Leighton Meester carries Loewe in a “Gossip Girl” scene that I saw filming!
I’m always excited to write about Gossip Girl because it features what I think is unquestionably the best fashion (and by far the best handbags) on TV, but I’m extra excited to write this post because I actually saw this scene happening in person! I live on the Upper East Side, and I set out down Madison Avenue on Friday to shop for a winter coat in advance of what promised to be nasty weather on Saturday. When I was walking toward 77th Street, a production assistant stopped me and asked me to go back up and cross the street to use the opposite sidewalk because of filming. I asked her if it was Gossip Girl, she confirmed that it was, and I crossed the street so that I could come back down and get a better look.
Leighton Meester is quite petite, so I couldn’t see her very well with the crowd that had gathered, but I noticed that they were filming outside of bridal palace Vera Wang. What I didn’t see, though, was the lovely, amazing, beautiful red-orange Loewe Amazona Bag that looks so bold against Blair’s cream-colored coat. That’s a pop of color if I’ve ever seen one; if only my view of the bag had been better in person!
