Life imitates art and viceversa in this show!
Chace Crawford is as fragile as a baby unicorn’s first coo and as precious as a bunny in a bubble bath, so you can’t expect him to hold his own umbrella! Besides, it’s impossible for Chace to hold his own umbrella. He might smudge his freshly polished nails or smear the foundation on his palms. Blake Lively and Leighton Meester can hold their own umbrellas, because their ancestors were vikings or miners or some shit. They are built for hard labor, but not Chace.
Fun Fact: Chace’s umbrella was originally white, but he accidentally farted and his multicolored butt fumes waltzed through the air before landing on it.
