It seems like just yesterday that I was in college and eagerly awaiting the next hit CW show from Josh Schwartz and co. After all, I had spent years with Ryan, Seth, Marissa, and Summer (before they jumped the shark and Marissa got annoying), and I was so so so excited to see the visual representation of Cecily von Ziesgar’s titular characters.
Kind of like The OC, Gossip Girl was initially a huge hit, but later seasons were lackluster. With GG’s final season fast approaching, I figured I would take a walk back through why I initially loved this show.
Sure, the plot, the acting–but, gosh, the clothes! Seasons One and Two produced some truly epic outfits–and I still define my style as Season One Blair Waldorf meets Dita von Teese.
I know this was done to death a few years ago, but some of these outfits are just too good to forget.
Our first glimpse of Serena.
And the first of (many) iconic school-girl prep looks from Blair.
