AnnaSophia Robb was only 12 years old when "Sex and the City" went off the air, so she hadn't seen the iconic series with fashion as its focus -- but she says she has since caught up on all the episodes.
Now, as the star of "The Carrie Diaries" prequel, having to dress as the '80s teen queen helps Robb get into character -- and, in the short time she has been filming, she says it has also affected her personal style.
Were you into vintage at all before doing this series? Has it changed your fashion sense?
I love thrift shopping. I would say that it has changed in that I care more about fashion now. Not that I am worrying about what I am wearing but having fun with it and it is an expression of yourself.
Can you talk about your personal style compared to Carrie's? Is there any overlap?
I am starting to wear a lot more tights now. Carrie wears a lot of tights in the city because she wears a lot of skirts and it is so cold, I need to wear something on my legs. Then, I would say I am starting to wear a lot more different patterns. Carrie doesn't have a specific color. It is more a layering of different patterns and textures and eras together.
What is your style generally? Are you funky? Casual?
It depends on the day. It depends on how much energy I have to put into it. New Year's, I wore a big, poofy white skirt, which is very Carrie -- a crinoline, but most of the time I like just wearing stuff that is comfortable and boots and patterned jeans and big, comfy sweaters.
"The Carrie Diaries" airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. on The CW.
