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.
How did Blake Lively escape from the sea? I’m pretty sure I’ve seen her in my Disney favourite. Nevertheless, the new red hair looks absolutely gorgeous on the bombshell. Debuted last night at the party for the “Time 100 List“, she swapped her bright blonde locks for these fiery curls and paired the change with a mermaid-esque, seafoam Zuhair Murad gown. The dress was later stepped on by Patrick McMullan, causing the train to rip and a ushering a necessary safety-pin fix courtesy of Blake!
With her brunette dye job for “Green Lantern“, sunny Gossip Girl locks as Serena van der Woodsen, then this image change, how does she keep such phenomenal tresses?
At Fashion’s Night Out: The Show, Blake Lively – front row seat neighbour and BFF of Anna Wintour – wore a Marchesa Resort 2011 Geometric Print Embroidered Strapless Dress paired with Christian Louboutin Bibi Platform Pumps. My dear best friend is probably slitting her wrists over the hairstyle. She isn’t a fan of Lively ponytails. (And with such gorgeous hair, why would she be?)
Blair Waldorf is wearing jewelled headbands again! As I’m sure you know, season four of Gossip Girl starts September 13th with many questions in the balance – mainly being whether or not Chuck Bass is actually dead.
Thanks to an unidentified source, we have a sneak peak at episode 4.01 and 4.02 of the new series and the answer to Chuck’s death among other things. It’s worth a read even for the small snippets of fashion/set direction. SPOILERS BELOW (PICTURES OF SCRIPT).
Gossip Girl has been close to jumping the shark throughout season three. To be frank, there were too many plotlines, too many guest ‘stars’ (13 recurring, 6 pop-ins, and 4 cameos excluding the regular cast of 9?!), and too many episodes that lacked structure. It’s The O.C. all over again. Heads up, Josh Schwartz.
Luckily, the fashion remains near-perfect and the past two days of filming for season 4 in Paris show us exactly why. Blair Waldorf, played by the gorgeous Leighton Meester, rivals all other ensembles in my favourite Moschino dress of S/S 2010. Catch her, Blake Lively (Serena van der Woodsen), Ed Westwick (Chuck Bass) and the rest of the overprivileged Upper East Side starting Monday, September 13, 2010 at 9/8c on the CW.
