Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester, who recently expressed interest in starting her own clothing line, already has one customer waiting in the wings: New costar Katie Cassidy! “I’d buy it,” the actress told PEOPLE at W magazine’s September issue celebration at N.Y.C.’s Saks Fifth Avenue on Tuesday. “She has really good taste. I think she‘d be a great designer.” In the meantime, Cassidy will continue to admire her castmate’s killer wardrobe, telling PEOPLE, “I’ve seen her closet. It’s pretty amazing! She has some really good clothing.” Since joining television’s most stylish cast, the former Melrose Place star has begun to develop some major fashion cred of her own, sitting front row at Diane von Furstenberg and Jason Wu alongside style stars like Sarah Jessica Parker and Diane Kruger during New York Fashion Week. And it’s paying off: Gossip Girl’s newest starlet shone in at the Saks event in a gold Diane von Furstenberg shift dress with an Alice + Olivia cardigan, and credited the CW hit for its fashion influence. “I’m learning about fashion and I find myself knowing more about what I should wear. The whole show is very chic and the clothes are unbelievably beautiful. It’s like a girl’s playground.” –Tiffany Hopkins

We absolutely love your blog and find a lot of your post’s to be what precisely I’m looking for. can you offer guest writers to write content available for you? I wouldn’t mind creating a post or elaborating on a lot of the subjects you write in relation to here. Again, awesome weblog!

I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I came across this during my search for something concerning this.
