    'The Carrie Diaries': AnnaSophia Robb As Carrie Bradshaw

    Sarah Jessica Parker has given AnnaSophia Robb her blessing to play the young Carrie Bradshaw, but now, you can weigh in.

    Warner Bros. has released the first image of Robb dressed in full-on '80s fashion as the young Carrie Bradshaw for The CW's pilot of "The Carrie Diaries."

    "Having been a part of the 'Sex and the City' series, I felt such an honor and responsibility to the fans of the show to find someone who embodied the spirit of Manhattan’s favorite 'It' girl," Amy B. Harris, writer/executive producer of "The Carrie Diaries." "When AnnaSophia Robb walked into the room, we knew we had found her. Her grace, intelligence, sense of fun and her empathetic nature make her the perfect girl to bring our young Carrie to life. The fact that she loves a gorgeous pair of heels doesn’t hurt either."

    Sarah Jessica Parker played fictional fashion icon Carrie Bradshaw for six seasons on HBO and in two "Sex and the City" feature films.

    “It's a rare invitation to dress a character whose reputation truly precedes her," Emmy-winning costume designer Eric Daman said in statement of the young Carrie. "Having played a hand in designing for the Carrie we know and love, I am honored to be chosen to carry the torch -- to illuminate the woman we know by discovering the young lady she was.”

    Robb said Parker sent her a letter after the young actress got the role in The CW pilot, which is based on Candace Bushnell's young adult novel series about Carrie Bradshaw in high school.

    "She sent me a letter! I wrote her one back, too," Robb told Us Weekly. "She was just very encouraging about it all. It was really cool!"

    'The Vampire Diaries' Recap: The Killer Is Revealed!

    Do not read on if you have not seen Season 3, Episode 16 of The CW's The Vampire Diaries, entitled, "1912."

    Well, that was interesting. As any fan of "The Vampire Diaries" knows, you have to be ready for anything -- to expect the unexpected -- but was anyone actually expecting that?

    The mystery of the Mystic Falls serial killer was finally solved, resulting in one of the most shocking moments in the series' history. Alaric was the one killing off the council members. He killed Meredith's jerk of an ex-boyfriend, Caroline's father, and ironically, he nearly killed himself.

    In an effort to "hang" with Stefan -- you know, "brother bonding" -- Damon takes his baby bro on a walk down memory lane, where they recall a similar string of murders happening throughout Mystic Falls in 1912.

    The only factor linking the two cases was the magical Gilbert ring that Alaric and Jeremy wear now. Hopefully, this means that we'll finally get to understand more about the ring and its powers. And should we be worried about Jeremy? After all, we haven't seen him in a while. How do we know that his ring isn't making him go completely bonkers?

    But perhaps the biggest question is whether or not Alaric is curable? With actor Matt Davis heading to The CW's "Cult" pilot, things don't look good for Alaric's diagnosis. And since we know how Alaric likes to get himself into trouble, if he takes the ring off, is his death imminent?

    I hope not. Alaric and Elena's brother-sister relationship is quite honestly one of my favorites on the show, and I would hate to see what kind of an emotional -- and dangerous -- wreck Elena would be without him.

    Now that our brains have all been thrown for a loop -- and with the mystery finally solved -- let's focus on some of my favorite parts of the episode, all of which involve the Salvatore brothers. I have to be honest. My favorite "Vampire Diaries" relationship is the one between Damon and Stefan. This season, the Salvatore brothers have come closer than ever to repairing their relationship, and Damon's heartfelt confession to Stefan by the episode's end proves that maybe they can finally be brothers again.

    In 1912, their roles have been reversed. It's Stefan who reaches out to his brother and tries to convince him that he's changed. Fast forward 100 years, and it's Damon who invites an obviously thirsty Stefan on a hunt to find the killer.
