Gossip Girl Fashion Recap: An Episode to Forget?

by at . Comments

Six weeks in the making, the thought on everyone’s mind during "The End of the Affair" was, undoubtedly, “WHAT?” We've examined the episode in detail in our review and Round Table. Now let's talk Gossip Girl fashion!

It was hard to focus with a puppy-faced Blair, a bewildered Chuck, and a secret-filled-fro that is Dan, but we managed. An odd-fitting wedding dress, a horrid sequined sweater, and one-to-many fascinators fill out this week’s recap!

Let's get down to business ...

B Opening Scene

Back from France and looking fierce in head-to-toe McQ, Blair tries to hide her feelings behind some powerful duds, too bad Chuck knows something’s up.

Blair’s Actual Blazer: McQ Trompe l'Oeil Blazer (vest inset)

Blair’s Actual Dress: McQ Lace Dress

Steal Dress: Motel Elsa Rose Lace Dress

S Opening Scene

Shocker, Serena is decked out in sequins and on New Year’s Eve, nonetheless. We like this sparkler look though, a full taffeta skirt and mismatched prints is definitely edgy and fashion forward. Go, S!

Actual Dress: Alice + Olivia Stacey Dress

Steal Dress: Susana Monaco Sequin Mini in Birch

Actual Cardigan: Augden NY Brittany Cropped Cardigan

Steal Cardigan: Autumn Cashmere Sailor Stripe Cardigan

B Mustard

There’s a whole ‘lotta mustard going on in this look. Though that cape is divine in all its utilitarian glory and those Miu Miu pumps are to die for, there’s something about it that screams ... pickle? What is going on with that pillbox fascinator; it can’t save that limp hair, B. Sorry.

Actual Cape: Gryphon Combo Sherlock Cape

Steal: Tracy Reese Runway Cape

Actual Top: Diane Von Furstenberg Trelodie Top

Steal Top: Alice + Olivia Arie Tie Collar Blouse

Actual Pump: Miu Miu Patent Platform Loafer Pumps

Steal Pump: Chinese Laundry “Next to Me” Pumps

Blair's Wedding Dress

How sad were we when we learned that our girl BW won’t be wearing this “custom” Vera Wang on her actual big day? Pretty damn upset. However, a dress this perfect and so true to her style should only be worn for the right groom - and who might that be? Side Note: How was Blair supposed to wear this dress if she was supposed to be pregnant still? That isn’t empire cut, we’re just saying.

Actual Wedding Dress: Vera Wang Gisele Spring 2011

Steal Wedding Dress: Reem Acra Virtue Gown

Blair on the Street

Fascinator alert! Cream all around screams bride-to-be, but this betrothed beauty is anything but blushing with happiness. It’s too bad since that coat is beyond chic.

Actual Coat: Diane von Furstenberg Mikhaila Wool Coat

Steal Coat: Nanette Lepore Napa Valley Coat in Cream

Blair Party Scene

A rosy rosette sleeved shift is essential for a romantic night out, especially to ring in the New Year with your fiancée. Riggggggghhht. Keep telling yourself that, B.

Actual Dress: Naeem Khan Rosette Dress

Steal Dress: Nightcap Victorian Lace Deep V Cap Sleeve Dress

The Maid of Honor

And Serena drops the sparkle ball. What happened here? No one knows, usually S kills it when dressing for her weekly UES bash. Where this should scream “night to remember,” it chokes and says “office work party.” Ouch.

Actual Dress: Lorena Sarbu Sequin Scallop Dress

Steal Dress: Free People Chevron Sweater Dress

I hope after the 100th, we NEVER see another fascinator or odd hat on GG again. I understand that the designers (like the writers, sigh) were inspired by the British royal wedding. But darn it, this is New York! The seat cushion on Blair's head in the last ep was inexcusable. I did like both Blair's and Serena's NYE dresses. People have criticized Serena's for being too short, but I think Blake pulled it off.
