It’s never a surprise when designers use Gossip Girl as inspiration. After all, Serena and Blaire have become fashion icons in their own right. But sometimes we’re left wondering when the higher end designers get involved — ahem, Matthew Williamson. It’s one thing to offer up clothing to the cast, and quite another to be written into the script.
Gossip Girl will have two episodes next season focused around Anna Wintour‘s Fashion’s Night Out event, and for good reason. Last year’s evening consisted of the fashion elite of New York traipsing around Manhattan’s boutiques at all hours of the night shopping, dancing, and drinking — three things the cast of Gossip Girl does frequently.
But Vogue is becoming a little more involved with the Gossip Girl madness than you may think. Hamish Bowles and Lauren Santo Domingo — two prominent Vogue editors — will be making cameo appearances in the episodes.
Do we applaud Vogue for embracing the show’s success? For getting off of their pedestal and having a little fun? Or do we go with our gut and sit back and think, sad is the day that Vogue needs to make appearances on a teen soap opera?
