It seems like just yesterday that news broke about Gossip Girl heading to Paris to shoot the first scenes of season four. But now, just two months later, we’ve seen the snaps from the trés glam shoot. All I can say is, more please!
Exhibit A: The gold sequin jacket and electric blue pants belonging to Serena (Blake Lively). Sure, the sharp shoulder craze may be over, but hot damn, I want it — shoulders jutting out and all!
Exhibit B: Serena and Blair (Leighton Meester) frolicking through the Parisian rue, the latter wearing a girly, print-happy Moschino dress, and the former donning a tomboy-cool Georges Chakra dress with a boyfriend blazer. Note to self: Find Serena’s hat and some macaroons.
Exhibit C: Lively beats the heat in pink wide leg pants and chunky jewelry. I don’t love the idea of bras being the new tank top, but those pants are incredible, so I’ll let it slide.
I think anything would’ve been a step up from the first glimpses we got last season, but GG, you’ve given a girl who fell off the boat with your show — thanks to last season’s over-the-top storylines — a reason to get (really) excited again. And it doesn’t hurt that Chuck (Ed Westwick) is also in Paris with new co-star Clémence Poésy of Harry Potter. The plot thickens!
What do you think of these first photos? Does it get you excited for more couture madness to come?
