For footwear, Cynthia had on a pair of bright pink heeled boots, and she carried a green purse in her hand.
Carrie’s outfit, meanwhile, wore a pink coat which closer resembled a dressing gown.
Since the reboot of Sex And The City, the character’s outfits have fallen flat for loyal viewers.
Fans have speculated that the lack of cohesive style for And Just Like That is due to the absence of costume designer Patricia Field.
Former costume designer Patricia spoke to WWD in May 2021 about not being involved in the show’s reboot.
The interview took place only a few months before And Just Like That season one was released, but fans had already noticed her absence.

Patricia explained that she couldn’t work on the reboot and Emily in Paris simultaneously since one was filmed in NYC and the other was filmed in Paris.
‘But I told them to call my very dear friend Molly Rogers, who also worked in my store back in the day. She did Sex And The City with me from start to finish. She knew it well, so she’s doing it. My dance card was full.’
She also talked about the joy that she gets from her job.

‘I enjoy what I do. I feel like I do it intelligently. I have a philosophy of my own. Basically, I like happy clothes. So I have tended to do successful romantic comedies through the years.’
Patricia continued: ‘I do know that people enjoy watching my creations because they’re mine. They’re original.
‘I’ll put together things that nobody else would put together. Everything comes from my brain and my eye.’
She has also worked on projects such as The Devil Wears Prada, Ugly Bety, Second Act, and Younger.
