A 27-year-old French guy seems to have gotten very bored of some woman in his life’s “Sex and the City” habit, so he put together an alphabetical compilation of every single brand mentioned in the series. Carrie and the girls are even more materialistic than we thought: there are 324 brands mentioned 838 times — and the video comes out to nine minutes! The girls talked about Tiffany’s, Birkins, Vogue, and Chanel a lot more than we thought. [Glamour, Pierre Buttin]
“It’s kind of surprising to say, but in a way ["Sex and the City"] was a more innocent time. … I think so much reality television – and the women that dominate culture today – are pretty unfriendly towards one another. They use language that’s really objectionable and cruel and not supportive. I like to remember that Carrie and the other women in “Sex and the City” were really nice to each other. … It’s the random cruelty I really don’t understand. It’s not good for us. I don’t know, you know, how we go back in time to a better place.”
Sarah Jessica Parker confessed to British Harper’s Bazaar that media depictions of female friendship have evolved for the worse, and she kind of has a point. “Sex and the City” was never about petty lady-to-lady competition. Who knows, if the girls had lived and brunched in the time of “Real Housewives” and Twitter, their world may have been very different. She also had thoughts on why Carrie Bradshaw was so relatable (even though she was also so annoying): Keep reading »
Rumors of a third “Sex and the City” movie are in the works, and I’ll be honest, I’m a little excited. I didn’t love the second movie (did anyone?), but I love the series. Like so many viewers, I feel like I know those characters and that they just get me — minus the show’s leading lady.
Carrie Bradshaw is a nightmare. She’s the worst example of a female role model I could ever think of, and an awful representation of single life in general. My fury at Carrie has gotten so bad that I find myself shouting at my screen when watching the show. I wish, more than anything, that I could shake her by the shoulders and ask how on earth she could be so clueless. Here are some things I wish I could scream at Carrie (besides “BE NICE TO AIDAN!” because that would fill hundreds of pages all on its own) — with accompanying GIFs of Carrie being annoying, naturally.

Let’s be real: the only way you could afford even one pair of Carrie Bradshaw’s shoes is if you skipped out on rent for the month. But what if I told you that you could own a bunch of Carrie Bradshaw’s shoes at once? It’s possible through the magic of art! This 18″ x 24″ print by PopChartLab features dozens of Carrie’s beloved heels from Christian Louboutin, Dior, Manolo Blahnik, even J.Crew. Plus, it’s made on recycled paper in Brooklyn (a place I’m not sure Carrie set foot in, even when when her best friend Miranda moved there). It’s the perfect print to hang while you try and manifest your dream closet. A girl can dream, can’t she? [PopChartLab]
The fashion world is up in arms at the rumor the Anna Wintour is considering Sarah Jessica Parker to take her place as the next editor-in-chief of Vogue. Sometimes I confuse SJP with her alter ego Carrie Bradshaw. They’re both New York fixtures and total fashionistas, which is why it would make perfect sense for SJP to succeed Anna Wintour and run the magazine. Well, it sort of would, if we ignore the fact that she has no editorial experience that I know of and that there are Vogue employees who have been with the company for decades and toiled their way up to an opportunity like that through years of hard work.

“I remember when we screened the first movie in London, when Mr. Big shows Carrie that closet he’s built for her and the entire audience clapped. I found that devastating. Maybe that’s a strong word, but I was disheartened. Because I thought: ‘Is this what these women in the audience think true love is? A man who has enough money to buy you a walk-in closet?’ ”
– Cynthia Nixon in this week’s New York Times‘ Style section, revealing she’s not unaware of the many worthy criticisms about “Sex & The City,” especially how money has factored into Carrie’s relationship with Big.
After the jump, Nixon also addressed, again, the controversial remarks she made last year in the Times‘ Magazine when she said that homosexuality was a choice for her. She was in a relationship and had children with a man before falling in love with a woman, which she said makes her subject to certain “litmus test(s)” in the community. Keep reading »
