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

Cosmopolitan (India) - - UPFRONT -

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.”
