A few questions popped to mind when the idea of a Sex and the City reboot was floated last year. There was, of course, the issue of how the cast would keep up in an increasingly woke, digital world where pretty much everything from the way they obsess over men to their casual homophobic comments wouldn’t fly today. There was a debatably more pressing—and still unanswered—question about what they’ll say has happened to Samantha Jones. And then there was the conversation about the climate. An early aughts Carrie Bradshaw wouldn’t think twice about shopping excessively, but would the 2021 version shop with sustainability in mind?
Since And just like that… began filming in New York City last week, we’ve been inundated with paparazzi and fan photos of the cast, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristen Davis and Cynthia Nixon, on set, including previews of their highly-anticipated style. In amongst the colorful dresses and crazy hats (love you, SJP), those who look closely have been noticing items from Carrie Bradshaw’s original wardrobe pop up. There was the studded belt she wore in the original Sex and the City movie, and, albeit a new colorway, Carrie still loves a Fendi Baguette.

Also of note and another question to add to the list: “Is Anthony Marentino is a zaddy now?!” I mean, all signs point to yes:
