Carrie Diaries Fashion: Get the Looks From ‘Read Before Use’

The word “vagina” was uttered 12 times (I counted!) in last night’s episode of The Carrie Diaries (Season 1, Episode 3 “Read Before Use“), and yet, there was no sign of Samantha Jones in vicinity.

I half expected her to pop up at New York City’s The Franklin Furnace where in ex-adult film star Monica Penny (Adriana DeMeo) proposed she was going to “take back the vagina.” This is the exact kind of gathering I see a teenaged Samantha getting inspiration from — for her future career and her future libido.

Even when Larissa (Freema Agyeman) tried to explain the “art exhibit” to Carrie Bradshaw (AnnaSophia Robb), I could hear Samantha’s sexpert voice. “No, she’s not selling her vagina, she’s owning it,” Larissa said.

Carrie took this as a metaphor for her life and decided to own her own rosebud/box/who-ha/pink panther by… wait a minute, since when was a women’s part called a “pink panther”? Is this a 1980s thing I wasn’t aware of? Must be!
