Those still hoping for Sex and the City 3 can at least sink their teeth into the recently released trailer for The Carrie Diaries.
In the three-minute preview, a fresh-faced Carrie Bradshaw (as played by 18-year-old AnnaSophia Robb) pursues an internship in Manhattan after her mother’s death, to begin her life-long love affair with the city that never sleeps. In true SATC style, Carrie catches the eye of an Interview magazine stylist, befriends her, and gets whisked away for a night out on the town. Carrie later pulls a Cinderella and leaves the party to run to the cute boy and friends (including Canadian Ellen Wong) waiting for her back in suburbia.
While the show probably won’t be as risqué or philosophical as the original HBO series, there are still clothes to admire and criticize! Fresh from the set of Gossip Girl, costume designer Eric Damen brings the 1980s back with shoulder pads, loud colours and embarrassing prom-worthy dresses.
Basically, the question on everyone’s mind is: will the ’80s Carrie make as big of a sartorial splash as the original? We’ll have to wait until next January to find out! —Portia Baladad
