ZOMG, you guys, Gossip Girl was INTENSE last night; in fact, we're still hyperventilating over it! It all started off so serenely with Serena (Blake Lively) and Dan (Penn Badgley) having brunch with the parentals, who were trying to get these two crazy former lovebirds to forgive one another and be friends again. Besides, what better time than now while the Rhodes/Van Der Woodsen/Humphrey family prepares to debut faux niece Charlie (aka Ivy) (Kaylee DeFer) to New York society? Charlie/Ivy's still trying to avoid her ex-boyfriend, Max (Brian J. Smith), who refuses to stop his crusade to expose her for the fraud she is to the new family she wants to be a part of forever. Even though she thinks she has everything in control, Max has a new plan of attack.

In Alternate Story Line Land, Blair (Leighton Meester) can't decide between the father of her baby, Prince Louis (Hugo Becker), and the fire of her heart, Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick). She runs away to Brooklyn to shack up in the safe arms of Dan, who wants to tell her that he's secretly in love with her but can't seem to get the words out. Oh, and Nate (Chace Crawford) is still battling his grandfather for the right to own his own life. Did we forget to mention there's a giant car chase and cliffhanging CRASH that leaves two of our faves in critical condition? If you haven't caught up yet, we would hate to spoil the rest for you. Until next time, check back here weekly for our fashion recap!

There's nothing like the glitteringly ideal-looking beauties of Gossip Girl to snap you out of your tryptophan-induced hibernation status and send you barreling full speed ahead for the gym. The Upper East Side's PYTs turned up the volume on this post-Thanksgiving episode with a STUDIO 54 PARTY (I know, MAY-JOR) that excused sparkly eye shadows, miles of lamé, and an industrial amount of disco-worthy hair spray. Before all the mirror ball festivities could kick off, though, quite a grip of drama unfolded. As it does.

With Prince Louis (Hugo Becker) away (again) and having left such a sour taste with Blair (Leighton Meester) the night of her bridal shower, B was free to pester Chuck (Ed Westwick) for the secret to his newfound "goodness," including an escorted trip to Chuck's therapist. Nate (Chace Crawford) is kept busy captaining The Spectator as editor in chief, while Dan (Penn Badgley) becomes consumed with defending against anonymous Humphrey dissenters in online book forums. The New York appearance of Charlie's (aka Ivy's) (Kaylee DeFer) ex-boyfriend Max (Brian J. Smith) and his recent pursuit of a relationship with Serena (Blake Lively) makes for a LOT of serious intrafamilial DRAMZ, but it's SO juicy, if you haven't caught up yet, we would hate to spoil the rest for you. Until next time, check back here weekly for our fashion recap!

Whew, there's finally some major momentum over in Gossip Girl Land (aka Manhattan's Upper East Side). This week's episode centered around Blair's (Leighton Meester) bridal shower thrown by her BFF and Made of Honor, Serena (Blake Lively), of course. S and all of B's minions tried to throw the soon-to-be royal bride off the control trail and tricked her into thinking the shower was "casual" and would involve things like shaved Hawaiian ice (still can't believe they fooled her with that). Dan (Penn Badgley) wasn't invited to the shower shindig, so he went to Chuck (Ed Westwick)—who also wasn't invited—for help in toughening up his Lonely Boy image. Instead, Dan ends up getting his drink on and running off to Blair's shower. Meanwhile, Diana (Elizabeth Hurley) schemed with Nate's (Chace Crawford) grandfather who, it turns out, owns the Spectator website, and has given her three days to steal Gossip Girl's traffic or she'll be out of a job. Nate finds all of GG's sources and gives them to Diana and Serena, but both decide not to leak the information.

Who does leak the info? Oh, just Blair's lame-o fiancé, Prince Boring Louis (Hugo Becker), who keeps trying to prove to Blair that her friends do not have her best interests at heart. Poor Blair finds out the hard way in the middle of her Tiffany-themed shower (not a piece of melting shaved ice in the place), and she tells her Prince to beat it while she figures things out. Oh, and over in secret identity story lines, Charlie (aka Ivy) (Kaylee DeFer) tries to buy off her sketchy ex who decides to blackmail her instead. But what about Blair and CHUCK? If you haven't caught up yet, we won't spoil the rest for you. Check back here weekly for our fashion recap!

Last night's Gossip Girl was somewhat of a transitionary episode, but nonetheless brimming with juicy dramz. Kicking things off with Serena's (Blake Lively) new gig working at the Spectator for Diana (Elizabeth Hurley) who wants Serena to start a blog to rival GG herself (sidenote: is it just me or is there a weird "gotta catch 'em all" feel to Diana's Spectator staffing?). Diana nabbed Serena after her former job with Jane (Michael Michele) fell through when she halted production on the film version of Dan's (Penn Badgley) book. Dan's supposed to be out on a book tour but has apparently been missing meet and greets. Maybe dropping off the bestseller list hurt his pride?

Charlie (aka Ivy) (Kaylee DeFer) has gotten herself wrapped up in a cougar love triangle with Diana and Nate (Chace Crawford) which, with the sudden reappearance of Ivy's ex-boyfriend Max, can only lead to major trouble for her secret double life. Prince Louis (Hugo Becker) is away on business, and with his recent slip to the dark and scheming, and Chuck's (Ed Westwick) public turning of a new leaf, Blair (Leighton Meester) is *cough* once again *cough* conflicted about her choice (though she'd never admit that). Blair plans to reveal that the real Chuck Bass still exists deep down. Just about everything comes to a head at Chuck's masked masquerade party slash play, but if you haven't caught up, we won't spoil the rest for you. Check back here weekly for our fashion recap!

Gossip Girl may have skipped a week last Tuesday, but we pick back up right where we left off, and the short break may have been wise because this episode was a DOOZY. Dan (Penn Badgley) is pumped up about the whirlwind success of Inside from secret publication to anonymous author reveal, script optioning, and NOW he's a top 10 bestseller. Serena (Blake Lively) and her boss Jane (Michael Michele) bring Dan in to discuss the paper-to-film transition, but the meeting turns sour as Jane tries to Glee it up and basically turn the story into Newsies. Blair (Leighton Meester), with her wedding day fast approaching, takes to the scheme board "one last time" for an elaborate bridesmaids gauntlet among select minions throughout the years and the tournament's dark horse, Charlie (aka Ivy) (Kaylee DeFer). Chuck (Ed Westwick) is seeing a therapist who has been paid off by Prince Louis (Hugo Becker) to "light his fuse" in hopes that Blair will be reminded of Chuck's monstrous side and never go back to him *cough*goodluckdude*cough*. Nate (Chace Crawford) gets huffy about his boss Diana (Elizabeth Hurley) and her unwillingness to come forward with Nate as a couple, and it aaaaall comes to a head at...you guessed it! A PARTY! It's a big episode for longtime fans, so in case you haven't caught up yet, we won't spoil the rest, but check back here weekly for our fashion recap!

Selena Gomez gets a retro makeover for "Wizards of Waverly Place."
Photo: Disney Channel

It may not be Halloween anymore, but that's not stopping Selena Gomez from costuming up. For this week's episode of Wizards of Waverly Place, Selena gets retro-tastic '50s AND '70s makeovers. For the nifty fifties look, rather than a simple poodle-skirted Sandra Dee à la Grease, the Wizards makeup and wardrobing departments went all out for the time-travelling ep, which airs this Friday. Selena wears a canary yellow all-over floral printed dress with a FULL A-line skirt sitting below the knee and a natural waistline. The frock's short-sleeve bateau neck bodice would be unforgiving on most, but as we've come to know, Selena is blossoming into quite the fashion plate goddess, with an uncanny ability (some might say a gift) to rock just about anything. Sel is accessorized with a classy string of pearls plus a bracelet, single post earrings, and tiny yellow bows placed throughout her bouffant ponytail 'do.

We are totally ENGROSSED in this season of Gossip Girl and feel as though things are about to KICK OFF uptown. Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley) has become an overnight literary sensation as a result of his book, Inside, which is "loosely based" on all of his friends and family who, incidentally, refuse to talk to him anymore, giving literal meaning to the nickname Lonely Boy. Serena Van Der Woodsen (Blake Lively) tries to secure the film rights to the book but does so at Dan's expense even though he was, supposedly, "the love of [her] life." Preggo Blair Waldorf's (Leighton Meester) who-is-the-father royal (pain) predicament, has her soon-to-be sister in law, Beatrice Grimaldi (Roxanne Mesquida) stirring up all kinds of trouble during Yom Kippur. For instance, she and her mother, Princess Sophie Grimaldi (Joanne Whalley) of Monaco, try to get Blair to sign an agreement that will, basically, give them total control over Blair's life and that of her unborn child. Who helped dream up this dastardly scheme? Oh, just "journalist" (i.e. total gossip monger and cougar extraordinaire), Diana Payne (Elizabeth Hurley), who seems to be spreading her vicious Upper East Side takedown agenda like nobody's biz. She gets Ivy, aka "Charlie Rhodes" (Kaylee DeFer), to break into the sacred Van Der Woodsen safe, which she does with the help of (GASP!) Nate (Chace Crawford). Oh, and Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick)? He meets a pretty psychologist who cracks the code to his troubled brain. In case you haven't caught up yet, we won't spoil the rest, but check back here weekly for our fashion recap!

Hi there, folks, it's Gossip Girl time here, your one and only source into the fashionable TV lives of Manhattan aesthetes. We left off last week in a frenzy of new plotlines and character developments. Lonely Boy Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley) wrote an anonymous book that's no longer anonymous; in fact, it has his name on it and he's set to make his literary debut! Problem is, he must tell his friends and family they were the subjects of his tell-all memoir (we mean novel). Even though everyone's worried what his former flame, the "leggy blonde Sabrina"—er‚ Serena Van Der Woodsen (Blake Lively) is going to think, it's actually his longtime arch nemesis and sometime kissing buddy Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) he's more worried about. Blair, who is still preggers but mumsies about who the real father is, even though she insists it's her straight-laced fiancé, Prince Louis, has a run-in with Chuck (Ed Westwick) that causes his dog to tangle her up in an embrace just in time for somebody to shoot a camera phone pic. Meanwhile, in Cougarville, Nate (Chace Crawford) is still making his boss, Diana Payne (Elizabeth Hurley), purr for gossip while Diana figures out the identity of Ivy, aka "Charlie" (Kaylee DeFer) and starts to blackmail her. As predicted, Lonely Boy's book makes everyone really mad, and he is left alone at his own party. In case you haven't caught up yet, we won't spoil the rest, but check back here weekly for our fashion recap!

Emma Watson and Logan Lerman on "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" set.
Photo: Courtesy of Summit Entertainment

Miss Emma Watson is starring in the upcoming film The Perks of Being a Wallflower, based on the beloved emo-tortured teen novel, and the first official photos have arrived! Co-starring super cute Logan Lerman and Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev, the film centers around an awkward teen in Pittsburgh in the early 1990s. Emma plays the love interest (obvs, duh, she's a Midnight Rose isn't she?), and judging by the on-set photos, her wardrobe is anything but wallflower-y. In fact, it's very '90s high school in the coolest way.



Just when we think we know which direction Gossip Girl is heading, that idling Upper East Side limo makes a U-turn. There are so many soul-punching shenanigans going on in the latest episode that we barely know where to begin. As you know from last week, Mr. Chuck (Ed Westwick) can't seem to feel any emotion anymore, so Lonely Boy Dan (Penn Badgley) gets all Humphrey on his cashmere adorned assets and surprises him with an impossibly cute pet dog. Dan has become Blair Waldorf's (Leighton Meester) pet dog, and even though he keeps trying to get her to open an envelope that reveals the father of her baby, she refuses but only for awhile. (GASP! Relax, no spoiler alert here.) Nate (Chace Crawford) starts his new internship with his cougar boss Diana Payne (Elizabeth Hurley), and she begins to reveal her true purpose regarding Manhattan's elite. Oh, and where's Serena (Blake Lively), you ask? Miss Van Der Woodsen is all about making her "cousin" Charlie (Kaylee DeFer) feel right at home, and lucky for her, "Charlie" (aka Ivy) has no intention of going anywhere. But if social-climbing Ivy isn't careful, we have a feeling she'll be skating on thin ice all winter. In case you haven't caught up yet, we won't spoil the rest, but check back here weekly for our fashion recap!

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
