Gossip Girl, you know you love us. Week after week we’re listening to the drama from HBO Max Gossip Girl restart, but we never expected to end up on the Upper East Siders radar. In the last episode, “Hope Sinks”, which also doubles as a Halloween episode, POPSUGAR receives a very special mention.
It all happens when Constance Billard’s students attend an extravagant Halloween party in costume. In an attempt to win the costume contest, Julien and Zoya plan the perfect sisters’ costume as they play Beyoncé and Solange at the 2014 Met Gala. However, their plans are quickly thwarted when they realize that two popular girls from a rival school, Pippa and Bianca, leaked their costumes in a bid to spotlight their own costumes as Blair Waldorf and Serena van der Woodsen. Let’s talk meta!
Trying to think quickly, Julien and Zoya decide to ditch their clothes and don Aki and Obie’s costumes to transform into Dan Humphrey and Chuck Bass. As Pippa and Bianca pose for the cameras, they sneak in with them at the last minute, lying to the press that they had planned the group’s outfit from the start. Although she knows that they will no longer win the contest, Luna is moved by the beauty of the moment. However, Monet is not so easily satisfied. “Cute don’t put you on the cover of Vogueshe says. “You’d be lucky if you were on POPSUGAR. “Well guess what, Monet? You are now on the cover of POPSUGAR! XOXO.
