Check out all our lists for BuddyTV's Top 7 of '07 to relive the best and the worst of the year in television.
According to the book series of the same name upon which Gossip Girl
is based, Serena van der Woodsen is tall and slim, has long blonde hair and big blue eyes, and is ethereally beautiful. And 20-year-old Blake Lively
is the perfect young actress to play her.
If you recall, BuddyTV Senior Writer Oscar Dahl and I had a face-off about Gossip Girl
before the show premiered. During our conversation, Oscar thought that none of the girls on Gossip Girls
could hold a candle to Mischa Barton
or Rachel Bilson
, but I still vehemently disagree. Unlike the prematurely time-ravaged Barton who played Serena's Californian doppelganger on The O.C.
, Lively actually looks her age. She pouts attractively, which suits her poor little rich girl character, but her smile can brighten up the entire room too. And can we talk about her impossibly long legs? Girlfriend is a gazelle! There's no question that Lively is one hot girl, but probably what I like best about her is that although she has the potential to be the next hot sex kitten, she still dresses and carries herself with the class.
