Oh to be Serena van der Woodsen.

Yahoo TV writes, "According to executive producer Josh Safran this Marilyn number has been something he's wanted to film since the show's first season. 'It's something we've never done before. From Season 1, I said, 'I want to do this.' But it just wasn't the right time. I've been pushing it for five years, and it finally happened.'"
