One of the reasons I loved SATC was the fashion. I even liked some of Carrie's more eccentric looks on her. This is just not remotely what I expect a fashionista with a banging body and lots of money to wear. WHY?!

I keep reading that a lot of these outfits are decoys to throw us off the real fashion scent. I surely believe this is.

True, it's billowy/bulky enough to be concealing a different outfit underneath. And the gloves could be to prevent us from seeing if Carrie is wearing engagement/wedding rings.

My friend was in New York last week, and she has a set of videos of this because she came across them filming. One video is of SJP filming in this outfit, and she runs up the stairs right after. She also has video of her in the same place where she is in something  much more "high fashion" and heavily styled coming down the stairs. It was so ugly, I didn't even notice how bad this one looked until I saw the blown up picture.  The other one looked like they wove a bouquet of roses in her hair, she has a possible braid that looks like a raccoon tail, some sort of metallic possible check pattern greenish (?) top, and a Russian tapestry-esque billowy red, gold, and black floor-length skirt going on. My friend is far enough away, it is hard to tell for sure, but it ain't pretty on the small, small phone screen.

I hope Charlotte's clothes are better. She's one of my all-time fashion icons. For me she is right up there with Jackie Kennedy, Audrey Hepburn, and Grace Kelly.

Big gets killed off...

Why are they doing this revival, again? Who is this for, exactly? 

I know it is premature to judge the series before it airs, but as a big fan of OG Sex and the City, my expectations for this are currently under the floor. Self preservation, perhaps.

I feel the same way.  And considering the second movie was such a bomb and we never got a third one, it will really hurt if this show is a huge disappointment.

I LOVE a good bubble hem. I need more dresses with bubble hems. They were THE thing in 1988/1989/1990 and I loved them.

In 1988 when I had the legs for it I had a "poof skirt" with that hem, although the length was closer to a mini-skirt. I think they were in fashion for one season and then gone. I may still have it in a trunk somewhere because I kept odd fashion items like that.

I read an article last week and I can't recall where I saw it. I have no idea whether it was a reliable source (I had never heard of it), but it explained Samantha's absence this way...

Spoiler

Carrie and Samantha have a falling out after Carrie fires Samantha as her publicist, so they are no longer speaking. 

I feel as though if this angle had come out, it would be more widely reported, unless I totally missed it.

I'm skeptical - it doesn't make sense.

Spoiler

Sam is a publicist and owns her own PR company; she wouldn't be having Carrie act as her publicist. If anything it would be the reverse. And I'm sure there is no way they would write Carrie firing Sam.

Right. And after all their years of friendship, if this one thing is what broke their friendship then they weren't ever really good friends to begin with. I think Carrie and Miranda have been shitty to one another in a worse way earlier in the show and it was merely a hiccup. 

Samantha took a job for a high profile client overseas and they don't see much of her. See? It's not hard to graciously explain her absence. But it really comes down to MPK and SJP and the writers and how petty or vindictive they want to be. Don't underestimate the power of ego and people wanting to make little digs in the writing/storytelling because they didn't get what (or in this case, who) they want. 

I just hope they have enough respect for Samantha to just let her be happy. No need to tear down a pillar (some would say, the most popular pillar) of the series.

Spoiler

Besides, it's bad enough that they're going to take Carrie and Big away from us - assuming the writing on the wall is clear and that they are killing him off. Another thing that is not necessary.

Not to mention the speculation that Miranda

Spoiler

is going to cheat on or leave Steve for a woman. 

I get that Cynthia Nixon is a lesbian, but just like with Carrie and Big we didn't go through 6 seasons, 2 movies, and 17 years for a revival to pull everything apart. 

They have a slew of new characters added on to the "new chapter" in their story. There's no need to tear down what we all have been invested in from the original ladies when they can use the new characters as vehicles to show

Spoiler

losing a spouse/being widowed, a lesbian relationship, etc. 

Maybe the many speculations are wrong and all will be well. But maybe not and that's the disconcerting part.

Quoting for context. I interpreted the spoiler as: 

Spoiler

Samantha, as Carrie's publicist, fires Carrie as her client.

Which, if I were Samantha, I probably would too. 

Spoiler

Carrie became completely insufferable. It was cute in the beginning but as the Biggage grew by leaps and bounds, Carrie became exponentially self-centered and annoying.

If I were to reboot this thing, I'd have Carrie divorced, because she and Big were not actually compatible.  She'd have split when the za-za-zou transitioned into boredom for her, instead of emotional intimacy.  Big would give her a nice settlement, and she'd have the income from her books, but now what?  Newly single, older and hopefully growing wiser, she has to reinvent herself with the support of her good friends.

Charlotte, having done all the things to get her daughters into the right schools, now finds herself with time on her hands and a passion to open her own art gallery, with the support of Harry and her good friends.

Miranda and Steve would be the Brooklyn parents of teenage Brady.  Miranda would no doubt be trying to be supermom, superwife, and superlawyer in a time when kids have the internet, Steve owns and manages a chain of bars, and her good friends are trying to reinvent themselves.   She quits her job and starts her own business advising women on how to open their own businesses, with her good friends as her first clients.

Ok, maybe these ideas I just came up with in 30 seconds are not awesome or dramatic, but they aren't tragic and depressing.  Please, show, don't be tragic or depressing!

in terms of Sam being a publicist. But I also find it hard to believe that Carrie, as annoying as she can be, would be annoying in a way where Sam would need to fire her as a client. Who is Carrie, really? She's C-list in America and B-list at best in NYC. She's a columnist. Even if she wrote another book, the release of her first book went fine. She's not the kind of celebrity, she doesn't have the kind of scandals, that gives publicists fits. Carrie's brand of annoying is nothing to a publicist.

They could make something up where Carrie suddenly turns into Lindsay Lohan at her nadir, or tweets something racist (or how about biphobic, considering that cringeworthy ep) and then handles the fallout poorly instead of listening to her publicist Sam, but I doubt it.

Based on the new trailer I've getting the strong feeling that Steve and Miranda are the ones divorced. And that maybe they decided to go the Cynthia Nixon in real life route and have Miranda discover late in life that she's a lesbian? 

Those are just my guesses, because we saw plenty of Carrie/Big and Charlotte/Harry in the trailer, but no Miranda/Steve. We did see Miranda having lunch with a new woman though- not that it's date, but it could be.

I don't know, that's what I'm thinking. Does anyone else think so too?

I'll be disappointed if this is the case, because I loved Miranda and Steve. Even if they decide to keep them friends.

Women should be able to do what they want with their bodies/hair. I get it, as a woman myself. But, JMO, I think the long hair on SJP ages her horribly based on the photos. But, again, that's just my take. If she's happy with it, fine.

I am sort of surprised that Cynthia Nixon went with her natural hair instead of dyeing it red again, but good for her!

Being you mentioned Carry’s hair, I’ll chime in.  Her hair parted in the middle is horrendous.  It accentuates her nose.  If she parted it on the side, it would look better IMO.  The long strings hanging down is too much already for her age.  It’s a horrible look on her.  I would change hairdressers and get a new doo.

Vulture is reporting that:

Spoiler

Noth has been edited out of the finale.

Apparently, they shot a fantasy sequence of Big and Carrie on location in Paris and it’s now being edited out of the finale entirely allegedly due to the ongoing accusations against Noth.  The show claims that they decided the “minimal” footage was deemed “unnecessary” to the finale which is about Carrie finding “closure” by spreading Big’s ashes.  Which, come the eff on, you do NOT go to the effort and expense of filming on location IN PARIS for “minimal” “unnecessary” footage.

Below is a tip sent to the Instagram handle deuxmoi. Unsure how to post a clip from an Instagram story to here, but here is the transcribed text:

Subject: Special Guest Star to Appear on AJLT

Message: This award winning lead actor on a premium network show is going to be making a special appearance on the channel's hit reboot. Look for him as a special guest star who comes between the relationship of two characters (including your favorite non-binary character). The main character, who is going through a mid-life crisis and gave up her career and marriage for them, will walk in on our guest star being pegged by the non-binary character, while he is dressed like a tortoise and they are dressed like a hare. Things will get steamy and strange when this returns for season 2. 

So to recap: Miranda walks in on Che, dressed as a hare, pegging Award Winning Lead Actor, dressed as a tortoise. 

I wonder who the award winning lead actor is. What have Sex and the City fans done to deserve this? Michael Patrick King hates this franchise and the viewers.

It sounds like a fever dream.

Has TPTB decided to make more of a mess of the already messy show...Kim Cattrel is probably laughing hard at all this while patting herself on her back for not being a part of the reboot.

Lol! I had to look up B-roll. Makes sense now!

If the hare and the tortoise scene really is true, I won't even hate watch anymore.  

Would the person who plays Che even agree to such a demeaning, stupid scene? That doesn't make sense. Maybe MPK should be the tortoise and SJP the hare. And my apologies to all tortoises and hares.

I don't even know what is happening here. Charlotte looks insane, but sort of in a tea party/socialite Barbie steampunk way. Lisa Todd Wexley's dress is spectacular but her hat looks like Covid. 

SJP's aforementioned fuchsia ensemble is lovely. Producer guy is hot. Is she dumping him here, tho?

These pictures depress me. Not only are the fashions still ugly (with the exception of the fuschia dress!), but it's just a signal that this horrendous shitfest will be back on the air sooner than later.

At least I won't be watching (I bailed a few episodes into S1).
