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.
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.

This week, we have some seasonally appropriate choices for Leighton Meester Style – Gossip 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…
…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.
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.
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.
