Before she was on Gossip Girl, she was just a girl. Apparently a girl who modeled grandma’s robes for children as evidenced by the picture above. As a child she modeled more than robes though, she also worked for Ralph Lauren and Limited Too, and did commercials for Tamagotchi.
She got her acting start like so many other actors, on Law & Order. Eventually, she earned her breakthrough role on The CW’s teen drama Gossip Girl. She married her co-star Adam Brody, and the couple has a child together.
