Who dare fill those expensive designer shoes made iconic by Sarah Jessica Parker for six seasons of ‘Sex and the City’ on HBO? And more importantly: will she be able to run in heels whilst simultaneously navigating the dangerous world of dating?!

The answer is AnnaSophia Robb, best known for her roles as Violet in Tim Burton’s ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ and the girl who doesn’t stop believing in God even though she loses an arm to a shark in ‘Soul Surfer.’

Producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage (‘Gossip Girl’) have been working on adapting ‘The Carrie Diaries‘ for the CW network for some time now. The prequel series to ‘Sex and the City’ follows Carrie Bradshaw as a young, fashionable lady in the 80s, presumably friends with a diverse group of young women, including one who is actually 30, which should gel nicely with the network’s long-standing tradition of hiring grown-ass adults to play high school kids.

More importantly, ‘The Carrie Diaries’ will answer the question posed by Carrie’s one-time love interest Jack Berger: would Carrie ever really wear a scrunchie? You bet your day-glo-loving caboose she would. Other styles we can’t wait to see featured on ‘Sex and the City: The Beginning’: Madonna’s ‘Like a Virgin,’ Madonna’s  ’Lucky Star,’ Jazzercise, Hammer Time, and Scarface with a face full of cocaine.
