Look-of-the-Day

leighton-meester-13-blake-lively-13Okay, we promise this whole week won’t be a love letter to Gossip Girl, but there is no better-dressed pair of private school students than Blair Waldorf & Serena van der Woodsen.  For “Back-to-School Week,” we’re counting down the best private school uniforms, and these two never disappoint.  There’s a bevy of different ways these girls wore their Constance Billard clothes throughout the teen hit, but this look best illustrates the girls’ different styles.  Blair (Leighton Meester) is always dressed like a lady – she loves the classics and never has a hair out of place, while Serena (Blake Lively) is more of a free spirit and casually sexy.  We actually forgot, but we featured this look before in April 2011, making this the 1st time we’ve repeated a Look-of-the-Day!  Blair is sporting her usual everyday look – a crisp, white button-down blouse, navy skirt and matching girly tie, but is also wearing a belted light blue princess coat, delicate black leather gloves and a silk head scarf.  She looks right out of 1950s high society.  Serena, on the other hand, is wearing a more up-to-date look of a cream cable-knit sweater, a camel-colored Roberto Cavalli leather jacket, suede boots, and a plaid skirt with a matching tie.  The loose hair, and not-perfectly-tied tie are indications that Miss van der Woodsen is always a little more laid back than her best friend (and very similar to Blake Lively’s real-life style!)blake-lively-14
