Leighton Meester, Blair, Chuck, Ed Westwick Gossip Girl fashion, Season 2, S02E01, white party
American television network and movie studio Paramount Pictures kick started their new 90201 TV-Series this Monday in hopes of surfing on the same success enjoyed during the era when the original series featuring Tori Spelling was biggest TV-series on the planet. Not living up to the hype the pilot episode was a vegetable stew of various types of concepts we recognize from TV-series in the past without a new twist of any sort. Continuing on with the negativity the new 90201 is poorly directed capturing unconvincing actors who look like they are on their first casting. Neither was the choice of clothing anything that kept the adrenalin pumping throughout the episode. That can’t on the other hand be said about the latest episode of Gossip Girl.

Mischa Barton’s reign as the “it” girl has ended. Proportioned perfectly like a porcelain doll Leighton Meester shined brighter than the polar star during the second half of the episode. Dressed in a cute and adequately short dressed high lighting her slender legs the grace in the dauntingly neat appearance is amongst the best wardrobe styling ever broadcasted on television. When Edward Westwick appeared in the same colours as Meester one had a second reason to applaud the wardrobe stylist for the superb work.

Walking with a sinister gaze Westwick painted the perfection picture of how a man should look in an all white outfit. Unlike women men rarely ever wear white from toe to head, expect when we leave the shower in a robe or dress like `Karate Kid´ at Halloween. Thanks to “Miami Vice” and P.Diddy wearing an all white outfit is almost an impossibility without coming across as showy or flamboyant. Nobody wants to look politically incorrect at a public but thankfully we’ve been presented with a solution for looking socially acceptable in a bright saint-like outfit. An off-white suit with a black border on the collar mixed with subtle sunglasses hanging tastefully over the shirt has proved to be quite a striking combination, especially with a black scarf with white dots tied around the neck.

Westwick didn’t look less impressive when he and Meester shared a frame pausing time like a solar eclipse. Like two swans by the fountain at the castle of Versailles they made every other actor blur. Now drown your Thursday sorrows in these gorgeous screen caps.

Gossip girl!!! hhmmn,i dnt really want to express how i feel abt this show otherwise it might be misconstrued for advertising. but i'm glad to see a show that serves up a sartorial taste and also has a good storyline. most shows that have good fashion do not have strong plots but kudos to the producers of gossip girl, they got both right! And look out for ma man Ed westwick he's the bravest sartorially of the entire male cast.

Indeed, nice outfit on Westwick! When I did an interview with him a few months ago he seemed like a nice guy, though not giving away any real fashion tips. settled for flashing his 24/7 piece of clothing - the leather jacket. Penn Badgley (Dan) said he had "somehow grown fond of cashmere" and "pulling up the sleeves of everything" he's wearing since starting the show. it's the gossip girl way.

I think white can look good but I think only certain people can pull it off. Skinny and pale people it dose not suit. I like the blazer the guy is wearing though

Gossip Girl is definitely setting some trends. I'm seeing a lot of preppy influence in stores lately (think more Ben Sherman/Ralph Lauren not Abercrombie). Too bad white isn't typically a popular color this season especially after Labor Day, but with fashion you never know what might happen!

I love Gossip Girl and however sad it makes me sound, was so pleased that the new series is finally here. The show provides much style inspiration and I love the white in these outfits.

Steve: Yeah the TV-Series has become a style inspiration kind of like sex and the city, but for younger audience in their early 20s. Chuck and Blair are those I my eyes on, they always wear fabulous clothes.
