Dubbed “The Hot New TV Show” by People StyleWatch, The Carrie Diaries is turning heads in the fashion world with fierce on-set style! If you haven’t heard, The Carrie Diaries is the prequel to the hit show Sex and the City. The show follows 16-year-old Carrie Bradshaw as an intern in New York City in the 80s. An emerging fashionista, young Carrie is fearless in experimenting with fashion!
Emmy-Award winning Costume Designer Eric Daman says one key tip to scoring style as memorable as Carrie’s is to “add a finishing personal touch.” For Carrie, that signature piece happens to be our Little Letter “C” Necklace in 14kt Yellow Gold! Serving as Carrie’s signature necklace, the Little Letter “C” is a fun prelude to the Carrie nameplate in Sex and The City, and is the perfect way to give her outfits “an individual look.”
AnnaSophia Robb, the show’s star, is an Alex Woo fan on- and off-set! When asked if she had a signature piece like Carrie’s bag, she answered, “I actually have an “A” necklace that the creator of the show gave to me!” Robb rocks her Little Letter “A” in 14kt Yellow Gold, how do you wear yours?
A few things to know about the CW’s new Sex and the City prequel The Carrie Diaries: It’s set in Connecticut and New York City, it stars the adorable AnnaSophia Robb (left) as young Carrie Bradshaw and it takes place in the 1980s — an awesomely bad time for fashion.
But costume designer Eric Daman saw the show’s tricky time period as a reason to have fun with clothing — not a reason to fret.
“I looked immediately to those high school classics, and the Molly Ringwald type of girl,” Daman, formerly the costume designer on Gossip Girl, tells PEOPLE. “It’s definitely a refined ’80s look … giving those trends a contemporary spin while still giving a nod to the Carrie of Sex and the City.”
Daman says he’s lucky that the ’80s are having a bit of a revival in the fashion world — labels like Cardigan and Marc by Marc Jacobs have given him plenty to work with. Having an enthusiastic starlet to work with is helpful, too.
“AnnaSophia is up for anything — she came in really wide-eyed,” Daman says. “She’s a true delight, and I don’t think they could’ve cast anyone better to fill those Manolos.”
We’ll first meet young Carrie at high school in small-town Connecticut, where she dresses to her surroundings. “Her Connecticut look is a bit quieter, has a dustier palette,” Daman says. But once she finds herself interning in New York City, “the more fashion she’s going to explore,” he promises.
And just like in Sex and the City, there will be signature pieces that our heroine wears time and time again.
“There’s a little ‘C’ initial pendant by Alex Woo that’s the prelude to the famous Sex and the City ‘Carrie’ nameplate necklace,’” Daman says. “It’s important to get those little things in there, and establish a connection to the original without beating people over the head with it. We’ve kept it nuanced enough to feel fresh.”
To keep fans posted on major fashion moments throughout the series, Daman plans to Tweet and blog about Robb’s most notable looks, so be sure to follow him online. And catch The Carrie Diaries on Monday at 8 p.m. ET on the CW. Tell us: Are you planning to watch the show?

N.Y.C. jewerly designer Alex Woo has created a necklace that lets you look great while doing good! The delicate pendant is inspired by Chimpanzee the DisneyNature documentary about the endangered species and is crafted from sustainable sterling silver or 14kt gold. Better yet, 20% of net proceeds go to the Jane Goodall Institute which helps care for orphaned chimpanzees and protect their natural habitats in the wild.
Would Carrie Bradshaw still be Carrie Bradshaw without her iconic nameplate necklace? The team behind the CW’s Carrie Diaries must not think so: they’ve given new star AnnaSophia Robb a pendant of her own.
On the new show — a prequel to the wildly popular Sex and the City — Robb wears Alex Woo’s “little letter C” 14-karat gold necklace. The piece sits on a diamond-cut 14-karat yellow-gold chain.
Set during Carrie Bradshaw’s high school years, The Carrie Diaries (based on author Candice Bushnell’s 2010 novel) details the budding fashionista’s early relationships, how she began as a writer, and her very first love: the wealthy Sebastian Kydd, on whom she’s had a crush since she was 12. The series just started filming in N.Y.C., and also calls on the talents of Gossip Girl costumer (and former SATC assistant costumer) Eric Daman.
Even as she’s traveled the world for Fashion Week, Jessica Alba has kept daughters Honor and Haven close thanks to a delicate gold “h” pendant she’s been wearing everywhere lately. The hand-sculpted necklace — made of solid matte-finished 14-karat yellow gold and standing just 1/2-in. high — is a creation by jeweler Alex Woo.
“It’s an ‘honor’ to see fellow moms like Jessica wear my ‘little h’ necklace,” Woo tells PEOPLE. “I hope one day her daughters will be fighting to be the next one to wear it.”
Woo’s line — also worn by stars like Rachel Bilson, Zooey Deschanel, Kelly Ripa and Kellan Lutz — includes several series of similarly small charms, plus earrings, bracelets and rings. Tell us: Do you wear jewelry that reminds you of your children?
As the co-host of the QVC-sponsored OCRF bash in Water Mill, N.Y., the star stands out in a dramatic asymmetrical zebra-print dress, sky-high wedges, Alex Woo necklace and an armful of golden bangles.
