Now we can breathe a sigh of relief together—And just like that has finally ended. No more cowering at Miranda’s aggressions, no longer taking her eyes off Brady’s sexual escapades, and no longer listening to Carrie’s absolutes. whoever Who will hear that her husband is dead. We know, we’ve seen! You should have called 911. But today, I’m here to share a different perspective, regarding Carrie’s Last Dress in Paris.
If you haven’t seen the finale yet, consider this a major spoiler warning, because I have a lot to say. About every single character! First, the good – Miranda dyed her hair red again! It seems that she doesn’t succumb to societal beauty standards; It felt like she was rediscovering herself. However, Steve’s complete absence from the finale broke my heart. He needs to close the door! OK, maybe I also need to close.
As for Charlotte, her backstory isn’t nearly as bad as Miranda’s, but she definitely gets a bad ending when Rock cancels their own mitzvah and she has to step in. But that part gave me that fluffy warmth? While Carrie and Miranda argue in the bathroom, Charlotte’s real BFF, LTW, comforts her and reassures her that she is a great mother and friend. This is the best friend Charlotte has always dreamed of!
Moments later, Carrie cancels Charlotte’s invitation to Paris because Miranda won’t go (to be honest, that’s weird), further confirming that — just like Samantha — Charlotte needs to leave these two for good.
But the part we’re here to talk about today is Carrie’s final storyline. No, not the entire solo-new podcast’s final plot. For me, the show ended in Paris, because that ending scene was so cheesy it was unbearable.
After meeting Big’s brother for lunch, Carrie declines his request to have Big’s ashes returned to his family’s final resting place—though, like, perhaps they also wanted to visit him and he was currently in a box in Carrie’s closet — and decided instead scatter his ashes in Paris.
I’m pretty sure it’s illegal, but I get it. Dramatic feeling on the brand.
And to scatter that ashes? Carrie was wearing a ridiculously beautiful gown. From the flowing off-shoulder sleeves to the tangerine color to the little bow detail at the back, everyone loves this dress. While they haven’t officially announced the designer, my money is on Oscar De La Renta, a Bradshaw (and SJP) favorite.
But what really makes up the look? Hot pink evening gloves, a trend we were anticipating after seeing them all over the Spring/Summer 2022 runways. Gorgeous! And always rooted in harsh reality (except, you know, the whole thing about not being able to scatter ashes in Paris) Carrie has to get rid of them to send Samantha a message.
I leaned on the evening gloves great number of recently, and anyone will tell you the most frustrating part is not being able to use your phone. However, I really think we can all suspend our cynicism and let her move on! But no, they went out, because And just like that The writers have made it clear that they are not fans of whimsy.
Although I do wonder why we would believe an adult man’s ashes would fit into Carrie’s Timmy Woods Beverly Hills Eiffel Tower clutch bag. Also, not sick, but impossible to empty – what will she do with the ashes left inside?
I don’t know if And just like that will extend for second season, and to be honest, I’m not sure I want that. Revisit the final scene as I suggested and leave Carrie in Paris, dressed in a gorgeous gown, eager to meet Samantha for a long-awaited cocktail. That feels right to me.
