Gossip Girl Fashion: The Best and Worst From “The Kids Stay in the Picture”
The cliffhangers and twists and turns are back! But with a high-profile photo shoot on the horizon, it is prime time for the GG gang to turn it out style-wise. Unfortunately, not everyone rises to the occasion. Without further ado, here are the best and worst style moments from Season 4, Episode 18: “The Kids Stay in the Picture.”
Carol may have scoffed at the idea of doing a Dolce Vita theme for their family photo, but Serena (Blake Lively) goes for it in the end, looking like a modern day Anita Ekberg in her black evening dress and white fur.
Lily (Kelly Rutherford) follows suit, looking absolutely stunning in another simple black cocktail dress — of course, it probably helps that she has a full hair and makeup crew to help her look fantastic.
We haven’t seen Vanessa’s (Jessica Szohr) over-the-top bohemian style in a while — and she tones it down a bit upon her return to the Upper East Side — but the whole greyish-purplish ensemble is dullsville. Back to the drawing board, V!
We can see the family bond between Charlie (Kaylee DeFer) and Serena, at least in terms of style. Both blondes favor chunky sweaters, fitted bottoms, and woolen overcoats. But Charlie could benefit from spending some time with her older cousin, since her iteration of the look comes across as ill-fitting and, well, blah.
