It might be 2 years, 8 months and 22 days since Gossip Girl ended (who’s counting?), but the fashion storm that was Blair Waldorf is still fondly remembered and looked up to in reverence by every fashion girl, Upper East Sider or not. Perfectly played by Leighton Meester, Blair was everyone’s favourite mean girl, seemingly hatching ploys and plotting schemes, but just a lost child with a good heart on the inside.
Our favourite part about the character though, was her preppy, elegant wardrobe! With Grace Kelly as her spirit guide and Audrey Hepburn as her fashion role model, Blair’s style was gorgeous and charming beyond words. Frilly summer dresses, signature stockings, bags in every shape, scarves, trench coats to die for, pastel skirts galore, the most beautiful embellished gowns – and of course, those signature statement headbands that finished every outfit in perfect character – the girl had one covetable wardrobe, thanks to costume designer Eric Daman.
With six hit seasons filled with New York street looks and stunning designer garb, we can’t help but reminisce the huge style inspiration that Blair Waldorf was. So here’s a roundup of our fave looks from the beauty’s winning sartorial escapades. You’ll be our #WomanCrush any day of the week, B!
