Omg, I am beyond excited! Sex and the City for mini fashionistas arrives in the New Year as filming of The Carrie Diaries has begun on the streets of Manhattan. Based on Candace Bushnell’s follow-up literary offering to our favourite fashionable foursome, The Carrie Diaries and Summer and the City serve as a prequel to the life of Carrie Bradshaw.
Retaining her statement blonde curls and kooky dress sense, the young Carrie is played by actress Anna Sophia Robb, as we are whisked back through time to the ‘80s. Far removed from the glamorous lifestyle and designer-laden closet of her 30-something counterpart, played by our beloved Sarah Jessica Parker; the new series finds the young Carrie still in school in 1984. Grieving the loss of her mother and subsequent obligation to her younger sister, Carrie escapes it all with an internship in New York.
Dipping her toe into the fashion scene of the Big Apple with her first foray into the magazine industry and the city’s seductive party scene, which in truth acts as an ever-evolving catwalk of trends and faces; Carrie finds herself caught between the life she had and the one she craves.
