Iconic “Sex and the City” Tutu Hits Auction Block

Fashion enthusiasts and “Sex and the City” aficionados have a chance to own a piece of television history as the iconic pink tutu worn by Carrie Bradshaw in the show’s opening credits is now up for auction at Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills.

The famous tutu, a symbol of the show’s groundbreaking fashion, was originally discovered in a $5 bin in New York City’s garment district by legendary costume designer Patricia Field. Julien’s Auctions co-founder and executive director Martin Nolan highlighted the uniqueness of the skirt, noting that it “broke all the fashion rules by mixing street wear and high fashion.” The tutu became a trendsetter, influencing generations of fashionistas and leaving a lasting impact on mass-market fashion trends.

The tutu, worn by Sarah Jessica Parker’s character Carrie Bradshaw, replaced the original outfit idea of a spring 1998 Marc Jacobs runway dress. Field’s decision to opt for a timeless piece ensured that the opening credits wouldn’t reveal the age of the show when filmed. The three-tiered tulle tutu became a signature style element for Bradshaw and a symbol of the show’s influence on fashion.

The auction, titled “UNSTOPPABLE: SIGNATURE STYLES OF ICONIC WOMEN IN FASHION,” includes other high-profile fashion looks, such as dresses worn by Princess Diana, Grace Kelly, and Cher. The month-long online-only auction commenced on December 11 and is set to close on January 11, 2024.

The estimated sale price for the Carrie Bradshaw tutu ranges from $8,000 to $12,000. As fans and collectors alike eagerly participate in the auction, the iconic piece serves as a tangible connection to the cultural impact of “Sex and the City” and its enduring influence on fashion.
