Look of the Week: Gossip Girl


Yes, you can call me obsessed but I don't care: I'm dying for Gossip Girl to begin. The new series from The CW looks insanely good plus I'm the biggest fan of the books and if this show is only half as deliciously addictive as the bestseller novels it will be my favorite series. It premieres next week so this week Über Chic's Back to School Look of the Week Extravaganza is all about the show and it's look. In this series about old East Coast money and young It girls, fashion is of course essential to the show. The costume designer of Gossip Girl will be Eric Daman who was an assistant to Patricia Field in Sex and the City.

"I feed off of the East Coast socialites -- Tinsley Mortimer, Lydia Hearst," says Daman, a former stylist for magazines such as i-D. "They're different than the L.A. girls, more cutting-edge. They go after the up-and-coming designers, like Alexander Wang and Vena Cava. Of course, you mix that up with the bigger houses like Chanel and Ferragamo, but these debs are getting the newest stuff all the time."

He also said that he likes to blend high and low pairing an ultra-luxe Goyard bag with an inexpensive shirt from Topshop, for example. Yes Goyard! I adore their print (especially the green one)!

The girls won't be the only ones with massive wardrobes though, the guys will also be fashion plates. I made a post about the guy's clothes a while ago, remember?

So the look is very preppy (like the school skirt) but with a twist, Blair's clothes seem to be very polished and proper while Serena has been given a more rocker vibe.

Well I cannot wait to see this series either. Plus it is directed by the legend himself, Josh Schwartz who brought us The OC.

I love that plaid coat with the asymmetrical buttons. Where is that from?

Romeika said...

It seems like a good series to follow, though i'm not sure if-and when "Gossip Girl" is premiering here in DK. But when it comes to these new series related to fashion & style somehow, the one i'm looking forward the most is "Cashmere Mafia".
