To say that the pressure is on for AnnaSophia Robb would be an understatement. Earlier on this year the 19 year-old was confirmed as the person to play the young Carrie Bradshaw in the 'The Carrie Diaries', the prequel to 'Sex And The City'. On the one hand the role is step in the right direction for Robb, which is apparent from all the brands and press currently courting her, but on the flip side expectations are high.
'I'm really excited. It's a bit nerve wracking but I think it will be a great show,' she said when asked about being involved with the show. 'We have a great cast and great writers and the fashion's going to be amazing but it will definitely have a different flavour than the original 'Sex and the City' because it's for a younger audience. But I really hope to make 'Carrie Diaries' the 'Sex and the City' of my generation.'
When it was announced that 'The Carrie Diaries', the prequel to 'Sex and the City' was definitely going to go ahead, I must admit that I was dubious. These things never seem to have quite the same effect as the original and often fail to live up to the hype and expectation that naturally comes along with such news. To say then that AnnaSophia Robb has a big task on her hands then as she gears up to play the young Carrie Bradshaw in the series, is quite the understatement.
But this image slightly subdues by fears. Whether it's the big hair or the sequins, the styling definitely seems to play true to the character which undoubtedly could have ruined it had they got it wrong. Even Sarah Jessica Parker has given the young actress the seal of approval. '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!'
Are you convinced?
Yesterday Salvatore Ferragamo held a big party in New York to celebrate the launch of their new fragrance, Signorina. While they managed to pull a pretty impressive guest list - everyone from Veronica Webb to Emma Roberts attended - all eyes were on AnnaSophia Robb.
As we reported last month, the young actress has just secured the role of the young Carrie Bradshaw in much anticipated, 'The Carrie Diaries'. While her look didn't wow me, I have a feeling that Jennifer Lawrence and Elizabeth Olsen might have some competition with her in the coming months. The TV series is set to be a big one and it's only a matter of time before the industry begin to woo her just as they are doing to Lawrence and Olsen at the moment.
