The dress has been dissected by And just like that closet, and Instagram fan account, which found a photo of Carrie’s dress — which is from a previous season and is no longer for sale.
She wore it over a blue button-down shirt strapped to the double-designer Gucci x Balenciaga bag, and added £275 Terry de Havilland heels.
The outfit has certainly garnered mixed reactions, with some commentators complaining that the character wouldn’t wear it.
“So Carrie went from classy and sexy to frumpy?” one complained, while the other wrote, ‘Forever21 really? On an over 50’s. Patricia Field would never…’
‘New. Can’t you let us dream a little? Forever 21 is a no,” said another.
Oh no! Some fans insist that Carrie would “never” wear Forever 21, and they are especially angry about the franchise, which includes a fast fashion brand
“We all enjoyed living vicariously through Carrie because she would wear what many people couldn’t afford to wear on a daily basis. Especially as a freelance writer in the beginning of the show. We love the escape and fashion is what I live and die for, so to speak. Not to speak for all of us, but F21 is not what we want Queen Carrie to wear. Please put her in that beautiful and often idiosyncratic glamor that we love so much,” a woman interrupted.
Many of the critics disagreed that Carrie bought from a fast fashion brand, pointing out that the cheap disposable clothing is bad for workers and the environment.
“Carrie in fast fashion?” one fan asked stunned, while another added, ‘Not Forever 21 Carrie! Please don’t wear fast fashion, I bet you.’
‘Not Forver21 please! A bankrupt fast fashion brand that should disappear forever. SJP would never do that and so sad to see Carrie in it,” said another.
Hurrah! Other FAs are overjoyed that she is wearing something they can afford
When the Instagram account pointed out that the dress is from a previous season and Carrie may have bought it as a thrift store, one dubious fan fired back: “Carrie Bradshaw would never spare f21, that’s just nonsensical.”
‘Certainly, there are other sustainable brands they could have chosen. The dress is cute, but couldn’t they have chosen better?’ asked another.
But not everyone is upset about the choice. One insisted that “it’s absolutely Carrie to pair a $7 dress with $400 heels.”
‘Omg something I can afford?? Here for it,” said another, while another wrote, “I love that the dress is from an affordable brand!”
Others called it “gorgeous” and said they “love this look.”
Throwback: The iconic white tutu she wears in the show’s opening credits was picked up for just $5 at a thrift store by costume designer Patricia Field
But she was mostly known for expensive designer looks, like this Christian Dior newspaper dress (left) or this Dolce & Gabbana dress (right).
It’s certainly not the first time Carrie has worn a bargain. She even often mixed vintage pieces.
The iconic white tutu she wears in the show’s opening credits was picked up for just $5 at a thrift store by costume designer Patricia Field.
In 2008 she told the New York Daily News that she would even visit the recently closed discount store Century 21, saying that she “bought tons and tons of clothes for all four girls here.”
But Field also said that on every show she’s styling, she doesn’t like buying pieces from popular chain stores.
‘You do not do that’ [want to dress a character in] something like H&M because it distracts [for viewers if they recognize it],’ she said fashionista.
Field is not working on the Sex and the City reboot because she has a conflict with another show, Emily in Paris.
