‘Gossip Girl’ Gets an Actual New Yorker!

Well, hello, Upper East Siders. It seems like Gossip Girl will be getting a real-live New Yorker this season. Brooklyn-born Michelle Trachtenberg has taken on the Gossip Girl role that Mischa Barton so unwisely passed over: that of Georgina Sparks, the bad girl "who rolls into Manhattan from rehab, shaking up and torturing the life of Serena van der Woodsen." Trachtenberg has been working since practically the day she popped out of the womb: She's been in everything from Clarissa Explains It All to Six Feet Under, but we (as well as probably the entire staff at Knopf) remember her as the girl who shook up and tortured Ann Packer's The Dive From Clausen's Pier when she played the main character in the Lifetime movie last year. But somehow, we're looking forward to seeing her again, partly because a tortured Serena has got to be a more interesting Serena. Bring on the peer pressure! Trachtenberg to Appear on Gossip [HR]

LeAnn Rimes Magically Appears at Lhuillier

We finally escaped from the endless tyranny of Demi Moore and Sophia Bush and enjoyed some fresh faces at the Monique Lhuillier show: singer LeAnn Rimes and starlet Michelle Trachtenberg, each of whom was wearing the designer's clothing — and a lot of foundation for the benefit of the cameras. That said, it's refreshing to see child stars who have not grown up to be tremendous skanks, and we are grateful to them for all of their panty-wearing, complexion-saving good behavior.

Jeremy Piven Falls Over Petra Nemcova at Prada

Piven, Tyler, Nemcova
Of all the Fashion Week parties, the Prada-store event will always be good. They couldn't possibly top their last big Fashion Week bash with the Raconteurs, but we figured they might come close. And they did, sort of. We'd been looking forward to hearing Damien Hirst's formerly crack-addicted "maverick fucking geezer" friend Antony Green and his band the Hours play beneath a mockup of Hirst's $100 million skull. But pretty much from the second they started, we started to doze off. There were soundboard issues, and the music did not rock. Instead, we counted the celebs who had been able to squeeze their tiny bodies onto the steps opposite the stage (which is right in front of that big curvy thing in the middle of the store). Quite a few, it turned out.

Starry Night at Marc Jacobs After-Party

With elbow space and oxygen in short supply (but booze flowing for miles) at the jam-packed Marc Jacobs after-party Monday night, everybody's celebrity radars went on overdrive — with some woefully inaccurate results. "Dude," a guy whispered, pointing to us — yes, us — as we side-stepped past them with difficulty. "She was totally on Leno the other night, but with a way different hair color."
