With the good, the bad and the ugly, ‘Look of the week’ is a regular series dedicated to unboxing the most talked about outfit in the last seven days.
On Wednesday, paparazzi snaps of Sarah Jessica Parker and Kristin Davis filming scenes from the second season of the HBO Max series “And Just Like That…” ricocheted across the internet. (HBO Max is owned by CNN parent company Warner Bros. Discovery.)
While some drew comparisons to the “pigeon man” from the ’90s “Hey Arnold” children’s cartoon, most – including fashion industry insiders – cooed over the bird bag of the actor. “SJP wearing the JW pigeon clutch makes me happy lol,” one Twitter user wrote. “Starting the season with the pigeon is already iconic,” added another fan on Instagram.

And for longtime fans of the “Sex and the City” franchise, the handbag is further proof of Carrie Bradshaw’s reputation as a dopamine dresser: prioritizing clothes that spark joy — at both for the Internet and for itself. While some fear amassing too many sartorial benchmarks, seeking instead “timeless” pieces that promise never to date, Bradshaw has always embodied an eclectic and flawed sense of style.
There’s a long line of handbags, hats and other accessories worn by the fictional columnist over the years – a handbag inspired by a horse’s head (“Sex and the City” season four, episode one ) a crystal-encrusted Judith Leiber Swan handbag (“Sex and the City” season two, episode ten), a Timmy Woods Eiffel Tower bag (“Sex and the City”, 2008) and – continuing the avian theme – the blue bird of paradise fascinator she wore to her wedding a few scenes later in the film.

These bizarre accessories sit at the intersection of fashion and memes. By showcasing the infamous pigeon purse, Rogers and Santiago crafted an Easter egg moment destined for virality on screen and beyond. And just like that… A moment of internet culture was born.
