Gallery 'Sex and the City': Here, star who plays her and designer who dresses her share the real stories behind some hot looks. More May 19, at That outfit got to tell so many stories, and it was such a romantic outfit and it was so delicate and it had so much grace to it, and it ran around Paris, and that was not how she had imagined that outfit.
But it saw a little less action: They crochet this gown for a doll and the gown is really big, and then you just put the doll over the toilet-paper roll and it sits in their bathroom.
I always found that hysterical. When we shot [the next-to-last episode], Carrie was waiting for Aleksandr to come to her hotel room in Paris, and in the end he showed up very late. That gown is huge. I set that gown over the bed, and it literally covered the bed. It was the perfect princess moment. Then, when I did the first movie, we first see Carrie outside of Tiffany and she?
That was like saying to my audience,? This is my greeting to you: I can make little jokes. I know how to speak to them in the language of the wardrobe. But when we did the first movie, there was a pair of [Dior gladiator sandals] that I brought to [Parker] that she just loved. Every time we needed a pair of shoes, she would always grab the same ones. And I would say,? Sarah Jessica, Carrie never wears the same thing twice!?
Those shoes started a trend that is still going on. But it was produced long before I was born. Any time that thing molted, I saved every feather. When we finally found a place to work it in, it was such a victory. He was just like,? Oookay, you have a bird on your head,? I put a bird on my head for him!? Please just name the dollar amount.? And they were like,? No, we want the bird.?
I teamed it with a petticoat under a gown, a lavender-and-white, bicolor thing. That, to me, was a nod to the original petticoat and the T-shirt that we all know so well from when she got splashed by the bus, and all of the nods throughout the series to the ballerina effect.
