Kim Cattrall’s Best Red Carpet Looks Prove She’ll Always Be a Samantha


Looking through Kim Cattrall’s red carpet looks over the past few decades, it seems obvious that Samantha Jones has inspired the actress’ style aesthetic. Or was it the other way around? Either way, it’s hard to look at some of the power suits and low-cut dresses Cattrall has worn over the years without thinking, “This is then Samantha. While the actress usually sticks to a smart blazer and pants these days, Cattrall had her fair share of glitzy looks back in the day, especially while promoting her hit HBO show. And even now, she likes to add some attitude to her more watered-down looks (see the pink Barbie jacket she wore to the Queer as Folk premiere earlier this year). Take a look at some of her best moments on the red carpet, from her pre-sex and the city days to now.
