Gossip Girl: Blair vs Serena Fash-Off

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.

Season 1:

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.

Season 2:

GG season 2 Gossip Girl: Blair vs Serena Fash Off %tagFor 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.

Season 3:

GG season 3 Gossip Girl: Blair vs Serena Fash Off %tagAt 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.

Season 4:

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.

Season 5:

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!!!

Season 6:

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?

 

Gossip Girl: The Complete Season 6  and  Gossip Girl: The Complete Series are available to own now on DVD.

Bag Lust: The Heritage Bayswater Mulberry Satchel

BlakeMulberry Bag Lust: The Heritage Bayswater Mulberry Satchel %tag

You may have gathered by now that bags are kind of my thing, and lusting over them seems to be a full-time occupation. I am lucky enough to own a number of designer bags, but a Mulberry has alluded me so far, and maybe it is because I always seem to fall in love with the most expensive one!!

If only I was Blake Lively, she seems to have nearly all the Mulberry collection, and this gorgeous Heritage Bayswater Satchel in super-soft haircalf and ostrich is the latest one I have seen her carrying leaving the Gossip Girl set. There is a downside to crushing over this bag, it is a whopping £3,500, but I just love how it has been inspired from the Mulberry archives and those poacher-style straps are cute.

Do you have a favourite Mulberry style?

Blouse Loving: The Charlotte Pussybow From Hedonia

hedoniacharlotte Blouse Loving: The Charlotte Pussybow From Hedonia %tag

I am blaming the return of Gossip Girl for my love of prim and proper ladylike attire. I do have a slight addiction with Blair Waldorf, and I readily admit that I so what to be her, especially as I would be able to live in New York!!! Well taking a leaf out of Blair’s fabulous wardrobe I have found the most perfect pussybow blouse from fashion label Hedonia.

Blair and the Upper Eastside may have the spending power to pick up this gorgeous houndstooth Alexander McQueen (below), but if like me that is a little past your budget don’t worry as this one from Hedonia would not only look amazing on Blair, but it is also a bargain at £40.

The Charlotte pussybow blouse from Hedonia comes in two colours, ivory, or my favourite the retro satin print blouse – that orange and black zig zag pattern totally looks like it has come from the 70s.

What I love about this blouse, there is a lot: the puff-ball sleeves – super cute; the tailored fit; the choice of colours; the price; and the best bit has to be the fact that the pussybow tie is detachable – genius right, so for £40 you get two-looks-from-one-shirt – LOVE!!

Not only does this blouse look amazing with the Hedonia orange Rachel skirt, the high-waisted flare is so divine, but I think it would be look perfect paired with 70s-style flared jeans for a retro vibe. Or if going for the complete Blair look, just team with a classic pencil skirt and fishnet tights.

Met Gala 2011: Leighton Meester Goes Gothic

222958 10150588647040125 215138065124 18433448 3436339 n Met Gala 2011: Leighton Meester Goes Gothic %tag

Who: Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester

Where: At the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City

Wearing: A strapless corset Louis Vuitton dress made exclusively with cotton gros grain ribbons and leather bands and button detailing. Leighton finished off her look with LV lace-up booties and clutch.

Verdict: I love this head-to-toe Louis Vuitton look on Leighton, mainly because she always wears something different, and I am loving her gothic glam vibe. Also Leighton has to have one of the best hair looks for me as well, her sleeked back ponytail is perfect, shows off her statement earrings perfectly.

Spirit Awards: Michelle Trachtenberg in Pamella Roland

michellespirit Spirit Awards: Michelle Trachtenberg in Pamella Roland %tag

Who: Gossip Girl’s actress Michelle Trachtenberg

Where: At the 2011 Film Independent Spirit Awards hosted by Jameson Irish Whiskey at Santa Monica Beach

Wearing: A belted stone tile Pamella Roland jacquard coat dress with short pleated sleeves and back box pleat from the spring/summer 2011 collection, teamed with studded black booties, a gold clutch and a jewelled cocktail ring

Verdict: I actually like this look on her, part of me was like it is a little too conservative for the Spirit Awards, and the other half of me is saying well at least she stands out!

I love the stone tile print on this chic coat dress, it really is an elegant look for Michelle. Maybe her recent trip to New York Fashion Week helped her pick out this. I like that she has tried to make it more youthful with the studded booties and the jewelled ring, and her neutral make-up works perfectly.

Overall, not the best dressed, but I can appreciate where she was coming from, for me this is one of the best looks I have seen on her in a while.

Who: Gossip Girl star Jessica Szohr

Where: At the SoBe press event in New York, launching Jessica as the new SoBe Life Water skinsuit celeb, where Jessica is basically painted with bodypaint (see shots below)

Wearing: A black and white striped Alice +Olivia Emmie blouson sleeve dress from the Resort collection teamed with hot pink peep-toe heels

Verdict: OK so Jessica doesn’t give me the glam and high-end fashion that her co-stars Leighton Meester and Blake Lively do, but she really does always look chic and this dress is no exception. I do love stripes *can’t always pull them off*, and I absolutely love that she has paired black and white with hot pink, it is perfection. I would have however loved for her to do more with her hair as it just looks a little blah. Love the pink lippy though. You can always rely on Alice + Olivia for a cute dress!

Shop Her Style: This gorgeous dress is only $368 – perfect addition for a chic Rivera holiday I love it

Campaign Loving: Taking over from Ashley Greene, Jessica unleashed her inner lizard in Costa Rica, wearing nothing but a SoBe skinsuit to launch its new SoBe Lifewater with electrolytes. This sultry campaign will appear exclusively in the iconic Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, which hits newsstands in America on February 15.
