Blake Lively and Leighton Meester look superbly happy in these pictures of the duo filming for Gossip Girl season 4 over in Paris, France. They were there on July 5th, dressed very much for their respective parts.

Leighton Meester and Blake Lively in Paris / PH:

Why does Blair think that to be Parisian and more free she should take her fanciest frock items and mismatch them? It’s possible this is just a dress based on the fabric texture¬† (in which case I would ask WHY did someone make it like this), but it could also be a halter top, bubble skirt, and belt in three contrasting and mismatched prints.

While Serena has opted for a summery fedora, Blair has a thinly woven beret. Two matching cuffs, a chain link patchwork purse, and black sandals complete her look. We usually prefer Blair’s outfits over anyone else’s, and while Leighton makes it look cute, this get-up is not all that attractive.

Gossip Girl is scheduled to return Monday, September 13th on The CW!
