Carrie Bradshaw's blush pink tutu from the Sex and the City intro is an iconic TV moment in its own right, but it turns out that it wasn't originally part of the plan. As revealed in a newly-published alternative opening sequence, that tulle ensemble was actually supposed to be a baby blue dress.

"There were two wardrobes," Darren Star, who created the series, told Entertainment Weekly. "One was the tutu, and we did one pass where Sarah Jessica was wearing a blue dress and didn't get splashed. Instead, she trips when she sees the ad." The sequence was shot exactly 19 years ago, in March of 1998, on Fifth Ave in New York City.

According to costume designer Patricia Field, the tutu wasn't exactly a hit at first: "It was very difficult for the producers to understand the tutu," she told EW. "Sarah Jessica and I were fighting for it, and Darren said, 'Okay, but I want other outfits as possibilities.'" Thankfully, Star conceded. "It was such a brilliant choice because, in a way, Carrie's dancing through her life in New York," said Field.
