The Gossip Girl episode "Woman On the Verge" was full of family drama and revenge plotting, and was also a feast for Gossip Girl fashion fans.
Below, our Gossip Girl fashion contributor, the fabulous Liza L., breaks down the episode, telling you where you can get its amazing looks ...
It's easy to see where Serena gets not only her good looks, but also her amazing fashion sense (it might be genetics) – her mother, Lily van der Woodsen.
Serena looked stunning as always in an Alberta Ferretti dress (unfortunately sold out – but keep your eyes open it might appear in some sales or vintage sections) and Van Clef and Arpels jewellery (Alhambra Vintage collection – yellow gold and mother-of-pearl, possible to get a similar one here).
Talking about genetics (or her mother’s influence) Serena abandons her usual ‘I-just-found-this-item-two-seconds-ago-somewhere-and-still-managed-to-look-better-than-anyone-in-Manhattan’ and puts on an amazingly chic Lavender label Vera Wang strapless satin gown ($413 on sale, available here).
The outfits in this episode have a slightly magically medieval feel to them – above, Serena put on her golden shiny armour in preparation to the battle with the Evil Georgina, while Blair (the only parallel could be with Magician Merlin) decided to chose a more modest outfit of a mastermind behind the plan.
Serena: Gryphon Shrunken patent pea coat ($506, here) or Burberry London Gold Single Breasted Trench Coat (on sale here, however currently unavailable). Loeffler Randall bib dress ($197, here); Katherine Kwei Teresa knot lambskin hobo Nieman Marcus ($860, here); Gemma Redux Lariat necklace, $640 (here).
Meanwhile, special guest star Lisa Loeb wore a Lewis Cho Pintucked striped dress ($209, on sale here). Vanessa stays true to her unique style with Truly Madly Deeply t-shirt ($28, here), selection of similar from Urban Outfitters (here), Bracelet Forever 21 (unfortunately sold out, similar here), sweater/cardigan H&M.
Non-Judging Breakfast Club
In this Mustard Colour Dress from Marc by Marc Jacobs (unfortunately from SS07) B catches the eye of both her ex-boyfriends, if only for a second...
For a late night person such as Georgina Sparks, there is a need to look perfect in the morning, in case she needs to – this is wisely done by covering the tired eyes with shades and accessorizing the outfit with fun stuff, like bags and scarf.
Lauren Moffatt Ruffle Neck Top ($286, here); Valentino patent leather histoire ($11,795, here); Casadei women’s 6653 high heel ankle ($609, here), Cheap Monday tight Jean in Green Grey ($65, here); Tom Ford Aviator ($184, here).
In reference to the comments from last week's Gossip Girl fashion column, if you meant Serena’s bag in this picture it is a Chanel Executive / the Cerf bag ($2,125, here), however Serena’s is crocodile or alligator (here).
