You didn't think Carried died with the movie, did you? Because if you did, you might be so glad to know she's back - but younger. Candace Bushnell and Harper Collins have teamed up to bring you, The Carrie Diaries, a two-book deal that explores Carrie's life as a teenager, and the series of horrible, awkward dates she went on and the cute, but slightly stupid boy from her geometry class that she pined endlessly for in between scenes in Theater. The books come out in 2010, sure to be followed by that replacement to Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants Darren Star's been praying for. Hold on to your Maddens, girls!

Carrie Bradshaw is Back! How to Get Her Iconic Style Today
Tonight is the big premiere of The Carrie Diaries, the CW show that aims to tell the back story of New York's favorite fictional sex columnist Carrie Bradshaw as young girl who apparently grew up in the Connecticut 'burbs. With Gossip Girl star stylist Eric Daman on board to provide the beginnings of Carrie's theatrical, over-the-top style, we have high hopes for the 80s-inspired clothing that young Carrie as played by AnnaSophia Robb will wear. But as on-point as we're sure the new show's wardrobe will be, we're having a hard time envisioning us trying to cop a 1980s teenager's style--even if she is Carrie Bradshaw. So we thought we'd reminisce about the amazing outfits of OG CB, played to iconic perfection by Sarah Jessica Parker--and recreate them for all you modern-day Carries out there. Let's be honest: Sex and the City might have been a story about a woman and her soul mates (and the men along the way), but her closet definitely deserved top billing. From being mugged for her Manolos to passing out at the opera, here are our top ten Carrie Bradshaw style moments, and where to get 'em for yourself. Don't forget to check out The Carrie Diaries tonight on the CW (if you're not too busy watching The Bachelor, which is sadly airing in the same time slot. Damn you, basic cable!).

The CW, home to shows like Gossip Girl and Hart of Dixie, has officially ordered a pilot for The Carrie Diaries, based on the novel by Candace Bushnell.

Clearly, SJP's not 100% on board with the idea of someone else inhabiting the role she played for eight years on HBO. But shouldn't we care more about the opinion of the person who actually created the character?
