From 1998 to 2004, we watched Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda navigate their lives in New York City. Yet, through failed romances, marriages and everything in between, they always had cosmos and each other! Of course, we all envied Carrie’s wardrobe and wished she was offering fashion courses. We also have to thank the HBO series for adding Post-it note breakups, Mr. Big and cosmos into the lexicon. Now, as we pay homage, let’s hear all the facts about our favorite show that we never knew even after watching every episode countless times!
Ah, the iconic opening credit tutu! Again, where do we sign up for SATC fashion courses? Apparently, only Sarah Jessica Parker and the costume designer, Patricia Field, wanted this tutu for the opening. Field bought it from a bargain bin for only five dollars. Out of the four outfits brought as options for the shot with the bus driving past Carrie, we know which won. Now, the producer, Michael Patrick King has the pink tutu framed in his office. We bet the frame cost more than it!
Out of the four stars, Parker was the only one with a no-nudity clause in her contract. Wow, that’s ironic considering the title and subject of the show. Power to you Parker!
