First Look: AnnaSophia Robb As Carrie Bradshaw In “The Carrie Diaries”

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.

The Soapbox: A Response To Julia Allison’s Op-Ed Addressed To Women Moving To NYC, From A Woman Who Once Moved To NYC

This weekend, The New York Post printed an op-ed titled “A warning to a new generation of women — don’t let ‘Sex and the City’ ruin your life,” written by “internet celebrity” Julia Allison and her friend Julia Price. At first I was like “huh,” and then I skimmed it and was like “UGH,” and then I…

AnnaSophia Robb Snags The Lead In “The Carrie Diaries”

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…

Courtney From “The Bachelor” Plagiarizes Carrie On “Sex And The City”

When it comes to reality TV competition shows, I tend to root for the evil genius. That’s why I am basically the only person watching this season of “The Bachelor” that is firmly on Team Courtney.

Cynthia Nixon On How Being Gay Is A Choice For Her

“I gave a speech recently, an empowerment speech to a gay audience, and it included the line ‘I’ve been straight and I’ve been gay and gay is better.’ They tried to get me to change it, because they said it implies that homosexuality can be a choice. And for me, it is a choice. I…

Who We Would Cast In “The Carrie Diaries”

Sex and the City 2” shook me free of my Carrie/Samantha/Miranda/Charlotte addiction. These days, I can’t even watch reruns of the show without getting flashbacks to that awful Abu Dhabi market scene.

Dude Does Excellent Job Of Impersonating Carrie Bradshaw

It’s nearly impossible to imagine anyone other than Sarah Jessica Parker playing Carrie Bradshaw. But if Darren Star ever wants to do an all-male revue of “Sex and the City,” he should call on illustrator Cedric Rivrain.

How To Get Carrie Bradshaw’s Bedroom For Less

I can’t help but wonder how Carrie Bradshaw would be living today with all of this talk about recession, stimulus packages and financial woes. Would her apartment be just as fabulous, or would she forgo the updates and spend her hard-earned cash on more shoes?

I’d hope her apartment would stay just as chic…

How Has Your Style Evolved?

Lately, I’ve been thinking about the evolution of my personal style. As a kid I was a chubby tomboy who favored dirty overalls and baggy T-shirts. In middle and high school, inspired by the indie music scene, I became a thrift shop queen (budding hipster?) with a large collection of vintage T-shirts. In college I…
