Filming Begins on Gossip Girl!

The always-lovely Leighton Meester looked retro and ravishing in a lemon-printed dress while shooting the new season of Gossip Girl in New York Thursday.

With her was Roxane Mesquida, who was recently cast as Louis' sister.

It's been reported that the royal character played by the French actress and model will not be pleased with Blair and Louis' engagement. What she does about it remains to be seen.

We'll probably have to wait awhile for that, but it's being set up as one of the big story lines in season five (the arrival of Elizabeth Hurley's character is another).

On this very hot day in New York, we're just starting out ...

Leighton and Roxane

An early look at Blair and her newest nemesis.

We'll post more shots from the set as we come across them all summer!

She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
