When the CW show returns for its fourth season Monday (9 p.m. ET), Blair (Leighton Meester) and Serena (Blake Lively) have left Manhattan – and their complicated love lives – behind for a summer in Paris. And what do two privileged Upper East Siders do in the City of Light? Shop! And not just for shoes.
In an exclusive clip of the season 4 premiere, the besties hit the stores on Avenue Montaigne and Blair is working her contact list, hoping to find a date after what’s so far been a dry summer. Serena, who’s enjoyed one fling after the next, is trying to talk to her friend about a mysterious package that arrived in mail when Blair gets word that her baccarat date is on – and it’s a double.
So, before they can talk about the La Poste, they’ll need to pick up a perfect pair of brown boots – Chanel, no less – for Serena.
