Sarah Jessica Parker‘s latest outfit for And Just Like That… season two filming has been slammed by fans pining for Carrie Bradshaw’s iconic style.
The actress, 57, posed up in a pinstriped Marrakshi Life dress, a Vivienne Westwood teddy long coat, paired with blue boots from her own faux brand Duchessa Gardini, a grey fedora and a vintage Pierre Cardin bag – with unimpressed fans declaring the star looked like a ‘fancy hobo’ in the outfit.
The wardrobe for the HBO Max show is now designed by Molly Rogers and Danny Santiago – and has come under serious scrutiny after fashion icon Patricia Field, who styled Sex And The City for its six seasons and the two movies, declined to return due to her work on Emily In Paris.
Ensemble: Sarah Jessica Parker’s latest outfit for And Just Like That… season two filming has been slammed by fans pining for Carrie Bradshaw’s iconic style
One fan commented: ‘Carrie did not dress like this in the series, in SATC. Whoever is dressing her for this new show, has a bigger budget and whole different look in mind. I don’t like it. She looks like a fancy hobo.
Another wrote: ‘I love Carrie Bradshaw, always have! I just watched the whole series and both movies and her style is STILL iconic.
‘However in the new series, her style is not that of an older Carrie Bradshaw. Please bring back Carrie’s iconic style!
A third typed: ‘We know her character is mid 50s and today’s mid 50s are super stylish! I respectfully beg of you… please style her up like her fans are waiting for

Another wrote: ‘I hate how Hollywood makes them feel like once you get older you cannot show skin. Yes you can like Sam did in the old Sex and The City!’
Others wrote ‘So covered up, it’s nice but I do miss Carrie with her short dresses and showing off her shoulders’ and ‘Who said that looked good?’
Some followers came out in support of the star, saying: ‘She’s always so fabulous. I LOVE HER! Gorgeous as usual’ and ‘OMG this look slayyyyysss.’
SJP stepped out in the outfit in NYC on Wednesday where she was seen nearly getting hit by a bike during one dramatic scene.
Miranda Hobbes actress Cynthia Nixon, 56, was back to rocking red hair as she stepped out on set, appearing to be directing the latest episode.

For her work on Sex And The City, Field was nominated for five Emmy Awards, winning one, and six Costume Designers Guild Awards, with four wins.
She went on to return as costume designer for the Sex And The City movie (2008) and the sequel (2010), however she was unable to reprise her role for the reboot due to her Emily In Paris commitments.
Last month Patricia returned to the set to meet up with SATC and AJLT showrunner Michael Patrick King.
The fashion icon, 80, posed up with a chair bearing the show’s name – amid her continued friendship with SJP’s nemesis and ex co-star Kim Cattrall.
Patricia looked chic in a a black top, quirky green, yellow and red patterned trousers, and lime green brogues.
Patricia is known for her close friendship with ex SATC star Kim, 66, who played the iconic Samantha Jones, but exited the franchise acrimoniously due to her feud with Parker.
Praise: Some fans loved the ensemble and lauded the outfit in the comments

The looks: Carrie has become a fashion icon with her incredible style (pictured L in season 4 in 2001 and R in SATC The Movie in 2008)
Patricia has publicly pledged her allegiance with Kim since the show ended, and in December last year, said she is interested in doing a series with her,
The two-time Emmy winner told Page Six: ‘I would love to do a show with [Kim].’
Back in December, Patricia also slammed Cynthia Nixon over her fashion demands when asked about her former assistant Molly Rogers’ work styling the cast on HBO Max’s And Just Like That.
The Oscar nominee admitted she ‘liked some of it, but not all of it’, during an interview with the Sunday Times.

She added: ‘I know those gals! Sarah Jessica [Parker] thinks she knows everything – and she does. Cynthia Nixon thinks she knows everything – and she doesn’t! Even today, when I speak with Molly, it’s about Cynthia. I say, “I remember what you are going through.”
Speaking about Kim’s absence from the popular series, Field said: ‘It is a vacuum. I hear it everywhere. Everyone is mad she won’t be in it.’
DailyMail.com exclusively revealed in September 2017 that a third Sex and the City movie was essentially ‘torpedoed’ due to Cattrall’s excessive demands.
Cattrall reportedly demanded that Warner Bros. step up and produce other movies she was developing, or she wouldn’t star in Sex and the City 3.

Parker, Nixon and Davis were all set to reprise their roles, with production slated to happen that fall, though the project completely fell apart and never went into production.
Cattrall denied the story, tweeting, ‘The only DEMAND I ever made was that I didn’t want to do a 3rd film….& that was back in 2016.’
Tensions had reportedly brewed between Cattrall and the rest of the cast since the start of the show, which escalated when one of her only allies – creator Darren Star – left the show and was replaced by Michael Patrick King, who created And Just Like That.
The feud escalated in 2018 when Cattrall blasted Parker for talking about Kim’s brother Christopher, who was found dead in Canada, in a TV interview
‘Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now. Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your “nice girl” persona,’ Cattrall said in the post

Needless to say, most weren’t surprised when Cattrall wasn’t part of And Just Like That… with the actress revealing that she was never asked to be a part of the show.
It was revealed in the first episode of And Just Like That… that her character, Samantha Jones, is now living in London.
In February SJP also revealed that she does not want Kim to come back and reprise her role as Samantha Jones.
In a new interview with Variety, Parke was asked if she would be ‘OK’ if Cattrall was able to come back to the show if some ‘miracle were to happen,’ after their very public feud exploded back in 2018.
Proving the door is firmly shut to Cattrall, Parker responded: ‘I don’t think I would, because I think there’s just too much public history of feelings on her part that she’s shared.’
Fab four: Kim starred as Samantha Jones in six series of the show from 1998-2004 as well as two movies (pictured with Cynthia Nixon as Miranda Hobbes, Kristin Davis as Charlotte York and SJP)
Adding: ‘I haven’t participated in or read articles, although people are inclined to let me know.’
‘We didn’t go to Kim for this, you know,’ Parker said. ‘After we didn’t do the movie and the studio couldn’t meet what she wanted to do, we have to hear her and listen to her and what was important to her.’
‘It didn’t fit into what was important or needed for us. There’s a very distinct line between Samantha and Kim,’ Parker continued.
‘Samantha’s not gone. Samantha’s present, and I think was handled with such respect and elegance. She wasn’t villainized. She was a human being who had feelings about a relationship, so I think we found a way to address it which was necessary and important for people that loved her.’
New chapter: Cynthia, SJP and Kristin Davis are reprising their roles – without Kim
