Gossip Girl here, your one and only source into the scandalous lives of Manhattan’s elite. Just kidding. But really, on last night’s episode of Gossip Girl, Eleanor Waldorf and her designs made an appearance long enough for Willa Holland aka Kaitlin Cooper aka Agnes Andrews to make it into another episode and for Jenny to get a job.
Here is a look at the Spring 2010 lookbook from Abigail Lorick, the lady behind Eleanor Waldorf Designs. Click here for more.
What do I Love You Man, I Am Sam, Sex and the City, and Legally Blonde all have in common? All four movies use product placement: an advertising technique used by companies to subtly, or not so subtly promote their brand by casting their product in a starring film or television role.
Case and Point:
Peter Klaven storing Sydney Fife in his iPhone (or “iPhun”, as he so awkwardly puts it).
The opening scene of I Am Sam, where Sam obsessively organizes Starbucks mugs, and sugar packets by raw, white and sweetener.
Carrie Bradshaw frequently spending her paychecks on Manolo Blahniks.
….and aspiring lawyer and ditzy sorority girl Elle Woods, walking into the Apple Store in a bunny costume, determined to be taken seriously by purchasing a bright orange Mac laptop.
More recently, product placement has taken a turn in the effort of promoting music artists and bands as their own brand. If you turn on MTV or watch an episode of Gossip Girl, you are bound to hear the newest, up-and-coming pop song featured within the episodes. MTV even lists the song that is being played at the bottom of the television screen, just in case you are one of those unlucky few who don’t have an iPhone and therefore don’t have the Shazaam app!
Whether or not product placement really works is debatable among the marketing industry. But, all I can say is that after watching I Am Sam, all i wanted to do was drink a triple-grande-half-sweet-nonfat-hazelnut-latte with extra foam (yes, I used to work at Starbucks) and listen to The Beatles all day long.
Does S really think she can stay in the spotlight without a battle? Girls, get ready for the vengeance of B, we all know what happened the last time S got all the attention. Little J, watch out, just when you thought you could rein the Van Der Woodsen empire, you were wrong. And boys, get ready to bow down, this girl is the hottest thing on the upper east side.
From the same girl who brought you, “I’m an artist, I’m not going to use trigonometry”, comes another quotable moment.”My legs are really long and that’s cool apparently, but I’m totally klutzy. I mean, I’m like Bambi. I fall all over myself because I can’t control my arms and my really long legs.” – Sixteen-year-old Taylor Momsen in the February issue of Seventeen
Sorry Little J, no time to sympathize, still trying to get over the fact that you’re only sixteen.
in the graduation scene, did anyone else notice that everyone is wearing the traditional cap and gown (green for the Constance girls and blue for the St. Jude boys). everyone that is but, apparently, too stylish Serena who prefers just to wear the cap tassel in her hair….
this fashion statement is even a little odd for this show, i guess we can’t all be as stylish and as naturally blond as Blake Lively.
..oh well, see you next season..
xoxo gossip girl!
