Onscreen Blake Lively‘s Serena van der Woodsen and Leighton Meester‘s Blair Waldorf might outshine Jessica Szohr‘s Brooklyn-bred Vanessa Abrams with their Upper East Side haute couture, but that isn’t stopping Jessica from upping her fashion game off-screen. “I’m learning more and more about clothes and designers from being a part of Gossip Girl and living in New York,” the star tells Lucky in their April issue. “In fittings now, I’m like, ‘I love that Diane von Furstenberg skirt or this Rag & Bone jacket,’ whereas before, I wouldn’t have recognized those labels.” And for a girl who claims to just be getting into the label game, her collection of designers is growing at a rapid rate — thanks in part to her own character’s quirky fashions. “I see all these pieces that Vanessa wears and I’m like, ‘Wait, I’ve got to get that!'” Right now, her shopping list includes labels that any seasoned fashionista would covet. “Thakoon dresses fit me really well and always have the best patterns,” says Jessica. “I’ve been carrying a lot of Rebecca Minkoff bags lately — I think she’s good with embellishment.” But, the one label that Jessica can’t seem to get enough of is Marc Jacobs. “It’s happened to me so many times: I’ll pick something up off a rack and it will inevitably be Marc Jacobs.” Hear more about Jessica’s fashion and beauty must-haves in Lucky‘s April issue, on newsstands this week, or online at luckymag.comAndrea DeSimone

Jessica is a beautiful girl and I’m glad that she is becoming more familiar with fashion and growing into her own personal style. She has a lot of potential!!!
