Designer Miss Claire Sullivan Reworked Carrie Bradshaw’s Iconic Newspaper Dress

Reimagining Carrie Bradshaw’s Iconic Newspaper Dress With a Stylish Makeover

In a recent Vogue video, actress Sarah Jessica Parker pays tribute to her beloved character Carrie Bradshaw. Among the various signature pieces that Parker’s character wears, there is one particular dress that stands out—a newspaper-print dress. However, this dress is not the original one designed by John Galliano for Dior. Instead, it is a fresh interpretation crafted by the talented emerging designer, Miss Claire Sullivan.

The Collaboration and Inspiration

The Collaboration and Inspiration

The creation of the reimagined newspaper dress was a collaborative effort between Sullivan, Vogue stylist Jorden Bickham, and director Bardia Zeinali. The trio aimed to pay homage to the dress Carrie Bradshaw wears in the third season, episode 17 of the original series. Sullivan, being an ardent fan of Carrie Bradshaw, enthusiastically accepted the opportunity to put her spin on the iconic dress.

Designing the Dress

Sullivan examined Parker’s seven American Vogue cover images and cover stories. Working closely with graphic designer Jakob Weinzettel, they transformed these images into a custom-printed silk-crepe fabric. The aim was to create a fabric that emulated the look and feel of a newspaper.

Bringing the Dress to Life

With the fabric printed and ready and Sullivan’s draping expertise at hand, it was time to craft the dress. Layering the fabric over a built-in corset, she aimed to create a structured yet visually captivating look. Once the dress took shape, Sullivan added touches of vibrant black tulle for texture. Drawing inspiration from a vintage Comme des Garçons coat worn by Carrie Bradshaw in the show, she and Jorden Bickham agreed on incorporating a tulle shrug to enhance the overall design.

The Reaction and Fulfillment

Sarah Jessica Parker expressed her deep appreciation and emotional connection to the recreated dress, as it brought together cherished memories from her time portraying Carrie Bradshaw. For Sullivan, creating this couture masterpiece marked one of her most cherished fashion assignments to date. She describes the experience as surreal and professes that it is among her all-time favorite creations.

While we’ve all heard that age is just a number, there’s no doubt about the fact that most people forget about the octogenarians of the world. After all, they often like to live in the shadows of their retirement fund and hang out with their family while keeping their distance from the youth and the trends of today. It’s important that we don’t paint octogenarians with the same brush, though. That’s because these two are more stylish than we could ever hope to be…

A New Social Media Craze

Although the idea of a new social media craze isn’t too hard to believe, this one certainly is. Sure, each day brings a new trend and a new online icon, but nobody could have seen these two coming. That’s because the “Want Show As Young” Instagram page is everything that none of us knew we needed in 2020. These guys have style, they guys have game, and they have enough sass to throw us all into next year. How old are the people behind this Instagram account, we hear you ask? Well, they’re a married couple in their 80s that have been married for over 60 years.

Trying Something New

Yes, Wanji and Sho-er are two octogenarians from Taiwan who own their own laundromat and still work hard every single day to keep their business running. However, over the course of their lives, they have realized that some of their customers can be pretty forgetful. This often leaves them with piles of unclaimed clothes that they just don’t know what to do with. After an intriguing conversation with their grandson, Want Show As Young was born. Within this page, they dress up in the clothes that their customers leave behind and pose for the camera. They may be in their 80s, but they haven’t lost their style.

We can only hope to be as cool as these guys when we’re older.
