Carrie Bradshaw is at a major crossroads in her life on The Carrie Diaries. After the recent death of her mother, the teenager has pulled away from her father and littleÂ sister, eager to get out of a home filled with grief and unresolved regrets. An opportunity comes in the form of an internship at a law office in the city, an experience that opens theÂ sheltered Connecticut girl up to a world of fashion, romance, and glamour.
OnceÂ she meets aÂ style editor from Interview magazine,Â she gets thrown into events thatÂ she had only previouslyÂ seen in the pages of her fashion mags. With the exposure toÂ exciting parties, good-looking boys, and luxurious clothes, Carrie’s living her dream even before getting her highÂ school diploma, but will this prove to all be too much? The aspiring fashionistaÂ still has a couple of years ofÂ school remaining and will have to bear down in order to keep her decent grades and core group of friends, but how much motivation willÂ she have to do that?Â She already has the dream job in her dream city and enough connections to give her a good foundation in the fashion industry,Â so highÂ school will likelyÂ start toÂ seem like an even more unnecessary evil than it already does.
The Carrie DiariesÂ starsÂ AnnaSophia RobbÂ as Carrie,Â Austin ButlerÂ as Carrie’s love interestÂ Sebastian,Â Chloe BridgesÂ as aspiring model Donna LaDonna,Â Ellen WongÂ as Carrie’s best friend Jill (aka Mouse), andÂ Freema AgyemanÂ as Carrie’s mentor Larissa.
