Gossip Girl Fashion Breakdown: "Bonfire of the Vanity"

by at . Comments

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.

Below, our Gossip Girl fashion contributor, the fabulous Liza L., breaks down the episode, telling us where we can get some of its amazing looks ...


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.

Probably you all noticed it before, but it is never late to state the following fact – Blair loves Marc Jacobs. Don’t believe me? Here’s the evidence:

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).

While scheming against Cyrus, Blair needs to wear something special, but classy: Cynthia Steffe skirt ($105, here) and top (here), and Manolo Blahnik shoes (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).

Serena and Blair Pic

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).

P.S. Oh, and of course, Jenny.

As a designer she knows that this season's trends are tartan and lace:

Tartan: Dolce & Gabbana Plaid Shirt dress ($545, here), Nine West Cuza, Ships shoes (here).

Lace: Out on the town, Agnes wears Christian Louboutin Sigourney Padded Bootie ($1,030, here), Mike and Chris jacket (here).

Jenny wears Lace Print Ruffle Ra Ra Dress from Topshop ($45, here), Steve Madden "Midory" in Khaki Suede Shoes ($133, here).

Blair's party outfit was gorgeous especially with her hair like that. The GG stylist people should put her hair up like that more often, it really suits her.


can someone tell me where to find that coat Serena's wearing in the last scene with Aaron. She was wearing it also on the pilot episode as well.


God if I only had $1,990 for that fabulous ruffle top!!


I LOVED Blair's Alice + Olivia dress!!

Gossip Girl Quotes

Rita: Luckily, Robin was working with me in New York this week and able to bring along a very special video of Blair.
Tiffany: What is it?
Penelope: A Jack Bass sex tape?
Tiffany: A Nelly Yuki snuff film?

It only takes one video to topple an entire career. If you don't believe me just YouTube Connie Chung piano.
