June 11, 2021: Who are they, and what will they be wearing? That’s one secret we’ve all been waiting to uncover when the Gossip Girl reboot debuts on July 8. Lucky enough for us, we got a sneak peek of what the scandalous Manhattan’s elite will be wearing for this upcoming series, thanks to the official trailer, which dropped on Thursday, June 10.
HBO Max gave fans a lot in the two minutes and ten-second tease. One minute and twenty-seven seconds into the much-awaited teaser, we couldn’t help but notice Gen Z Constance Billard clan leader Julien Calloway (played by Jordan Alexander) closing a fashion show wearing American designer Christopher John Rogers.
The It-girl struts down the runway dressed in a part checkered part swirling abstract black-and-white look in a bold red lip. All to a very fitting soundtrack—Frank Ocean’s “Super Rich Kids.”It’s unclear the context of the fashion show at this time (guess we’ll have to tune in for that.) But what we do know is that the design Calloway is wearing is from the Christopher John Rogers Spring 2021 collection, which debuted back in early October of 2020.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic and consequent cancelation of in-person New York Fashion Week, the fashion industry didn’t get to see CJR’s Spring 2021 collection on the runway. We did, however, get a lookbook, which features the very dress Calloway wears in the trailer (see the photo above).
As the original Gossip Girl Dan Humphrey once said, “You’re no one until you’re talked about,” and the American designer is, rightfully, all everyone can seem to talk about (and wear) these days. His pieces make two other moments in the trailer: Calloway is seen wearing a corset top, and another cast member is spotted in a purple cropped blazer with statement shoulders.
If you don’t already have plans to watch the premiere with your girl gang, this is your sign to. The dress Calloway wore is available online now—shop it now so you can show up in your best Upper East Sider attire. Xoxo GRAZIA.
