There are many incredibly well-dressed famous ladies out there, but none more recognisable than the Princess of Wales and of course, Sarah Jessica Parker.

In 2022, Princess Kate wore a pair of Manolo Blahnik Hangisi pumps, the very same style made famous by SJP's infamous character of Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City. The royal wore a green pair of the iconic heels in the portrait of herself and Prince William, which was unveiled at the University of Cambridge’s Fitzwilliam Museum.

But that isn't the only time Kate and Carrie have twinned. The classic style of the mother-of-three and the eclectic US actress's looks have collided a further two other times, and both ladies looked incredible.

SJP actually wore the same style years before, while supporting husband Matthew Broderick when he was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2006. She wore the dress in the opposite colourway to Kate - navy with cream piping! Love. She made the look her own with contrasting red heels.

In 2018, a pregnant Kate visited the 'Victorian Giants: The Birth of Art Photography' exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, showing off her blossoming baby bump with a stunning black dress with multicoloured flowers by Orla Kiely. She teamed her £490 dress with coordinating high heel shoes and a classic nude clutch bag to complete her look.

A month before, Sarah Jessica was snapped seen leaving Good Morning America in New York City, wearing the dress in a midi skirt form! She teamed it with a patterned top, a funky duster jacket with a pink trim and blue heels.
