As any Gossip Girl fan will tell you, the glamorous outfits paraded in the US series are as fascinating as the scandalous lives of the elite Manhattan teenagers it follows.
Shots from the set of the show, described as the younger generation's answer to Sex And The City, suggest followers won't be disappointed with the new season's fashion.
Actresses Blake Lively and newcomer Hilary Duff both arrived for a day at the 'office' in sparkling flapper girl dresses.
The starlets were preparing to film an episode that takes place during a Twenties-themed party.
US star Blake – society princess Serena van der Woodsen in the show – wowed in a figure-hugging, sequinned number, teamed with fish-net stockings.
Hilary - making her debut as a film star in search of the normal college experience - had picked out a sparkly black ensemble.
Rows of pearls and a jewel-encrusted headband topped off the Jazz Age look.
Actor Penn Badgley, who dates Blake on and off screen, was dressed in a Bugsy Malone-inspired outfit.
His girlfriend, whose success on the show has turned her into a worldwide fashion icon, has offered fans advice on how to achieve effortless style.
"I make sure I dress for my figure. Something has to look good on you, not just be in style," she says.
The third series of Gossip Girl, which sees the gang head off to college, hits screens on September 14.
