Happy 20th anniversary Sex in the City!
The Sex in the City series turned 20 on wednesday, though can you really believe that it has been a whole 20 years since we were first introduced to the renowned Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall), Charlotte York (Kristin Davis)and Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon)? It has been forever since the series began it's first ever debut on HBO, though the wild, friendship-focused series will continue to hold a special place in our hearts.
Throughout the sex-season duration of Sex and the City', we've cried, cringed, and blushed on numerous occasions...
1. The Post-it break-up
When Carrie was dating Jack Berger (Ron Livingston), this was a romance that was filled with as many happy moments as their was low points. The greatest fail was perhaps when Berger broke up with Carrie on a Post-It note. Seriously... and following this, she was put under arrest for smoking weed. It was disaster.
2. Carrie falls on the Runway
Does anyone else remember the time when Carrie fell flat on her face in season 4 on the runway at New York Fashion Week? Looking hot as anything and serious, it was so awkward when she fully fell head over heels. She handled it like a pro nonetheless. Stanford (Willie Garson), exacerbated the cringe factor when he yelled "Oh my god, she's fashion roadkill!", as well as Heidi Klum who stepped over her. I'm embarrassed.
3. The Rabbit
We know the show's title Sex and the City, suggests that sex will come into game at some point, but we were not, expecting Charlotte, of all the characters, to cancel her plans with her friends to spend the night with her vibrator... Always proper and the prude of the group, it came as a shock when she found the Rabbit and was refreshingly honest about having a thing for it.
4. Shoe registry
After having "misplaced" her shoes at her friend's house, Carrie tries everything possible to retrieve them. All the while she was shoe-shamed because of how expensive they were and because of her singleness. Do you remember what she did then? Carrie registered for the marriage of Carrie to Carrie and put the pair of Manolo Blahnik as the only thing on her list. Smooth. She had her shoes replaced and it was the best.
5. Carrie farts in bed
During 'The Drought' episode, Carrie farted in bed, and this wasn't just with any of her lovers, but with her beloved Mr. Big (Chris North). Awful timing.
