SATC: 2 Days to Go!!!

hello all! in honor of the final two day countdown to the premiere of the Sex And The City movie, i'm going to give you my top five favorite looks that Carrie ever wore! this has taken a lot of deliberation because there are so many beautiful outfits throughout the series, but i think i've narrowed them down pretty well. here they are, in no particular order:

#1. from episode 34 "Boy, Girl, Boy, Girl" i adore this outfit that Carrie wears ice skating with her bi-sexual boyfriend Sean (also Rachel's assistant boy-toy 'Tag' on "Friends")! season 3 was the season that i loved the most-- not only do i think that the episodes from that season including the whole Carrie/Big affair were the best of the whole series, but i think SJP never looked more beautiful! her hair was beyond gorgeous, that darker underneath, lighter blonde highlights on top with the loose curls? beautiful! in episode 40 "Easy Come, Easy Go" when Samantha throws the part at her new apartment and Carrie first confesses to her about the Big affair, there is a moment when Carrie is looking out of Samantha's window and i think it is her most beautiful moment of the whole show!

#2. from episode 92 "Splat!" next to the above discussed shot of Carrie in Samantha's window, i think that this might be SJP's second most beautiful look in the whole series! this pale blue Marc Jacobs dress is soooooooo breathtakingly beautiful, and i also love love LOVE her hair here, it's almost the same style as in Season 3 except it's darker and a little more beachy. i also really enjoyed actress Kristen Johnston's cameo as Lexi Featherston, the obnoxious party girl who Carrie catches snorting coke in the bathroom and then sees fall out the window to her untimely death!

  1. #3. from episode 19 "The Chicken Dance" i was absolutely smitten with Carrie's gauzy pink Donna Karan dress from this episode the moment i laid eyes on it! i was determined then (at age 16) to model my own wedding dress after it, i loved it that much! looking back now, i still really like the dress, but i have to say i thought Carrie's hair looked awful for a lot of this season, very drowned rat-esque. anyways, here is the beautiful poem Carrie wrote for the couple who were married during this episode:
His hello was the end of her endings
Her laugh was their first step down the aisle
His hand would be hers to hold forever
His forever was as simple as her smile
He said she was what was missing
She said instantly she knew
She was a question to be answered
And his answer was "I do"

#4. from episode 61 "The Good Fight" this adorable Roberto Cavalli outfit appears at the very end of the show, as Carrie leaves her apartment wearing it. when Aidan is moving in with her, they try to clean out her closet, and it's an outfit she decides to throw away to make more room for him. i would never throw this outfit away, and thankfully, neither does Carrie. i think SJP looks striking with her hair pulled back into this clean bun that really showcases the intricate design of the shirt, and the white skirt (slip dress?) also looks flawless.

#5. from episode 84 "Boy, Interrupted" finally last but not least, i love this simple striped Ella Moss dress, i think it's beautifully made and very interesting, and naturally, SJP looks perfect in it! i really also liked her hair at this period in the show, she was growing it out from Season 5's short, chin-length cut, and it was very sleek and simple. i didn't really care for her hair super short, especially when she wore it big and curly, i thought it was disastrous and made her face look even longer and skinnier than it is naturally.

we all know that there are many, many more beautiful outfits Carrie wore and many more that i also loved (and am probably forgetting about at the moment) so tell me what your favorite outfits of hers were! what about her worst moments? ugliest outfit? and don't tell me it was the outfit from Season 1 that she wore to the picnic, that's too easy!

I love the Donna Karan dress too. I've been trying to find a way to make a dress like it -- have any ideas where to start?
