For the girl who stares lovingly into the window display at Barneys or tries to find Manolo Blahniks at a thrift store, prepare yourself for “The Carrie Diaries.” “The Carrie Diaries” is a new series coming to The CW based on the prequel to the famous Candace Bushnell novel, “Sex & The City.”
So yes, when we say Carrie, we of course mean, THE Carrie Bradshaw. “The Carrie Diaries” follows the life of a then 16-year-old Carrie as she navigates high school.
My head is hurting as it swirls with wonder about what “The Carrie Diaries” will entail? Who were Carrie’s high-school friends?! Why fashion!? Why writing!? Why Manhattan!? So many questions, which leads us to the 5 things we hope “The Carrie Diaries” will explore.
How did Carrie Bradshaw become a fashionista? Judging from the trailer, Carrie wasn’t always rocking ready-to-wear fashion straight from the runways. Did a sample sale turn her? Did someone hold her hand in the aisles of Bergdorf Goodman and show her the way?!
When did Carrie decide to become a writer? Did she have a column in the highschool paper? Were Carrie’s essays filled with witticisms and puns as well? We would love to find out what inspired Carrie to pick up the pen.
Who were her high-school girlfriends? Did Carrie have a gaggle of gal pals that she brunched with through her teen years? Was Carrie always the alpha female of her brat pack or did she dethrone the queen Bee? Was she a Blair or a Serena!?
Who was the first boy to break her heart? Was it her highschool love or her unrequited crush on the quarterback? What kind of guy is responsible for making Carrie the power single female that she turned out to be?
When did she fall in love with Manhattan and why Manhattan in the first place? We know Carrie hails from Connecticut, she could have ended up anywhere on the East coast, heck, what if Carrie landed in Los Angeles? When did Carrie go from being an out-of-towner to a true Manhattan socialite?
