You've already been schooled on how to be crowned as the next Queen Bee, but don't put down your pen and paper just yet. Blair Waldorf's not the only Upper East Sider who can teach you a thing or two about life. As far as becoming an It girl is concerned, Serena van der Woodsen is the only name that matters.

Just be yourself and do your own thing. An It girl shouldn't be vying for the title of Ms. Congeniality anyway.

2. BE APPROACHABLE.

You still need to look like that girl from Page Six, but an occasional slice of pizza is a must to build rapport.

3. MEMORIZE DESIGNER NAMES BY HEART.

People should look up to you as their style icon. So forget about your ex-boyfriends’ names if you must, but don't dare mispronounce Christian Louboutin. Just don't.

4. SHOW THEM YOU'RE THE LIFE OF THE PARTY.

Socialize, okay? No one wants to be around someone boring. You were born to stand out, so don’t be shy and prove to them that you’re total It girl material.

5. BUT BE VERY PICKY ABOUT WHICH ONES YOU GO TO.

Don't overexpose yourself. Just because you were invited doesn’t always mean you should say yes. Up your value by skipping a party once in a while. Sometimes it’s best to just stay home and focus on more important things like, you know, gelato and Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

There are no words.

7. ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR FAULTS.

Especially when you've enjoyed yourself way too much at a party and told people you could buy them, their friends and that club.

8. VALUE YOUR ALLIES.

You may have tons of followers, but never lose sight of the people who matter the most. Who needs an army when you have friends and family, right?
