Hey Upper East Siders. The MOD here. News just in that the big Gossip Girl-shaped hole we’ve had in our lives since the show left our screens in 2012 is about to be filled. Word on the street is Manhattan’s elite are back and ready to take their rightful place on the steps of the MET. But the questions on everybody’s lips are the same: will Serena and Blair return? Are two new women standing under the clock in Grand Central Station? Who are they wearing? That’s a secret HBO will never tell (well, not right now anyway) and while we’re not sure if GG will be the same without Serena Van Der Woodsen’s over-the-top sequin jackets or Blair Waldorf’s colour-pop princess coats, what better time for a revival than now?
We guess that if costume designer Eric Daman has anything to do with it, S & B will pay homage to their predecessors while adding some modern-day flair to their styling. I mean, imagine a world in which Serena van der Woodsen draped Paco Rabanne body chains over her patterned knits or paired snakeskin boots with cut-out leather. And as for B, her penchant for headbands would stand the test of time seven years on, especially when considered as an accessory to a puff-sleeved cocktail dress and feathered trophy bag. So whilst you patiently wait for the Gossip Girl updates to come in, here’s a look back on some of the show’s best looks, plus an educated guess as to what the pair might wear today…
You know you love them,
