This Girl is the New Carrie Bradshaw!
Sex and the City is back and we’re chatting with newcomer Annasophia Robb, 18, who plays a younger Carrie in The Carrie Diaries
Cosmo: Are you like Carrie at all?
AnnaSophia Robb: “I love a good pair of heels like any girl!”
C: Is it true Sarah Jessica Parker sent you a letter about playing Carrie? What did she say?
ASR: “Yes, she did, and it was so sweet. She was really encouraging about it all and totally supportive. I couldn’t believe I had a letter from her. I wrote back to her too.”
C: Did you watch old SATC re-runs to try and get some of her mannerisms down?
ASR: “Yeah I did. I just wanted to really click with the character. I know it is going to get compared to the original Sex and the City, but we are never going to be that. The Carrie Diaries is more for my generation and it is the same character, but it is set in the ’80’s, when she was growing up in New York. It is really fun and I hope everyone enjoys watching it as much as we have enjoyed making it.”
C: Were you excited about wearing all those great fashions?
ASR: “Yes, it was all lots of fun. The fashion part of it was great. Carrie’s wardrobe is like every girl’s dream ( laughs).”
C: How would you describe your own style?
ASR: “When I’m at home, I’m casual and comfortable. I tend to wear work out clothes and lots of sweaters. But when I’m going g out, I love wearing dresses and heels. I edge more on the e bohemian side. When I dress up, I’m more of a girly-girl so being Carrie was like playing dress up every day!”
C: Which celeb styles are you loving right now? ?
ASR: “I’ve always loved Kate Bosworth’s style. She is so effortlessly chic and always seems comfortable in what she’s wearing.”
C: Carrie’s a real shopper. What’s your shopping secret?
ASR: “If you want to buy a new trendy item, go for knockoffs. That’s awful of me to say, but the ‘in’ thing never lasts, so why waste money?”
C: What’s your summer fashion uniform?
ASR: “A romper. They are flirty and fun, and shorts are a necessity for me.”
