It’s very seldom that you find someone on television that is worth idolizing. Most of the stars in Philippine TV is all about vengeance and torn families, and love affairs gone wrong, so my thanks go out to Entertainment Channel of Solar Television Production, for introducing (drum roll please) Gossip Girl.
I think when they first made this show, they immediately coined Serena as the it-girl. The one whose hair catches the light. The one whose smile can brighten up a whole room. The rebel. The hobo blonde. The one out to find and fight for the truth. But she’s the tacky heroine. She’s the kind of heroine that um, sleeps around. And if the heroine is that hard to like, you go to the supposed-to-be-best thing: the frenemy of the heroine.
Now, don’t get me wrong: Serena is the reason why Gossip Girl is all the drama. But the style, the fashion and the witty one-liners all came from one character: Blair Waldorf. Plus, her outfits are never on the verge of outrageous and outdated. She’s right on the money. A little play on the colors and a 20-year-old can wear it. Mute the tones and go with the flesh, a 30-year-old can pull it off (with a heathy dose of confidence of course). I think I dare say that she is the SJP of this generation. The risque. The brave. The maldita. The antithesis.
Plus, who wouldn’t fall for that cute face? Well… I wouldn’t but that character is hard not to love. :)
Haven’t you heard? I’m the crazy bitch around here.
Dorota, don’t ever go to high school.
I know women. And none of us are that nice.
