85 Gossip Girl Innovations

From Modern Parisian Fashion to Edgy Celebrity Ads

— October 18, 2011 — Pop Culture
Whether you love it or you hate it, it's hard to deny the influence that CW television show Gossip Girl has had on pop culture. Since its debut in 2007, the show has delved into some scandalous and controversial issues, such as drug use, pregnancy, eating disorders, and essentially anything else you can think of that is considered a taboo topic. Besides, with a name like Gossip Girl, a little bit of controversy was to be expected, right?

With an unbelievably gorgeous cast featuring the likes of Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Chace Crawford and Taylor Momsen, audiences are always ensured that no matter how outrageous the plot may get, one thing that can be relied on is an hour of staring at beautiful twenty-something-year-olds for an hour a week.

Have a look through this list of Gossip Girl features and innovations to see the cast's influence on so many facets of pop culture.
