• The Gossip Girl Wedding: Vera Wang, Blush Pink & Dodgy Hair

    Gossip girl is one of my guilty pleasures ~ oh to live the life of a beautiful, leggy, upper Eastside teenager!

    The love lives of Serena, Blair, Dan, Chuck et al are tumultuous, slightly incestuous (would you date your best friend’s boyfriend or your step brother?) and endlessly entertaining!

    In Gossip Girl’s 100th episode, airing soon, Blair is all set to marry Prince Louis of Monaco in a fairy tale wedding fit for a princess. But wait…what about Chuck Bass, the love of her life?

    I’ve no doubt the writers will keep us guessing right up until the very end.

    These photos released today sure do…

    I wonder what Chuck has to say to the bride on the morning of her wedding?

    And just why is Blair sitting on her own in the getaway car?

    Aside from the twisted love lives of the Gossip girls, I love to watch Gossip Girl for the fashion. Serena’s eclectic style and boho hair are endlessly inspiring but it’s Blair’s ladylike, classic, Chanel chic outfits, coiffed hair and perfectly polished look that I truly adore.

    (Not that I can ever actually pull that look off myself but one must dare to dream!)

    So, needless to say, I was more than a little excited to see photos of Blair’s chic, New York wedding…

    Like a true NYC bride she wore a Vera Wang wedding dress* and it is, of course, exquisite. The big, sheer, bow detail is very ‘Blair’ and the delicate lace detailing on the A-line skirt adds a vintage touch. She opted for a blinging tiara and chapel length, tiered veil.

    The bridesmaids look tres chic in knee length, one shoulder blush pink dresses teamed with black sashes, sheer black tights and black heels. While maid of honour, Serena, steals the show in a slinky, full length gown with a corseted bodice and ruffly skirt. (I’m guessing these are also by Vera Wang.)

    Roses and fluffy peonies are a classic but beautiful choice with the bouquets finished off with silk ribbon wrapped around the stalks and tied into pretty bows. The groom, in his cream, white and gold miltary regalia bears a strong resemblance to Prince Charming.

    BUT what the deuce is going on with Blair’s hair?!

    Dry, straggly hair extensions for Blair Waldorf…? I think not. Neither does she.

    I’m bitterly disappointed considering the magnificent ‘Blair-dos’ that have gone before. Her bridal hairstyle is a definite hair-don’t! I know hair experts always say not to cut your hair too close to your wedding day but it looks like she hasn’t had a trim in YEARS!

    However, her beautiful, untraditional walk down the aisle with her biological and step fathers makes up for her hair faux pas. (Almost.) Such a lovely sentiment!

    What are your thoughts on the Gossip Girl wedding? Are you a fan of Blair’s w-day look?

    ps. Whatever happens, you should know I’m team ‘Chair’ all the way!

    * If you were reading this time last week you know just how I feel about Vera Wang.

    I don’t watch gossip girl, though I have friends that are obsessed, but this looks great…I might have to get into it just for the dress!! :)

    Totally my guilty pleasure too, but I’m more for Serena’s style-I love her maid of Honor Dress!! Love the Vera Wang, great choice for a NYC wedding…but the hair…..i agree. Sleek up-do would have done the trick!
    Great post Elizabeth x

    Oh my goodness… I’m a huge Gossip Girl fan. I love the MOH Dress! Gorgeous!

    I too love Blair’s style. I want to be her-in a style sense! I love her dress and Serena’s dress is to die for but I hate to agree with you that her hair isn’t exactly up to scratch. I see what they were going for but it’s just not quite slick enough.

    Argh! I’m so excited now Elizabeth – I LOVE GG and can’t wait to see it all, but if she ends up with Louis I will cry. 

    Chuck loves her! And she loves him! Come on people!

    I love Gossip Girl, I’m currently having terrible withdrawals! And this is just gorgeous. The dress, the peonies, the blush pink bridesmaids – I love it. I’m selfishly glad they only wrote in a wedding after I got engaged and started planning mine!

  • Woollymoomin

    p.s. I kind of agree about the hair, but if it’s good enough for K-Mid…

    Gossip Girl is my guilty pleasure too. I love the bridesmaid dresses (Serena definitely steals the show), Blair’s dress, the gorgeous flowers and of course Chuck. I am with you on Blair’s hair too.
    I’ve finally persuaded my husband to take me to New York in June, now I just need to try and sell the Gossip Girl tour to him!!

    This film looks like a traditional chick flick with fashion set to make your mouth water. I love the fairy-tale wedding dress with its layers of lace and ever so feminine and slightly quirky bridesmaid
    dresses.

  • Corkyingenue

    I strongly disagree with you. Her hair is amazing. So tastefully done. I want my hair that way when I marry. Everything else you said was great.

    As a hairdresser myself, I agree. Her hair extensions needed to be trimmed and look very hippie which is completely different than the glam look the rest of the wedding. It would have looked different if they ends were not so stringy.

    I just caught up with all the episodes of GG that I missed, and I completely agree with you about Blair’s hair! I kept thinking that she was going to have a last minute hair appointment with a beautiful french twist or braid. If Blair was a barefoot, hippie chick, I would understand, but she’s Blair Waldorf! I did love her dress, and the bridesmaids were over the top in true Upper East Side fashion. And, I’m a Chair fan, too.

    I suspect that they had to make something about her unattractive because she was not going to marry the love of her life. It was a subliminal message telling us that there is something else that is not quite right about this wedding. As and when she does marry the love of her life (please let it be Chuck), everything will be exquisite.

      An interesting theory, you might be onto something there! Let’s hope so! :)
