It’s been widely publicized that British actress Elizabeth Hurley will be joining the cast of ‘Gossip Girl’ for Season 5, but here at Red Carpet Fashion Awards we’re more excited about another new edition to the show.

Meet Roxane Mesquida.

The beautiful French actress and model is set to play Prince Louis’ sister, who comes to New York unhappy with her brother’s decision to marry Blair Waldorf.

Roxane was recently spotted on set with Leighton Meester wearing a v-neck Missoni dress which was styled with a grey Valentino embellished bag and nude Fendi platform heels.

In another scene she’s seen wearing a Valentino Red floral-print satin dress with comfortable flats in-between takes.

These looks prove that her character will not only be upping the drama on the show, but the style stakes too.

Off set it seems Roxane has a natural flair for fashion as she was photographed at the “Snow Flower And The Secret Fan” New York screening earlier this month wearing a chic green Diane von Furstenberg Leron dress, which she accessorized with patent red heels and a sleek black Diane von Furstenberg Tonda clutch.

It’s obvious that she is unafraid to experiment with her style as she paired this outfit with a bold red lip and wore her hair in a sophisticated bun. Roxane has that very nonchalant attitude towards her style, which we also see from the likes of Clemence Poesy and Melanie Thierry.

When Roxane attended the Dior Summer 2011 fashion show back in October, she showed off her edgier side in this Dior ensemble with a teased quiff.

We look forward to seeing Roxane’s character on ‘Gossip Girl’ in some amazing outfits as she tries to wreak havoc on the Upper East Side, but we’re also going to be paying close attention to what this naturally stylish actress wears on the red carpet too.

The fifth season of ‘Gossip Girl’ premieres Monday, September 27 at 8pm.
