Sex and the City debuted on HBO in 1998 and was an immediate cultural force bringing cosmo cocktails and Manolos into the public’s lexicon. Never before had television taken four sexually liberated women and portrayed them as the heroines of their own lives. Casual sex wasn’t punished. It was celebrated. Careers were cherished, not something to be contended with until a man came along. For six seasons Carrie and company led us through all the trials and tribulations of what being a single working gal entails – at least one truly awful break up and some regrets about buying shoes. Although the series finished a decade ago, its legacy still blazes on – mostly through the mind-numbing medium of Comedy Central marathons. And if the constant speculation over there possibly being a third movie is any indication, the SATC love isn’t going to end anytime soon. The fabulous OPSH, the Irish fashion start-up you need to check out, decided it was high time to dedicate an evening to discussing the show in association with Sure Moments That Matter.

Sex and the City Exposed took the form of a panel which was comprised of beauty writer and sex columnist Aisling Keenan and curator and artfetch.com founder Katie Tsouros. Entrepreneur Louise Dunne, founder of beauty app Pucker, was representing the self-starting Samanthas of the world and Emma Trainor gave it to us straight about what being a lawyer is really like.

OPSH CEO and Ireland’s preeminent girlboss Jennie McGinn chaired the discussion which covered what exactly being a working girl is like, as opposed to the show’s idea of a full time job. The merits of Big versus Aidan were dissected, and as ever, never resolved. Shoes, children, sex, Tinder and Youtube clips were also on the menu. And endless cocktails of course. Hat tip to West Coast Cooler for keeping the thirst at bay. Pucker were helping savvy attendees top up their manicures and we all left with some pretty nifty Sure totes emblazoned with some of Carrie’s best quotes. When can we do this again?
