As Gos­sip Girls turns ten, we cel­e­brate the most stylish series

Heat (UK) - - Spotted -

Im­por­tant news alert:

Gos­sip Girl re­cently turned ten years old (no, we can’t bloody be­lieve it, ei­ther) and we’re still to­tally ob­sessed with Ser­ena van der Wood­sen’s out­fits. The pro­tag­o­nist (played by Blake Lively) was sin­gle-hand­edly re­spon­si­ble for mak­ing us fall in love with boho again, and made our own wardrobes look se­ri­ously lame.

We also loved Blair Wal­dorf (Leighton Meester) and her pas­sion for hair­bands and bright tights, as well as Chuck Bass (Ed West­wick) in his dandy suits and cardi­gans – who knew we could fancy a man in a cardie? And re­mem­ber Tay­lor Mom­sen, who be­gan the show as a sweet­look­ing prep­ster and ended up dress­ing like a goth queen?

Those rich kids of New York’s Up­per East Side re­ally knew how to dress. Plus, it was ap­proved by the fash­ion heavy­weights, with guest ap­pear­ances from the likes of Tory Burch, Kar­lie Kloss, Tyra Banks and Vera Wang. But the ul­ti­mate nod of ap­proval? When Blake was cho­sen to sit next to US Vogue ed­i­tor Anna Win­tour at the Gucci show in 2013.

And it seems the show’s love of fash­ion taught Blake well, as the ac­tress once said, “All I need is my Chanel dress, my Louboutins and some red lip­stick.” Too right.

Fash­ion SPECIAL

“Se­ri­ously, though, how amaz­ing do we look?”
