Blair's bachelorette directed by Clueless's Amy Heckerling
Exciting news for plaid fans! Whether you came of age wearing mini-kilt's like Cher (Alicia Silverstone) in Clueless or copped your plaid penchant from Blair (Leighton Meester) on Gossip Girl, you're going to want to tune in for Blair's bachelorette on January 23. Seminal director Amy Heckerling (Clueless, Fast Times at Ridgemont High) will be at the helm when the Upper East Siders return to the airwaves. The sartorial strings of connection have always been there for those of us who are old enough to have seen Clueless on the big screen, and recent seasons have brought another connection - actor Wallace Shawn who played Mr. Hall in the '90s film features as Blair's stepfather on GG.
It will be awesome to see Heckerling's hand in yet another project that has been so prolific in dictating a generation's fashion for a moment in time. We'll see if Gossip Girl has the lasting status as a cultural touchstone that Clueless has enjoyed.
