It might have been a coincidence that Blair encountered Chuck in Paris at the start of season four. But she definitely showed her former beau (long story short, he cheated, she left, he didn’t get to propose to her, and his ring got stolen after he got beaten up and shot by thugs — we know, drama) what he was missing when she sported this spectacular ruffled red dress from Oscar de la Renta, which she donned for a date with a French prince to a ball. Serena was not holding back with her style either — she went with an edgier, more androgynous vibe with a pair of striking electric blue culottes that was contrasted with a shimmering gold blazer that sported peaked shoulders and bejewelled pumps — nothing short of spectacular.
While Chuck and Blair’s (or Chair to you diehard GG fans) relationship was still in its infancy in season one, this scene perhaps alluded to a greater love story between the two. After all, both of them were decked out in the best and brightest spring colours — orange and yellow — and they looked harmoniously on point. If we didn’t know, we’d have thought they were twinning intentionally.
Remember those brief episodes when Blair and Dan Humphrey (spoiler alert: he is Gossip Girl) dated? Yeah, you probably didn’t as you were trying to suppress that storyline as a horrible memory. Be that as it may, we forgive Blair’s relationship choices, because how gorgeous does she look in this scene? This deep red dress with a sweetheart neckline and embellished shoulders plays up her porcelain-like skin and draws attention to her collarbone. It’s no wonder then that Lonely Boy wanted her.
A floral sun dress is a summer staple that everyone should and would have in their wardrobe, especially with Singapore’s tropical climate. While we’re not, erm, a big fan of the neck ruffles that come with Serena’s rendition, we like the flowy layered material and the cheerful print, not to mention the super sexy chest cut out that will amplify your assets. And if you want to give it that Upper East Side spin, pair it with a pair of black gloves like what Serena did for hers. Sure, it’s extra as heck, but it gives a touch of elegance and mystery that will certainly get heads turning.
There’s this perennial debate on whether you’re #TeamSerena or #TeamBlair. We’re more of a Serena stan, because her fashion choices are more eye-catching, experimental and stylish as heck. Case in point: For her wedding to Dan Humphrey during the season and series finale, she ditched the typical white dress and went with this strapless gold and white Georges Chakra couture gown that has adramatic train that can literally stop traffic. Too gorgeous. Don’t get us wrong, we’re also loving Blair’s to-die-for Elie Saab light blue lace wedding dress (spoiler alert again: she finally married Chuck!) in the same episode too, but Serena’s dress takes the crown when it comes to this episode’s wedding fashion face-off.
