I don’t watch TV. Not because I wouldn’t, normally, but mostly because I have no time to do so. Instead, I keep up with everything using that wonderful tool called Internet.
Every now and then I get swept off by some smashing TV hit (24h, Prison Break, Heroes, The Office) but that’s about it. So, naturally, Gossip Girl frenzy is slightly beyond my understanding. We have a family friend who’d completely stuck on Gossip Girl, but not us. No-oh!
I had to use Youtube to get my Gossip Girl slice? If anything like that falls in the hands of a regular GG fan, I must look overdosed with ignorance.
But Vogue And Page Six Magazine, both highly respectable publications decided to make my Gossip culture. I can understand Page Six, it’s gossip-ish after all. But Vogue? (more after the jump)
While young Taylor Momsen covers Page Six Magazine being 15 years old and talking about fashion (and other things), Blake Lively covers Vogue February. While browsing scenes with Blake Lively as Serena from Gossip Girl, I couldn’t understand why and how she got this amazing Vogue cover. Normally I could protest about not seeing a model on a fashion magazine cover. Now it seems I should be happy with a worthy actress or famous face.
As far as the explanation for giving Blake a Vogue cover (coming from Vogue’s spokesman, Patrick O’Connell), I’ll just leave it for you to comment:
“She’s the girl of the moment who also has a hit show that people watch as much for the fashion as for the show itself.”
