Reunions seem to be following Alexis Bledel. First Gilmore Girls and now...Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants?
The 35-year-old actress revealed to Jimmy Fallon last night that she and her fellow movie — and real-life — BFFs, Blake Lively, America Ferrera and Amber Tamblyn are talking about doing another follow-up.
"We would all love to do it," she said. "It would be so much fun, I think we should absolutely do it."
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Alloy Entertainment announced in 2014 that they were developing a third film, based on the fifth Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants novel, Sisterhood Everlasting, which follows the besties as adults. Could this be what they're working on?

Another L.A. brand with a dedication to North American manufacturing and sustainability, 5-year-old Shaina Mote is known for architectural, un-adorned basics and fluid silhouettes.

Founded by Tokyo-to-L.A. transplants Alexander Yamaguchi and Momoko Suzuki, brand Black Crane is an edgier, more street-wise take on minimalism – think cocoon dresses and wrap trousers with subtle origami and kimono inspiration.
