The New Carrie Bradshaw

04 Apr 2012

How do you think AnnaSophia Robb compares to SJP?

It’s hard to imagine the role of Carrie Bradshaw being played by anyone other than Sarah Jessica Parker, but the first pictures have emerged of the new Carrie, 18-year-old AnnaSophia Robb, from the set of the SATC prequel The Carrie Diaries, and we are pleasantly surprised.

Although this particular outfit looks a bit safe compared to Carrie’s usual ensembles, we love the Eighties-style paint-slashed Carrie bag. We do, however, feel a bit sorry for AnnaSophia’s hair, which looks like it’s been tonged to within an inch of its life to achieve SJP’s curls.

The Carrie Diaries costume designer is Gossip Girl stylist Eric Daman. We just hope the upcoming TV prequel, which tells the story of how Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte met, lives up to the show’s reputation for fashion greatness.
