RIP Gossip Girl

This Monday, my favorite show on TV ended. You all know which one I'm talking about. XOXO, ring any bells?

That's right, the CW network's Gossip Girl finally ended after six seasons of the show. I literally have every box set. I have annual GG marathons where I sit in my pjyamas and cram as many episodes into one day as I can.

Now, I'm not going to waffle on about the plot inconsistencies, or how much I ship Chair, I want to talk about the CLOTHES. The clothes, the clothes, oh my god, the clothes. Did I mention the clothes?

Now Blake Lively might be a global superstar and married to one of the hottest guys in the universe, but in my eyes the biggest star of the show had to be the fashion.

Gossip Girl has been the cause of so much style envy, from Serena's not-quite-uniform Constance uniform, to Blair's headgear and Little J's...well everything (Except the raccoon eyes. Taylor Momsen, you can keep those).

So, in celebration, or in mourning, I haven't quite decided yet, of the show, I present my all time favorite outfits from across all six series.

Serena's 'school uniform' in seasons one and two was the cause of SO much envy. 

Ignoring the blatent fact that there's no way anyone could actually get away with wearing those outfits to school, those slouchy cardigans, knee high socks and loose ties helped school uniforms actually look stylish for once.

Serena's bridesmaid's dress. Need I say more? I wasn't a fan of the short version that Blair's minions wore, but that full length Vera Wang dress, OMG. For an episode centered around Blair's princess wedding, Serena's dress totally stole the show. Forget a white gown, I want to wear that dress on my wedding day. 

The George Chakra cage dress has got to be my favourite Serena outfit of all six seasons. It's so quirky, and summery, and I just want to scarper about Paris wearing it for the rest of my life.

I love the blazer, boater hat and brogues that the stylists paired it with, which edges it up a little bit and stops it looking a bit too feminine. 

Blair's style never really meshed with mine, her look is far too well put together for me to pull off! 

I did however fall in love with her prom dress, the peacock embroidery on the floor length gown put my pink cocktail prom choice to shame, and the Oscar de la Renta number from early season 4 was also a favourite. Definitely what I'd like to be wearing meeting a prince for the first time. 

Little J
 Oh, little Jenny Humphey. How your look changed drastically since season one. Looking back, you looked so sweet and innocent, who would have known you'd turn out to be the edgiest dresser of the upper east side?

My inner rock star want's Little J's entire wardrobe. She wore those stripper heels, fish net tights and mini skirts with a leather jacket thrown on top and STILL managed to look killer. My hat goes off to you, Taylor Momsen. If I was wearing one.



  1. Love this post. The stylists of Gossip Girl were always my true heroes. They never failed to define the moment and the changing points in each of the characters' lives.

    For me, the final episode summarised the style which we've grown to love. I mean, S in Georges Chakra and B in Elie Saab - absolutely divine.

    One thing's for sure; you know you love me, xoxo - Gossip Girl.

    1. Thank you - I agree with you about the stylists, no matter how absurd the story lines got, the outfits were always amazing!
