Our favourite (OK, fictional, but still…) Upper East Siders have been taking over the NYC streets this week as they continue filming the latest season of Gossip Girl. As you all know, GG is all about the clothes, oh and the bags and the shoes and the jewellery... the entire wardrobes in fact! And no one gets better pick of the rails than Queen B (Blair) and her BFF Serena. So let's take a look at what they've both been rocking this week...
We're loving Blair's new grown-up look. Still present are the pearls and Alice bands that have become her signature style, but it's all very sophisticated rather than schoolgirl now. Pleated skirts and shift dresses have been replaced with cinched waists and elegant longer hemlines. We especially love Leighton Meester in one of Victoria Beckham's new red dresses, the knitted number by London-based designer Cooperative, and how much of a power-dresser does she look in this gold brocade Burberry Prorsum number?
Never one to be undone, Serena's look has also evolved. The bohemian princess is still staying true to her hippy-chic style – think billowing maxidresses (the one above is by Rag & Bone) and smock frocks – but is mixing them with tailored pieces like the tie-dye waistcoat and city shorts combo she was snapped in this week. Serena is also rocking some sleeker evening looks like the black Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent playsuit and show-stopping Dries Van Noten hero jacket – an outfit we'd expect to see on Blake Lively herself rather than Serena. Bring on series three, we say! It might not hit our screens until, well, who knows, it'll be a while, but at least we have the on-set fashion to keep us entertained until then.
