The shoes, the clothes, the drama -- everyone's favorite Upper East Siders will make their return when Gossip Girl season five premieres on Monday night at 8/7 C on the CW.

But whether you're sad about Vanessa Abrams (Jessica Szohr), Jenny Humphrey (Taylor Momsen) and Eric van der Woodsen (Connor Paolo) having left the cast or you're intrigued to find out who that pregnancy test belonged to in the season finale, one thing is for sure -- the fashion will be lust-worthy, especially the wardrobes of Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively) and Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester).

From S' thigh-grazing skirts and sky-high heels (does she own anything else?) to B's colorful ensembles (including a citrus outfit and bright yellow pumps), it's no secret that the cast is one of the best-dressed ones on television.

Not to mention, the New Yorkers are about to get their sexiest addition to date -- Elizabeth Hurley has joined the cast for a multi-episode plot where she plays red-hot media mogul Diana Payne -- who gets into a major lip lock with Nate Archibald (Chace Crawford)!
