The first photo of AnnaSophia Robb as Carrie Bradshaw

And they’ve already started filming!

We reported earlier that AnnaSophia Robb had been cast as the lead of Carrie Bradshaw of the upcoming television show The Carrie Diaries. This is obviously be based on the HBO hit show Sex and the City. For the first promotion photo, Robb dons a sparkly short dress, red patent leather pumps and a green leopard print shrug on the NYC rooftop. Typical.

Don’t expect to fawn over the clothing choice though. Because this is a prequel to Carrie’s days as a NYC socialite with a closet full of luxury duds, this will probably consists of more buildable vintage pieces from Gossip Girl’s costume designer Eric Daman. And this is set in the 1980s during Bradshaw’s high school years. That could mean trouble. Candace Bushnell’s novel detailed Bradshaw’s early relationships, how she began as a writer, and her very first love: the wealthy Sebastian Kydd, on whom she’s had a crush since she was 12.

How about you? Are you getting excited…. or dreading the moment until this is possibly cancelled?
