CARRIE BRADSHAW, CIRCA 1984
I have to admit, I miss Sex And The City. But, who doesn’t? This TV series will be the perfect antidote for die-hard SATC fashion groupies.
When I heard Candace Bushnell is going to make the prequel series based on the book “The Carrie Diaries” with the former writer and producer on SATC, Amy B. Harris, I couldn’t be more thrilled. Yes, I am a true Team Carrie circa SJP era, but I supposed it’s going to be a fun nostalgic walk down memory lane, imagining 16 years old Carrie in her senior year of high school at the early 1980’s.
AnnaSophia Robb is going to be Carrie in this hugely anticipated prequel, complete with those curly locks, tutus and high heels. Expect new cast of characters (she hasn’t met Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte by then), love interest (sorry, no Mr.Big), new location (this time it’s Connecticut) and last but definitely not least, Carrie’s fashion sense. Eric Daman who worked as Patricia Field’s assistant for three seasons of SATC, and the costume designer for Gossip Girl, will be in charge for everything young Carrie wore. So far, reportedly, he’s been using Marc by Marc Jacobs and Derek Lam to name a few.
I’m sure there’ll be a lot of comparison between young Carrie and “THE” Carrie Bradshaw as we know and adore, but it’s going to be interesting to see how the adult Carrie was mold before Mr.Big era. Let’s just wait and see until the show debuts on January 2013.
