The “Sex and the City” long-awaited sequel “And Just Like That” premiered on HBO MAX as a MAX Original on December 9th, 2021.

The new chapter of Sex and the City follows Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), and Charlotte (Kristin Davis) as they navigate the complicated reality of life and love in their 50s.

Yes, it’s missing Samantha (Kim Cattral). Sad face. And (spoiler alert) Mr. Big (Chris Noth) dies in the first episode on a Peloton?! WTF. So much for him and Carrie having a “happily ever after” moment. Definitely not good press for Peloton.

But alas, this article is not supposed to be sad. We are happy to report that the Diana gown from designer Norma Kamali is actually affordable, $215 to be exact.

Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Brandshaw wore the one-shoulder dress with shirred side and asymmetrical hem in Celestial Blue, but the gown is available in 23 other colors as well. According to Kamali’s website, the polyester/spandex blend dress is actually a 4-way stretch bodysuit that is built in the garment for comfort, and it also creates the drape of this style.

New York native Kamali actually first created the Diana design back in the 1970s era. TODAY reported that Kamali emailed them about the dress saying:

“The definition of timeless is something that is not affected by trends. A timeless style should look as if it is a current style (not vintage). It should look good and feel good on. SJP as Carrie looks great in the dress … which is an example of how she is aging with power, looking as beautiful as ever but in a new way!”

Since the photo of Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Brandshaw wearing the Diana gown surfaced, the dress has been flying off the shelves, so to speak that they are having supply chain issues.

Just like Carrie, Jenna wore a light-colored blazer over the pale blue dress. TODAY

Luckily, Jenna Bush Hager was able to snag one of the Diana dresses after Kamali sent one over the TODAY Show studios so Jenna could channel her inner Carrie Bradshaw. She even paired the dress with a similar jacket to recreate the look.

What do you think? Will you be buying the Diana design? And if so, in what color?
