And just like that, Emily Ratajkowski channeled her inner Carrie Bradshaw.

The supermodel didn't miss a style beat while attending events throughout New York Fashion Week. However, her look from the Harper's Bazaar's Icons x Bloomingdale's 150th Anniversary party was swoon-worthy.

While attending the fête on Sept. 9, Emily stunned in a vintage Jean Paul Gaultier newspaper-print dress, which featured a collage of headlines and stories splashed all over.

Without a doubt, Emily's dress resembled the iconic Dior look Sarah Jessica Parker's Sex and the City character, Carrie Bradshaw, slipped into for the show's third season.

In fact, Dior's newspaper-print slip is considered one of the most famous dresses ever made. John Galliano, who served as creative director for the French label between 1996 to 2011, debuted the legendary design in February 2000.

Of course, Emily added her own personal take to the nostalgic Sex and the City look by styling the dress with a black velvet coat (which she coolly wore off the shoulder), zebra-print knee-high boots and a Fendi baguette bag—another Carrie Bradshaw wardrobe staple.

The 31-year-old's statement-making look came one day after she filed for divorce from Sebastian Bear-McClard, whom she was married to for four years.

Before filing for divorce, Emily told her TikTok followers how she was navigating life as a "recently single person" and discussed sexism in relationships.

"Under a patriarchy, there's this premise of men 'getting women,' 'getting them,' 'pulling them' like there's something to possess," she said in a Sept. 5 video. "As a recently single person who is thinking about dating and stuff, I've really seen that with my friends and with the conversations around it."

The following day, she reacted to a clip of Esther Perel talking about "the secret of female sexuality."

The psychotherapist said, "If she can think about herself, then she can be into it," to which Emily responded in her own video, "This is so true."

"And it's because women have internalized the male gaze so much that when we're having sex we're thinking about how hot or not we are," the Gone Girl actress continued. "It's kind of crazy that women are so used to seeing women sexualized and sexualizing themselves that we're thinking of being sexualized during sex for lack of a better way of putting it."


At this time, both Emily and Sebastian, who are parents to 17-month-old Sylvester Apollo Bear, have yet to publicly comment on their split.
