Gossip Girl reboot films throughout NYC
Spotted: the cast of HBO’s Gossip Girl, out and about in New York City. Last week saw main cast members Eli Brown and Whitney Peak filming on Broadway, according to OK. This weekend, more paparazzi photos of the stylish crew were unveiled while they filmed in the East Village. Fans like Fashionista.com EIC Tyler McCall were quick to point out their fashion-forward outfits (already the show’s hook for most of the editorial world), like Savannah Smith’s houndstooth cardigan-and-bra set with a Roger Vivier “Miss Vivier” bag, or Thomas Doherty’s Harry Styles-esque yellow and blue striped suit. We’re prepping for many fashionable moments from this new set of Manhattanites, and with no known date for when the show will hit TVs, hopefully we’ll get some more advanced sneak peeks when they film around the city!
Hello and welcome to “please inject this straight into my veins,” the series where I look at the costumes from Gossip Girl 2.0 and scream, you guessed it, “PLEASE INJECT THIS STRAIGHT INTO MY VEINS” pic.twitter.com/NZQeJWP7SP
