Inspired by The Farewell director Lulu Wang 's call to action at the Independent Spirit Awards, we celebrate women filmmakers working in their field. Watch the video. Carrie has no luck at a baby shower: Stanford snatched the last good gift from the list, and host Kyra makes everybody take off their shoes. Carrie's Manolos disappear and Miranda insists she should be compensated. While she grumbles singles don't get any gifts after graduation, Samantha learns even her bravado is helpless when it comes to children. Miranda meets and instantly falls for handsome new upstairs neighbor Dr. Robert Leeds. After Harry moves in, Charlotte obsesses about his habit of leaving dripping teabags around the apartment; the next day she learns he walks around stark naked in the morning.
Something about it still speaks to the core of who we are as fashion-forward women, and so many of the lessons we initially learned from the show still ring true for us today. She decides to "register" herself at a Manolo Blahnik store, forcing her friend to replace them by proxy. When Carrie's beloved Mac computer suddenly deletes all her files , she takes it into the laptop doctor wrapped in a pashmina scarf. Enough said. Carrie and her then-beau, Aleksandr Petrovsky, pay a visit to McDonald's after a date at the ballet—an occasion that truly calls for the pretty Oscar de la Renta dress she was wearing. Big to handle.
Before the HBO series Sex and the City began its six-year run in , the world had suspected that women were enjoying guilt-free sex sometimes when they had work the next morning, too. But until the show came along, this idea had never been expressed in such an unapologetic tenor on mainstream television. It made you want to travel back to , to find Diane Keaton dragging her sorry self around the singles joints of that earlier, grimier New York in Looking for Mr Goodbar , and tell her: "It doesn't have to be like this" - possibly before addressing her as "girlfriend". The frothy newspaper columnist Carrie Bradshaw Sarah Jessica Parker and her friends - Samantha the hedonist Kim Cattrall , Miranda the miseryguts Cynthia Nixon and Charlotte Kristin Davis , who wears a gaping smile seen predominantly on lobotomy wards - raked over their chaotic love lives, treating with ribaldry those subjects usually only aired in sombre tones on This Morning.
Carrie and Stanford attend a baby shower thrown by their friends Kyra and Chuck. Upon arriving, they discover that Kyra's house rules include the removal of all footwear, regardless if doing so will destroy a carefully crafted outfit. The evening is pleasant enough, but when Carrie plans to leave the party, she discovers that her brand new Manolos have been stolen. Carrie winds up leaving the apartment with no compensation, and a sense of shoe-induced shame. She wonders if she has somehow made a mistake by choosing the lifestyle that she did, rather than the more traditional one chosen by Kyra.
