The first book in the Gossip Girl series
The cast of the Gossip Girl TV show in all their glory.
You guys must watch this clip! It looks so dramatic!
So I totally know that this is nothing fashion-reated but I'm not sure if I've been off the planet lately or whatever but I just found out that there is a TV show based on the series Gossip Girl!! Oh my god I am so excited! I love the series= amazing. Not to mention that this series will finally put a face(s) to the characters in the books because on the covers, there are people (I'm guessing models) but their eyes are never captured so you are kind of seeing half of a face...mysterious don't you think?? But anyway...if you haven't read the books you need to- they are so good!
And I will admit that the titles alone are just like begging you to read the books! Seriously- who isn't going to be interested in a book titled "You Know You Love Me" or "Nobody Does It Better"?
Ok so those were just a few of my favs but look out for the show which is coming SEPTEMBER 1ST on the CW!!!! (well sep. 1 was the last date I heard but that is so soon!!!)
And here are some other pictures that I thought were kind of cool...
Ok so Blair (Leighton Meester) looks wayyyy better in this picture than she did for the promo shots below. I mean now she looks a lot more like the Blair I imagined.
It's really stupid but I thought that just for fun I would create an outfit for each of the main characters just to represent their personality and all. I really based the clothes on their budgets in the series so that accounts for all the WAY overpriced clothes/shoes/bags that Serena and Blair will be wearing...hope you like it!
Blake Lively as Serena van der Woodsen
Cast pretty well but I will admit that it is pretty hard to find a girl who is supposed to be like the hottest girl on the planet, I mean I can kind of get their dilema. But I really liked her in Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants (a movie which almost everyone needs to see just to see it) and I think that she's a really good actress.
If I were Serena I would wear:
Goodworth double-breasted jacket by Burberry $995
Wide Neck Voile Blouse by Chloé $1370
Cigarette leg jeans by JBrand $170
Edith leather shoulder bag by Chloé $1490
Embellished ballet pumps by Miu Miu $550
Leighton Meester as Blair Waldorf
Not exactly how I pictured Blair but I think that she looks way better in the pictures above.
If I were Blair I would wear (nice rhyme huh?):
Tweed Fitted Jacket by Marc Jacobs $2900
Athe Cap Sleeve Top by Vanessa Bruno $372
Chiffon mini skirt by Roberto Cavalli $1550
Black Patent Leather Ballet Flat by Sigerson Morrison $395
Ramona leather tote by Jimmy Choo $1850
Taylor Momsen as Jenny Humphrey
She looks really young in this picture- I think that she may be 13...and doesn't look at all like what I pictured Jenny to look like. I mean what ever happened to the brown hair and like big boobs? I pictured her like the girl on the cover of the It Girl series.
See? Much better.
If I were Jenny, I would wear:
Hopsack Jacket by Rebecca Taylor $284
Belted Tunic by Generra $165
Leggy Sterling Wash Jean by Rich & Skinny $165
Dolce Vita Shine On Hurache $68
Canvas Faridah Bag by Marc by Marc Jacobs $328
Chace Crawford as Nate
Eww I'm sorry but he is not what I expected Nate to look like. Nate was supposed to be hot. I mean this guy just looks like he went to the salon to get his eyebrows done AND hair highlighted. I mean is he bi or something?
Yes well and I couldn't exactly think of a menswear outfit since I am not an expert on mens fashion but for Nate: khakis, 20 year old polos, sperry's... you get the idea.
Just as a side note, my other favorite series, The A-List is apparently coming out in a movie! I looked everywhere online and there is absolutely no information on it but check back because I'll make a post as soon as I hear something about it.
The first book in the A-List series.
Sorry that was such a long and ramblig post!
