Gossip Girl Fashion Spoilers! Costume Designer Says GG Style Will Come Full Circle
Serena (Blake Lively)’s yellow Jenny Packham dress in the Gossip Girl Season 6 premiere, “Gone Maybe Gone” put all the other yellow dresses in the whole world to shame. According to Gossip Girl costume designer Eric Daman, we can expect a whole bunch more amazing fashion moments in the final season of the chic show.
Besides dressing Serena in the beautiful designs we’ve come to expect her (and Blake Lively) to wear, Eric is also going to be bringing back a little bit of old school. And this little blast from the past (seasons) is all wrapped up in a pretty little headband. Yes, that’s right guys, the headbands are ba-ack.
We’ve missed the velveteen and floppy green bows and tiara-esque head decorations that topped Blair (Leighton Meester)’s pretty coif and fascinated us before “fascinators” were oh-so trendy. Eric told The Daily that the new versions will have a “grown up feel,” meaning that bows will be at a minimum (dang it!).
We owe a lot to Eric for dressing Nate (Chace Crawford) in beautiful suits and putting printed pocket scarfs in each of Chuck (Ed Westwick)’s carefully tailored “brutish, Wall Street” ensembles. Turns out, Blake owes a lot to this former Sex and the City costume designer, too, who introduced her to all the designers she now calls her BFFs. Besides gorgeous gowns, we’ll be seeing Serena in some short skirts evocative of her old school uniforms. Let’s just hope Eric leaves the knee socks behind...
