Eric Daman Talks Dressing Carrie Bradshaw 2.0 for 'The Carrie Diaries'

Can't help but wonder what a teenage Carrie Bradshaw will look like?

Costume designer Eric Daman, who is swapping Gossip Girl for the CW's new Sex and the City prequel, The Carrie Diaries, is spilling some details about what our blonde heroine will be wearing circa 1984, the Huffington Post reports.

"I know that there are a lot of women—a lot of people around the world—who hold Carrie Bradshaw as this fashion icon," Daman said at the premiere for the show's pilot, which will hit airwaves in January. "So to be able to go back in time and pre-design who she is and lay the DNA of where she is going is very important."

Carrie's grown-up nameplate will be referenced by a 'C' pendant worn by her younger self, played by AnnaSophia Robb, while fans can also expect lots of tutu-esque crinolines and '80s-specific fashions like a pink polka-dot party dress seen in the show's extended trailer (above).

Still, the show's creators, author Candace Bushnell and Amy B. Harris, are careful to not mess around too much with the Carrie and co. that we know from the original Sex and the City series.

"We didn't want to do the Baby Muppets syndrome—'Oh it's baby Samantha! It's baby Miranda,' said Harris of their decision to give young Carrie a new set of pals.

Baby Samantha?! Shudder.
