AnnaSophia Robb dispensed with the usual trappings of famous actresses and went makeup-free whilst out and about in New York this Wednesday.
The 23-year-old was spotted enjoying a walk in the Greenwich Village area of Manhattan, a male friend at her side.
She’d slipped into a pair of faded sky blue jeans that draped about her svelte legs as she hoofed her way up the pavement.

Her brown-streaked blonde hair fell free into the hood of her voluminous black anorak, which fell to her knees and was cinched about her slender waist.
A bright red jumper clashed elegantly against her jeans, and a brown-strapped black handbag dangled from her right shoulder.
Meanwhile, her friend had wound a pale brown scarf over a pearl grey jumper and fossil grey knee-length overcoat, which matched charcoal jeans and black boots.

Sunday last, the Because Of Winn-Dixie star’s latest television programme, the PBS drama Mercy Street, premiered its second series.
Set during the American Civil War, the show features Robb in a supporting role as Alice Green, a strident Confederate extremist.
Robb’s told PBS that the new series will ‘see Alice enter into the darker side of the Confederacy. It’s a world where she’s very excited and very passionate, and driven to be part of something bigger than herself, and to make a difference.’

Said she: ‘Women at this time did not have a lot of agency, and even though it may not be for good reasons, Alice sees herself as helping the young men and helping her country and her South.’
In the new episodes, ‘She is exposed to the horrors of war and lying to her family, and she is constantly trying to find reasons for why she makes the decisions she does, and I think it becomes harder and harder for her to justify her actions.’
Mercy Street stars such names as McKinley Belcher III, Norbert Leo Butz, Suzanne Bertish, Jack Falahee and – playing Alice’s sister Emma – Hannah James.
