‘The Carrie Diaries’ Fashion: What Carrie Wore

After a brief hiatus The Carrie Diaries returned with Carrie still dating Weaver (#hey), but also still fostering feeling for Sebastien (#hey). She’s also enrolled in a big time writing class at The New School, so her need to look stylish in the city is at an all-time high. As we’ve done all season, we chatted with Eric Daman, the show’s costume designer, about Carrie’s looks from the episode and the decisions behind her costumes.

After being hounded by Weaver about writing all week, Carrie is like, “BYEUH Weaver you’re annoying/not supportive.” Though he’s QT, she made the right decision, IMHO. Eric gave us the deets on her look: “We wanted to keep Carrie’s big break up moment a surprise, so I opted for a really fun, playful and iconic Carrie look. The bustier shoe print dress by Eva Franco was perfect! Shoes?!? All over a dress!? Carrie LOVES shoes and I love this dress for this classic walk-and talk SATC style stoop scene. The lime green and pink Kate Spade cardi with plastic flower embellishment was the ideal layer to keep AnnaSophia Robb warm on a cool night and look cool and colorful for the scene.”

Back at home in Connecticut, Carrie gets herself a #swaggy new coat. New coat, new weather, new Carrie, TBH. Eric explained, “Carrie’s new coat was a big part of this episode’s story so I really wanted to find something amazing that would POP. We tried on quite A LOT of options during her fitting but the moment AnnaSophia Robb put on this orange seamed coat by REISS we knew it was the one. The fit was almost perfect (we have practically everything altered to be tailor made for her cute petite frame), the color was fall fab, and the silhouette mature and demure enough for a young lady to be taken seriously at The New School.”
