Episode Synopsis: Oh, you know, the usual - teenagers trying to overthrow evil mustached men, some spendy shopping, a theme party, V & D (ha! VD!) are all angst-y over their 3 week old relationship... Nothing new here, kids. Move along.
Sigh. Just thinking about this episode puts me to sleep. Forgive me if I didn't bring the funny to this recap.
Let's start of with Serena. She appears to be in rubber.
Serena appears to be in rubber, and it's daytime.
Serena appears to be in rubber, and it's daytime, and she's wearing these shoes. No one questions any of this. This is how my world is different than that of Gossip Girl.
Let's go back to that photo of B & S, and focus on B. She doesn't seem particularly happy to be shopping with Mistress Serena, and is practically hiding behind her large Chanel tote and navy coat.
There weren't many costume changes this episode, as it takes place in the span of about 12 hours, so let's have a better look at Blair's dress. Don't like. She's dressed like an ineffective disco ball.
This coat, however, with the frilly panniers? Like.
This Matthew Williamson gown? Like very much. It strikes me as something Audrey Hepburn would wear in the mid 1960s. In fact, I think it calls for a very high, rather elaborate updo.
Detail of the dress. Don't look so sad, Blair-bear! You might be offering yourself up as a sacrificial lamb, but you're a stylish sacrificial lamb!
