Leighton Meester has kicked off the production of "Gossip Girl" season 5. Rocking a yellow top and a lemon-printed skirt with matching orange pumps and bag, the 25-year-old brunette beauty finished off her look with some bracelets when portraying Blair Waldorf on Thursday, July 7.
"The Roommate" actress was not alone during the first day of filming. She was joined by new cast member Roxane Mesquida, who is cast as Prince Louis' sister who is hell-bent on sabotaging her brother and Blair's impending nuptials. Together, the two were seen walking on the street in Manhattan, New York City while having a chat.
As of late, it was reported that another new character is coming to Upper East Side due to Blair's wedding. "Lost" alum Marc Menard is cast for potentially recurring role of Father Cavalia, a priest from Monaco with ties to Blair's fiance, Prince Louis. Rumor has it, the pontiff will preside over the couple's wedding ceremony, but he may encounter some resistance from Louis' meddling sister.
"Gossip Girl" will return with all new episodes on Monday, September 26 at 8/7c.
