Sarah Jessica Parker is seen in THAT controversial maxi dress thought to be from fast fashion brand Forever 21 while filming Sex And The City reboot
Just weeks ago she sparked controversy as many believed that she wore a maxi dress from fast fashion brand Forever 21.
And Sarah Jessica’s character Carrie Bradshaw committed yet another fashion faux pas as she wore the dress twice.
The 56-year-old actress was seen on set of Sex And The City reboot, titled And Just Like That, on Sunday wearing the patterned maxi dress that left many fans of the show up in arms.

No detail was missed as she had her hair primped by hair stylist Serge Normant while filming on location by Bethesda Fountain at Central Park in New York City.
She wore the flowing dress over a blue button-down shirt and accessorized with a still-to-be released double-designer Gucci x Balenciaga monogrammed bag and £275 Terry de Havilland heels.

The outfit certainly earned mixed reactions, with some commenters complaining that the character wouldn’t wear it.
‘So Carrie went from stylish and sexy to frumpy?’ one complained, while someone else wrote: ‘Forever21 really? On a 50-something. Patricia Field would never…’
‘No. Can’t you let us dream a bit? Forever 21 is a no,’ said another.
Uh oh: The controversy began at the end of July when Instagram fan account, And Just Like That Closet , found a photo of Carrie’s dress allegedly from a past season
Oh no! Some fans insisted Carrie would ‘never’ wear Forever 21, and are particularly upset about the franchise including a fast fashion brand
‘We all have loved living vicariously through Carrie because she would wear what many people couldn’t afford to wear on a daily basis. Especially as a freelance writer in the beginning of the show. We love the escape and the fashion is what I live and die for, so to speak. Not to speak for us all, but F21 is not what we want queen Carrie wearing. Please put her in that gorgeous and often quirky glam we so love,’ one woman chimed in.
Many of the critics took issue with Carrie buying from a fast fashion brand, pointing out that the disposable, cheaply-made clothes are bad for workers and the environment.
‘Carrie in fast fashion?’ asked one fan, aghast, while another added: ‘Not Forever 21 Carrie! Please don’t be wearing fast fashion I bet you.’
‘Shows off in her boho chic ensemble’: However, it was all a mistake as the dress is actually by a brand called Raga which is sold at Anthropologie, Nordstrom, and Mod Sense
‘Not Forver21 please! A bankrupt fast fashion brand that should really just disappear forever. SJP would never do that and so sad to see Carrie in it,’ said one more.
However, it was all a mistake as the dress is actually by a brand called Raga which is sold at Anthropologie, Nordstrom, and Mod Sense.
The brand confirmed it was one of their pieces last week as they shared images of Sarah on set with the caption: ‘@SarahJessicaParker as Carrie Bradshaw wearing our Avah Ruffle Strap Maxi Dress. #SJP shows off in her boho chic ensemble for the SATC revival “And Just Like That” [cityscape emoji]’
The dress is currently sold out but had originally retailed for the modest price of $145.
In a leaked script passed to Page Six for the forthcoming series, Carrie reveals while dining with BFFs Stanford Blatch (played by Willie Garson), Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) and Charlotte York Goldenblatt (Kristin Davis) that she isn’t in a good place.

HBO Max’s press release detailed that the show will ‘navigate the even more complicated reality of life and friendship in their 50s.’
Fans first got hooked on the Darren Star-created series over six seasons, from 1998 to 2004, before two feature films followed in 2008 and 2010.
The first movie made $415million in 2008, its sequel fared less well but still earned $288million.
A third planned movie failed to happen amid the growing rifts fueled by Cattrall with SJP.
