The women behind the popular Sex and The City Instagram account @everyoutfitonsatc has published a book in praise of their favorite character from the vintage HBO series.
Chelsea Fairless and Lauren Garroni announced the release of We Should All Be Mirandas: Life Lessons from Sex and the City’s Most Underrated Character Tuesday via Instagram to its 580,000 followers. The post quickly garnered over 22,000 likes.
As self-proclaimed “Mirandas,” the authors took the TV version of Candace Bushnell‘s character from the 1996 novel of the same name. Miranda Hobbes, played by former New York gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon, is a tough-minded lawyer who loves sarcasm. But with her short red hair and lankiness in bland business suits, she didn’t become as beloved as the other three characters who came to be known as fashionable single-girl-in-the-city archetypes, including main character Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker, who’s also a book imprint owner), Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall), and Charlotte York (Kristin Davis).
This parody book is dedicated 20+ years later to a character from a novel who was brought to life on screen to make an argument on why this character’s so-called awkward femininity should be accepted and admired.
Available for pre-order on Amazon.com, the book will be released in October.
