The Carrie Diaries
Last night was the series premier of The Carrie Diaries on the CW, and as a serious fan of Sex and the City I just had to tune in and watch. I was most excited for the fashion (obviously!) and being that the show is set in the 80’s I was expecting some serious iconic Madonna-esque style….but sadly this was not really the case. BOO.
There were very few characters who actually dominated the shoulder-pad-mini-skirt-huge-earrings-poofy-hair look of that era. Miss Carrie Bradshaw, being a major fashion icon of our time, definitely needs to step up her game in the younger years. But hey, we all grow into our style right?
As an aspiring writer myself, I have to admit I am hooked on this new show! This could possibly be my new Gossip Girl…but those are some big shoes to fill (fellow Gossip Girl fans know what I mean).
I must say, young Carrie played by AnnaSophia Rob acts and sounds EXACTLY like Sarah Jessica Parker…it’s scary yet awesome. Have I convinced you to watch it with me yet? Maybe the fashion will get better 😉
If you watched it, let me know what you thought!
