Saying Goodbye to Gossip Girl: The Top 20 Fashion Moments That Made Us Envy Blair and Serena

GOSSIP GIRL

Tonight marks the Gossip Girl series finale. Cue mourning for the major loss of eye candy in the forms of Ed Westwick (Chuck), Chace Crawford (Nate), and Penn Badgley (Dan). But perhaps the biggest void that will result from the end of Gossip Girl is the fashion. When’s the next time we’re going to see entitled teenagers battling for social status in haute couture? The clothes of the show alone told you if you were a Blair or Serena (personally, I’m 100% Blair). We’ve seen them at cotillions, proms, weddings, beach parties, funerals, even in pajamas, and neither leading lady was dressed less than to impress. Some moments were purely about how good Blake Lively or Leighton Meester looked in these clothes, and others were about the major moments in the show where the clothes were a part of what took your breath away. So now, check out the top 20 fashion moments that made you wish you were Blair or Serena yourself.

15.  Blair after The Trade

This great Matthew Williamson dress is a major departure from Blair’s typically cover up couture giving her a more ethereal appearance. Unfortunately, it happens at the same time when Chuck trades her for his hotel.

For a theme party in Grandma CeCe’s honor, Serena rocks the 70′s look in a fierce DVF gown.

All of our hearts melted when Chuck created the perfect prom for Blair, including the magical gown she dreamed of since childhood.

When the Non-Judging Breakfast Club find where Serena’s been hiding out all summer, they expect to find her at her darkest point. They’re surprised to see her bright as sunshine with a dress to match. Is she getting married?!

 

11. Blair at Constance Billiard

We all know that the high school uniforms are what first caught the audience’s eye, and what sealed the deal was Blair’s declaration, “Tights are NOT pants!” Ironically, her pair of red tights is one of her most iconic accessories, second only to the headband.

    I think I’m going to miss Gossip Girl just for the fashion. A friend I work with at DISH and I have scrolled through episodes looking for outfit ideas quite a few times (I’m a Serena, she’s a Blair), and it’s sad to think those days are at an end. We’ll still be able to look through a few old episodes, though, because I have this season of Gossip Girl saved on my DISH Hopper. It can store 2000 hours of movies and shows, so it had plenty of room to save Gossip Girl’s entire season along with all my other shows.
