It’s hard to imagine anything Gossip Girl coming into the world without a big fashion splash, so it’s fortuitous timing indeed that the first chunk of HBO Max’s reboot has arrived when it’s safe enough to have a premiere — and one we can run on GFY’s 17th birthday, to boot. It’s our senior year of high school! We are going to be stressed about grades and then REAL pills about our curfew.

I welcome the chaotic styling energy of a new teen soap crew. Jordan Alexander is, I think, going to be the breakaway Fug Madness contender in the bunch, and somehow I think she’d take that as a compliment.
