Katie Cassidy, actress (Gossip Girl)
How have you been spending your summer?
I feel like a gypsy because I have been living out of a suitcase all summer. I was all over Europe and then only had a few days off before I started filming Gossip Girl in New York.
I went to Amsterdam with my whole family before I started filming in Monte Carlo in June. Being with mom and dad at a bar is always interesting.
Most exciting thing that happened to you?
Shooting at the Eiffel Tower before sunrise (around 4 AM). The scene called for me running down the stairs barefoot so it was painful, yet fun! Also shooting at the Louvre before it was opened to the public.
What projects have you been involved with?
Monte Carlo and Gossip Girl and I’m always involved with my charity H.E.L.P. Malawi as well.
What’s been inspiring you?
The book, Why Men Love Bitches by Sherry Argov has changed my life. Do yourself a favor ladies and go pick up a copy at your nearest bookstore!
Most looking forward to this fall?
Staying home in Los Angeles! I just bought a new house before I left for Budapest. I haven’t spent more than 2 nights in it. I cant wait to start and cooking for family and friends!

Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester, who recently expressed interest in starting her own clothing line, already has one customer waiting in the wings: New costar Katie Cassidy! “I’d buy it,” the actress told PEOPLE at W magazine’s September issue celebration at N.Y.C.’s Saks Fifth Avenue on Tuesday. “She has really good taste. I think she‘d be a great designer.” In the meantime, Cassidy will continue to admire her castmate’s killer wardrobe, telling PEOPLE, “I’ve seen her closet. It’s pretty amazing! She has some really good clothing.” Since joining television’s most stylish cast, the former Melrose Place star has begun to develop some major fashion cred of her own, sitting front row at Diane von Furstenberg and Jason Wu alongside style stars like Sarah Jessica Parker and Diane Kruger during New York Fashion Week. And it’s paying off: Gossip Girl’s newest starlet shone in at the Saks event in a gold Diane von Furstenberg shift dress with an Alice + Olivia cardigan, and credited the CW hit for its fashion influence. “I’m learning about fashion and I find myself knowing more about what I should wear. The whole show is very chic and the clothes are unbelievably beautiful. It’s like a girl’s playground.”
