In last night's episode of Gossip Girl, "Petty in Pink," we found out that Lily Bass Humphrey (Kelly Rutherford) got sentenced to house arrest instead of who-knows-how-many-years in the big house for sending an innocent man to prison. She'll spend the next nine months hiding her ankle monitor, but that means she gets to stock up on new long maxi dresses and wide leg slacks (always looking on the bright side).

An editor contacted Dan with an assignment to follow and slyly report on visiting Prince Louie Grimaldi. Turns out the French prince was actually Blair Waldorf's (Leighton Meester) fling from her summer spent in Paris. His majesty defied his parents to spend time with his American crush (Blair) in NYC. To ensure Louie was able to stick around, she staged a kiss with Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley) to trick the prince's handler into believing he isn't commingling with the commoner. OF COURSE, the scheme backfired. Charlie Rhodes (Kaylee DeFer) sent footage of the "kiss" to Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively) and Gossip Girl, who proceeded to send it to the entire Upper West Side.

Meanwhile, Raina Thorpe (Tika Sumpter) was on the hunt for her birth mother but didn't want to tell Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick), who was drowning his own misery in booze, straight-up Howard Hughes-style. At first, Chuck wanted to stop Raina from finding her mother, but then he had a change of heart.

And, what would an episode of Gossip Girl be without a high-fashion party scene? In this installment, it was the annual UWS Pink Party (Think: P. Diddy's white party...with petal, salmon, and honeysuckle hues). Check Blair's Oscar de la Renta strapless frock, and Serena's Marchesa mini. HOT.

Behind the backdrop of Eric Van Der Woodsen's (Connor Paolo) 18th birthday party, major drama goes down in "While You Weren't Sleeping," the 16th episode of Gossip Girl season four. Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) tries to "race to greatness" by spreading herself too thin. But in the end her plan to fast-track her career leaves her overly caffeinated and wearing two different (but equally cute!) embellished pumps to Eric's party. Despite her best efforts to do it ALL, Blair gets fired/quits W magazine. Meanwhile, Serena Van Der Woodsen (Blake Lively) is forced to choose sides between her fam and her new beau Ben Sharp (David Call), and Lily Humphrey (Kelly Rutherford) and Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) are in cahoots to get back Bass Industries. Oh, and Vanessa Abrams (Jessica Szohr) makes a return to Brooklyn/the Upper East Side to beg for forgiveness from Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley), who seems to be crushing hard on Blair. Check out all of our fave Upper East Siders' styles below.

New York Fall 2011 Fashion Week is in full swing (yay!), and we're hitting the tents and following the live streams to bring you the hottest trends, neat backstage beauty finds and the best-dressed front-rowers.

FASHION SHOW: STEVEN ALAN

• Designer Steven Alan made us want to be nerds (because, you know, we're not) with his fall collection of tweed blazers, scholarly topcoats and striped rompers.

• Whoever styled this show = layering genius.

• Check out the detailing on Alan's pieces—the side buttons on the romper, the fading on the striped leggings. We like. We like.

BEAUTY MOMENT: ALMOST-BLACK NAIL POLISH ON MODELS AT NICHOLAS K

• Just when we thought dark lacquer was outta here...

Pattie Yankee (a celeb manicurist for Dashing Diva with a cool name) created two custom colors for Nicholas K, a deep hunter green and brown with gold flecks polishes.

• P.S. The flatform boots that this model is wearing are killer!

FRONT ROW CELEB: KATRINA BOWDEN IN THE FRONT ROW AT BCBG MAX AZRIA

30 Rock's Katrina Bowden looked too cute at the BCBG Max Azria show, wearing a high-waist miniskirt, puff-sleeved top and black booties. And the pop of candy apple red on her nails is perfection.

• Is the girl sitting beside Katrina with the pretty pink lipstick Tika Sumpter (the actress who plays Raina Thorpe on Gossip Girl)?

Amid the weird UES return of Damien (the drug-dealing misfit who helped Jenny, um, ruin her life), Gossip Girl's 13th episode of season four, "Damien Darko," showed Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) looking fierce for her first few days as a fashion intern at W magazine. It didn't matter that her main duties included stapling, filing, and stuffing gift bags—Blair rocked a Valentino cardigan with pink short-shorts and patterned tights one day and a Bensoni print dress with DKNY tights on another day. But when Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley) "the sixth W intern" rained on Blair's parade, proving that he can indeed tell the difference between Marc Jacobs mustard pumps and Louis Vuitton lemon stilettos, the two butt heads. The bickering culminates at a W party where the two race to impress the higher-ups first, but they both wind up getting the ax after their boss catches them fighting on the floor (Blair in a slinky BCBG dress and Dan in a Theory suit). Classy. Meanwhile, Raina Thorpe (Tika Sumpter) of Thorpe Interprises, who can seriously work a Jay Godfrey shift, continues to sleep with the enemy, Chuck Bass, amid continuous company controversy. Double classy. Who do you think looked best?

The Upper East Siders are back from winter break—with their scheming antics, designer clothes, and all! Gossip Girl's 12th episode of season four, "The Kids Are Not Alright," premiered last night, centering around Blair Waldorf's (Leighton Meester) search for an internship (she finally realizes fashion editorial is her forte), and equally important, the fall/rise/fall of Bass industries. A former associate of Chuck's dad, businessman Russell Thorpe (Michael Boatman)—along with his well-dressed daughter/biz partner, Raina Thorpe (Tika Sumpter)—entered the picture, vowing to buy the flailing company. We have a feeling we'll be seeing a lot more of this duo. Meanwhile, Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) and Serena Van Der Woodsen (Blake Lively) join forces against Lily to make her pay for forging Serena's signature on an affidavit that wrongfully sent her ex-high school teacher to prison. Drama, drama, drama. But with it came some hot ensembles. We loved all of the winter toppers, like Serena' plaid Burberry coat and her belted Mike Gonzales overcoat. But our favorite look was newbie Raina Thorpe's ruched bandage dress. What do you think?

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