SPOTTED: Dynasty bombshell, Elizabeth Gillies definitely has the sass and sophistication to play a snobby upper-east sider.

Read on to find out if we should be looking for Gillies on the met steps anytime soon.

Elizabeth Gillies Fans Do A Double Take

Early Friday afternoon, former Nickelodeon star, Elizabeth Gillies posted several photos of herself on Instagram that had fans scrolling back for a second look. In the post, the 28-year-old actress and Dynasty castmate, Eliza Bennett, were dressed to resemble the two iconic lead characters from Gossip Girl.

Wearing a dark brown wig, blue shorts over red stockings and a belted blazer, Gillies outfit nailed the Blair Waldorf persona right out of the water. The celeb carried a red leather purse and styled the wig in bouncy long curls that flowed over her shoulder. The look culminated in the essential red lip that Blair was rarely seen without.

Eliza Bennett accompanied Gillies in the photos and was, of course, styled as Blair’s #1 bestie, Serena Vanderwoodsen. Bennett’s style mimicked the traditional GG upper-east side prep school kid vibe. The would-be-Serena wore a green and blue plaid skirt, oversized bedazzled sweater, and long grey thigh-high socks. While she normally has blonde hair, Eliza also opted for a wig much longer than her natural ‘do.  Eliza styled her wig the exact same way Blake Lively wore her hair in the notorious CW series.

Is Gillies Auditioning For A Gossip Girl Reboot?

While we would absolutely love to report that the much-beloved series is returning to the small screen, no. As of now, there are no plans in the worst for rebooting the popular millennial series, though fans have been desperately wanting one for years.

So what’s with Gillies’ getup? Well, this year, Elizabeth decked out in a Blair Waldorf cosplay as her Halloween costume.

On Instagram, she captions the photo collection by writing, “Happy Halloweekend, Upper East Siders.”

The post contained four photos. Three were of Eliza and Elizabeth posing in popular GG locations around upper-eastside Manhattan. The fourth photo was a picture of the original Blair and Serena. Fans were amazed they were able to capture the outfits so closely. Followers in the comment section repeatedly made an effort to tag Blake Lively and Leighton Meister to get them in on the Doppelganger fun.
