Sex and the City costume designer Patricia Field explains why she's not taking part in the revival
"I wasn't able to be in New York doing that and be in Paris doing Emily in Paris," Field told WWD of having to turn down the gig working on the HBO Max revival And Just Like That. "But I told them to call my very dear friend Molly Rogers, who also worked in my store back in the day. She did Sex and the City with me from start to finish. She knew it well so she's doing it. My dance card was full."
Both Sex and the City and Emily and Paris are created by Darren Star.
Aside from designing fun looks for Emily in Paris star Lily Collins on the hit Netflix comedy, Field keeps a very busy schedule between working at her New York gallery ArtFashion and on select consulting projects. She does make time, however, to catch up with longtime friends including Kim Cattrall, who also opted out of appearing in And Just Like That.
"Me and Patricia field, a dear friend and confidante," Catrall captioned a photo of herself and Field last week on Instagram.
Though some faces from the original series won't be returning to the show, there will be plenty of new talent joining Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon. It was recently announced that Grey's Anatomy alum Sara Ramírez will portray the franchise's first nonbinary character, a hilarious podcaster with a big heart named Che Diaz.
And Just Like That is set to begin shooting in late spring.
The story of Sex and the City continues as Carrie, Charlotte, and Miranda navigate life, love, and friendship in their 50s.
