Did you get the text? “Gossip Girl” is fulfilling more than a few girls’ dreams by launching a “Gossip Girl” clothing line. The show is partnering with Romeo & Juliet Couture to produce an exclusive line inspired by slutty-ish Serena and buttoned-up Blair. Of course, this isn’t the first time the gals of GG have been immortalized in fashion; back in 2009, Anna Sui did a diffusion line for Target that riffed on S and B’s looks, but this will be the first official collaboration. The line debuts September 26 and ranges in price from $80 to $200. Sadly, none of Chuck’s fabulous cravats will be included. [WWD] Keep reading »

Saying that last night’s episode of Gossip Girl was drama-filled is like declaring that shoes will get wet when it rains. Duh. Along with the Serena/Blair pregnancy scare and Nate and Chuck duking it out, there was the somewhat less climactic storyline in which Dan says, “I love you” to Serena. The first time he says it is when he wants to show support in case she’s carrying a little Dan. But he really means it and wants her to know that it isn’t solely because of this. He spends the rest of the episode trying to tell her again.
The interesting part of this story is not that they exchange those three words, but that they do it after they have sex! Maybe things have changed since we were in high school, but back then, couples “went out” for months and months, said “I love you,” and then did the deed. Of course the order may have changed once college and the real world arrived, but high school sex is supposed to be a little more innocent. Maybe wearing Chanel and being driven around in a Town Car really do make you grow up faster. [The CW] Keep reading »
