Quarantine and Netflix have given us ample opportunity to rewatch Gossip Girl and discover new things we'd previously missed. And one TikTok user, @skyehanamaikai, went viral for what she found: The Blake Lively wardrobe malfunction that no one really talked about when the season six episode first aired in 2012.
Lively's character Serena van der Woodsen wore a coral Roland Mouret bodycon dress for a scene she did with Penn Badgley. In the beginning shots of the scene, her legs were bare and the dress appeared as it was intended to. Then seconds later, Lively appeared with black sweatpants under the dress.
E! pointed out that one commenter on the TikTok post claimed they knew the actual reason the sweatpants incident happened. "LOL, I worked on set, it's because she ripped her dress," the user wrote.
Others theorized that she was wearing them because it had been meant to be a waist-up shot where they wouldn't be seen. Sweatpants weren't the only loungewear the cast wore either while shooting in designer clothes. There are many photos of the Gossip Girl cast wearing Uggs and puffer coats between takes.
HBO Max is working on a Gossip Girl reboot now, but it will have an all-new cast. Lively said in January that she is "not involved" in the project at this point. But back in 2017, she said she would be open to doing a reunion with the original cast.
"It sort of all depends," Lively told Variety in April 2017. "Would I do seven years of the show? No, because it's hard work and I've got my babies, and I don't want to be away from them that much. But I've just learned in life you never say never. I'm looking to do something that I haven't done yet, not something that I did. But would I do that? Who knows—if it was good, if it made sense. We had so much fun shooting and living and working in New York City."
