Carrie Bradshaw is a fictional character and lead character of the HBO romantic sitcom Sex and the City, as well as the CW series The Carrie Diaries, portrayed by actresses Sarah Jessica Parker and AnnaSophia Robb, respectively. She is a semi-autobiographical character created by Candace Bushnell, who published the book Sex and the City, based on her own columns in the New York Observer. On the HBO series, Bradshaw is a New York City newspaper columnist, fashionista, and later, freelance writer for Vogue and a published author. Her weekly column, "Sex and the City," provides the title, storylines, and narration for each episode.
When the series premiered, the character was praised by critics for being a positive example of an independent woman in the vein of Mary Tyler Moore. However, retrospective analysis of the show tend to view the character much less sympathetically, instead viewing her as self-centered and narcissistic.
