All the Best Looks From the Gossip Girl Reboot We’ve Seen So Far

Take one look at the Gossip Girl reboot’s behind-the-scenes photos and two things will happen: You’ll forget about Leighton Meester as Blair Waldorf and Blake Lively as Serena van der Woodsen, and dream of having as much (maskless) fun as the cast seemingly has IRL. We won’t have to wait too much longer to join them: The first half of (controversially “woke”) season 1 finally premieres on July 8. It’s no surprise that the paparazzi have been keeping a vigilant eye on the Upper East Side in the meantime, seeing as HBO Max took its time to drop the first trailer. You’re better off heading behind the scenes for some clues—particularly via the characters’ wardrobes, which extend far past tartan school uniforms. Even if Jordan Alexander’s sheer Beyoncé reference ends up being for Halloween, her character Julien seems to be among the boldest. Like Audrey (Emily Alyn Lind), she isn’t afraid to go pantsless, just barely covering up with oversized button-downs. Both are also fond of “It” bags like JW Anderson’s cap purse, whereas Zoya (Whitney Peak) favors social justice-related totes. Tavi Gevinson’s Kate also dresses down: While the actor is only 25 IRL, her character seems to be a teacher. Stay up to date on who else is spotted, and in what, here.
