The Carrie Diaries’ AnnaSophia Robb finally got to meet Sarah Jessica Parker on Monday (December 9). The actresses were both attending the Cosmo 100 lunch at Michael’s in New York City.
The pair were introduced at a Diane Von Furstenberg show earlier this year – but have never spoken or had their photograph taken together.
When photographers asked if they would pose together – Robb said, “Only if she wants to.” However the Sex and the City star was happy to do so and was heard telling Robb, “I feel like I know you.”
Cosmopolitan reports Parker commented, “It was lovely. She is lovely. Very, very sweet.”
Robb also said, “It was an honor to meet her. I felt very comfortable because she’s so easy to talk to and down to earth.”
The teen has said she has watched every episode of Sex and the City.
“I would watch the show and I would watch [Parker] for the mannerisms. How she talks. There are little things I would try to do while I was watching the show. I don’t know if it worked or not. We’re not trying to replicate the show, but there are certain elements of her personality that I wanted to bring to my character.”
The two were asked about their Carrie closets
Robb said, “We have a very big teen audience and so they want to be able to wear the Carrie look, so a lot of the things I wear are from Topshop or Urban Outfitters — a lot of them are attainable for our demographic, which is sort of empowering.”
Asked which Carrie has a better closet – Robb said, “I don’t think you can compare the two. I mean, I love the Carrie Bradshaw with the big dresses — HBO has a bigger budget than the CW!”
Sarah Jessica Parker replied, “I don’t know anything about the ’80s Carrie’s fashions,” she says “but I think all of it is probably really interesting!
