Pinch us, we must be dreaming: Vogue UK is reporting that Alexa Chung, its guest editor and our favorite Brooklynite-by-way-of-Britain, has joined the cast of Gossip Girl, which has recently begun filming its final season.
Alexa was “spotted” on the NYC set alongside Leighton Meester and Blake Lively in full hair and makeup. No details have been revealed as to what role the it-girl will play on the show, or for how many episodes. Since GG is all about pop culture and fashion, we wouldn’t be surprised if she just plays herself in a cameo role, especially since, in the photo of her on set, she’s wearing the most Alexa Chung-esque outfit we’ve ever seen, replete with a sailor collar and flats.
Then again, how awesome would it be if she popped up as Lonely Boy’s latest Williamsburg conquest, perusing through Rufus’s gallery? Or Nate’s newest short-lived fling (what’s the deal with those?)? Or better yet, maybe they’ll save Alexa for the series finale, when it’s revealed that she’s Chuck Bass‘s long lost sister and he’s secretly been a British dandy all along. That would be too much.
This morning, Alexa retweeted Vogue UK’s story with the brief addition of “LOLZZZ.” Whether this dispels the Gossip Girl spot as merely a rumor, we can’t yet say. However, we hope that all that laughing out loudz was a result of her having so much fun on set. We’ve heard Dorota is a real prankster.
Update: A spokesperson for Alexa has confirmed to Vogue UK that the It Girl will indeed be making a cameo on Gossip Girl‘s last season. She’ll be playing herself. Needless to say, we can’t wait!
