Carrie Bradshaw’s Colorful Bird of Paradise Wedding Headpiece Going Up for Auction at Sotheby’s

“The iconic headpiece became one of — if not the most — memorable pieces that the beloved character ever [wore]," Sotheby's said of the memorable accessory

Those hoping to nab a one-of-a-kind piece from Carrie Bradshaw’s closet are in luck.

Sotheby’s announced it will be auctioning off several high-profile fashion items from throughout history, including the iconic vintage bird of paradise headpiece that Sarah Jessica Parker wore as Carrie in Sex and the City: The Movie and in the Sex and the City reboot And Just Like That…

Fans of the franchise will likely remember the striking accessory, which Carrie wore with her strapless Vivienne Westwood gown for her failed wedding ceremony to longtime love Mr. Big in the 2008 film.

The famous headpiece appeared again in the season 2 premiere of Max's And Just Like That… when Carrie rewore the wedding look to attend the Met Gala for its Veiled Beauty theme.

The accessory, listed as a “Vintage Taxidermied Bird of Paradise Headpiece,” features the bird’s green head with a small brown feather and several larger blue feathers. Sotheby’s said in the official description for the item that the headpiece “captivated” Parker, “who was enthralled by the vibrant colors and brazen fashion statement.”

“From the moment the world caught a glimpse of Carrie’s ensemble, the iconic headpiece became one of — if not the most — memorable pieces that the beloved character ever [wore] as it perfectly embodies the bold and empowered style of her character,” the auction house also noted.

Carrie's wedding look is one of the most unforgettable of the series, and Danny Santiago, the costume designer for And Just Like That… noted how important it was to bring back the look for the reboot.

"People fell in love with that dress,” he told Today. "It made a big impact [on fans]. Bringing it back changes the sentiment of what that dress meant. Carrie can repurpose it and replace it with the wonderful memory of wearing it to the Met ball.”

The headpiece is estimated to sell for between $40,000 and $70,000 when the auction goes live on Aug. 31.
