Jessica Szohr Talks Deadly Accessories

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, News, Women, Accessories, Jewelry,

Jessica Szohr as Vanessa Abrams on Gossip GirlJessica Szohr thinks her Gossip Girl character would die if she didn’t wear accessories.

The brunette actress, who plays beauty Vanessa Abrams in the hit show, believes her on-screen persona’s penchant for extravagant jewelery is so severe she wouldn’t survive without wearing dramatic accessories.

“I actually don’t think Vanessa can breathe without eight necklaces or earrings! Vanessa is very funk’defied.”

As a consequence, Jessica likes to stick to a more basic wardrobe. “My style is much more simple. Because of this, I like to wear accessories to add a little sparkle to the outfit,” she said.

However, the 24-year-old actress admits she likes wearing statement rings and a quirky pair of sunglasses:

“You can never really go wrong with sunglasses. I always get myself a couple of pairs every year. One pair that I have had and have managed not to lose is an old vintage pair I found in Venice Beach, California. They also have to be a little bit funky and fun at the same time. But I don’t think people should wear sunglasses at night. I’m always wearing some kind of big ring, too.”


Blake Lively Dresses Like Her Gossip Girl

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, News, Rumors, Women,

Blake Lively shops like her Gossip Girl characterBlake Lively has a very similar dress sense to her character on Gossip Girl—is that surprising to anyone?

The actress, who plays socialite Serena van der Woodsen on the hit CW show, says she likes to wear the same outfits as alter-ego: “I dress just like Serena! I own half her wardrobe, so it’s far too similar to the way I dress.”

Blake, 22, is currently dating actor Penn Badgley, who plays Serena’s former boyfriend Dan Humphrey on the show.

Although she shares the same taste in men and clothes, Blake insists she and her character are not that similar: “I feel ridiculous at times with her - because I’m, you know, killing someone or marrying someone on Gossip Girl, but I look like me. I’m like, ‘Oh, this is absurd.’”

Her boyfriend, Badgley, has a rather awkward sense of women’s fashion—looks like Blake needs to school the fellow!

Penn Badgley and His Failed Halloween Costume

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Rumors,

Penn Badgley as Dan on Gossip GirlPenn Badgley once wore such a gruesome Halloween costume it made girls avoid him.

The Gossip Girl star, who plays hunky student Dan Humphrey in the teen drama series, says that his scary outfit was such a disaster because nobody wanted to talk to him.

“I was 14 years-old and went to Cinema Secrets, and I got a big old prosthetic scar and blood dripping from my face. It was the worst idea ever because it turned off literally every girl at the party… and I was 14, thinking I was so hot. It was terrible. It was the worst idea I ever had.”

Then again, this is that guy who recently revealed his fondness for an altogether different kind of look - he likes women in men’s clothes: “There is nothing more appealing than when members of the opposite sex look like they have made little effort with their clothes. I like it when they wear a plunging V-neck, which looks like she pulled it off the floor of a man’s bedroom.”

Gossip Girl Wardrobe Costs $19 Million

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, News, Rumors, Men, Women,

Gossip Girls Blake Lively and Leighton MeesterThe Gossip Girl wardrobe is worth an estimated $19 million.

The hit TV show, which follows a group of wealthy New York teenagers, is famed for its designer clothes, bags, jewelery, shoes and other accessories. Each episode of the series, which stars Leighton Meester and Blake Lively, features a string of exclusive outfits, which are stored in an impressive wardrobe spanning 1,500 sq ft and five floors.

Chace Crawford, who plays Nate Archibald on the show, said, “The girls disappear into that wardrobe for hours. They are like kids in a candy store! In fact, I always ask them not to schedule my fittings after Blake’s, because she always makes me late for my next scene. I tell them they have to get her enough Disneyland time.”

Costume designer Eric Daman has revealed it is a lengthy process trying to decide which pieces are featured on the show: “We average five to six looks per character—a total of 80 outfits per episode. And you have to go through 500 to get to that 80.”

Chace insists most of the wardrobe space is occupied by outfits for the leading female characters: “I have five pairs of shoes in a large box. They have clothes spread over five stories!”
