Yesterday the final ever episode of 'Gossip Girl' was aired in America, and shows in the UK on Wednesday. I've watched the show for years even though at times it has been the most shallow, unrealistic show with some very self-centred, could-be-deemed-sociopath characters.One thing you can't deny about the show though, is the amazing style of the characters, particularly Serena and Blair. So, to celebrate the final episode I've complied my top ten Gossip Girl looks, in no particular order.
1.Serena by the fountain
This is perhaps the prettiest dress ever created. Lace, beaded detail, a train and a waist highlighting sash make this a dream. Simple accessories are key.
2.The stages of Jenny
Ah, Jenny Humphery. Fresh faced innocent turned wannabe mean girl turned goth turned even meaner mean girl. You get the picture. And with the transformation of Jenny came the transformation of Jenny's style. This rock 'n' roll look is a personal favourite-particularly the severe, choppy haircut.
3.The most liberal uniform policy
Knee high boots, thigh high socks and stilettos were not part of my uniform policy I can tell you (believe me I once got sent home for wearing ankle boots-IN SIXTH FORM!!). The Constance Billard girls took full liberty when when it came to their choices like this laid back look.
4. Wedding Belles
Princess Blair has a ring to it. The day when Manhattan royalty became sort of real royalty was a fashionable affair. The runaway bride wore this dream dress, perfectly offsetting the drama of the dress with beachy waves and a flawless complexion.
5. Scene stealer
Wow. This dress is a work of art. The cut is perfect for Blake's statuesque frame and the attention to detail is nothing less than amazing.
6. The Parisian wardrobe
Blair and Serena's French fashion love affair was a delightful feast for eyes. As the girls ate macaroons and hopped on vespers with French boys just as delicious as those macaroons, they were adorned in the best of the best of French fashion.
7. Prim and proper
Blair Waldorf was nothing if not an impeccable dresser. Channelling classic looks, the accessories top of B's fabulous look, and her youthful glow prevents the dress from looking outdated on her.
8.Chuck, the dapper chap
One thing Gossip Girl brought us every week was Chuck's brooding face and colourful style. Because we all know that every man should have a little more Chuck in their wardrobe.
A defining moment of Serena's style was her love of coats. One of my favourites is this red and black checkered coat, perfect with suede boots.
10. Constance prep
The trend that sparked many wannabes, little J included, to don brightly coloured tights, cute flats, designer handbags and, of course, the signature headband was originally created by Queen B, and boy, does she do it better than the rest.
