If you've already devoured both episodes of And Just Like That, then you need not worry about any spoilers. If, however, you're saving it for the weekend or any other time, look away now. For not only am I about to talk openly about events in the show, I'll be discussing one of the biggest spoilers there is. And yes, it has something to do with those Manolos.
Considering the amount of money Carrie Bradshaw spent on Manolo Blahnik shoes during the six seasons of Sex and the City, it seemed fitting that Mr. Big would end up essentially proposing to her with a pair of blue satin Hangisi heels at the end of the first movie. But who ever expected them to become a signifier of such momentous emotional moments?
There's a moment in the first episode of _And Just Like That___ where we see Carrie in her enormous wardrobe for the first time. She looks at those blue Manolos ('hello, lovers') before putting them on and making a show of the fact that she's wearing them to Mr. Big. He acknowledges that they are her 'wedding shoes' and she clicks them together like Dorothy trying to make her way home.
There's a lot of foreshadowing going on here because, as Carrie returns home from Lily's piano recital, she finds her husband slumped on the floor of the bathroom, apparently in the midst of a heart attack.
As Carrie runs to him and takes him in her arms, there's a very poignant shot of the Hangisi shoes falling into the running shower. Of course, you don't need to boast a shoe collection the size of Carrie's to know that getting silk-satin soaking wet does not bode well.
So I suppose the important questions everyone's asking is: will Carrie buy a new pair? And just when is Aidan going to make an appearance?
Carrie wears a crossbody sequinned Paco Rabanne to dress up her floral maxi.

Sporting beloved Fendi bag, this time in Nano size.

A surprising outfit for girly-girl Charlotte!

Batsheva's pink-and-white housedress is a lot nicer than what we wear to do the washing up.

Lisa is earning a reputation as the group's boldest dresser, pairing this puff-sleeved fuchsia jacket with some sunflower shorts.

Carrie's tutu is back in business. OK, it's not the same pink style she wore in the original show's opening credits, but this long swooshing number is still fetching.

Charlotte looks sunny side up, despite the grey skies, in this egg yolk yellow skirt and matching pumps.

Seema Patel, played by Sarita Choudhury, appeared for the first time on set wearing this criss-cross jumpsuit from Ralph Lauren.

After that socks and sandals episode, Carrie is back on form with a fabulous blue-and-orange dress, a modern-day boater and towering platform sandals.

Is that socks and sandals we see on Carrie?! It looks like she's in a hospital waiting room, which perhaps explains the choice of footwear, but it's still a first from our stiletto-loving heroine.

Miranda paired her lime green jacket with similarly zesty, wooden-soled sandals.

Charlotte does modern power dressing in this nipped-waist tweed dress in powder pink.

The last time she wore a 'bird' on her head, Carrie was marrying Mr Big (/hitting him with a bouquet of roses when he left her at the altar). Now that things have come full circle, if rumours are to be believed, perhaps she's setting the mood for whatever meeting this is? (The polka dot skirt is Carolina Herrera; the hand-painted bag is by artist Rebecca Moses.)

Carrie embraces a flowing maxi dress (an usually bohemian choice it must be said) in one of her latest on-set outfits.

Spotted filming with SJP, which must mean their characters are headed for some sort of confrontation/reconciliation, Bridget Moynahan was styled in a polished shirt dress from luxury sustainable label Gabriela Hearst.

For a scene filmed outside the Lyceum Theatre, Kristin Davis looked exceptionally 'Charlotte', wearing a flower-embroidered cocktail dress from Lela Rose, a powder blue handbag from Louis Vuitton, and a watch from Cartier.

The excitement caused over seeing a grown-up Brady Hobbes (!) was almost enough to distract us from the brilliance of this tie-dyed silk duo from Gerard Darel.

In the best revival yet, SJP was spotted wearing those peacock blue pumps – Manolo Blahnik's Hangisi – that she last wore for her low-key wedding to Mr Big.

As well as digging out her beloved Fendi Baguette, SJP's also resurrected this studded belt from Streets Ahead. As eagle-eyed fans will remember, the eye-catching accessory made its debut in the first movie, cinching the waist of the rose-printed dress that she wears to go apartment-hunting.

For a cafe catch-up, Charlotte ventures into the world of print with a white sundress patterned with blue sailboats.

This is the second pair of wedge sandals spotted on Miranda – proof, if you needed it, that they've come a long way since being the type of shoe your old headmistress would wear in summer.

Charlotte's Chanel handbag, the brand's 19 Tweed Wallet, is as classic as they come.

Miranda's berry red jumpsuit scores a perfect 10 in our book and is from homegrown label Likely NYC.

Saint Laurent's Farrah platforms prove that our heroine hasn't lost her love of heels (or serious height).

Lisa Todd Wexley, played by Empire's Nicole Ari Parker, is a new character and, by the looks of things, is going to be the show's new ambassador for power necklaces.

Charlotte was seen in princess pink dialled to its punchiest max in this blouse, a $154 number from Gosilk.

Returning to form with bold-and-bright signatures, Miranda took to the streets wearing an easy-breezy striped dress from Dries Van Noten.

Carrie was always game for a fancy hat – her fascinator once caused a fight between her Berger, remember? – and this jaunty straw style is no exception.

Charlotte was always the girliest of the foursome (now threesome) with a wardrobe full of hairbands, pearls and pastel dresses, but this pleated polka dot skirt is from Balenciaga, high fashion's most directional label. Paired with a puff-sleeved blouse, sunflower yellow pumps and a handbag from Rianna + Nina, it's avant garde meets the Upper East Side.

As a corporate lawyer, Miranda always aced modern power dressing. A few decades on, things haven't haven't changed. Clearly, the costume department knows their way around a wide-legged trouser. Am I right?

We shudder at the thought of the costume department's shoe wardrobe (it must be similar to when our heroine found herself let loose in the cupboard at Vogue), and love these patent and super stacked Mary-Janes.

Spotted here in blush pink outerwear, woven white mules and – gasp! – a tote bag not from a designer but from WNYC, New York's version of Radio 4. Could this be a character clue?
