Gossip Girl Fashion Breakdown: "Bonfire of the Vanity"
Last night's episode of Gossip Girl, "Bonfire of the Vanity," gave us not only Jenny's story line, but plenty of eye-opening fashion material to discuss.

What could be more stylish on the Upper East Side than the birthday of the Queen B herself? Perhaps only the preparation to this magnificent event.

Another preppy outfit, with a pink twist, both on skirt and shirt: Marc by Marc Jacobs Bright Plaid Skirt ($328, here), Alice & Olivia Ruffle-Front Ombre Tee ($198, here), and the dress in the same pattern – Marc by Marc Jacobs Scribble Houndstooth dress ($460, here).
Meanwhile, Serena (with THE bag of the episode) tries out the (technologically) carefree relationship with Aaron (here), Miu Miu Nappa Patch Tote ($1,572, here) and Edun Althea Sleevles Top ($215, here), jacket Gryphon (here).
My favorite dress of the episode was worn by Blair – a gorgeous Alice & Olivia Women’s Ombre Combo Trellis Print Dress ($440, here).
The party outfits were absolutely stunning – Blair in Bill Blass Flamenco Backless Blouse ($1,990, here) and Serena in Armani dress (similar, $269, here) were definitely the Gossip Girl fashion highlight of this particular episode.
Also, in Aaron's studio, Serena wore an Alexis Bittar Gray Baguette Necklace ($113, here).
