Gossip Girl Fashion Breakdown: The Ex-Files

at . Comments

This week's episode of Gossip Girl, "The Ex-Files," was tremendous in just about every way - not the least of which was its fashion! What kind of school would allow uniforms like these? An awesome school, that's what. But anyway ...

Our Gossip Girl fashion contributor, the fabulous Liza L., breaks down the episode's couture in her weekly column below ...


In this episode, Blair uses a beautiful selection of accessories to add to her school uniform, one of which is a beautiful Jennifer Behr headband ($525, here), worn with a Chanel cape (presumably). In this picture, she adds the flavour with a gorgeous Chanel scarf.

Serena, on the other hand, dresses it all down – simply sexy: French Toast Plaid Pleated Skirt  ($15, here) and French Toast Plaid Full Make Tie ($4, here).

But even if Blair is Queen B, and Serena is the most popular girl in NYC, the other girls are high-fliers as well. Look at Penelope's LAMB multi stirling bag ($495, here).

Serena's dress is amazing, the one she wears to her date with Dan and Amanda, 100% designer, but which one? And how much?


And I think Serena's shoes are Anne Klien


I am positive Blair's handbag is Marni.


hi GG i wanna see the NEWW¡¡¡¡ season


lmao. i love how blair's outfit's so expensive, but serena's is nice and cheap, but both look totally amazing. xD


I'm looking for Dan's messenger too...anybody know who makes it??


Can u help me out in finding the messenger bag Dan was wearing with a suit on, in 'New Haven can wait'. They show the brand at 27th minute (34th second) of the episode. BUT I have it on Itunes which is not clear enough !! Please, please help your fellow GG. I would owe you a mega-Ton if anybody lets me know Aizey (Boston)


Does anyone know the make of Blair's read handbag at the end of the episode? Some have said it's Gianfraco Ferre but I searched and searched and it's not sold anywhere? Is it maybe another brand?


Thank you!


actually wrong again. apparently the headband is made by Susan Daniels but Blair's just had brass wiring. i dunno...they still kind look different to me. Susan Daniels should start making them with the brass wire cos I think it looks better.

Gossip Girl Quotes

Serena: It doesn't make sense!
Blair: Feelings never do. They get you all confused. Then they drive you around for hours before they drop you right back where you started.

We make our own fortunes, and call them fate. And what better excuse to choose a path than to insist it's our destiny? But at the end of the day, we all have to live with our choices ... no matter who's looking over our shoulder.
