30 Of Carrie Bradshaw’s Most Ridiculous Outfits

Fifteen years ago, Sex and the City unleashed the mighty whirlwind of materialism and mismatching that was Carrie Bradshaw. A great many of her outfits were divine, but these were just plain absurd.

1. The look that caused a worldwide pearl shortage.

2. The hospital scrubs she cinched with what was either a belt from a leftover Halloween genie costume or a gold mesh fanny pack.

Either is highly probable.

3. The random “it’s like my ribcage is wearing a necklace” look.

Paired with a shirt she stole from one of Charlotte’s daughters.

4. The clothes she borrowed from Stanford and Big.

You know Sanford would never pair this with a big black tie. He has better sense of colors than that.

5. The top she pieced together from items found in an Atlantic City sundry shop and Beyonce’s trash.

6. The fur she wore at the weirdest times.

As though she were trying to look insane

7. Like when she went to a baseball game wearing fur and no tights and heels.

8. The huge muff she wore instead of normal gloves.

9. The sailor shirt she topped with Brady’s old shower curtain.

10. This dress with the sleeves made of sequined garbage bag.

11. In a between-Big phase when she thought about giving up writing to be his chauffer.

So she could more easily stalk him.

12. This magician’s costume.

13. The overalls that would give Cher Horowitz a rash just looking at them.

Even Carrie doesn’t like this outfit. Charlotte just can’t even talk about it.

14. This, from her bra-less western phase.

ID: 1245907

15. This, and all the other almost-normal-but-then-again-totally-bizarre things she wore on this show.

Wouldn’t you accessorize your plaid crop top and high-waisted jeans with a neon green sweatband? Come on now, if Miranda’s having all the fun with clothes in a shot something’s just not right.

16. The red floral dress with the peplums that looked to be stuffed with Styrofoam peanuts.

ID: 1245909

17. Her Mary Poppins-meets-Upper East Side mansion dweller look.

ID: 1245917

18. The time she went out on New Year’s Eve and added a fur coat, sequin hat, and pristine white booties to her pajamas to run through a blizzard.

ID: 1245927

19. This other fur/boho/hat askew look.

ID: 1245928

20. This curtain she turned into a coat with the help of a foam neck pillow.

Plus 5 for the zig-zag tights.

ID: 1245930

21. The time she wore a fanny pack with a striped skirt and made her lower half look like the American flag.

ID: 1245936

22. This, worn on her 9-hour flight to Paris.

ID: 1245939

23. Her ’80s flashback look.

To be fair, this is purposefully ridiculous.

ID: 1245941

24. The goth princess-meets-waiter look she cobbled together for Sanford’s wedding.

ID: 1245945

25. This fur muffler hat and crop top she wore to her birthday party.

Is she sad because no one showed up or because it’s dawning on her how ridiculous it is to pair fur accessories with crop tops?

ID: 1245960

26. The camp counselor costume she wore to brunch.

ID: 1245962

27. The hat she added to an otherwise normal outfit to contemplate becoming a hipster in the future.

ID: 1245972

28. The Michael Kors-meets-Victoria’s Secret look she wore to model in a fashion week show.

That was neither for Michael Kors nor Victoria’s Secret.

29. The absolutely enormous gown with the 15-foot train — that she wore to dinner.

ID: 1246002

30. The oversized tee and socks she wore in place of pants.

We wouldn’t want pants taking away from those shoes, now would we?
