‘The Carrie Diaries’ Fashion: What Carrie And Larissa Wore

Whew, a lot happened on The Carrie Diaries last night. Like, A LOT. Carrie confronted Weaver, Bennett searched for a new job, Maggie had pregnancy complications, Mouse tried to spice up her relationship with West, and Sebastian continued to be a beautiful angel on Earth. Carrie also won a trip to Paris, but wasn’t there to claim her prize and will forever be known as “the girl who didn’t go to Paris.” JK, that nickname was doled out to Lauren Conrad long ago. As usual, we got the deets on Carrie’s wardrobe from the show’s costume designer, Eric Daman, so check them out below!

The episode opens with Carrie checking out The New York Post and–surprise!–finding out that Weaver called her “diminutive,” “phony,” and, worst of all, “suburban” to Page Six. Eric told us, “Carrie reads The New York Post’s ’Page Six’ every day, but wasn’t expecting to see herself being called diminutive. I wanted her look for this scene to be anything but. I was really looking to have that idiosyncratic Carrie style shine through and let her look keep a sense of whimsy while her mood darkened. The photorealism “Funland” print pencil skirt from Topshop fit the bill (and fit AnnaSophia Robb’s cute curves like a dream!). By pairing it with the Opening Ceremony navy polka dot crew neck, the look stays chic and just serious enough to balance the fab T&J turquoise, floral statement necklace.”

Style chameleon Larissa rolled into work in the above look, excited to hand out beepers. Her entire aesthetic in this season is more trendy and ’80s than we’re used to seeing from Larissa and that, according to Eric, was entirely intentional. He explained, “When Larissa gives beepers to her work mignons she had to be a coordinated trend vision. I was inspired by 80’s beat boys and Neneh Cherry, of course, for this beeper fashion extravaganza”

After being forced to work on the weekend, Carrie and Bennett are hoping to change their fates at the Paris party, which Samantha mentions she can get them into. Eric explained that Carrie’s look had to be both work and party appropriate and make Weaver #jealz. That’s a lot to achieve with one outfit, so Eric spilled the deets on how he chose her look, saying, “Her look had to go from work wear to chic soiree. When I saw this knit number from Torn by Ronny Kobo I knew it was perfect. The sexy, sassy fit and flare shape is a great day to night silhouette and lets Weaver know what he’s missin! The baroque graphic design is right at home on the Interview set and perfection for a Paris themed party. Paired with purple Kate Spade pumps and neon color block Paula Cadematori purse keeps it Carrie-licious.”
