'SATC' designer slams Cynthia Nixon's fashion sense: 'She thinks she knows everything'
Patricia Field said 'Sarah Jessica thinks she knows everything and she does. Cynthia thinks she knows everything and she doesn’t'
Patricia Field is a well-known costume designer who was responsible for the iconic looks in HBO’s original 'Sex and the City' series. Patricia's colleague, Molly Rogers took her spot as a stylist for the reboot 'And Just Like That' as she was busy working as costume consultant for the Netflix series 'Emily in Paris' starring Lily Collins. 'Sex and the City' was the TV cult classic of the early 2000s and was loved by a lot of viewers for exploration of taboo topics like masturbation, sexual pleasure and women’s health but what many had their eyes on was the fashion quotient. Patricia has a role to play in that bit at least.
In an interview with The Sunday Times, stylist Patricia discussed SATC's reboot 'And Just Like That' which is airing on HBO Max. When she was asked about her former colleague Rogers' working style for the 'SATC' reboot she said, "I like some of it, I don’t like all of it, but I know what Molly’s dealing with”. She showed her sympathy for Rogers claiming it was difficult to cater to the fashion demands that are made by the cast of 'Sex in the City' series.
Explaining further, the costume designer also slammed Cynthia who plays Miranda Hobbes on 'SATC'. While viewers go gaga over Miranda's sartorial sense, the 79-year-old Oscar nominee begs to differ, “I know these gals! Sarah Jessica thinks she knows everything and she does. Cynthia 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.”
Patricia also shared her views on Kim Cattrall's absence from the series. "I hear it everywhere. Everyone is mad she won't be in it. It is a vacuum", the stylist said. Cattrall played Samantha Jones on the original series 'Sex and the City', however, she refused to be a star in the series anymore after her infamous feud with co-star Parker.
Wonder what Cynthia will have to say about Patricia's criticism.
For now, Cynthia has a lot to deal with on her plate. The reboot received a mixed response from viewers. In fact, Cynthia has been quoted as saying that one of her chief reasons for doing the reboot was to right the wrongs of its predecessor. "It’s part of the reason we wanted to do the show," Nixon said. "To go back and [undo] the things that we really got wrong," she told Elle UK in an interview this year. Acknowledging the series' problematic relationship with issues of race and transphobia, she had said, "As wonderful as [SATC] is, to do that show right now would be incredibly tone-deaf. So I was really worried that the transformation wouldn't be big enough, and my fears are very allayed."
