20 Things You Might Not Know About Sex and the City
Costume designer, Patricia Field, dressed the characters on the show and came to be known for the outrageous looks she made for Carrie in particular. The world took notice of the outfits — Field won an Emmy in for Outstanding Costume Design — which still resonate with fans today. Which brings us to the mystery SJP solved. Or did she purchase two separate pairs and mix them together herself? Are they a metaphor for her inability to choose between Aidan and Big?
We couldn't help but wonder, is everyone else freaking out over the fact that it's been 15 years since Sex and the City aired its last new episode? We're talking, of course, about the two feature films—one, a hit; the other, less so—and, perhaps more importantly, the drama surrounding the reason why we'll never, ever get a third one. And while the real-life feuding amongst the women who played one of TV's most iconic friend quartets would have Carrie and Samantha shaking their heads, the fact that not everyone got along all the time is hardly the only revelation that's come to light since the show signed off after six satisfying seasons. But I think the show ultimately betrayed what it was about, which was that women don't ultimately find happiness from marriage. Not that they can't. But the show initially was going off script from the romantic comedies that had come before it.

I was too young to be a first-run fan of Sex and the City. But my first college roommate had six prized possessions: each season of the show in glossy boxes containing a handful of DVDs each. It was , half a decade after the series had ended. Many things had changed our cellphones could get on the internet! Watching that show for the first time as a college freshman, I took it in on a surface level. I argued with my roommate about which characters best represented us I was a Miranda and she was a Charlotte, I was convinced. We completely missed the point.
