AnnaSophia Robb is a TV and fashion star on the rise, and she holds a lot of new shiny titles to prove it; TV’s New ‘It-Girl’, a young Carrie, budding fashionista… and now, she can add Who What Wear‘s “Girl of the Month” to the list.
From Who What Wear.com:
“Not many girls could fill Sarah Jessica Parker’s shoes—er, Manolo Blahniks—as the iconic Carrie Bradshaw, but AnnaSophia Robb does so with aplomb in the CW’s new Sex and the City prequel, The Carrie Diaries (based on the book by Candace Bushnell). Our January Girl of the Month plays the part brilliantly in real life too, upping her fashion game with a steady mix of expertly curated ensembles. Combining a classically feminine aesthetic with fashion-forward pieces, Robb demonstrates sartorial versatility beyond her years and consistently impresses us with her smart style choices both on the red carpet and off the clock.”
Who What Wear compliments Robb on her savvy-style choices, especially since it’s no easy feat dressing age-appropriate and fashionably current. And I couldn’t agree more. How many times do we see young stars in the press for their fashion faux-pas?! Too often, I assure you. To be in style and make a statement, however bold, doesn’t mean you leave your brain hanging in your closet. They call it ‘fashion-sense‘ for a reason.
Some examples of Robb’s style-smarts involve the ‘art of balance’ — like pairing a semi-sheer blouse with a more conservative, below-the-knee skirt … or offsetting a shoulder-baring dress with a sophisticated blazer. The image above (from WhoWhatWear.com) is just a few picks they’ve gathered, inspired by our young Carrie, to help us get her look.
Part of playing the role of Carrie Bradshaw means taking risks in the statement department, contributing to fun fashion moments — complete with over sized floral patterns, thick color-blocking stripes, and pops of bright color against a crisp black and white outfit (like lime green pumps or a mustard yellow clutch). Robb is turning heads walking the streets of NYC, while keeping a youthful, playful nature.
Congratulations are in order for our young Covergirl/It-Girl/Girl Of The Month — that’s quite the resume so far, Miss Robb. I can only image what’s next.
