And by “this week,” I obviously mean “two weeks ago.”
Ok, friends and enemies!! Let’s get this over with, for the sake of completion and all that jazz.
Let’s talk about this wig. We didn’t talk about it last time and I have nothing to say about Carrie’s puffy black jacket. But the wig…. Carrie has worn a lot of questionable wigs over the years. I mean, actually they’ve all been terrible. I think at least 50% of the reason I haven’t rewatched season five since it aired is because of the godawful wig. I’m nearly shuddering thinking about it.
But!!! This wig… it’s not horrible. I think it’s some combination of the length and the wave and the fact that Claire Danes does look pretty good with brunette hair. Remember when she dyed her hair in October 2013 before they went to Morocco but before we knew they were going to Morocco and we were like “what is going on there, lady???!!!” That may have just been me.
(Also, I just realized that the season started and ended with Carrie in a similar-ish brown wig. And now I’ve hit my ~analysis~ quota for this post.)
Fake!Carrie has a nice bag and also looks like a YouTube star that I unfollowed on Instagram a few weeks ago (except with darker hair). Isn’t this fun???
Carrie looks good in a teal, what can I say.
That’s the most vivid color she’s worn all year when she’s not been pretending to be another person.
There is no possible universe in which the costume department has not been reading all these posts this season about Carrie’s OVERSIZED PLAID SHIRT and was not like, “you want OVERSIZED? I’ll GIVE YOU OVERSIZED! I’ll give you SUPERSIZED!” Because this coat is so comically large I can accept no other explanation. Carrie may never get a gigantor helmet but she does get a coat.
And this is a big fat nopity nope noperson.
IN CONCLUSION: OVERSIZED. TEAL. CARRIE NEEDS A HUG.
