AFI Fest 2011 packed Grauman's Chinese Theatre with A-listers and the hotel's ballrooms with film fetes and even reportedly saw gate-crashing and a bar fight.

In addition, there are a number of websites that dedicate their content to tracking what the cast wears, citing the specific designer, cost of each item and links to retail sites. Among them: http://www.gossipgirlfashion.net ? Perhaps the most comprehensive website on all things worn by the Gossip Girls.
