Sarah Jessica Parker Just Wore the Dress Trend That Will Dominate Summer 2023

In case you missed it, there's been a lot of Sex and the City news lately. First, there was the surprising revelation that Kim Cattrall will appear in the season two finale of the spinoff show And Just Like That. The actress was noticeably absent from the first season, so this is welcome news for Samantha fans. Secondly, Sex and the City celebrated its 25th anniversary on June 6, commemorating the day it first aired on HBO.

That brings us to today: Sarah Jessica Parker was photographed promoting a new Sex and the City pop-up experience, which runs until June 11 in New York City. For the event, she wore a Gabriela Hearst Lani Puff-Sleeve Dress ($2312), which hits on the maxi dress trend expected to be huge this summer. Other celebrity fans of the maxi trend include Sofia Richie, Kaia Gerber, and Jennifer Lopez. Plus, as we previously reported, we saw lots of maxis on the F/W 23 runways at Bottega Veneta, Prada, Emilia Wickstead, and others.

Next, I just got back from Mallorca—here's the outfit formula I wore every day

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
