The season finale of "And Just Like That" has fashion enthusiasts talking, and The New York Times' fashion department is at the center of the debate. With compelling new looks and the return of a fan-favorite character, the episode gave audiences plenty to dissect.
🔹Carrie Bradshaw's new kitten, named Shoe (or possibly Chou, as Vanessa Friedman quips), symbolizes her new chapter in life. Friedman highlights how almost all the characters have evolved in their fashion choices, finally presenting a more cohesive look on screen.
🔹The outfits of Miranda, Simmy, and Nya underscore their growth. Only Carrie still opts for her signature sleeveless Oscar de la Renta dress, layered under a semi-sheer vintage bolero. But then, that's quintessentially Carrie.
🔹Samantha's 75-second return wasn't as impactful fashion-wise as one might hope. Her style remains unchanged: bright colors and metallics, with her Fendi First bag tying her to Carrie. The NYT's fashion department—and we—expected a bit more, especially since Kim Cattrall was styled by Patricia Field, the original stylist for "Sex and the City."
🔹The second season of "And Just Like That" did have some standout fashion moments, such as Charlotte's Met Gala outfit and Carrie's final look. However, as we look forward to the third season, we hope for more significant style evolutions for our beloved characters. So far, it's been a remix of what we've already seen.
