Gossip Girl starts tonight in the US and I’m so happy to be in New York to watch the season’s premiere, but unfortunately I will have to wait months to see the rest of the series back in the UK.

The picture above is the Season 3 Gossip Girl cast photo. The boys are looking very handsome especially Ed Westwick. The girls all look beautiful too.

In the picture Jessica Szohr wore an animal print dress.

Rock chick wannabee Taylor Momsen wore a strapless two tone sequin dress, whilst Leighton Meester wears a black embellished Elie Saab Fall 2009 dress.

Without meaning to be crude, the only person that really sticks out is Blake Lively.

The rest seem to fade into the background as Blake works the hell out of her palliette covered teal Versace dress.

Was it a coincidence that she is wearing a teal blue plunging dress and the rest are wearing darker colours?

The show airs tonight on CW @ 8pm/9pm central.
