As Sarah Jessica Parker celebrates her birthday, we remember some of the most amazing fashion moments Carrie Bradshaw ever gave us.
1. The Brilliant Ballerina
Sex And The City’s title sequence officially made tutus cool. This insanely cute ballerina-inspired dress made a comeback in the first film where everyone voted to ‘Take’ rather than ‘Toss’ during the big wardrobe clearout – of course!
2. Triple Pin Stripes
When Carrie decided to look after then boyfriend, Aiden’s dog for the day, you didn’t think she was going to dress sensibly did you. This beyond chic getup was complete with white stilletos – not so good when little Pete ran away.
rainbow skirt that we still want in our wardrobes now. She got caught in the wind and the rain but never failed to look fabulous.
“Now that is pure poetry!”
La Renta prom dress and dancing with her man in a fast food restaurant – we have been lusting after this dress ever since.
This nude little number appeared on the side of a New York City bus to advertise her column.
When Big and Carrie went house hunting, the whole world totally fell in love with her green floral two-piece. And that Eiffel Tower clutch? Could anyone else in the world pull that off?
“I put a bird on my head!”
When Carrie tried to marry Big (sob), she pulled out all the stops to make sure she looked sensational on her big day. This Vivienne Westwood gown was the perfect choice (and boy did she have choice).
Moving to Paris with your boyfriend means you need to get off the plane looking the epitome of chic. Carrie did this better than anyone could in a lovely monochrome, striped outfit which fitted the occassion to perfection.
10. On The Town
When the sailors came to town, Carrie picked a jewelled black mini and showed off that amazing bob, guiding us all in how to do the ultimate gals night out.
