The actress will play Raina Thorpe, the daughter of a powerful business tycoon and a possible love interest to Chuck Bass. Sumpter, who most recently played Layla on One Life to Live, is off to a stylish start—she was spotted yesterday outside of Bergdorf Goodman shooting a scene with Chace Crawford, who plays Nate Archibald. We can’t wait to see what happens! Gossip Girl returns with new episodes on the CW January 24.

Garcia, star of ABC’s Better With You, chose a strapless ivory drop-waist gown and tulle veil by designer Monique Lhuillier for the ceremony. “I don’t think I’ll ever love a dress more than my wedding gown,” the bride told InStyle exclusively. “It made feel like a princess on the most magical day of my life.” Garcia paired her gown with Leor J. Yerushalmi jewelry and the groom wore a Burberry suit. Congratulations to the stylish newlyweds!
