They always say it’s hard to beat the original.
And that is heightened when the show and character are so beloved as Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City.
But now, AnnaSophia Robb has started her attempt at filling Sarah Jessica Parker’s Manolo Blahniks with the premiere of Carrie Diaries last night.
While she’ll never be enough for some, it seems she has received the ultimate compliment.
AnnaSophia revealed how SJP recently gave her the seal of approval in taking on the name she made famous. She shared:
“She sent me a very lovely note kind of giving me her blessing and encouraging me and saying how dear the part was for her.”
How totes sweet!
We love that SJP is fully supporting the new series since it’s so very hard to take a project like that on.
But what did you think? Did it live up to expectations or leave you craving a SATC marathon?
