"Gossip Girl" will celebrate the glamorous old Hollywood in its upcoming 100th episode. In addition to the anticipated Blair wedding, the said outing will also feature a musical number where Blake Lively's Serena imagines herself as Marilyn Monroe.
Channeling the late iconic star, Serena dons a pink strapless gown with matching opera-length gloves and completes it with dazzling jewelry. She will be seen reenacting the famed "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend" scene from 1953's film "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes".
Stepping down the stairs, Serena is surrounded by the show's male characters, including Penn Badgley's Dan, Chace Crawford's Nate, Ed Westwick's Chuck and Hugo Becker's Louis, who all wear similar suits. Also in the dream sequence, Leighton Meester's Blair is featured dressing as Audrey Hepburn.
The 100th episode of "Gossip Girl" will air Monday, January 30 at 8/7c on The CW. Executive producer Josh Safran recently said he has wanted to film the Marilyn number since the first season. "It's something we've never done before. From season 1, I said, 'I want to do this.' But it just wasn't the right time. I've been pushing it for five years, and it finally happened," he revealed.
