Oscar de la Renta in SATC

Our favourite moment


In memory of Oscar de la Renta, we recall one of our favourite moments whereby an episode of Sex And The City featured the inimitable designer and his work.

In Season 6 of the show – during which Carrie Bradshaw is dating Russian artist, Aleksander Petrovsky – Carrie shows interest in an Oscar de la Renta gown. She reads a description, ‘Sleeveless, silk, faille, full-skirted dress with black patent leather bow belt; now that is pure poetry.’ To which Alexander reveals (note the first-name familiarity): ‘Oscar is a good friend of mine, I’ll tell him you like the dress.’

Later on in the episode, Alexander casually gifts the dress to Carrie for their date to the ballet.

Cue wardrobe-related envy on a phenomenal scale.
