While the much-hyped season-end may have felt like a letdown, there was still a healthy helping of scandal, sex, scurrilous behavior...and of course style. Here are some of the most eyecatching outfits:
Real-life heiress Lydia Hearst as Amelia the - what else - interior decorator in a Robin dress, Foley + Corinna Jet Setter Jr. Tote bag in Sandstone, Chanel necklace and fierce-fierce-fierce gladiators by Sigerson Morrison. (Update: Be sure to check out our latest GG fash dish - getting Gossip Girl fashion inspiration from the new Bass/van der Woodsen apartment, Gossip Girl fashion & style for less, and Tinsley Mortimer to appear on Gossip Girl)
Blair and Serena went floral for the wedding...a perfect choice for ritzy afternoon nuptials:
- Blair looks sugary-sweet in this floral-print bubble hem frock from Colette Dinnigan Resort 2008 & Jennifer Behr patent-leather orchid headband.
- Serena's head-to-toe Ralph Lauren gown probably worked better on the runway because the model is, well, flat-chested. (runway photo: style.com)
- Chuck Bass may be an arrogant ass, but this is how a girl should rock khakis: with a patterned knitwear vest, classic yellow oxford buttondown and chic two-toned loafer. Try this boy's Fair Isle 100% cotton sweater vest in a size 16 or a Large from LandsEnd.com, a yellow boy's school-uniform oxford, and classic preppy two-toned Sperry Bahama topsider boat shoe.
- A clever way to keep your skinny jeans fresh is with a classic bag, charcoal tank and cropped cocoon jacket (get the look with Moschino Cheap & Chic sequin version).
