10 Years Later: Sex and the City Lessons That Are Still So True

Originally posted 02/21/2014 03:00PM

It's been 10 years since the series finale of Sex and the City aired Feb. 22, 2004, which was many, many cosmopolitans ago.

We've since filled the void with shows like Girls, hair accessories that aren't scrunchies and the aforementioned cocktails (not to mention two follow-up films). But we'll never forget the HBO rom-sitcom, which followed the ultimate N.Y.C. core-four – Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall), Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) and Charlotte York (Kristin Davis) – through a dizzying world of guys, 6-inch heels and perfectly phrased one-liners.

It's been a decade since Sex and the City ended its cosmo-fueled six-season run on Feb. 22, 2004. And while we loved watching the fabulous foursome discover the tech trends and dessert crazes of the late '90s and early aughts, we couldn't help but wonder how the HBO series would look if it aired today.

When it comes to playing an iconic TV character, there probably aren't any sexier shoes to fill than those of Sex and the City's Samantha Jones.

That's why when Lindsey Gort got the call that she'd be playing young Samantha on season two of the CW's The Carrie Diaries, she lost it.

Despite being a dead ringer for Kim Cattrall's promiscuous character, Gort, 29, says in real life, she's not nearly as risqué. Here are five things to know about the sexy new star.

Carrie Bradshaw, 16, Will Have Her Own Identity on The Carrie Diaries

Originally posted 10/24/2012 04:30PM

Creators of the CW's upcoming Sex and the City prequel, The Carrie Diaries, say fans should not expect a miniaturized version of iconic HBO show.

"We didn't want to do the Baby Muppets syndrome – 'Oh it's baby Samantha! It's baby Miranda!' " executive producer Amy B. Harris told SATC fans during a screening of the premiere episode on Monday at New York City's School of Visual Arts.

Instead, Harris and creator Candace Bushnell, who was also on hand for the premiere, hope to give 1984's Carrie Bradshaw – played by AnnaSophia Robb – her own identity and a new set of friends, reports Huffington Post.

Sarah Jessica Parker and True Blood's Alfre Woodard stepped out in Cincinnati on Saturday to campaign for President Barack Obama – but Parker managed to squeeze in a little shopping, too.

The actresses – who were encouraging women to vote in the upcoming election – stopped into Sloane Boutique in Over-the-Rhine, Ohio.

"Sarah was so nice and so pleasant to be around," the boutique's owner tells PEOPLE. "Very humble and very down-to-earth."

The I Don't Know How She Does It actress tried on Veda leather jackets and bought some bracelets for her twin daughters, Loretta and Tabitha.

"She told me she couldn't wait to come back and shop again," the boutique owner added.

Girls Star Lena Dunham Dishes on Sex and the City Comparisons

Originally posted 04/15/2012 11:35AM

It's drawn early comparisons to another HBO show – Sex and the City – but the major thing Lena Dunham's dark comedy, Girls, has in common with the show is, well, the sex.

For this group of young New York women, it's all about uncomfortable sexual positions, "like legs behind the head kind of action," Dunham, who wrote, directed and stars in the series, told PEOPLE at its premiere at the School of Visual Arts Theatre.

Joked Dunham, 25: "I was sore the next day in a different place than you're usually sore after sex."
