On The Gossip Girl Set With Leighton Meester In Oscar de la Renta


 Whilst Blake Lively as Serena van der Woodsen has been sporting an eclectic mix of styles and designers in Paris whilst shooting the 4th season of ‘Gossip Girl’, it looks like Leighton Meester as Blair Waldorf only has eyes for Oscar.
Blair has been wearing many Oscar de la Renta Spring 2010 and Pre-Fall 2010 looks whilst on set.

The famous Avenue Montaigne was the backdrop for a scene where Blair is wearing an orange Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2010 organza pleated strapless gown with a rise and fall hem.

Leighton is wearing flip flops in this picture – between takes – but in the pictures below you can see she’s wearing Christian Louboutin bow sandals.
I love the sweet romanticism of the gown, but the fuchsia pink Roger Vivier clutch pops way too much which I find distracting.

Blake and Leighton were spotted filming outside the Chanel store on Avenue Montaigne in Paris.

Blake was wearing the Suno pants, Dries van Noten heels and Fendi ‘peekaboo’ bag look we saw last week. But it’s Leighton in the forefront of this picture wearing an Oscar de la Renta Spring 2010 dress.

The peachy chiffon sleeveless mini dress has a cute ruffled skirt and an embroidered waistband.

Her orange Nancy Gonzalez bag and Christian Louboutin heels perfectly complement her floaty dress.


Next up was a lime green safari-esqe Oscar de la Renta Spring 2010 look consisting of a sleeveless jacket and shorts.
The white cotton eyelet trim makes the look ultra feminine, and so very Blair.
The only thing missing is Blair headbands from all these looks, but I guess she’s evolved past that look.











Blair Waldorf in Hervé Léger
In one of the Gossip Girl episodes called “The Grandfather”, Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) wore an unusually sexy, figure-hugging Hervé Léger bandage mini dress with white criss cross inlays. However, Blair’s risqué dress was tamed with a cute beige embellished Joie cardigan and a cute nautical Tomassini necklace.


Setting new trends everyday, her ladylike style is sophisticated, elegant, and sexy all at the same time. No one since Carrie Bradshaw has had an impact on the fashion world through a TV screen.



Dresses: Red Dress, Cream & Gold Dress, Patterned Dress
Blair’s dresses are colorful, fitted, short and feminine. She wears sexy dresses, but always leaves something to the imagination. Her style is characterized by the amount of detail in the clothing items, which these dresses also posses.

Blouses in style of Blair
Here are some, that I’m sure she’d love to wear:








Blouses: White Blouse, Orange Blouse, Blue Blouse
Blair’s silky, beautiful blouses are very different. They’re far from boring and full of details. Ruffles, bows, prints, unusual collars, buttons, belts and so on make them very Blair! Choose soft and feminine materials like silk and chiffon to get the feminine look.

Girly Details
Blair is a total girly-girl at heart, and because of this, she loves to incorporate feminine touches like lace, bows, and ruffles, into her outfits. This is also her go-to look for formal events and parties.



Cardigans
Blair wears cardigans a lot. Here are some in her style:


Cardigans:  Black/White Cardigan, Gray Cardigan, Short Cardigan

 
Cardigans have always been very ladylike. They’re good if you need to be a bit warmer, hide your arms or cover up your cleavage a little. All in all, cardigans are a great way to either dress up or dress down an outfit. If you’re going for Blair’s ultra feminine style, choose shorter cardigans with long or 3/4 sleeves with some detailing like on the picture.

A pair of classical Mary Janes is a must have in your wardrobe if you want to achieve the Blair Waldorf style. These shoes have been around for many, many years and they never go out of style! As I said earlier, Blair is not afraid of colour, so the colour of the shoe is all up to your imagination!
