East Coast vs. West Coast
The eternal rivalry moves to another battlefield: this week premiered both the second season of Gossip Girl and the reborn 90210 TV show. Now imagine the Upper East Side style with gloves, sweaters and raincoats from Bergdorf, and then the So-Cal swim trunks and wife beaters. Then imagine the almost Bergmanesque dialogues between Blair and Chuck at the Hamptons (GG) and the trashy tease with the pigs on some football field (90210). Continue with the Manhattan girls and guys actually looking seventeen years old and the sundried "sweet-sixteeners" from the West Beverly Hills who might actually be born in early 70's. The disparity couldn't be more obvious and I have a clear winner.
