If you already miss The CW's Gossip Girl, you won't have to wait much longer for the network to replace it with another salacious and fashionable show.

Premiering January 14th is The Carrie Diaries, which follows a young Carrie Bradshaw (AnnaSophia Robb) pre-Sex-and-the-City, as she navigates both Manhattan and her hometown in suburban Connecticut in the '80s.

And falling in line with Sex and the City's fashion legacy (courtesy of costume designer Patricia Field), the show has Gossip Girl costume designer Eric Daman on hand to dress the young Carrie in all her pre-Manolo looks. (Daman gave InStyle.com this exclusive preview of Carrie's fashion above!) "This is more of an independent film and we have to make everybody '80s-appropriate," he told InStyle.com of his approach.
