Big Screen Fashion: Gossip Girl

Tuesday, August 26, 2014
In movies and television shows clothes can be used to complete a character and to make a scene much more amazing. Fashion has the ability to transcend the catwalk not only to the sidewalk but also to the big and small screen. I've been using some of my summer days and nights to catch up on some of my favorite television series and movies. I've realized that part of the reason why a story or character is so memorable and beloved, is because what they wear helps the audience understand their points of view in a tangible way.

With all that being said, I wanted this week to look at the fashion of Gossip Girl and the impact that it  has made in defining the characters and publicizing popular trends.

Eric Daman (Costume Designer) really helped to shape the wardrobe for each character on the show. It’s like the wardrobe played a supporting role to each character and we all loved it. Some of my favorite characters S, B and little J more popularly know as Blair Waldorf ,Serena van der Woodsen and Jenny Humphrey to me epitomize the sense of style that a lot of girls both Brooklyn and Upper East Side can relate to. Lets start off by looking at their characters and some fashion trends that we all loved from the show.

Blake Lively as Serena van der Woodsen

Serena's style as define by Eric Daman is “Kate Moss effortless as if she just woke up and threw on her jean shorts that were on the ground and her $5,000 silk blouse”. Serena is the effortless beautiful party girl and socialite and her character is brought out even more by her style.


Leighton Meester as Blair Waldorf


Blair is the quintessential upper east side princess her style involves a lot of headbands and classy silhouettes. Blair is the one you don't want to mess with the same is true for her style


Taylor Momsen as Jenny Humphrey


Evolution is one thing i think about when it comes to Little J’s style she grew up before our eyes and our style showed her evolution. She went from Brooklyn Babe to Rocker to Upper East Side Queen B

There were a lot of other Trends highlighted throughout the show like Mixing Trends ( frowned upon) and Blair's signature colored leggings. To date , Gossip Girl is one of those shows that has inspired blooming Fashionistas both off and on screen.

What is your favorite "Fashion Forward" Show?
