The day Sex and the City fans have been waiting for has finally arrived with the launch of the highly-anticipated new series And Just Like That hitting screens. And, last night saw Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte reunite on the red carpet for the first time in years, as they celebrated the premiere in New York City.

Actresses Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis all posed together on the red carpet dressed up in ensembles that definitely felt inspired by what their characters would wear on the show.

Parker channelled her inner Carrie Bradshaw in an Oscar de la Renta tulle gown worn with a matching cape, which she teamed with pointed pink court shoes.

Nixon wore a neon orange design by Christopher John Rogers with a pointed collar, which we could definitely see Miranda wearing, while Davis opted for a timeless off-the-shoulder Jason Wu dress that would not look out of place in Charlotte’s Upper East Side wardrobe.

Other characters from the original series who are returning for the update also walked the red carpet, including Chris Noth (Carrie's complicated love interest Mr. Big), Evan Handler (Charlotte's husband Harry Goldenblatt), Mario Cantone (who plays Anthony Marentino) and David Eigenberg (Miranda's bar-owner husband Steve Brady).

One cast member sadly missing from the launch was of course Willie Garson, who was known for playing Carrie's best male friend Stanford Blatch, and tragically died aged 57 following a short illness in September this year. The star, who became an important gay icon for men and women around the world, was working on the new spin-off show and was last pictured on set filming scenes alongside Sarah Jessica Parker and the rest of the cast in Manhattan in July.

HBO Max's 10-episode series, And Just Like That, follows three of the four main characters from the original show as they "navigate the reality of life and friendship in their 50s".

Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones on the show, will not be returning as the sex-positive PR executive character. The script will incorporate her absence as part of the storyline to show how friendships can change over time.

"They're not trying to re-do Sex and the City. They're not trying to say that these characters are reliving their 30s," HBO's chief content officer Casey Bloys told ET Canada. "It is very much a story about women in their 50s, and they are dealing with things that people deal with in their 50s."

Sex and the City emerged in 1998 and remains one of the most iconic TV series in history, leaving an indelible mark on modern popular culture, our wardrobes and defining an era of smart and successful 30-something women talking frankly about sex and relationships.

You can watch 'And Just Like That' from today on Sky Atlantic or Now TV in UK.
