We're finally only days away from the return of our beloved Gossip Girl — between the rumors of new on-set hookups and the racy ad campaign, we can hardly contain our excitement. To celebrate, Blake Lively and Leighton Meester posed together in all sorts of colorful and fabulous outfits for the May cover of Nylon Magazine. Here are some highlights from their interview:
- Blake on how she got her fashion sense: “My sister Robin was an actress, so she was always wearing wardrobe and certain things for events . . . my mom used to go to Urban Outfitters and get me vintage looking pieces, like tweed dresses and these argyle leggings and tops and she would just sew them up to fit me. So in school . . . the other kids would make fun of the way I dressed because it was so funky and outlandish, and not like anyone else . . . "
- Leighton on GG style: “Serena is more thrown together and effortless and doesn’t really care, and is just like, has this sexiness to her without trying, and Blair is really uptight and conservative and put together and everything has to be perfect, you know Chuck is kind of cocky and he’s just like, I don’t know, a prick."
- Blake on almost turning down the show: “[I thought] if there are pet monkeys wearing coordinating outfits, that’s not something I’m going to want to be a part of . . . "
Well, this isn't the first time Blake has talked about her aversion to monkeys, but we're all glad the producers choose her over Chuck's pet from the books. Check out the full article when the magazine hits stands and more pics from the shoot here. Now, how many more days until Monday?
