Sarah Jessica Parker on 'The Carrie Diaries': 'It's odd'

Sarah Jessica Parker originated the role of Carrie Bradshaw on HBO’s Sex and the City, but she’s not exactly a fan of the CW’s Sex prequel, The Carrie Diaries.

In a new interview with luxury shopping site Net-A-Porter.com’s online magazine The Edit, Parker said that while Diaries star AnnaSophia Robb — who plays the young Carrie — is “lovely,” she’s “not sure” how she feels about the series.

“You know, I think it’s one of those tests of your generosity,” Parker said. “[AnnaSophia] is a lovely girl and I want her to feel good about, but it’s… odd.”

The 47-year-old actress, who wears pieces from designers like Victoria Beckham and Saint Laurent creative director Hedi Slimane in photos that accompany the interview, also noted that, while she believes the candid conversations between the original Carrie and company “encouraged women to share more candidly,” she’s paying a price for playing the well-heeled character.

'Carrie Diaries' star AnnaSophia Robb on her love of H&M and her number one style tip

On March 2, H&M celebrated the launch of its “Denim Days” campaign in style, inviting The Carrie Diaries star AnnaSophia Robb to host the event. The 19-year-old, a self-proclaimed fan of the store, was decked out entirely in clothing from the retailer, including a white tank, a gold sequin jacket, and, of course, a pair of jeans. “I love H&M,” Robb told us. “I shop here with my girlfriends all the time.”

While hundreds of guests lined up to customize their own denim (and take advantage of the 25 percent discount), EW spoke to Robb, who never turns down a chance to shop at the store, despite having access to all kinds of designer labels on the set of Sex and the City prequel. “I love that it’s affordable, but also stylish,” she said. “Girls want to look fashion-conscious, but at the same time they don’t want to blow all the money they earn babysitting.” READ FULL STORY

'Carrie Diaries' costume designer Eric Daman on re-styling Carrie Bradshaw

Carrie Bradshaw may be back on TV, but don’t expect to see her running around in Manolos anytime soon.

“Everyone’s going to be watching and hoping she’s in Manolos in high school, but I think they’re going to be pleasantly surprised that she’s in Keds and it makes sense [because] they’re leopard Keds,” says Eric Daman, costume designer for The Carrie Diaries, the 80s prequel to Sex and the City that premièred last night.

“[I looked at] how [SATC’s Carrie] would mix things up and play around with style and push the envelope a little bit,” says Daman, who worked on SATC under legendary costume designer Patricia Field and later helmed the costume department for Gossip Girl. “I wanted to keep that kind of linear with the younger Carrie, but of course making it more teen appropriate.”
