From her wild blonde curls to her red patent leather pumps, AnnaSophia Robb absolutely nails it as Carrie Bradshaw in the '80s in the first image from the new show, The Carrie Diaries.

The 18-year-old Soul Surfer actress, who was tapped to play a young Sarah Jessica Parker in The CW's upcoming pilot based on Candace Bushnell's novel Carrie Diaries, rocks a silver sequined dress with a bright green leopard cardigan and rainbow belt.

"It's a rare invitation to dress a character whose reputation truly precedes her," the show's costume designer Eric Daman gushed. "Having played a hand in designing for the Carrie we know and love, I am honored to be chosen to carry the torch — to illuminate the woman we know by discovering the young lady she was."

The prequel to HBO's smash Sex and the City will feature Robb coming of age in 1980s New York City alongside her rebellious little sister, played by Stefania Owen.

"When AnnaSophia Robb walked into the room, we knew we had found her," The Carrie Diaries writer/executive producer Amy B. Harris said of the search for the lead role. "Her grace, intelligence, sense of fun and her empathetic nature make her the perfect girl to bring our young Carrie to life. The fact that she loves a gorgeous pair of heels doesn’t hurt either," she added."
