A party. Yes, what else would start Gossip Girl? It’s fashion week, where we see lots of pretty people at parties and lots of pretty models walking down lots of pretty runways. We are at Eleanor Waldorf’s studio where she’s getting her models ready for her own show. Blair has been given the lucrative task of seating “who’s who” at her mother’s show. Blair loves all this power. Jenny and Dan talk about how invisible each other are at school now. Boo-hoo. Get over yourselves; life is much harder than this Gossip Girl backstabbing world. Dan asks Jenny why she isn’t in her French class and she lies and says her sub is always late. But, as you remember little J has been ditching school and heading over to help Eleanor Waldorf.
