Oh Mon Dieu!
The second half of the fourth season of Gossip Girl resumed this week with yet another inconclusive tangle of hook ups and break ups and of course scandals and betrayals.
[Blair with Nate. Serena with Dan. Dan with Vanessa. Blair with Chuck. Chuck with Jenny. Nate with Serena. Vanessa with Nate. Jenny with Nate.] Did I miss one?
Now that everyone has practically hooked up with each other, at least there is still one thing keeping us from watching this show which is the FASHION! Thank god the writers are not in charge of the wardrobe! [*whew].
The season kicks off with Blair Waldorf and Serena Van Der Woodsen spending their summer vacation in Paris [ooo la la] and of course that means only one thing: pure fashion heaven. I fell madly in love with Eric Daman's [the costume designer of the show] ensembles for Blair and Serena. Blair was featured wearing a red Oscar De La Renta couture gown with Harry Winston jewelry and Serena wore this gold Emilio Pucci jacket with exaggerated shoulders and these royal blue trousers to match -- to quote Rachel Zoe, "I DIE." [Who btw was featured this season] And of course, Paris would not be complete without being showered with Chanel. Tons and tons of Chanel.
Season 4 then continues to follow the characters as they begin yet another fall semester at Columbia and NYU. And of course the life of the Upper East Side elites wouldn't be complete without all the lavish parties, galas, and benefits. But then again you don't really need an excuse to dress up when you're Blair Waldorf.
Here are some of the fashion of season 4 so far.
