You don’t need to just dream anymore about slipping into the Vivienne Westwood wedding dress that Sarah Jessica Parker made famous in the Sex and the City movie — at least not if you’re lucky enough to have an extra fifteen thousand dollars lying around. The design has just become available for purchase at Hayden Olivia Bridal in Charlotte, N.C., which has been chosen as one of only three U.S. boutiques — and ten shops worldwide — to carry the wedding dress. And while the price-tag might seem weighty, it does include optional fittings in London with designers from the Vivienne Westwood team. Click here to watch video of the dress at and learn how you can schedule an appointment to make SJP’s dress your own. Tell us: Would you want to wear Carrie’s dress for your wedding?

there’s also a shortened version available on– i think it retailed for $10k.

I love the bottom, but hate the bust. Unless the bust changed, I definitely would not wear it.

Eliza on

Definitely would NOT wear it

That is the ugliest dress that I have ever seen. SJP has always been called a fashionista, but I never saw it. A tutu and a tank top are not pretty or stylish. She wears strange clothes and that dress is all her. Have you seen her camel toe boots? Very ugly.

That has to be the ugliest gown ever made, other than the monstrosity Princess Diana wore. I never watched the show while it was on tv. But curiosity got the best of me & I watched the movie the other night. ZZzzzzzzzzzzzz.. Most boring bunch of **** I’ve ever seen. Will miss the second one !!

Totally looks like my down comforter

That wrinkled mess, looks like a cupcake on the bottom and butterfly wings on top. She modeled several really pretty gowns in the movie for the photo session, why this one was chosen, which doesn’t even fit her nicely when the others did is way beyond my figuring out. I still don’t understand why any bride likes a gown with those poufs all around the skirt, makes you look a mess, and when a woman over 30 wears one it makes her look so childish instead of beautiful and like a woman. Hated it and all gowns styled in that manner

yeah, the dress is not my style at all. besides, considering that Carrie’s wedding was basically a disaster, i’m not sure i’d want to wear it even if i did like it. not that i think it would jinx me, it would just have bad connotations!

That is hideous mess of a dress. The mishapen bust, wrinkles…totally ugly!!! If I made that in HomeEc sewing class I would have been failed. All the other dresses SJP wore in the movie were better than this disaster. That dumbass dead pidgeon on her head helps to distract a little, but not enough. I like SJP as an actress and human being. This is a glamour don’t!

Mel on

That is a FUGLY!!! dress. So designs are just meant for movies and runways. This is one of those.I would not wear that even if I was paid too

Cate on

This dress…. is terrible.

It looks like a bunch of down comforters sewn together. And the bodice is pretty bad too. It looks like what Tilda Swinton wore when she was the White Witch in the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.

i loooooove SATC but sorry this dress is ugly! i dont care of SJP is wearing it but it’s damn ugly! she wore one dress in the movie during her wedding dress fitting scene that looks way better then this one!

Nice Dress! does not detract from the face shaped like a horse!

Lisa on

Ugh! I’ve never understood the bust design — it was falling off of SJP in the movie.

Another example of someone confusing STRANGE with INTERESTING.

Carmela on

I thought this dress was a joke at first. I didn’t see the movie, but I heard the character wore it for her wedding. This is butt ugly. SJP is over rated too.

AI fan on

i like it all….SJP, SATC & the dress!! it’s cool & funky and i’d like to wear a dress like that….especially if it were free! lol
SJP picked that dress specifically because it was different!! Carrie doesn’t need to do beautiful, or traditional, Carrie can and does, do whatever she wants! That’s the point.

eeew! hate it!

elisabeth on

Horrible dress. Never would wear it.

Mary on

I think Charlotte’s Badgley Mischka dress from her second wedding was the best wedding dress in the entire series. I would wear THAT, not this unfortunate-looking dress on SJP.
