First Look: The Carrie Diaries

AnnaSophia Rob as teen Carrie (photo by Eric Liebowitz, c/o the WB)

I used to watch a lot of Sex & the City re-runs, so when I found out that they were filming a pilot for The Carrie Diaries (based on the novels), I was intrigued. I haven't read the books (surprise, surprise--I love me some teen chick-lit YA), but they're on my to-read list.

So...teen Carrie? In the 1980's? ...what?

I'm actually pleasantly surprised by the photo. I was scared the outfits might come off too costume-y, but it works. And hey, it is supposed to be Carrie, so typical fashion rules don't really apply to her anyway.

The show sounds like it's going to be a mash-up of Sex & the City and Gossip Girl, but set in the 80's, so I'm probably going to watch based on that alone. You know I love my fluffy teen soaps (especially when they're stylish). And I'm not going to lie--I do want to see more of the show's fashion.

Will you be watching The Carrie Diaries?

This looks like a pretty fun show. I actually had no clue it was coming out, but I also used to watch *a lot* of Sex and the City re-runs too so I'll have to check it out! And I actually like her outfit, cute :)

I will definetly be watching! This show looks right up my alley. I have never watched Sex and the City, but I know Anna Sophia Robb will do a great job portraying the young Carrie Bradshaw!

Oh, I read the first book in the series and it is really good. I can't wait to read the second one!

It's funny how we both did a blog post on the Carrie Diaries. We think a lot alike!
