For Gossip Girl fans, she's immortalised as bad influence Georgina Sparks, but to some of us, Michelle Trachtenberg will always be Dawn Summers.

The actress featured as Sarah Michelle Gellar's onscreen little sister in Buffy the Vampire Slayer from 2000 to 2003 and seems to have avoided the pitfalls of child stardom.

Like much of the cast (bar Alyson Hannigan), she hasn't reached the same success since the show wrapped, but thanks to her role as the best dressed villain on Gossip Girl, a whole new generation know who she is.

She was joined by her fellow former Upper West Side resident Ed Westwick for Saturday night's The Art of Elysium 2016 HEAVEN Gala presented by Vivienne Westwood, in the run up to tonight's Golden Globes.

The now 30-year-old wore a mesmerising alice + olivia coat dress with a bejewelled Stuart Weitzman clutch and shoes. Serena Van Der Woodsen would approve.
