AnnaSophia Robb: I’ve got into fashion.
AnnaSophia Robb “cares more about fashion” since she landed the role of a young Carrie Bradshaw.
The actress portrays fashionista Carrie Bradshaw in the TV series, which is based on the Sex and the City character’s younger days.
The 19-year-old says hanging around the wardrobe area on set has proved fruitful for spicing up her own style.”I’ve started to care a little more about fashion,” AnnaSophia admitted to Us Weekly. “I’m starting to wear a lot more tights now. Carrie wears a lot of tights… and I’m starting to wear more patterns. Carrie doesn’t really have a specific colour – it’s more layering of different patterns and textures and eras together.”
AnnaSophia described her personal style as being more like conservative dresser Miranda from the Sex and the City series.The pretty blonde does mirror Carrie’s eclectic fashion tastes when the occasion requires something special.
“It kinda depends on the day – on how much energy I have to put into it,” she explained. “On New Year’s I wore a big poufy white skirt, which is very Carrie… but most of the time I just like wearing stuff that’s comfortable: boots and patterned jeans and big, comfy sweaters.”
AnnaSophia recently admitted the role has also had an effect on her hair. She permed her locks to portray the character and loves having wild tresses.
“I love the curly hair,” she gushed last month. “Jen [Johnson, hair stylist] does my hair on the show and I was like, ‘Ooh that’s a good look for next season.’”
My husband has signed up to online dating sites.
I’VE only been married two years and I’ve discovered my husband has registered himself on online dating websites.
I am 38 and live in South Africa. My husband is 43. When I confronted him about it he said that he didn’t think we would make it through our first year of marriage and that’s why he went looking for someone else.
This is his second marriage and apparently he pulled these stunts with his first wife as well.
Friends warned me about him and now I’m wondering if they were right. He has children from his first marriage and had the snip before we met. I desperately want kids but he won’t have it reversed.
I own everything in our marriage – the house, the car. Is he just using me as a meal ticket? Seeing that stuff on his phone was the last straw for me.
Your needs and feelings certainly seem to come low down on his list of priorities but breaking up with him doesn’t mean that Mr Perfect wanting marriage and children will necessarily turn up soon.
It’s not long since you two thought you loved one another enough to get married, so give it one more shot.
Tell your husband you are thinking of ending your marriage and that he needs to make some major changes if you two are to stay together – come off the dating websites and be open about his internet use, and at least talk to you about having the baby you long for.
If he’s not prepared to make a serious effort for your sake, or you feel talking gets you nowhere, arrange to see a relationship counsellor.
In Washington, voters would be asked if they want to approve or reject a law passed by the Legislature and governor. This law is described so there’s no hiding the fact it legalizes gay marriage. It also spells out how religious leaders don’t have to condone or conduct marriages of same-sex couples.
The ballot language doesn’t specifically say the law changes the state’s definition of marriage though Plante said that’s what it does and that’s what voters need to be told.
Marriage goes from being a civil contract between a man and a woman to a civil contract between any two people, he said.
“We have our work cut out for us,” he said. “We’re confident people of Washington will understand by election time that R-74 is about the definition of marriage.”
Wolfson is quick to rebut that argument.
“This is not about defining marriage. This is about ending an exclusion from marriage for gay couples,” he said. “Marriage is still going to be marriage just more people are going to be able to do it.”
