Blake Lively as Serena
Blake Lively is a force of nature. Actually reminds me of a slightly younger Kelly Rutherford from her days on Generations. A true star who commands each scene she is in.
Leighton Meester as Blair
Early on I thought Leighton Meester was a bit of weak link in the cast, but man was I wrong. Her comedic timing and smarts made her a hit of the season to me. So delicious! I espeically liked seeing her in scenes with Dan and Jenny.
Taylor Momsen as Jenny
Taylor Momsen was the biggest surprise to me of season 1. She was not on my radar, but man her character and story were highlights of season 1. At only 14, this girl is amazing and will be around for years to come.
Kelly Rutherford as Lily
Kelly Rutherford is pure magic! From her early days on Generations through Melrose Place, Homefront and more, she lights up every show she is in. Gossip Girl is no exception and she is a stand out as Lily.
