The cast of Gossip Girl is pretty familiar with high fashion, but it looks like this season is going to be especially chic. There were already reports circulating saying that fashion industry giants Karl Lagerfeld and Vogue editors Hamish Bowles and Lauren Santo Domingo would appear on the show, and now it looks like celebrity stylist (and Styleite‘s fave) Rachel Zoe is going to be on the show, too.
Zoe is, of course, in New York for Fashion Week. Our editor-in-chief Verena ran into Zoe and husband Rodger Berman at the opening of the Chanel store in SoHo last week. And somewhere in between all of the shows and parties she’s no doubt invited to, she found time to schlep to Queens to tape a few lines.
The stylist is starring as herself in an episode whose story line centers around plans for Blair Waldorf’s 20th birthday party, a source told The New York Daily News. And even though she’s a stylist herself, she agreed to let the show’s wardrobe department dress her.
“Rachel plays herself in the scene and has a handful of lines to remember,” the insider said, adding that designer Cynthia Rowley and Elle magazine’s creative director, Joe Zee, will also make guests appearances in the same episode.
But the rag trade cameos don’t stop there — we reported in July that the show would devote two episodes to Fashion’s Night Out, and there’s not telling how many more fashion people could be on those shows, or on any of the other episodes that we’ll see this season.
