AnnaSophia Robb is taking her first steps in her typically sparkling silver sequinned dress and red stilettos before the pilot of Sex and The City prequel The Carrie Diaries starts in May. The picture, released by Warner Brothers this week, reveals a glamorous cityscape when in actuality the majority of the Candace Bushnell’s prequel novel took place in the cosy Connecticut suburbs where Carrie was raised with an overprotective father and two younger sisters.
AnnaSophia received the seal of approval from Sarah Jessica Parker: “She sent me a letter! I wrote her one back, too,” Robb told Us Weekly. “She was just very encouraging about it all. It was really cool!” She added: ‘I’ve been watching the show and really trying to click with the character. I know everyone’s going to compare it to Sex and the City, but we’re never going to be that. The show is more for my generation, but it’s set in the ’80s, so it’s fun.”
