Now that her promotion duties for her new film, Monte Carlo, are over, Leighton Meester is turning back to the role that made her a star. Leighton was the first cast member to go back to work as she was spotted filming scenes for the popular CW series’ fifth season in New York City on Wednesday, July 6. Wearing a beautiful yellow ensemble and bright red lips, Leighton was turning heads left and right as she strutted through Manhattan as Blair Waldorf.

With Gossip Girl beginning filming again that means that the rest of Leighton’s on-screen pals will be back from their summer hiatus. What will be the most popular topic of discussion on set? Probably co-star Blake Lively’s nude photo scandal and her new romance with A-lister Leonardo DiCaprio. Considering that Blake works on Gossip Girl alongside her ex-boyfriend, Penn Badgley, things might be a little bit awkward for the stars.
