What happens when two Carrie Bradshaws walk into the same room? Does it cause a rip in the space-time continuum, threatening life on Earth as we know it? Apparently the universe is safe for now: AnnaSophia Robb and Sarah Jessica Parker—both known for their portrayal of the iconic Carrie Bradshaw—met for the first time at the Cosmo 100 power lunch in New York City on December 9, to no ill effect. Whew! Candace Bushnell was also there to capture the momentous occasion:

Although Sarah Jessica Parker offered AnnaSophia Robb words of encouragement before she began filming “The Carrie Diaries,” the two women had never met in person. From the looks of it, they got along just fine.

AnnaSophia reportedly ran into another “Sex and the City” cast member at the Cosmo event—Cynthia Nixon. Apparently the actress, known for her role as Miranda Hobbes on the hit HBO series, didn’t know who AnnaSophia was and had never seen “The Carrie Diaries.”

"I was at the counter, and I went, 'Oh, hi, I'm on the Carrie Diaries show. I'm a big fan. It was just kind of one of those New York run-ins," AnnaSophia explained to Vanity Fair. “She had no idea. Which is the best part.”

Take a look at more behind-the-scenes photos from the set of “The Carrie Diaries” below.
