Американец завоевал симпатии пользователей Сети подражанием героине популярного сериала "Секс в большом городе".
В прошлом году 33-летний американец Дэн Клей решил отпраздновать Хэллоуин в образе героини Сары Джессики Паркер. В итоге, образ Кэрри Брэдшоу создал такой ажиотаж в Интернете, что мужчина решил не останавливаться и продолжить эксперимент с переодеванием, пишет Cosmopolitan. Необычные и забавные снимки Дэн размещает в Instagram.
Простор для фантазии у Клея довольно широкий. За шесть сезонов сериала и два полнометражных фильма Кэрри предстала перед камерами в огромном количестве нарядов. Часто Дэн добавляет себя "в кадр" какой-либо серии при помощи ретуши.
Сегодня за Дэном следят порядка 70 тысяч человек. Он стал настолько популярным, что сама Сара Джессика Паркер оценила его старания. Фото попало к актрисе, когда самый первый образ набрал тысячи лайков.
- О боже! У меня нет слов. Это триумф!, - не сдержала восторга звезда.
Дэн меняет макияж, прическу, одежду. Он копирует позы Кэрри и даже ее мимику. Более того, американцу удается найти места, в которых была киногероиня.
They say the truth hurts. But they also say it will set you free. As I strolled down a sunny downtown sidewalk, I couldn't help but wonder: What is the truth about truth? Is it painful or liberating? Does it hurt or heal? The truth is, a lot of tears have been shed over truth. Because some truths really do hurt: He’s just not that into you. You can’t afford more Manolos. You’re not a sample size. You’re different from the other boys. But deep inside every painful truth is an empowering one: You're stronger than you thought you were. So yes, the truth can be scary. But only if you're too scared to embrace it. Maybe our fears and insecurities are like a parasol: we carry them around and they block our light. And maybe life's more radiant if we drop the parasol of self-doubt and let our truth flags fly free. I had a thought: New York is full of beautiful sights, from the Brooklyn Bridge to the Barney’s Warehouse Sale. But the most beautiful sight isn’t on any tourist map. The most beautiful sight in all of New York City—more beautiful than the Empire State Building or Central Park in the spring—is the sight of the people strong enough to live their truth. So maybe the answer is both: The truth can hurt, but it can also look great in a sun dress. #CarrieDragshaw ☀️ Inspired by all the radiant souls at RuPaul's DragCon.
Carrie's L.A. Odyssey (Day 5 of 7) 🌴 As I basked in the rays of the City of Angels, I had a thought. Life isn't Los Angeles: it won't be sunny every day. And love is as fickle as the weather in New York. But maybe happiness is less about changing your life and more about changing how you look at it. It's less about changing your city, your weight, your boyfriend, or even your self—and more about changing your perspective. To see the pool float as half full. To stop comparing yourself to where you should be and start celebrating yourself for where you are. After all, the air in L.A. has smog and the air in N.Y. smells like pee, but you can still stop and smell the roses. Maybe life is like a Brazilian Wax: You're in for a lot of pain if you expect everything to be smooth. But if you can greet life's imperfections & hairy challenges with a smile, the forecast looks bright. The storms won't hurt you if there's sunshine in your soul. The nightmares won't scare you if there are dreams in your heart. And you'll never be alone if you become the love you’re looking for.... TO BE CONTINUED #CarrieDragshaw 👙 See you Monday for the final "episodes" of our L.A. Journey. You've made this week so so fun for me. Thank you x a trillion!!
They say your dress should be tight enough to show you’re a woman and loose enough to show you’re a lady. But sometimes it needs to be sexy enough to show you’ve got balls. Because in a city as loud as New York, sometimes your clothes need to do the talking for you. So I picked a dress that said, “I’m more important than your phone” and, “If you don’t treat me right, someone else will.” But did I really believe what my dress was saying? Or was I relying on an outfit to make me feel the way I wished Big would? Maybe love really is like a dove: beautiful and peaceful, until it shits all over you. I couldn’t help but wonder: How much in life do we really control? You can’t pick your family, you can’t change a man, and you can’t force love. But you can pick your outfit. And every day, no matter what’s going on in the world, you decide what to wear. So that night I decided to wear confidence, leave self-doubt and needy dependence in the closet, and accessorize with sexy. Because a freakum dress can’t change the world. But the girl inside it can. #CarrieDragshaw
Meanwhile back in Manhattan, I was heading to a midtown brunch to debut a midriff top. As I waited to be picked up, I started thinking: On the road to love, some of us are stuck on the sidewalk. Single. But that doesn't have to be sad. When life gives you “meh,” make a-meh-zing. When life gives you crap plaid, make a crop top. And when life gives you "single," make it sensational. I couldn't help but wonder: Is being single the new summer vacation? Hot, steamy, fun and free from responsibility? And in the age of 10,000 Netflix options and a ZipCar on every corner, could singledom—with all its choice, freedom and flexibility—be the ultimate status symbol? After all...Not all Dorothies are lost. Who needs a Tin Man when you have Tom Ford and the Wizard of Ozcar de la Renta? Some Dorothies are just happy explorers in sparkly slippers, skipping from brick to brick with courage, heart and brains. Single by fate. Sexy by nature. Smiling by choice. #CarrieDragshaw
Today is my actual birthday! And unlike Carrie on her 35th, I have never in my entire life felt less alone. Your kind messages make every day feel like a birthday and there's not a Thank You big enough to express how much it all means to me. So thank you thank you thank you. Now here's Carrie. 🎂 It can be scary to be alone with your thoughts. Table for one, Fettuccine Afraid-o. Dessert? No Sor-bae, just Tirami-so-lonely. As I sat dejected at my empty birthday party, I started thinking about thinking. Why was the voice inside our head so often negative? We beat ourselves up over imperfections, focus too much on our flaws, compare & despair with the ones who are already married, always skinny, also rich, or almost perfect. I couldn't help but wonder: Did I need to break up with the voice inside my head? If my inner monologue were a pasta at Il Cantinori, would I send it back for being cold and salty? That birthday I didn't make a wish, I made a promise: to love myself more. To make my inner voice less like an emotionally abusive boyfriend and more like a totally supportive best friend, or an optimistic grandma: building you up, encouraging you to try new things, reminding you how pretty you are without makeup and telling you to have that second slice of cake. Because life's your party and you can cry if you want to... but you can smile if you try to. So maybe alone isn't such a bad way to spend your birthday. After all, the most exciting, challenging, significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find a way to love yourself more—well that's the greatest birthday gift of all. #CarrieDragshaw
They say life's a journey, not a destination. I guess that's why us girls need so many bags. As I stepped into another new relationship, I started thinking about baggage. We all have it. We might try to dress it up in Louis Vuitton luggage or squeeze it into a cute little fanny pack—but even fake Gucci carries real emotions. I couldn't help but wonder: If everyone has baggage, why do we try so hard to hide it? And if we're so comfortable baring our skin, why do we hide our hearts? Maybe true love comes when someone sees it all (even the ugly duffle you hide under your bed) and loves you anyway. Someone who loves you more the more they see. Who sees you when you’re scared, anxious, angry, or even just sad, and sticks around to make sure you learn to love your authentic self and never try to be anything else. To make sure you love you as much as they do. And to make sure your shoes always, always match your baggage. #CarrieDragshaw _______________________ Let’s spread a little love today. Tag your besties—the ones whose baggage matches yours—and tell them how much you love them. 💝 CD&DC
Red for #InternationalWomensDay. As Carrie Dragshaw, I imitate a woman. As Dan, I’ve been imitiating y’all for a long long time. When I’m scared, I think of the countless women who look up at the ladder and see the struggle but climb anyway. When I’m intimidated, I channel the brave women who stare down the angry guards of power and push through. When I’m disheartened, I think of the tough and tenacious and doubly capable women who face down insults, indignity, disrespect and abuse and keep fighting. When I’m selfish, I think of my mom. Because she taught me that power can come from love. She taught me that power can be rooted in a love so strong that someone else comes before yourself. Today, I try so very hard to capture even 1% of the selfless love I learned from my mom. Today, my imitation might be more playful (and certainly more public) than ever before, but I’ve always imitated women. And I hope everyone has an absolutely wonderful #internationalwomensday
On the road to love, sometimes you’re left out in the cold. As Aleksandr’s light exhibition opened and the light in our love went out, I couldn’t help but wonder: When you depend on men for warmth, are you destined for frostbite? And if one love leaves you cold, are you brave or crazy to try again? If at first he breaks your heart, cry cry again. But no matter how cold it gets, maybe the best way to bounce back after a break up is to be fabulous. To grab your faux fur, fairy skirt, and, most importantly, fabulous friends who will keep you warm. Because love hurts—but love heals, too. And there’s a light in everyone who’s looking for love. Keep it bright. It’s how the good ones find each other. #CarrieDragshaw
It can be hard out there for a single girl, but there are a few words that provide instant comfort: “Vogue September Issue,” “2-for-1 Cosmopolitans,” “Manolo Blahnik Sample Sale,” and “Perfect First Date Follow-Up.” PFDFU. It's flirty and funny. Easy, breezy, and cool. He's clearly into it and you're like a pair of purple control top pantyhose: fun and holding it all together. It takes you right back to that perfect first date, when the conversation flowed effortlessly, the spark lit instantly, and the first kiss felt like fate. As you flirt on the phone, you float on a cloud that seems to sparkle from the inside, and for a moment you forget your baggage, you forget your past, you forget how many times you’ve felt this feeling before but it failed to last...and you smile. I couldn't help but wonder: Maybe love is like a mobile phone. When you have a good connection, you’ve just got to keep talking and hope for the best. #CarrieDragshaw
