Well, the good news is that Chuck (Ed Westwick) and Blair (Leighton Meester) are alive and well. The bad news is that they’re not together, courtesy of a pesky little promise that Blair made to God that she’d marry Louis (Hugo Becker). On the bright side, we got to revisit all those tearful ER scenes in brief flashbacks, so we’re able to bring you a fashion recap that doesn’t include hospital gowns. Let’s see who’s at the head of the pack in Season 5, Episode 11: “The End of the Affair?"!

Hot: Serena Gets It Right

We all know that Serena (Blake Lively) loves her sparkles, and at The Spectator New Year’s Eve party, they were perfectly spot-on and event-appropriate — finally! It’ll be another year of daytime glitter until they pull off this feat again, so enjoy this while it lasts.

Hot: Chuck’s Checks

It’s comforting to know that this recent bout of Blairlessness hasn’t affected Chuck’s stellar style sense. Here, he rocks checks like a champ, unlike a certain Brooklynite we can think of...

Not: Dan’s Repeat Performance

It feels like Dan (Penn Badgley) has been wearing slightly varied iterations of this same outfit for the past three years. Would it kill him to try an interesting color or a bold print?
