"Sex and the City" is 15 years old: 15 Life Lessons

sarah_jessica_parker_beautiful_city_desktop_1024x768_free-wallpaper-3937815 years ago,  Carrie Bradshaw, aka Sarah Jessica Parker, began offering advice on sex, love and life. To celebrate, The Daily Beast curated the best ‘Sex and the City’ advice on getting old.

Writer Kevin Fallon observes, “If a baby was born the day Sex and the City premiered, she would be just old enough now to rock her first pair of Manolos. That’s because June 6 marks the 15th anniversary of the premiere of Sex and the City. As the series transitions to its teenage years, it’s as culturally relevant as ever, with episodes rerunning almost constantly on cable, speculation about a third film always circulating, and fans quoting Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda daily—that is, when they’re not debating which of the four friends they are most like.”

In honor of the show’s big birthday, here are 15 tips on aging gracefully, straight from the foursome themselves – with video evidence, of course! Read them.

  1. Carrie Bradshaw is my idol. I love her with every bit of my womanly being. This series was revolutionary. I wish I had HBO when it aired because I know I’d be glued to the damn thing every week… I don’t think the CW’s spinoff The Carrie Diaries does it quite the right amount of justice, but it’s cutesy and worth it I guess for the younger kids.

  2. I love Sex and the City, and I don’t think any show has impacted pop culture as much as this one. I hate that people say that Girls is the new SATC. It isn’t… not even close. Everyone compares themselves to Miranda, Charlotte, Carrie and Samantha. I’m a Carrie bye the way.
