Patricia Field Talks About The Costumes On “And Just Like That…”, And Said Cynthia Nixon Doesn’t Get It
And Just Like That…hasn’t even caught its breath from the recent wave of unsavory association it found itself in last week, and already it’s being dragged into more drama. Except for this time, it’s a good old-fashioned feud. Much like Kristin Davis’ recent throw-down against the haters whispering about her face, we’ve got another hater hating on one of the core ladies of the show. Patricia Field, iconic costume designer for Sex and the City, decided to give her two cents on the fashions of And Just Like That…, and just like that, we learned that Patricia probably didn’t get along with Cynthia Nixon that well when she was fitting her for Miranda’s serious lawyer pantsuits.
Patricia Field isn’t doing the costumes on And Just Like That…, because she’s busy dumping berets on Lily Collins for Emily in Paris. But Patricia worked on Sex and the City, so that gives her some authority to speak on the current wardrobe worn by Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte. Surprisingly, her comments were not limited to a single question about what kind of I-got-dressed-in-the-dark nonsense those three are wearing episode to episode. The styling on And Just Like That…is done by Molly Rogers, who is a former colleague of Patricia’s, and generally, Patricia likes what she sees. At least on Sarah Jessica Parker. Here, let’s let Patricia take it away! via Entertainment Tonight:
Asked to share her opinion on the fashion in And Just Like That…, which was cultivated by former colleague Molly Rogers, she admitted, “I like some of it, I don’t like all of it, but I know what Molly’s dealing with.”
“I know those gals! Sarah Jessica [Parker] thinks she knows everything – and she does. Cynthia Nixon thinks she knows everything – and she doesn’t! Even today, when I speak with Molly, it’s about Cynthia. I say, ‘I remember what you are going through.'”
Um, so I guess Patricia voted for Cuomo?
Among the ten million times Kim Cattrall spoke out and said she didn’t like working on Sex and the City, was the time she said that it felt like she had a toxic relationship with her co-stars. And I always thought that was a direct dig at Sarah Jessica Parker. But what if it was Cynthia Nixon?! I can’t pass judgment either way, because this is a Pat Said vs. No Response Yet situation, as Cynthia has yet to talk about this. And before I pick a solid side, I need a definitive answer on one thing. This outfit… including mock belted white slacks and a collarless Mormon church teen blouse. If that was picked by wardrobe and challenged by Cynthia, who lost, then yeah – Cynthia has good instincts. But if that was the result of Cynthia yelling, “This IS present-day Miranda!!“, then I’m sorry, but yeah. Patricia was right to receive an exasperated phone call.
