ROLE CALL: Looks like Amy Astley is ready for her “Gossip Girl” close-up. The Teen Vogue editor in chief spent Tuesday with Blake Lively and company on location at the IAC building filming a scene for the CW soap that is tentatively slated to air in March. In it, Astley will appear as herself while attending a show for character Eleanor Waldorf’s new junior clothing line. (Astley tells Waldorf she’ll be giving the collection good ink in the magazine.) Real-life social fixture Helen Lee Schifter and Schifter’s 14-year-old daughter, Storey, also will make guest appearances in the episode. Astley joins a growing list of fashion personalities who have been featured on the series — including Michael Kors, Tory Burch, Tinsley Mortimer, Georgina Chapman and Nacho Figueras. A spokesman for Teen Vogue said Astley was initially approached by the show’s producers and has no plans to write about her experience in an upcoming issue.
