The entire Sex and the City franchise has left an indelible mark on modern popular culture — and on our wardrobes.

Fans will recall Bradshaw’s plans to marry his complicated love Mr Big at the New York Public Library – but the groom got cold feet and left her humiliated at the altar, wearing the now-iconic wedding dress . She then had to work through the heartbreak of rejection, with the help of her three best girlfriends Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte.

Her wedding dress has been referenced ever since, with the design instantly recognizable as that of British designer Vivienne Westwood, thanks to its structured corset and puffy fabric.

The new spin-off series from the world of Sex and the City had everyone talking last year, as we welcomed Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), Miranda Hobbs (Cynthia Nixon) and Charlotte York (Kristin Davis) and the followed as they navigate life in their 50s.

We watched three of the show’s original four characters (minus Samantha Jones played by Kim Catrall) deal with death, grief, sexuality and relationships later in life, and of course wear stunning fashion while doing it.

Fans loved spotting recognizable pieces from the original series and first-season movies, including Bradshaw’s style signatures from the show, like his Manolo Blahnik heels and Fendi Baguette bag.

AJLT costume designers Molly Rogers and Danny Santiago said last year that Bradshaw would wear items from his famous closet again, reflecting the times and our renewed focus on sustainability in the industry. of fashion – something that was much less considered when the original show aired in the 90s and 2000s.

“Carrie is one of those people who likes to go on an adventure or mine for something she hasn’t worn in a while and put it back on,” notes Rogers. “If you’re aware of what’s going on in the world, you want to give back in some way.

“Even the characters on the show have that spirit. We try to reuse pieces from the SJ archives in important times when they meant something, because we wanted to honor them.”

The question that remains to be answered is why Bradshaw is wearing the famous wedding dress again. Is she walking down the aisle again? Nothing is confirmed yet, but we can’t wait to find out.
