Here it is: the first official photo of AnnaSophia Robb all dressed up as young Carrie Bradshaw for the Sex and the City prequel, The Carrie Diaries, which will soon be coming to the CW for our entertainment and/or torture. She's certainly got the beginnings of Carrie's wild hair and her penchant for high heels, but that's about where the likeness ends. She doesn't look very '80s, and she's looking a lot sweeter and more innocent than SJP ever did when Patricia Field was dressing her for the HBO series—though maybe this is supposed to be a time before Carrie was ruined by all of the toxic bachelors of Manhattan stomping on her optimistic heart. Yet, it's hard to imagine such a time ever existed or that we'd want to see it even if it did.
