The New Gossip Girl Cast Is Announced (Elle)
HBO Max has announced part of the cast of its upcoming Gossip Girl reboot. Emily Alyn Lind will play Audrey, who “has been in a long term relationship and is beginning to wonder what more could be out there.” Whitney Peak and Eli Brown will join her as the series’ leads, while Johnathan Fernandez and Jason Gotay are also part of the “core ensemble.” Their character details have yet to be revealed.
The new Gossip Girl will not be a reboot in the traditional sense. It will instead follow a new group of affluent young people — although it will take place in the same “universe” as the original, even referencing old characters. At the moment, Kristen Bell, the voice of Gossip Girl, is the only OG cast member scheduled to return.

Alexander McQueen Celebrates Wales With Subtle References
The Fall 2020 collection for Alexander McQueen was considerably pared-down in opulence, compared to what has been shown in previous seasons. But that doesn’t mean is was wanting in terms of elegance and luxury. Creative director Sarah Burton’s vision for the brand has increasingly depended on solid tailoring, craftsmanship, and heritage. “The collection is a love letter to women and to families, colleagues and friends,” she explained in her show notes. “We went to Wales and were inspired by the warmth of its artistic and poetic heritage, by its folklore and the soul of its craft.”
