This morning, my friend asked me how the clothes were at Rock & Republic but I was like, What clothes? Yes, it was technically a fashion show except we were too busy staring at the crowd to really notice. As promised, Chace was front row, alongside Jessica Szohr (Vanessa), who is probably the only Gossip Girl cast member to look and dress differently from her character in real life. And then to our delightful surprise, Miss Ashley Olsen plunked down next to Jessica and the two chatted and giggled throughout the show. Could this possibly indicate a guess appearance for the twin? We could totally see Ashley Olsen playing Ashley Olsen, maybe at a party at the Gansevoort and air-kissing Serena to everyone else's secret jealousy. Only after we finally took our seats did we notice Margherita Missoni sitting directly across from us and in second row; Nina Garcia and then, we're not sure why, John Legend and his girlfriend. Also inexplicably, but predictably, were Alex and Simon from Real Housewives of Manhattan. We did however look up long enough to see that all the looks coming down the runway were exclusively black and white, and exclusively T-I-G-H-T. And since when are leggings and a tube top considered fashion? The boys, however, did walk out in some pretty awesome suits that we hope Chace noted. We're less sure about the acid washed black and white jeans - but hey, who knows what'll happen in the life of Nate. --HAYLEY PHELAN --PHOTOGRAPHY BY JEREMY KOST
