Above: Chace Crawford (Nate) and Blake Lively (Serena) looking as terrific as ever. We can certainly see what Carrie Underwood sees in Chace Crawford!
Below: The lovely Leighton Meester (Blair), who may be the cutest girl on Earth. Or at least tied with Friday Night Lights look-alike Minka Kelly for that honor. What we would've give to receive that under the tree this year.
Blake, Chace, Leighton and the rest of their Gossip Girl cohorts return for an all-new episode this Wednesday on The CW. We're counting down the days.
