Last night, Gossip Girl celebrated it’s 100th episode with a party at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City. For once, I think both Leighton Meester and Blake Lively hit it out of the red-carpet-park.

Leighton wore an ecru Balmain strapless mini dress with a floaty skirt and great front-clasp details. Her Jimmy Choo sandals pulled the look together while keeping all eyes on the beautifully constructed dress.

Then we have Blake Lively in a bold dress from Marchesa Spring/Summer 2012. Elaborate embroidery and fringe presents the risk of looking overdressed, but works on Blake’s tall frame and easygoing beauty aesthetic. Paired with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Versace’s crystal embellished platform d’Orsay sandals, she looked absolutely beautiful.

Blair Waldorf Wedding Dress
Big spoiler. Of the best kind. Photos of Blair Waldorf’s wedding dress have finally surfaced. Though the Gossip Girl wedding doesn’t look too successful – Runaway Bride, much? – the dress is unbelievably gorgeous, as is Leighton Meester.

The fictional Queen of the Upper East Side was set to marry Prince Louis of Monaco in this strapless white wedding gown, which looks a lot like the “Emma” dress by Monique Lhuillier, so we can only assume she is the designer.

Blair Waldorf White Coat
This week, we have some seasonally appropriate choices for Leighton Meester StyleGossip Girl was filming winter NYC scenes!

On the first day, Miss Meester wore a lovely, belted Diane von Furstenberg ‘Mikhaila’ wool coat, the striking orange Loewe ‘Amazona’ satchel, DKNY floral tights, Badgley Mischka satin pumps, and a soft cream-coloured scarf. Transitioning away from headbands, her character also seems to be on a hat-wearing track…

Blair Waldorf Green Cape

…that continued through to her next ensemble! The succeeding day of shooting, Leighton Meester and Penn Badgley were spotted filming new scenes together. On this occasion, she wore a covetable Gryphon olive-green cape, a flared Alice + Olivia ‘Oshi’ boucle skirt, burgundy Miu Miu Mary Jane pumps, and a mustard necktie blouse to match her Fendi ‘Peekaboo’ bag. A MUST.

Beyonce Fake Pregnancy

  • I’m sure the only way you don’t know about this is if you purposefully avoid the news, but eh, I’m giving my two cents on the ‘Beyonce Fake Pregnancy‘ enchilada.

    Apparently, some reliable sources (aka everyone’s eyes) saw Beyonce’s baby bump shift and fold in two during an appearance on Sunday Night HD.

    The alleged prosthetic baby was pretty obvious as a fake. No belly – of that size – has the ability to do that. Even if made of fat.

    But riddle me this, instead of shouting ‘Beyonce is a Fake!’, might it be worth considering she would wear extra padding simply to avoid the media ‘bump watch’ that plagues most celebrity women?

  • Conde Nast have kicked it up a notch. The magazine moguls of Vogue and other major titles have decided to start developing television and online programming based on Conde Nast personalities, articles, and general brands. This entertainment division will be headed by Dawn Ostroff, the powerhouse that who helped develop major hits like Gossip Girl and America’s Next Top Model. Movies will also be a focus once it is off the ground. Hello, The September Issue 2!

  • The most – dare I say – famous blogger in the world has landed her second cover of L’Officiel! This time, Tavi Gevinson/Style Rookie landed the cover in the Netherlands, and was literally stretched to the style max with the help of stylist Alex Aikiu and legendary photographer Jean-Paul Goude.

  • You know the old phrase ‘starting off on the right foot’? Abdulkader Sankari and his son Ahmed don’t seem to. The duo recently bought fashion label Gianfranco Ferré. After which they didn’t attend the first meeting to discuss the brand’s relaunch under their ownership. Instead, they sent their lawyer. Woops.

  • Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend, Florence Brudenell-Bruce, is the new face Aspinal of London! A perfect – albeit slightly scandalous – pick.

  • Was anyone else a Girl Scout? I was – and it was absolutely legendary to me. I even remember my troop number (though, I still hold a grudge towards never actually ‘achieving’ my cooking badge). Anyway! The big news is that Girl Scouts are reinventing their badges for the first time since 1987.

    Seeyalata to the Fashion, Fitness and Makeup badge (quel horreur!) but a big hello to a Science of Style badge that has girls learn about nanotechnology in fabrics and the chemistry of sunscreens! They will also be introducing badges for locavore awareness, financial literacy, and website design. Can I sign up again?

  • The Victorias Secret Fashion Show has now become such a big deal, it has almost ended up as a Fashion Week in itself. This year, it is only being taken to bigger heights with both Kanye West and Maroon 5 as the musical guests! Interestingly, both Kanye and Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine are dating VS Angels. For Levine, its legs-a-million Anne Vyalitsyna. For West, it is ultra-model Chanel Iman. Quadruplet dance off in a glitter rainstorm, please?

  • Super Size Me‘s infamous documentary filmmaker, Morgan Spurlock, is no friend of Abercrombie and Fitch. When he approached the Californicated brand to sponsor his latest project, The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, the conversation went as described:

    “Trying to get brands on board for this film was bruising to my ego. Abercrombie & Fitch told me I was fat, ugly, pale and had the moustache of a pornographer so they weren’t going to sponsor my film.”

    Nice.

  • Leighton Meester On The Set Of 'Gossip Girl'
    As the latest season of Gossip Girl continues with filming, I am looking forward to seeing more and more of Blair Waldorf‘s stylishly prim ensembles before they hit the small screen. THe latest look (seen above) was comprised of a nude Moschino ruffle pearl tweed jacket, an Alberta Ferretti embellished neck-tie chiffon dress, Roger Vivier platform court heels, and the all-important Marc Jacobs quilted handbag.

    Leighton Meester Bangs

    My favourite look of the week, however, comes from Leighton Meester when she attended the “HTC Serves Up NYC” product launch event at the Highline Stages in New York City.

    Not only did Leighton wear the very first red carpet appearance of Marios Schwab‘s Resort 2012 collection (the long-sleeved black dress with the aquatic graphic-print skirt), but she also wore the Burberry Prorsum Resort 2012 tribal heels that showed up on the runway at London Fashion Week just this past Monday! Oh, closet lust, you are my inevitable downfall.
