You hear the familiar tune of “Groove Armada.” You see Carrie strutting around in her quintessential tank and tutu skirt. You see that oh-so-recognizable New York City skyline. We can’t help but wonder — could it be any other show but Sex and the City?! This 1997 book-turned American romantic comedy-drama television series has been a hallmark of entertainment since 1998, and lucky for us, the Sex and the City reboot, titled And Just Like That, is upon us! Soon we’ll be able to reunite with our favorite characters, while also meeting some new ones (though Samantha won’t be returning to the next chapter).
How to Get the Style of Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha in Photos
The characters of this binge-worthy show are no doubt the reason we keep coming back. What fabulous outfit will Carrie show up in this week? What beautiful floral arrangement will Charlotte create? Which boardroom will Miranda slay? Which man is Samantha’s current favorite? We all have a favorite, and we’ve likely tried to channel their style for ourselves at one point or another.
Lucky for us, the YouCam Perfect app just made that a lot easier! In this article, we’ll recommend the best animated effects and stickers from the YouCam Perfect app based on what character you think you might be — Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda, or Samantha. Now let’s celebrate the return of this cult TV show!
Which ‘Sex and the City’ Character Are You?
We can’t choose our animated effects and stickers without knowing which character we most identify with, so let’s go over a quick refresher of each character’s most important personality traits.
- Let’s begin with the main character — Carrie Bradshaw. Carrie is best known for being a writer, she loves fashion, she’s creative, and she loves to experiment with her looks while also being open-minded and oh-so positive.
- Next up is Charlotte York. Charlotte is traditional and elegant, honest, polite yet innocent, and she dreams of a fairytale kind of love.
- Moving on to the boss lady character, it’s Miranda Hobbes! Miranda is ambitious, minimalist, direct, and independent, and she always speaks her mind.
- Last but certainly not least is the fan-favorite Samantha Jones. Samantha is honest, tough, confident, outspoken, playful, and flamboyant and is known for having “no filter.”
1. If You’re Carrie
Each episode is structured around Carrie’s weekly column called “Sex and the City,” and oftentimes it includes mentions of her love life in stunning New York City, also referred to as the “Fifth Character.” Carrie’s chronicles of love are extensive, including the Mr. Big chapter, the Aidan chapter, and many other short-lived characters. For this reason, love-related animations are the best way to channel your inner Carrie in your photos. >> Click to Download FREE YouCam Perfect App & Try!
2. If You’re Charlotte
Charlotte is known for many things on the show, but the heart of her character is her career working in art galleries. Her infatuation for art and design spills over into almost every aspect of her life, so for those who identify with Charlotte, the Art category of the YouCam Perfect app is definitely where you’ll want to set up shop. Experiment with angelic stickers and effects to really get that beautiful, darling vibe that Charlotte is so well known for. >> Click to Download FREE YouCam Perfect App & Try!
3. If You’re Miranda
Many of us wish we could be Miranda with her straight-to-the-point and no-nonsense lifestyle. A great way to convey this in your photo edits is by adding a Grid effect, or even just a black-and-white filter to convey her minimalist and direct point of view. >> Click to Download FREE YouCam Perfect App & Try!
4. If You’re Samantha
No argument here, the most swanky and ostentatious one of the group is Samantha. She’s always glam and outspoken while being a little too much but in the best of ways. For that reason, you’ll want to go over the top with effects if you’re hoping to channel your inner-Samantha with photo edits! Look to sparkle or rose effects — we know that Samantha is always the star.
Another good choice would be a crown sticker or a rose sticker to convey her inner and outer beauty. If Samantha is your Sex and the City spirit animal, don’t be afraid to be a little extra — that’s what makes this character so fun to watch. >> Click to Download FREE YouCam Perfect App & Try!
