AnnaSophia Robb fills big Manolos on ‘Carrie Diaries’

PASADENA, Calif. — AnnaSophia Robb was born in 1993, so she has no fond memories of leg warmers, Rubik’s Cubes, or Kajagoogoo. Instead, the actress is making new ones as she navigates the fashions, fads, and sounds of the ’80s as a young Carrie Bradshaw on the CW’s new series “The Carrie Diaries.”

Robb (“Soul Surfer”) is playing the high school version of the character played by Sarah Jessica Parker on HBO’s “Sex and the City” for six seasons and two feature films. Alongside her castmates and the show’s producers, Robb recently fielded questions at the Television Critics Association press tour about everything from big hair to the big shoes she’s filling.
