On the arm of Nate, Vanessa's social status — and screen time — has definitely increased on Gossip Girl . The onetime gal pal of Dan, Vanessa is now holding her own at places like the opera, in gorgeous formal confections. She also carries a pretty stylish cell phone, a silver LG eNV .
The original eNV is a great little phone, but it makes for interesting placement on Gossip Girl. That's because the original eNV, in orange, was Blair's cell phone in season one , and if you've been paying attention, you'd know that she upgraded to a maroon eNV2  for the second season.
The silver eNV that Vanessa carries is not even available on Verizon's website  anymore, so I wonder if this is an intentional characterization for Vanessa, who's treated as an inferior by Queen Bee Blair because of her Brooklyn status.
Is it just coincidence, then, that Blair has the same phone — just newer, and slightly better?
