Gossip Girl Channels "My Fair Lady"

Gossip Girl Channels

Gossip Girl stars Blake Lively (in Ralph Lauren) and Leighton Meester go back in time as they step out on-set in period costumes in New York City on Thursday.

Blake‘s costume looks way more chic and sophisticated than Leighton‘s. Poor Leighton looks like a ragged Mary Poppins!

UPDATE: It’s a My Fair Lady reference with a Eliza Dolittle pre (Blair) & post (Serena) make-over. Thanks to JJ readers Sascha, Caroline, Trace, Lenor, Claire and Catherine!

The second season of Gossip Girl starts off with a bang @ 8PM ET/PT on Monday, September 1. The season premiere of One Tree Hill follows.

  • caroline

  • leonor

    maybe a dream sequence

  • trace

    I think it’s like a My Fair Lady reference, kinda like how Blair had a few Breakfast at Tiffanys moments. I <3 Gossip Girl!!

  • leonor

    leighton is the eliza of the beginning of My fair lady

  • Claire

    looks like they’re doing ‘My Fair Lady’ – Eliza Dolittle pre (Blair) & post (Serena) make-over.

  • laura

    so true about josh being a genius

  • ally

    OK, now, enough is enough. Judging from GG’s ratings, about ten people and their cats actually watch this show.


  • Zen

    Blair must be daydreaming again..

  • shannon

    i agree with ally! and why is it that leighton who has the talent gets a fugly outfit while blake who is just so so gets somethig that would be seen on a runway i dont get it

  • Katherine

    definately my fair lady. it’s an audrey movie and blair loves audrey. probably/most definately one of her dream sequences

  • lilla

    definately my fair lady…leighton is Audrey’s character eliza at the beginning of the movie, and Blake’s costume looks like a revamped version of the gown Audrey wears post makeover, at the racetrack scene.

  • elljay

    looooooooove gossip girl

    thaaanks jj
    i loove you.

  • lilly

    Blake cannot be Aubrey… that role belongs to Leighton…. Blair looks cute even like that.

  • Halli

    This has to be a dream sequence. Blair is obsessed with Audrey Hepburn and she already had a Breakfast at Tiffany’s dream. Twice.

  • Vogue
  • K

    haha wow. My Fair Lady with a Blackberry in her hand. LMFAO.

    I bet this is a dream sequence. As Blair always has these old fashion dreams. And I bet it has something to do with Serena being better than Blair too. :P


  • K

    #16. There is more than 10 people watching Gossip Girl. Just looking at all the comments JustJared gets on his Gossip Girl posts shows it!

  • t

    Blake looks fab. Leighton looks like crap

  • Nick Lachey USA Fan

    Blair looks awesome!

  • pennylove

    I agree with #29. This looks like the sort of dream sequence Blair would have after a scene where she’s been really self-conscious. She always compares herself against Serena in those situations, and she’s seemingly oblivious to her own stunning figure.

    I can’t wait for Season 2! I live in the UK so I’m hoping someone will put it up on the internet after it airs.

  • like

    The only thing Blake can do is Show her big boobs… Leighton is a more serious actress

  • trish.

    First of all.

    It’s getting lots of buzz because it’s a briliant show.
    its entertainment. If kids watch this show and does what these kids are doing..they’re the Moron..NOT the show producers or actors.
    it’s what they HAVE TO DO.

    i love blake. she’s cute.

  • :]]]]]

    haha laura i was saying the same thing. poor blake, but leighton dressed like that still looks better. (: nothing against her though. theyre oth amazing just leightons amazing(er) lol jk. leightons more amazing;)

    &audrey hepburn!

  • S

    @ Laura – just your opinion, no need to be rude about it

    @ shannon- a lot of ppl think that blake is more talented but because that is just an objective bias just like you’re statment the fact – before gossip girl blake was the bigger star AND most importantly it’s SERENA AND BLAIR in these pics not BLAKE AND LEIGHTON and they storyline required it – and blake is just as talented as leighton if not more – think about you write.

    I must show my thanks to the writer just for bailing me out of this particular problem. Just after checking through the the net and meeting techniques which are not beneficial, I assumed my life was done. Living minus the answers to the problems you have solved by way of the guideline is a critical case, and the ones that would have adversely affected my entire career if I had not come across your web site. Your own personal ability and kindness in playing with all the details was vital. I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t encountered such a step like this. I can also at this point look forward to my future. Thanks a lot very much for the impressive and results-oriented help. I won’t think twice to endorse your web site to any person who should get assistance on this situation.
