At first glance, you may think Emily Alyn Lind, who will be playing Audrey in HBO Max's Gossip Girl reboot, is a newcomer to the scene — but that's not so. The 18-year-old actress got her start in the Secret Life of Bees, and she's known for her roles in Revenge, J. Edgar, and more recently, Code Black, Doctor Sleep and Netflix's Babysitter: Killer Queen. Both her parents are in the film industry, and Emily has actually walked many a red carpet as a young girl. We just found out that she'll begin production on the new Gossip Girl in October 2020, which is giving us all the more reason to get a better handle on her style — and it's decidedly more Jenny Humphrey than Serena van der Woodsen or Blair Waldorf.
Emily shares her off-duty looks pretty frequently on Instagram, where her witty sense of humour is met with '90s grunge combat boots and retro fashion (think: grandpa cardigans, feminine cherry prints, and cat-eye sunglasses). Emily has already worn the likes of Miu Miu and animal friendly brand Hiraeth for public appearances, and we're guessing she'll be introducing us to many brands — potentially even sustainable, vintage labels! — in the future.
