There have been countless rumours circulating about who will be reprising their roles in the Sex and the City reboot – and this weekend saw the latest of these with the announcement that Patricia Field, who was the costume director behind the TV show and the movies, will not be involved in the new production. However, it is not because she didn't want to be, it was purely because of a scheduling conflict.

Speaking to WWD, Field explained that there are no hard feelings around the show, and that it was purely because of timing.

"The main reason was a time conflict," she said. "I wasn’t able to be in New York doing that and be in Paris doing Emily in Paris. But I told them to call my very dear friend Molly Rogers, who also worked in my store back in the day. She did Sex and the City with me from start to finish. She knew it well so she’s doing it. My dance card was full."

In the interview, Field also addressed some of the criticism that Emily In Paris has received.

"Not really because you know the French are like that," she said of whether the first season was a bit of a cliché about France. "They don’t like anything. And I’ve known the French for many, many years. I think people have a right to say what they want to say. In the meantime from what I understand from here in Paris is that everybody is watching it. At the end of the day, that’s what counts. I don’t think Americans found it cliché at all."


Meanwhile, Sarah Jessica Parker has been teasing fans with past Sex and the City relics that they have found while working on the new series. The actress posted a picture of a chewed-up pair of Manolo Blahniks to Instagram with the caption "unearthed", referring to an episode where Carrie's boyfriend dog chews her shoes.
