The new trailer for “The Carrie Diaries,” starring AnnaSophia Robb as the young Carrie Bradshaw, is out and it’s the fun froth you would expect. You’ve got to hand it to the “Sex & The City” franchise: they sure are dedicated to fantasy! We’re not sure how many suburban girls fresh off the boat from Connecticut get scooped up immediately by the fashion editor at Interview magazine, who sends Carrie free clothes and trots her out to the hottest club. The ’80s fashion is fun, though, and AnnaSophia really has got Sarah Jessica Parker’s facial movements down. Clearly I will be watching this (although I’d never admit it) when it debuts in January.

“I don’t love the idea of playing another woman who loves fashion and is slightly flawed in New York City. I loved Carrie, and I don’t want to do the poor man’s version of her. And while those are often the lucrative things to do, it’s more reason to look in the other direction.”

–Carrie Bradshaw, er, I mean, Sarah Jessica Parker tells Elle that her days of playing Carrie clones are over. I’m not sure I totally believe this, but it’s definitely an encouraging thought, and I look forward to seeing what SJP has in store for us now that she’s officially hanging up her Manolos. In other news, I need that necklace in my jewelry box, like, now. [Huffington Post]

Of all the aspects of “Sex and the City” that were unrealistic — the fashion, the endless brunches, the 20-puns-per-minute banter, etc. — Carrie Bradshaw’s luxurious Manhattan apartment was always the most perplexing. I mean, she was a newspaper columnist with a shoe closet as big as my entire apartment. Right. And now all of our suspicions have been confirmed: the 4,100-square-foot Manhattan townhouse used as Carrie’s apartment building (one level of which was supposed to “hers”) in the show has been purchased for $9.8 million. The buyer hasn’t been identified, but I think we can be fairly sure it isn’t a struggling writer. Cosmo, anyone? [People]

I’m not sure if I’ll actually watch “The Carrie Diaries,” The CW’s upcoming show about “Sex and the City”‘s Carrie Bradshaw and crew as teenagers, but I am officially impressed with the styling on the show. This first photo of AnnaSophia Robb in costume as young Carrie is pretty damn close to how I imagine the world’s highest paid and most self-absorbed columnist would have looked in her early years. (In other words, not that different from how she looked in her thirties.) [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Understandably, the role of a high school-aged Carrie Bradshaw is highly coveted among legions of young actresses, but the character that led Sarah Jessica Parker to enduring fame leaves behind some seriously big shoes (Manolos, naturally) for a starlet to fill. “The Carrie Diaries,” Candace Bushnell’s prequel novel to the much-loved series, is coming to life on the small screen, and AnnaSophia Robb has snagged the eponymous role. A number of others were rumored to be in talks for the part, including Blake Lively and Elizabeth Olsen, but the 18-year-old actress best recognized for 2007′s heartbreaking “Bridge to Terabithia,” emerged victorious. The series will air on the CW, the network responsible for such successful young adult shows as “Gossip Girl” and “One Tree Hill,” but I have my reservations. I think AnnaSophia is adorable, and perfectly well-suited to the part, but the question stands — will Carrie Bradshaw, completely out of context, even hold a candle to the unapologetically fabulous thirty-something Carrie Bradshaw we all know and love?

Morning Quickies: Will Elizabeth Olsen Be Young Carrie Bradshaw In “Summer In The City”?

  • Casting rumors are afoot for a film adaption of Summer In The City, Candace Bushnell’s prequel to Sex & The City, where young Carrie Bradshaw meets all her pals in New York City. Here’s the alleged lineup: Elizabeth Olsen as Carrie, Blake Lively as Samantha Jones, Emma Roberts as Miranda Hobbes, and Selena Gomez as Charlotte York. This only gets a “meh” out of me. I’m sorry, but Blake is no Samantha. [Daily Mail UK]
