Blake Lively rumoured to be the new Carrie Bradshaw
Could it be true?
I was on the bus today and peered over a girl's shoulder to read a snippet from this week's Grazia. To my utter surprise and excitement, I read that my favourite Gossip Girl fashionista, Blake Lively, is rumoured to be playing a young Carrie Bradshaw in a new prequel of SATC.
Gossip Girl is already seen by many as SATC for the younger generation. With a wardrobe stuffed with designer clothes and cocktails aplenty, there is little to doubt about this comparison between the two shows. So after seasons of playing the glamourous Serena Van der Woodsen, Blake Lively should not have a problem filling SJP's shoes.
As much as I love the idea of this prequel, I am a bit worried as to how it will affect the legacy of the series. For many fans, the last film was a huge disappointment and it would be a shame if this project further tarnished the SATC image. So fingers crossed that Blake delivers!
So what do you think? Could Blake replace SJP?
