New Carrie Bradshaw AnnaSophia Robb mingles with iconic original SJP

AnnaSophia Robb is prepping to play one of the biggest fashionistas of all time – iconic character Carrie Bradshaw.

So what better way to establish herself on the style scene than grace the front row of one of New York Fashion Week's hottest shows, Diane von Furstenberg.

What's more, the starlet even got the opportunity to mingle with original Carrie Bradshaw Sarah Jessica Parker.

While it is unclear if the pair actually met, both ladies watched the presentation and headed backstage after to congratulate the designer, whose beautifully cut, very wearable collection was met with positive reviews.

Diane had lit up the runway with a rainbow of colours.

And the 65-year-old, who married Prince Egon of Furstenberg back in 1969, had drawn inspiration from her own days as a princess.

"It really is so much about me when I was a young princess," she revealed afterwards.

"A rebel princess. When, yes, you go to the Roman palaces, you go to Jaipur, you go to Marrakech, and you look the sophisticated aristocrat, but you take off the tunic and the layers and you are ready to go dancing all night."

The exotic destinations she mentions were reflected in silk, terracotta palazzo pants, embellished shift dresses and patterned jumpsuits.

But the show also had a slightly futuristic element, which came in the form of Google Glasses.

Diane has partnered with Google to showcase ‘Glass’, the internet giant’s latest venture – a pair of glasses that augments your reality.

The frames consist of a small camera which allows the wearer to film and photograph their viewpoint and use the headset much the same way as a smartphone.

"Beauty, style and comfort are as important to Glass as the latest technology" said Google co-founder Sergey Brin. "We are delighted to bring Glass to the runway together with DVF."

Many of the models were wearing the glasses, and SJP was spotting trying out the specs.
