Why are we taking a moment to feature the ensemble Kristin Davis wore in the latest episode of And Just Like That…, when her character Charlotte returned to the work force after two decades? Well, content’s content, darlings. But also because Lorenzo won’t shut up about it. The fashion is sometimes a little iffy on this show, but it feels like it’s improving in small increments as Costume Designer Molly Rogers settles into the characters a bit more along with her co-designer Danny Santiago. Anyway, this:
Is really good work. It’s super-twee in that way that latter-day Charlotte prefers but it’s also very clearly expensive. Perhaps it’s because we’ve been so costume-oriented lately and wrote an obsessive piece about the use of pink in movie costumes, but this really jumped out at us. We’ve said this before, but any time a costume has story or character points literally written into it, and if there’s some depiction of the buying or trying on of the costume, you can view it as an important and well-considered choice by the costume designer. Kristin Davis has been doing pretty great work all throughout this season, but we loved how well she depicted the perhaps shallow but nonetheless very real desire to hold on to the person you were physically decades before. Personally, if Charlotte had asked us, we’d have told her to ditch the belt and get the version of the dress with the white accents.
