Gossip Girl goes back to the Eighties

11 May 2009


We've always known that Gossip Girl was way up there in the sartorial stakes, especially when every week Blair and Serena treat us to an Upper East Side fash-off that even Anna Wintour would be proud of. But with a flashback to the '80s in an upcoming episode, to a time when the Phillip Lims and Alexander Wangs of the world were still at primary school, there are some seriously funky choices coming from camp van der Woodsen. Going back to her teenage years, a young Lily – played by Brittany Snow – sacks off her preppy Ralph Lauren blazers in favour of some pretty rock'n'roll outfits. And oh how we love a good montage, because we're talking shoulder pads, tiered dresses, denim jackets and electric pink heels. But hang on a second, didn't we just see those ripped jeans strut their way down the Balmain catwalk? Looks like Lily van der Woodsen really is a style icon people, bring on the spin-off! [WWD]
