We’re so excited for our fall shows to return that we can’t help but analyze (okay, over-analyze) every bit of new footage we can get our hands on. We scrutinized the seven seconds of “One Tree Hill” footage released until we were blue in the face, and now we’ve set our sights on the new “Gossip Girl” trailer below.
“Paris is burning and Serena and Blair lit the match,” Blair (Leighton Meester) quips. “Of course, your flame is hotter than mine.” Ooh-la-la indeed – we already know that Blair has found herself a suitor in France to distract her from love lost, but who is kindling Serena’s (Blake Lively) fire?
We also get a peek at that fountain cat fight we told you about last month. We’re still mourning for Serena’s outfit.
Out of everything in the trailer, though, one thing stuck out to us. No, it’s not the fact that Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) now walks with a cane. We’ve got more important things on our minds – like what the Chuck is he wearing!? One moment he’s in a vest and shirt that make him look like one of those French waiters Serena is so fond of riding on vespas with, and the next moment he’s in a boring polo shirt – not a pocket square or cufflink in sight.
We knew he was going to lose his famous moniker, but we didn’t expect him to lose his Lacoste loafers. This is a man who once wore a $4,000 bathrobe.
It’s a job for “Project Runway” guru Tim Gunn. Luckily, EW reports that Gunn will be making a guest appearance on “Gossip Girl” in late October. No news yet on just what his business will be with the Upper East Siders, but we’ve got our fingers crossed that Gunn tells Blair to edit her look. Sparks will fly!
