For those who loved the HBO reboot of “Gossip Girl,” you may have to show your affection on reruns and digital networks that may carry the show. After two years, HBO has pulled the plug on “Gossip Girl.” The last episode of “Gossip Girl” will air on HBO Max on January 26.

It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to announce “Gossip Girl” will not be continuing on HBO Max. Thank you for watching, and I hope you’ll tune into the finale next Thursday to see how it all comes together. Xoxo,” explained “Gossip Girl” executive producer Joshua Safran.

A representative for HBO Max told Deadline, “We are very grateful to [Safran] and executive producers Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz for bringing us back to the Upper East Side and all the scandals at Constance Billard. Although we are not moving forward with a third season of “Gossip Girl”we thank them for the enticing love triangles, calculated backstabbing and impeccable fashion this series brought to a new audience.”

The original “Gossip Girl” ran on the CW network from September 2007 to 2012.

Welcome back MJ

Marc Jacobs is coming back to New York Fashion Week (NYFW). Jacobs will again show at his venue of choice, the Park Avenue Armory. Jacobs will show ahead of NYFW on February 2. Jacobs last showed in New York City in June of 2022 for a small, intimate audience at the New York Public Library.

Contrary to many designers presenting at NYFW, Jacobs will show his spring 2023 collection instead of a fall 2023 collection, like many designers showing at NYFW. This spring collection will be available immediately at Bergdorf Goodman. For the spring 2023 season, Jacobs collaborated with Fendi for a 10-piece capsule collection modeled by some of the top models in the fashion industry.

So long, Jackie

Fashion model/designer Jackie Rogers recently passed away. Rogers was a model of choice for Coco Chanel, Valentino, Simonetti, and Gabiano in the 1960s.  

Rogers was also noted fashion stylist, styling the likes of Lee Radziwill, Barbara Walters, Christine Baranski, Condoleezza Rice, Courtney Love, Nicole Kidman, Jack Nicholson, Dustin Hoffman, and Sammy Davis Jr., according to Women’s Wear Daily. Many folks in the fashion industry consider Rogers the first fashion industry influencer before social media existed and created such fashion creatures.

Rogers came from humble beginnings, starting her modeling career at the age of 16, working for $55 an hour during the summer at Priscilla’s of Boston. While appearing in Federico Fellini’s “8 ½ weeks,” Rogers was discovered by Coco Chanel. Rogers later became a muse of Coco Chanel.

“Jackie was a pretty amazing character with an incredible history as a barber in New York, a muse of Coco Chanel and a booming baritone that commanded attention among her well-heeled clients in Manhattan and Palm Beach,” said Robert Janjigian, a former Daily News fashion editor.

Jackie Rogers was 90 years old and passed away on Tuesday.
