‘The Carrie Diaries’ Makes The ’80s Cool Again In New Cast Photos

This winter The CW will be taking Sex and the City‘s Carrie Bradshaw way back to 1984 in The Carrie Diaries, and, if the new cast photos are any indication, they’ll be doing it with a commitment to the era’s neon palette that would make Carrie’s future fashion maven self proud. The cast sports shoulder pads, mesh tops and, in Carrie’s case, impressively coiffed curls against a paint-spattered background. Check out the gallery below and let us know if you’ll be following Carrie to the ’80s!

Since we already know how Carrie meets the great love of her life, The Carrie Diaries will explore how the Connecticut-born Carrie began her lifelong love affair with New York City. The series stars AnnaSophia Robb (Soul Surfer), Austin Butler (Switched at Birth), Ellen Wong (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), Kate Findlay (The Killing), Brendan Dooling (An Elf’s Story: An Elf on the Shelf) and Freema Agyeman (Doctor Who).

The Carrie Diaries premieres January 2013 on The CW.
