Aug 21 2016 - 7:20am

Kim Cattrall [1] is 60 this weekend, and in our opinion, she's as sexy as ever. We're still convinced that she is Samantha Jones (not a bad thing), so it wouldn't be a true birthday celebration without a closer look at her iconic Sex and the City character's wardrobe. Sure, we've salivated over Carrie's city-girl outfits [2] and were smitten with Charlotte's posh Upper East Sider wares [3], but a lot of the time, it was Samantha Jones's unforgettably sultry style that left a lasting impression.

This was one woman who lived for color, statement jewels, oversize hats, and a plunging neckline. We have to admit: Kim knows how to fully commit to a character. She was never afraid to bare more than a little skin and go the distance as Samantha, which is why we're still inspired by her power suits, slinky cocktail dresses, bold costume jewelry, and sky-high heels. After you're done scrolling through our favorite scene-stealing style moments courtesy of Samantha Jones, channel your favorite fictional character in these outfits [4].
