Carrie Bradshaw's Return-To-Dating Dress Comes in 20 Colors

By Bella Gerard

If you haven’t already manically binged the latest episode of And Just Like That, scroll all the way down to the shopping section of this story to avoid spoilers and skip right to the very cute dress. If you have watched—let’s discuss! Finally, Carrie is back on her feet and ready to dip her toes into the dating pool (as advised by both her editor and Oprah, NBD) and of course, our girl had to school us all in first-date fashion. Carrie Bradshaw’s date dress has been living in my head rent-free since I first saw it in behind-the-scenes photos of filming back in 2021, and for just $215, it can be yours in any of 20 colors. Yep, that many.

Trying On the New "Carrie Dress" For Size, Sex Appeal, and Comfort

By Sarah Wasilak

And Just Like That costume designers Molly Rogers and Danny Santiago needed six samples of the blue Norma Kamali dress Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) wears in episode seven of the HBO Max hit series. It's the look she chooses for her first foray back into the dating world (don't pretend you weren't wondering what she'd wear . . . ), and it's not a bad choice. It's formfitting, it works as a great piece to layer with, and it's effortlessly sexy when teamed with a silver-foiled Max Mara blazer, Aquazzura jewel-strap heels, and Paco Rabanne snake-effect metal clutch.

Norma Kamali Pre-Fall 2022

By Emily Mercer

For pre-fall, Norma Kamali turned out all the stops to debut a celebratory, bridal-forward collection. Although the designer had previously designed one-of-a-kind bridal looks in the ’90s, for 15 years, her pre-fall collection started when the designer had offered to design a princess-inspired gown for the daughter of a close friend. A handful of dress samples later, Kamali (who is also engaged) wanted to expand the assortment to offer the collection for any bride-to-be.

Norma Kamali Pre-Fall 2022

By Laird Borrelli-Persson

Norma Kamali is and always has been pro-woman. For pre-fall she’s also pro-princess (bride). The impetus was her own impending nuptials and the assignment to create a dreamy wedding dress for the daughter of a good friend, who happens to be a neuroscientist with fairy-tale good looks.

For about 15 years starting in the mid-’90s, Kamali designed custom bridal looks, including for one Cynthia Germanotta, whose daughter Lady Gaga wears it in her video for “You and I.” This time around Kamali’s offerings are off-the-rack and aimed at a variety of brides (Disney princess, Jessica Rabbit, and so on). “They’re modern, they’re easy to take care of,” said Kamali on a call, adding that they are relatively affordable. “The amount of money you spend on a gown doesn’t necessarily mean that that gown is more beautiful, or it isn’t more fantastical or magical, or makes you feel any better because you spent more,” she said.

Norma Kamali on the New "Carrie Bradshaw" Dress, Her Iconic Diana Design

By Halie LeSavage

When Sarah Jessica Parker was seen on the And Just Like That... set in a draped, powder blue bodycon dress by Norma Kamali, fans recognized the look as pure Carrie Bradshaw, if not a little more grown-up than her looks from the original Sex and the City. They might not have known that the latest Carrie dress is a $215 style Norma Kamali first introduced more than forty years ago.

Kamali was excited to see her dress appear on the show, but she didn't expect fans to be familiar with its history. "I’ve been doing this for 53 years. So a lot of the people who are buying the Diana now have no clue or could care less about the fact that that dress was done such a long time ago," the designer tells BAZAAR over Zoom. "They know Norma Kamali today."

Why Norma Kamali’s Diana Dress, Beloved By Carrie Bradshaw, Has Barely Changed Since The ’70s

By Alice Cary

Norma Kamali, the woman behind the Carrie dress 2.0 – the baby blue ruched bodycon number Sarah Jessica Parker wears in the Sex and the City reboot, And Just Like That – has experienced unprecedented demand for the design. “It’s as if we’re giving it away,” Kamali says over Zoom from her home in New York.

The Diana dress, it turns out, has been flying off the shelves for the best part of a year. Thousands sell per week, with retailers keen to stock up the moment it sells out. “I can truly understand why people love it,” she muses. “It fits a moment in time.”

The Special Meaning Behind Carrie’s Blue Dress From ‘And Just Like That...’

By Emma Childs

One of the most memorable style moments from Sex and the City was the slinky, gray bodycon dress worn by Carrie Bradshaw, aka Sarah Jessica Parker, in Season 2, episode 15. (You may know the formfitting number as the “Carrie dress.”) The surprisingly understated look became a cult favorite for fans. And according to recent photos of Parker, who wore a similar dress while filming And Just Like That..., the curve-hugging silhouette will be revived for the show’s reboot. Parker’s new “Carrie dress” is Norma Kamali’s Diana Gown. And as opposed to the party girl spirit of Carrie’s ensemble from Season 2, her new outfit reflects a more mature and evolved fashion aesthetic.

“I think Carrie Bradshaw is iconically linked to the fashions that represent the show’s original time period, which was playful, feminine, and timeless. But [Parker] has a different body now and is aging with power,” Norma Kamali says to TZR. “I think the draping and the color of the Diana Gown matches her energy as Carrie now.”

Sarah Jessica Parker Has Found A New “Carrie Dress”

By Alice Cary

There are endless outfits from the original Sex and the City series that fans have committed to memory, but there’s one particular dress that stands out. The body-sculpting LBD (more charcoal than black, to be specific) that Carrie Bradshaw – aka Sarah Jessica Parker – wears in season two, episode 15 is nothing short of iconic....

Glimpses of the new installment And Just Like That – which is currently being filmed in New York City – suggest that there’s another potential “Carrie dress” in the works. Unlike her hero ’90s LBD, her 2021 style comes in an elegant powder-blue shade.

Perhaps It's Time to Redefine Classic Style

By Gina Marinelli

Classic style can stand the test of time, but the makings are often as unique as each person you’d ask to define it. Among a sample of seven fashion insiders — designers, stylists, content creators, and more — are seven perspectives on what actually constitutes classic and timeless fashion. The findings challenge the idea that obvious basics — trench coats and white tees — make the cut (although, for some, they sure do!) and help redefine “classic” as any piece of clothing that speaks to your truest sense of personal style.
