘bird’ on her head, Carrie was marrying Mr Big (/hitting him with a bouquet of roses when he left her at the altar). Now that things have come full circle, if rumours are to be believed, perhaps she’s setting the mood for whatever meeting this is? (The polka dot skirt is Carolina Herrera; the hand-painted bag is by artist Rebecca Moses.)

As well as digging out her beloved Fendi Baguette, SJP’s also resurrected this studded belt from Streets Ahead. As eagle-eyed fans will remember, the eye-catching accessory made its debut in the first movie, cinching the waist of the rose-printed dress that she wears to go apartment-hunting.

Charlotte was always the girliest of the foursome (now threesome) with a wardrobe full of hairbands, pearls and pastel dresses, but this pleated polka dot skirt is from Balenciaga, high fashion’s most directional label.

As a corporate lawyer, Miranda always aced modern power dressing. A few decades on, things haven’t haven’t changed. Clearly, the costume department knows their way around a wide-legged trouser. Am I right?

We shudder at the thought of the costume department’s shoe wardrobe (it must be similar to when our heroine found herself let loose in the cupboard at Vogue), and love these patent and super stacked Mary-Janes.
