So it’s officially been 10 years since our fav fashion queen and journalist Carrie Bradshaw strutted down the aisle at the New York Public Library decked out in Vivienne Westwood. And to mark the momentous cinematic occasion, the British fashion designer has now created a series of gowns inspired by the very special movie moment.


Although the big day (lol!) didn’t exactly turn out roses—concluding with Carrie being jilted at the alter—she did at least look totally sensational style-wise. In the film we see Carrie swap her original choice, a vintage skirt suit, for the Cloud dress, gifted to the character by Westwood herself following a Vogue fashion shoot. Naturally…


The Cloud dress first appeared in the designer’s Autumn Winter 2007/08 collection but then was re-designed especially for its film debut. Its appearance had a hugely positive impact on the label’s sales which had risen by almost a fifth to £17.6million a year after the movie was released.

‘Being in Sex And The City helped a lot. It brought new customers to us and increased awareness of our labels across the world,’ Carlo D’Amario, chief executive of Westwood, previously told the Evening Standard.
