This week Gossip Girl the complete series and season 6 is released on DVD and to commiserate and to celebrate the end of an era of one of my favourite TV shows, Gossip Girl I have decided to put ‘Queen B’, Blair Waldorf up against ‘It Girl’, Serena van der Woodsen in a Fash-Off for the six seasons.
When it comes to fashionable TV shows I think only Sex and the City could rival the gang from the Upper East Side and these are some of my favourite looks from the show.
It is hard to choose between preppy Blair, complete with her signature headband and a glam Serena in a gorgeous gold Pamela Dennis couture gown. But I think round one goes to Blair.
For season 2 I have gone for a fun, prim and proper Alice + Olivia dress for Blair, I love the pink belt, and Serena is working a her skinny jeans, pinstripe blazer and knee-high boots. Round 2 has to go to Serena – this is a chic daywear look.
At Rufus’ wedding both Serena and Blair look incredible – which gets your vote – Serena’s strapless J. Mendel dress or Blair’s exquisitely embroidered Red Valentino? I am going to have to give this to Blair.
Another season, another couple of amazing frocks. We have Blair looking drop dead gorgeous in a red Oscar de la Renta gown and Serena in a steel grey Zuhair Murad lace dress. Both are amazing, but I love the lace design of Serena – so round 4 to her.
I couldn’t do a fashion feature and not include Blair’s Vera Wang wedding dress, the layers and layers of embroidered lace was spectacular, but does it beat Serena wearing British-based designer Mary Katrantzou? I am going to have to say, yes, just!!!
All about the wedding dresses – but who do you prefer Blair’s embellished Elie Saab or Serena’s dramatic Georges Chakra? I am going to have to call this one a tie – as both are so perfect for each character.
Who is your favourite Blair or Serena?
