The gorgeous cast of Gossip Girl left their home base of New York City this weekend and flew to Los Angeles where they were honored by the Paley Center for Media. Not only was the panel one of the prettiest we've ever seen, but it was one of the most fun, too.

Blake Lively (Serena van der Woodsen), who was introduced by moderator Tim Stack as "the best head of hair in Hollywood," and Leighton Meester (Blair Waldorf), who was originally a blonde and had to dye her hair during the Gossip Girl audition process, pose for the photogs with Taylor Momsen (Jenny Humphrey).

Taylor meets up with Chace Crawford (Nate Archibald) and Jessica Szohr (Vanessa Abrams), whose characters will begin hanging out when the series returns for five new episodes on April 21. Fun fact: Jessica met Girl executive producer Josh Schwartz last year when she attended a barbeque at his house with mutual friends.

Seen here with Chace Crawford, Ed Westwick (Chuck Bass) made the ladies swoon with his thick British accent—and made it impossible for Josh Schwartz to understand a word he said.

Kelly Rutherford's character, Lily, may or may not be a bride to be. "We are building toward a wedding, but we won't say whose [wedding] or if it happens," said Savage. As for Lily's shaky relationship with Rufus Humphrey, Matthew Settle doesn't see why it would be a problem for their respective onscreen kids, Serena and Dan: "It's 2008. I think they should have a double date..."

By the way, Blair and Jenny go to war this spring, Schwartz told the audience. But when Georgina Sparks (Michelle Trachtenberg), a blast from Serena's past, shows up, Blair will be very intimidated...

Stay tuned!
