Spotted: Celebrity Fashion Designers on Gossip Girl!
Tory Burch and Georgina Chapman were seen filming cameos this week for the upcoming season of Gossip Girl, according to a report in Women's Wear Daily.
The designers made their way to Silvercup Studios in Long Island City, N.Y., where they shot separate scenes for an episode that will air Monday, October 5.
While reps for the hit series are keeping their lips sealed about how Burch and Chapman figure into the Gossip Girl plot in this particular episode, they did say that part of the CW series will take place on a set made to look like Tory Burch’s office.
Although both designers frequently run into socially active cast members Blake Lively, Taylor Momsen, Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick on the New York party circuit, they seemed to enjoy working with the stars in an official capacity.
Gossip Girl star Blake Lively and designer Tory Burch.
“I am a huge fan [of Gossip Girl],” said Chapman, who has appeared in The Nanny Diaries and Factory Girl. Still, the Marchesa designer admitted, “I was very nervous.”
This isn’t the first time Gossip Girl has tapped real-life members of the fashion flock. Nacho Figueras shot scenes in Greenwich earlier this summer for the show’s September 14 season premiere, and Tinsley Mortimer had a guest spot last year.
