As if New York's Upper East Side wasn't a swish enough location for addictive TV series Gossip Girl to be filmed at, the American drama has upped its glam factor by choosing the romantic Parisian streets as backdrop to some special episodes. Arriving just in time for Couture Fashion Week, Blake Lively has already been spotted sitting front row, next to Anna Wintour, with rumours flying that the actress had been spotted modelling in the Paris Ritz Hotel, the very place the American editor-in-chief is staying.
The fleeting visit isn't about reality though - all eyes are on the characters' European wardrobes, with Serena flying the flag for St Tropez chic in floppy hats, wide legged pants and maxi dresses, whilst it's all about the prints for Blair Waldorf, be it cherry, floral, digital or all three. French actress Clemence Poesy - who makes a special cameo appearance - taught the girls a thing or two about Parisian dressing, however, when she stole the limelight by looking elegantly thrown together in a timeless beige trench with dishevelled hair.
