Will it be love in the City of Lights for Gossip Girl's Serena?

And while Blair tries her hardest to hook her pal up on their Parisian getaway, all Serena is lusting after is labels.

"When you asked me on this trip, you promised me retail therapy -- I fell asleep thinking about guys named [Christian] Louboutin and [Yves St.] Laurent. Home doesn't exist until we're there," she tells Blair in a clip from the all-new episode. (Watch above)
