The original post (sans video) is below.
So many people are channeling their inner Marilyn Monroe these days. Michelle Williams is doing it in a film and Lindsay Lohan is doing it for Playboy. So it was just a matter of time until the iconic actress got her turn on TV. And for this we can thank " Gossip Girl."
In a video producers probably don't want you to see yet, Blake Lively re-enacts the famed "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend" scene from the 1953 film " Gentlemen Prefer Blondes." Dancing alongside Lively are her co-stars, Chace Crawford, Penn Badgley, Hugo Becker and Ed Westwick (looking like he's suffered no ill effects from the car crash).
The video is semi-narrated by Crawford who seems to be getting a kick out the whole thing. In a surprise ending, Leighton Meester appears dressed as Audrey Hepburn (circa " Breakfast at Tiffany's" and she drags Badgley away. Perhaps this is a foretelling of a future romance between the two?
