Be it countless Manolo Blahniks, full-length fur coats or form-fitting mini dresses; the ever-evolving, daring style of the show is what made the show's costume designer Patricia Field just as famous as the books author, Candace Bushnell. And who better to showcase those brilliant looks, than the ever stylish on and off screen Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw.
