Blake Lively Brightens Up a Chilly Day on the Gossip Girl Set

Blake Lively on the set of Gossip Girl in NYC.

Blake Lively was back to work taping Gossip Girl today in NYC. She was spotted on the set carrying a bright Emily Cho clutch and donning a colorblocked trench coat with pink pumps. Blake took advantage of a recent hiatus in production to spend some time with Ryan Reynolds in LA, but her work schedule has picked up again with GG returning to the CW's airwaves shortly.

Beyond her small-screen obligations as Serena van der Woodsen, she also has a new big-screen project hitting theaters in early April. The movie, Hick, also stars Chloe Moretz and My Week With Marilyn's Eddie Redmayne. Blake's been known to gravitate toward some gritty film roles, including her part in The Town opposite Ben Affleck, and it sounds as though Hick will offer her the chance to explore her darker side again — her character is described as a tough, drug-addicted Vegas girl. Check out our first look at the Hick poster.
