In honor of the 10th anniversary of the Greatest Show Ever, let’s take a look at Blair Waldorf. Serena may have been Sunshine Barbie, but Blair was the one we cheered for, and whose clothes we could actually picture ourselves wearing. Blair’s wardrobe was stylized, prim, and perfect, like Audrey Hepburn if Audrey Hepburn were a sexy Pilgrim. We loved it — well, mostly. Here’s everything Queen B ever wore. (And here’s Serena’s post.)

 

“Pilot” 01×01

This alluring-yet-prim number that she wore to her mother’s party

…back when her mother was someone else.

0101_eleanor1.jpg

The Constance uniform, with primary accessories. And the steps of the Met. #iconic

This turtleneck (TURTLENECK!) for martinis with Serena. Sixteen year olds grabbing drinks at a bar…our first clue this was not the average teen soap.

This cardigan and blouse, which is possibly a loose interpretation of the CB uniform.

This teased hair, for her “Kiss on the Lips” party. I mean…Blair! With teased hair!

 

“The Wild Brunch” 01×02

This impractical sleepwear.

This lingerie, ideal for a bride on her wedding night. Or a sixteen year old on a Saturday morning.

This eyelet dress and a hair bow ripped from a gift package.

 

“Poison Ivy” 01×03

This ruffled shirt and bejeweled bow broach.

This cardigan and…dress? nightgown?

This super prim (and frankly, sort of scary) interpretation of the CB uniform

This suit, which I hated. Was I supposed to ask for an extension on my library books, or perhaps connecting gate information?

This redeeming navy and red shirt and cardi (paired with skinny jeans and green kitten heels, btw.)

 

“Bad News Blair” 01×04

This outfit, for the first-ever dream sequence.

This luxe navy and aqua nightgown and robe.

This beyond cute dress with saddle shoe-inspired stilettos.

This h-t cream ensemble, worn for lounging about her bedroom with girlfriends.

This retro-flavored Eleanor Waldorf Designs dress.

This dance team dress.

This slightly frumpy shirtdress.

This cute, but non-forgiving dress, worn for a fashion shoot with bestie/frenemy Serena.

 

“Dare Devil”  01×05

This schoolmarm suit, which Blair wore to plan her sleepover.

This beaded argyle sweater and sweet beige bow.

This can-can costume.

This bell-sleeved dress, for serving martinis at the sleepover.

This smudged lipstick and corresponding top, for pretending to be an Rx junkie.

 

“The Handmaiden’s Tale” 01×06

The very first appearance of Blair’s velvet robe!

These refreshingly normal shorts (shorts!), paired with a cardi and French blue shirt.

This dominatrix/Marie Antoinette situation.

 

“Victor/Victrola” 01×07

This gloriously rep-stripe edged blazer.

This flippy skirt and airy, sequin-dot cardigan

This Victorian-adjacent dress, picked out by Eleanor, for Blair’s “engagement” to Nate.

…and the cream negligee underneath, revealed in an onstage striptease for Chuck.

 

“Seventeen Candles” 01×08

This hat with veil, worn for church confessional.

…worn with a pencil skirt to end all pencil skirts.

This dreamy tule dress, worn for her seventeenth birthday party. Note empty space at her neckline, waiting to be filled by a diamond necklace.

 

“Blair Waldorf Must Pie!” 01×09

Flashback! This is what Blair wore for last year’s Thanksgiving bar-hopping. Look at that stick-straight hair.

Present day Blair, all growed up in curls and a silky dress.

Flashback!Blair’s Thanksgiving dinner dress…

…and this year’s Turkey Day dinner ensemble. One of our favorite Blair outfits ever, tbh

 

“Hi, Society” 01×10

GOD. Blair wears rich navy and red so well. Here’s her debutante ball rehearsal ensemble…or is it a reinterpreted C-B uniform?

Followed by maybe one of five times we’ve had a jeans sighting on either S or B.

There’s this lovely-enough plum dress…

Followed by this lovely-enough ivory eyelet dress for the debutante reception.

And lastly, Blair’s most important gown, until she gets married — her debutante gown. Which has an enormous bow perched on her shoulder, like a parrot.

 

“Roman Holiday” 01×11

Daddy’s coming home for Christmas! Blair and her candy canes couldn’t control their excitement.

You need to see her jeweled headband.

She wore this for forced merriment with her dad and his boyfriend.

And this monstrosity for Christmas Eve. It’s, like, a horrible, puffy ornament, topped with her worst headband ever.

And for Christmas morning, B channels Minnie Mouse.

 

“School Lies” 01×12

Continuing with the Minnie Mouse theme…

That verboten school pool party was followed by a parade of preppiness, which we’ll present here without further comment:

 

“A Thin Line Between Chuck and Nate” 01×13

This black patent leather (patent leather?  Really, Blair?) trench with those shoes that can’t decide if they’re boots or pumps. Clearly she was under severe emotional stress. Might have something to do with the pregnancy test in her right hand.

This pale lavender peignoir, the ruffles, the smocked bodice — it smacks of innocence.

This outfit with two coats, and a bag large enough to hold twins.

This matchy headband-coat action.

But the orange (and footless, btw) tights are an “oh honey, no.”

This navy and red dotted action (seeing a pattern!), which she wore to her SAT soiree for the Mean Girls.

Nothing says spying like argyle paired with a cape.

This simple blue and white striped silk kimono-inspired lounger is lovely, and lovely on Blair. But of course, she’s never fully dressed without a headband.

For the SAT itself, Blair went the super profesh route.

 

“All About My Brother” 01×16

This marvelous bag, which almost matched her headband.

And now for something completely different, a brown pencil skirt with a pewter shirt. At least the squad coordinates?

This killer queen lewk.

A lacy black peignoir and negligee, perfect for comforting your BFF who only just remembered that she possibly maybe killed her dealer.

 

“Woman on the Verge” 01×17

This full-on retro chic ensemble for a night of searching through every NYC club/bar/dive for the currently missing Serena. Note the brown studded headband.

Here, take another look at the mustard dress.

B continues the retro streak with this midnight blue beaded cocktail dress, worn for Lily’s rehearsal dinner.

 

“Much ‘I Do’ About Nothing” 01×18

Nothing gets Blair out of bed like a diabolical scheme! She mixes patterns effortlessly, combining a red and white patterned dress with a beige and green coat in a larger print. A red and green headband tops her wonderful hair, and a large yellow purse neatly pulls the ensemble together.

Did you love this or loathe it? The large flower concealing the halter neck along with the flower on her headband, the ribbon tie heels and the dress’ bubble skirt…it’s a lot of look.

This charming little number for Blair and Chuck’s doomed trip to Tuscany.

This ultimate summer chic outfit, in which she uttered her best line, ever.

“Damn that Motherchucker!”

This white-eyelet bandage dress, which might be the best she’s looked on this entire show.

This outfit was witness to yet another classic Blair line: “Three words, eight letters…”

 

“Never Been Marcused” 02×02

Utterly adorable in a yellow and ivory ruffled blouse and wide leg, high-waisted orange shorts.

Back in Manhattan, she’s in another creamisicle-reminiscent outfit. So sweet!

This toile printed bow. Assuming there’s a dress under there.

And then this babydoll nightie, which actually looks comfy.

This floaty silk peach blouse and straight locks.

Her favorite white transparent negligee with a sweet yet sexy lilac silk romper.

This olive green top and translucent amber bangle, worn during a dirty dream staring one motherchucker.

Back in the waking world, this ruffled nighty with textured roses. How is this comfortable sleepwear?

I know we’re comparing party wear to Constance wear, but I think we can see the inconsistencies.

Five years hence, Blair is gorgeous in an oyster cocktail gown, hosting her BFF’s completely unlikely home wedding.

At least the future looks good on B.

And that’s what Blair wore.

xoxo,

YKYLF
