SJP and Chris North on the set of "And just like that"

The most annoying couple in New York history has FINALLY been spotted together as Sarah Jessica Parker and Chris Noth try to bring the ol’ “Carrie and Big” spark back. They do not seem thrilled to see each other, to no one’s surprise who ever saw them together for more than ten minutes.

It’s nice to know that some things remain consistent, we suppose. Like Carrie’s absolutely horrendous history with hats. We remain unsure as to whether SJP’s costuming is supposed to rekindle that old quirky Carrie style or whether it’s parodying it. The dress and shoes are fab, but the hat and bag turn the whole ensemble slightly obnoxious.

[quote] Like Carrie’s absolutely horrendous history with hats. We remain unsure as to whether SJP’s costuming is supposed to rekindle that old quirky Carrie style or whether it’s parodying it.

I feel bad saying this, but it's true: the crazy looking hats and brooches Carrie wore were always intended to distract attention from her face. She has bold, strong features and was styled to look pretty and dainty, and that's just a mismatch, so placing jarring objects in the frame was a way to balance out the distracting face.

The thing that distracted from her long face was her riot of curls.

by Anonymousreply 12August 4, 2021 11:05 AM

I think the cognitive dissonance these photos engender is because modern sixtysomethings are styled as if they were still thirtyanything. This could have been a charming tale of love and life amongst senior citizens, but the characters are being styled in such a way that the audience doesn't know what we're looking at. Are we meant to believe that these are young people? Because that ship has sailed.

Noth looks like a million other older Italio-Irish guys in New York. Could be the retired president of a small college, or head of a law firm in his last years there, or retired police captain. Lives in Nassau or Westchester County now.

SJP (and many others) should look at the way 40+ women styled themselves in times past and consider taking a page from their book. Stop insisting that we view you as being young girls, because we won't. That isn't who you are any more!

I don’t mind that the actors got older, because I think there’s so much potential for the storyline of these actors. They’re more mature, and their views on life and their relationships have changed. We all age, that’s a fact even though every poster on DL is 23. SATC has always been a show about lifestyle and fashion, so why not show an elegant and mature version of Carrie and the other actors?

But looking at the pictures, it seem like a rehash of everything we’ve seen before. Carrie’s still rocking the same hairstyle and the look of the Forever21 dress with that shirt screams homeless. And she’s apparently still fighting with Mr. Big. I hope I’m wrong and they surprise us with a great storyline, but I have very little hope.

by Anonymousreply 37August 4, 2021 5:19 PM

We've seen her hair in photos like the one where she's having lunch with a strung-out Andy Cohen, her hairline has receded and she's got gray for a good six inches. Clearly they're putting one of those Melania-style wiglets over her natural hair and blending it together. That probably limits her to a straight or very lightly waved hairstyle.

He was NEVER great! He dumped her for being ‘too complicated,’ married a ‘simpler’ woman, then immediately began an affair with Carrie. That was a pretty good sign of what type of person he was.

One of the show’s better moments was when they showed how devastating the affair was for his wife, but Carrie STIILL ended up with him at the end, despite the show establishing that he only wants what he doesn’t have. He was a total asshole, but then, she wasn’t much better, so I guess you could say they deserved each other.

Big as the unattainable seemed to be the point of his role. It's always a mistake when these people get together. Having him be "the one who got away, but really was never going to happen" was probably the only way they could really play this out without killing the premise of the show. He could have been a recurring character, showing up just often enough to keep the romance going, but not often enough to be the main story arc. This would have forced the writers to either make Carrie the eternal single gal or marry her off to a less cartoonish boyfriend than the ones they actually constructed.

R57, They’ve actually started filming it in Rhode Island this month, but stopped because of a Covid positive (which means one of the actors, hair/makeup/wardrobe for the actors, or director tested positive). And with the possible strike happening on Monday, it might be a while.

I’ve noticed that a lot of Caucasian curly-haired actresses’ hair will straighten and stay straight as their career becomes more successful: Nicole Kidman, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Debra Messing, Keri Russell, Julianna Marguiles. Curly hair is considered “character”.

It sounds like they've already added on a "woke" character played by Sara Ramirez who's probably only been added to call out the women on everything they've done wrong so that no one will write BuzzFeed articles about how poorly the show has aged and how terrible Carrie is. Which she is. She's a horrible person and I'd love for her to lose Big, realize that relationship wasn't built to last, and maybe have a character arc and change for the better.

If this show ends up being the same old, same old, there's no point. If they do that, it'll reek of empty fan service and come actors as cheesy.
