Blake and Penn, Ed and Jessica: Gossip Girl couples heat-up off-screen
Gossip Girl may have wrapped filming for a second season, but its off-screen romances are still going strong.
In the hit show’s first art-imitating-life coupling, GG’s original on-screen and off-screen lovers, Blake Lively and Penn Badgley were the guests of honour at the grand opening of the W hotel in Florida.
In a look that would have made Serenea Van Der Woodsen proud, the actress was white hot in a Christian Cota ruched gown and strappy blue heels. Her trademark wavy blonde mane was picture-perfect as ever.
Her beau meanwhile debuted a slightly more dishevelled look, showing off a new slightly straggly beard.
In another GG sighting, Ed Westwick and Jessica Szohr looked seriously loved-up, as they were papped leaving a lunch date in LA. The ever-stylish Szohr looked uber-chic in a two-tone slouchy jumpsuit, dusky pink blazer and black sandals.
As for accessories, and the actress appeared to have picked up some style tips from her on-screen nemesis, Blair Waldorf. She sported Queen B’s favourite fashion fix: an embellished headband.
Meanwhile, like Blake, her beau was having something of a hairy moment, not only showing off a smattering of stubble, but flashing a hint of chest hair as well. Could the Gossip boys be rebelling against their school-boy clean-cut alter-egos?!
