Carrie Bradshaw’s Legendary Tutu Cost Only $5

It is no secret that Sex & the City was a show chock-full with expensive designer labels. From Christian Dior, to Manolo Blahnik, to Dolce & Gabbana, Carrie Bradshaw’s wardrobe was a label-lover’s fantasy come to life. But did you ever wonder who designed that tutu from the opening credits? Turns out, it was a label-less designer…that cost a mere $5.

In a recent interview with the Archive of American Television, S&TC costume designer Patricia Field said, “We were going to shoot the opening credits, and so there were conferences about it and so on. I was in a showroom and there was a bucket on the floor, for like, $5 each or something, and I pull out this tulle skirt, and I’m like, ‘I don’t know, let’s just take this. We’ll see.'”

And the rest, as they say, is fashion history.
