‘Sex and the City’ stylist takes a tour of Cynthia Nixon’s fashion prowess

Sex and the city Costume designer Patricia Field shared a less than flattering assessment of actress Cynthia Nixon’s sartorial prowess.

Two-time Emmy winner Field was an integral part of the original Sex and the city series, as well as the two spinoff films, with its costume choices for the glamorous characters inspiring fans and fashion designers.

However, the stylist doesn’t seem to have the best memories of working with Nixon, who reprized her character, Miranda Hobbes, in And just like that … alongside Sarah Jessica Parker (Carrie Bradshaw) and Kristin Davis (Charlotte York Goldenblatt).

In an interview with Great Britain Sunday Times, Field shared her feelings about the new show, which she couldn’t work on as she was already under contract with the Netflix series. Emilie in Paris, which is filmed in the French capital.

After suggesting that Molly Rogers, who worked with her on the original show, take her place on the reboot, Field told the newspaper about the looks she saw: “I like some, I don’t like everything. , but I know what Molly is up to. “

“Well, I know these girls! Field added, as she expanded on her statement. “Sarah Jessica thinks she knows everything, and she knows it.

“Cynthia Nixon thinks she knows everything – and she doesn’t! Even today, when I speak with Molly, it’s about Cynthia. I say, ‘I remember what you’re going through.'”

News week has contacted a Nixon representative for comment.

Elsewhere in his interview with Sunday Times, she spoke about Kim Cattrall, with whom she is closest “socially” to the original The stars of Sex and the City.

With Cattrall failing to reprise her role as sex-positive publicist Samantha Jones in the reboot following a public fall-out with co-star Parker, Field said of her absence, “It’s a void. I hear it everywhere. . Everyone’s crazy that she’s doing it. Don’t be in it. “

In the first episode of And just like that …The absence of Cattrall’s character was explained early on, with conversations between the characters revealing that Samantha had moved from New York to London for work.

Field told the New York Post that she would happily work on a spinoff project with Cattrall, getting excited earlier this month, “I’d love to do a show with her.”

However, that doesn’t mean she takes sides in the Parker-Cattrall feud, as she has known since the mid-1990s.

She told the newspaper: “I knew Sarah Jessica from before [the show] because we made this movie in miami called Miami Rhapsody, and basically that’s how I got the job Gender and city.

“They made a pilot, and nobody liked the clothes. And Sarah Jessica just grabbed me and said, ‘I want to introduce you [Sex and the City creator] Darren Star. She knew my vibe. She understood the tutu. It was great working with her because she loved fashion … [We were] Two peas in a pod. “
