Sarah Jessica Parker has revealed that the bright blue Hermès bag that Carrie Bradshaw wore in the 2002 episode of Sex and The City is a fake.
na new episode of Life in the look of Voguewhich has seen celebrities sit down and discuss their styles over the years, Parker revisited the outfits her character wore in season five of SATC.
Bradshaw was seen wearing a green Juicy Couture mini dress and red stiletto heels, carrying a large blue electric Birkin.
At the time of filming, Parker and husband Matthew Broderick were expecting son James, who was born in October 2002.
“I can tell you everything I know about this outfit,” she said Vogue. “Okay, that’s not a real Hermès bag, you know.”
Parker said the show’s costume designer, Patricia Field, contacted Hermès and offered to get a real Birkin for the show.
“No, I don’t really, I don’t need one,” she recalled telling Field at the time.

The actor also revealed that Field chose such a large bag with the intention that it would cover the swelling of her growing baby.
“I was super pregnant; We did our best. Look how big that bag is. I mean that bag only has one job to do, and it does that very inefficiently,” she said.
“Perhaps if it was a real Hermès bag, it would do better.”
The Hermès Birkin bag is coveted by the fashion world, being one of the company’s most recognizable designs. It was first introduced in the mid-1980s and is named after British actress and singer Jane Birkin.
Although the Birkin bag Bradshaw showcased was not real, Parker explained that this was not the case for her mini dress.
“The dress is real; The dress is real and its Juicy couture. These are colors that I don’t normally wear, they’re very bold,” she said, adding that Bradshaw’s pregnancy style is significantly different from hers.
“I really didn’t dress like that when I was pregnant, because I worked a lot of the time.
“But when I was pregnant, I mostly just wore overalls,” she says.
