Another party, another tragedy, and some awful leather shorts.
Emotions aside (and believe us there are emotions), we’re here to talk about the lighter things from Gossip Girl's midseason finale - the fashion! In “Riding in Town Cars with Boys,” Chuck and Blair unknowingly matched ensembles yet again only to meet an unfortunate star-crossed lover fate that they must pull through together.
Meanwhile, a why-are-you-still-here Louis looked absolutely ridiculous in that suede robe jacket, Dan wore another damn flannel and tried to do the right thing while sipping on scotch (the bonding was effective!) and Serena wore some leather shorts that we’d rather not start talking about or we’ll never stop.
A bosomy Charlie choked the truth up to a botoxed Rufus and Lily stunned 'em again with two beautiful dresses and even more emotional scenes. NY Spectator Editor-in-Chief Nate looked in a sharp suit, but the man could be in a paper bag and look beautiful, so we’ll just leave that alone.
All in all, the planets seemed to be aligning last night and then suddenly were thrown off-course in large part to our new debutante, Chivy. That doesn't stop our favorite Upper East Siders from looking fabulous as always.
Let's break down their respective looks from Monday night ...
Serena: What was this outfit? What was this outfit? WHAT WAS THIS OUTFIT?
Actual Blouse: Leyendecker Turnout Blouse with Sequin Embellishment
Steal Blouse: American Retro Nude Leather Short
A bronzed Serena looks rather feminine and less vixen with that bow taking control of her goodies for a change.
Actual Cocktail Dress: Marchesa Ombre Fringed Dress
Steal Cocktail Dress: Tracy Reese Tessa Fringe Dress
With her trademark red lips and a simple, yet true-to-her-core dress, Blair was stunning through all of that sadness.
Actual Dress: Balenciaga Indienne Dress
Steal Dress: Diane von Furstenberg Yamika Jacket
Steal Sweater: Anne Taylor Loft Soft Shawl Collar Cardigan
Actual Shoes: Jimmy Choo Cosmic Suede Pumps
Steal Shoes: Chinese Laundry Huckster
Poised, polished and heading another debutante ball at an attempt to be a good mother/aunt. Keep on redeeming yourself, Lily.
Actual Dress: Luisa Beccaria Gold Wrap Dress
Steal Dress: MM6 Maison Martin Margiela Moto Jacket
Steal Jacket: Calvin Klein Cowl Neck Sweater Dress
She’s really a Serena doppelganger in that dress! Where Serena lacked last night, Chivy picked up the slack.
