I am a big Gossip Girl fan. Whilst Season Three is going a bit awry storyline wise, and I'm over Little J's ridiculous ratty over bleached extensioned contrived rock chick look - I continue to adore Serena's wardrobe! Blair is working her own look, the faaaaar too stitched-up preppie crossed with Audrey Hepburn, which belies her little vixen character. And headbands - no. Leave them to girls under 5 please - or Paris Hilton.
S has the most covetable wardrobe, which is always consistent & in step with her character. For down time casual, the waist coat/jeans/boots look paired with that amazing Palomino mane is tousled chic.
Now that her character's left college, I'm missing the stylised private school uniform look - white shirt, tie & mini kilt paired with fabulous scarves and jewellery. However, the new more sophisticated look & designer dresses are to die for. For events like galas at the Met, the polo & debutante weddings, she is always poured into a designer gown that she wears with confidence, oozing sex - but not trash. Confidence is the #1 BEST accessory for a sexy dress - any sign of nerves - (i.e. head down, hunched shoulders, eyes to the floor, or worse - shrouding the outfit with a cardigan!!) - and the whole outfit is ruined.
GG Costumier Eric Daman explains his inspiration for Serena - which funnily enough, echoes my favourite look... "For Serena, she's very sexy and the sort of inspiration is Kate Moss. It's about being tousled, putting anything on and looking fabulous."
