XOXO, Gossip Girl

Yes, everyone in Gossip Girl possessed over-the-top, screen siren good looks, and so body image was never really an issue. (Except kinda sorta in the first season, when we learned that Blair was kinda sorta struggling with her former bout with anorexia… so sometimes perfection is hard even for the very beautiful and very rich)

All the same, here is where I indulge my love of Fashion, and with this week’s Last Episode of GG Ever, Lou and I decided to do a fashion retrospective of the show’s two starlets, Blair and Serena, over at CWPL.

Clearly I wrote about Blair – the preppy, ladylike, Audrey aficionado.
Lou is writing about Serena – the oft bohemian, sometimes gaudy, always sexy siren.

S and I are in talks for a future post on RLB about women who use other women as accessories, but for now enjoy this Gossip Girl swan song!

Ps. For those who have (gasp) never seen the show, it’s worth mentioning that B is not just a “fan” of Audrey Hepburn. One of the best plot devices on GG was Blair’s frequent dreams starring herself as classic Audrey film characters. They were always entertaining, and showed off little Meester’s actual acting chops. Definitely a favorite part of the show.

You will be missed, GG!

  1. I can’t wait to read the “women as accessories” post! Even if I have no idea from which direction you’re approaching the subject … also glad to see you got that Audrey shot in there 🙂

  2. I know this is about the fashion of GG and not necessarily the characters, but I have no other outlet for this at the moment, without running into spoilers. So, here: I frickin’ can’t stand Serena, and I wish Chase Crawford could act. This show drives me crazy cuz it’s sooooo stupid, but I keep watching. Damn you Netflix!! Anyway, I feel better.
    I love Blair’s clothes, always. And Chuck’s too for that matter! I’m not a fan of off-the-shoulder with Serena, nor with some of her short skirt/dress choices; I think she looks awkward a lot.
    Thanks for allowing me to get those things off my chest. Much better now.

    1. My sisters and I generally refer to Serena/BL as “Mush Mouth” because I guess it isn’t sexy to enunciate. Chase Crawford is this generation’s Keanu. He doesn’t have to be good at acting, because he’s so pretty to look at no one really cares. Lou hasn’t watched GG much in recent years, because it is a truly indulgent and ridiculous show, but B and I kept tuning in for the fashion porn and beautiful people. So don’t feel bad! It’s a great braincation. And besides. Chuck Bass.
