Watching movies is the most effective stress-reliever I’ve ever found; therefore, I spend lots of time following my favorite TV shows or its rebroadcast whenever I’m free from work. Among loads of TV series I’ve watched, nothing can beat Gossip Girls, a show I’d grown obsessed with during my high school years and still haven’t been over it yet till now.

Gossip Girls is an American TV drama series based on the book of the same name which was aired from 2007 to 2012, including six seasons. Gossip Girls follows the lives of privileged teenagers in Manhattan’s Upper East Side with tons of twists and thoughtful moments. There are hundreds of reasons I love the show and I have no doubt why it once was the most popular series with 18 Teen Choice Awards. First of all, the cast is breathtakingly gorgeous. Every one of them. [Serena Van Der Woodsen, a blonde and beautiful socialite and Blair Waldorf, Serena’s best friend and Queen B at their high school are two main lead actresses. Their relationship is like a roller coaster and more than once they become rivals, however, they always come around, which makes the show so beautiful to watch. Nate Archibald is the so-called “golden boy”. Chuck Bass a rich and arrogant person. And finally, Daniel Humphrey a lonely boy from Brooklyn who nobody knows.] They have great chemistry and are all talented actors. Secondly, the show has the finest fashion moments ever. It can be said that Gossip Girls gained most of its reputation thanks to its glamorous and extravagant costume collections. From their main cast to occasional cameos, they always turn heads every time they appear in their stunning outfits. Last but not least, the highlight of the show is a ruthless and notorious blogger, aka Gossip Girls whose identity remains unknown until the very last episode of the whole series, which only entices the TV audiences more. The list can go on and on and I highly recommend the series for those who want to have a glimpse into the lavish lifestyle of the upper-class as well as their fabulous fashion.
