就这样…… costume designer Molly Rogers shared a special behind-the-scenes look at one of the suits Stanford Blatch would have worn in episode 5 的 欲望都市 revival if storylines weren’t shifted due to actor Willie Garson’s death while the series was filming.
“Dear @willie.garson : this look was supposed to be in the bread van scene to ‘bookend’ @iamkristindavis ‘s outfit eps 105 #costumediary #youaremissed ? @thredup #thriftforwillie ? ??,” Rogers captioned a photo of the geometric patterned suit selected for Stanford in a scene with Charlotte York-Goldenblatt (played by Kristin Davis) in episode 5 的 And Just Like That.... which aired last week.
Garson, who starred as Carrie Bradshaw’s best friend on the original series, 死了 in Sept. 2021 年龄 57 从 pancreatic cancer. Prior to his death, the actor had already filmed scenes for the revival. 然而, 就像那样… showrunner Michael Patrick King didn’t want Stanford to die in the HBO Max series.
“Because it wasn’t charming,” King told the 纽约时报 of choosing to not write Garson’s death into the show. “And I knew that the audience would know.”
Stanford’s departure from the show was written in episode 4, when Carrie discovers a letter from her friend announcing his move to Japan with a TikTok star he manages.
什么时候 就像那样… costume designers Rogers and 丹尼圣地亚哥 curated looks for the reboot, they pulled pieces from designers, 这 节目存档 and even the online consignment and thrift shop 线程. To celebrate the series, the styling duo teamed up with the company on a curated 在线 thredUP 店面, with all proceeds honoring Garson.
“这对我们所有人来说意义重大, 因为我们没有 [威利] 对于太多的剧集，这是一个点头的好方法 [给他] 或者一点感激,” Rogers told PEOPLE of the partnership, that gives 100% of proceeds to 威利加森基金, which connects children in foster care to a loving family.
Rogers added: “当 thredUP 联系到此合作伙伴关系时, 为了我, 这是一个完美的时机，因为威利在我们的脑海里，只是为了能够有机地做一些人们喜欢的事情, 这是节俭的, 当你节俭时，你对自己感觉很好，因为你是一个回收者，你是绿色的，它只是有点分层，非常合适。”
