Where do I even start? Paris is a welcome change of scenery from the somewhat stale New York Upper East Side routine. And unlike Sex and the City, Gossip Girl didn’t lose its magic with a bit of travel. The central focus of this show, I believe, is the relationship between Blair and Serena. Two girls that grew up together, much different from each other, though completely dependent on each other. Having them prance around Paris in chic outfits, armed with shopping bags and magically looking thinner than ever, even after gorging on French food and macaroons all summer…bitches! I guess Serena stayed in shape by screwing everything in sight (can’t blame the girl — it’s what i would have done, especially the ones wearing Zadig & Voltaire) while Blair must have worked up some good cardio wandering around Musée d’Orsay looking for love.

The Prince Louis/chauffeur storyline was really just a set-up for Blair and Serena to confess their true love to each other. Other than that, it was really silly from the very start. Prince Louis: “An American that loves Manet. It’s too good to be true.” Are you kidding? Everyone loves Manet! Hating Manet is like hating puppies. And then later he was all: “You loved my favorite painting. I thought that someone who loved what I loved would love me, too.” Sheesh. And then, after all of that, Blair didn’t even bother to do some simple research like, maybe, Google the famous Prince? C’mon: this whole show is based on interactive digital media and our characters can’t even use a search engine. And Gossip Girl? Shouldn’t she switch to Twitter by now? Kind of an old-fashioned gal, that one is.
Blair was lovely in her Prince-worthy Oscar de la Renta dress, but Serena’s wide-leg Sumo pants are so gorgeous that they might make me cry, because I think they are no longer available. Also, Serena’s Fendi “Peekaboo” has been on my wish list for the longest time. One day….
