Ladies and gentlemen, allow us to present: Vera Wang’s “Esther” from the Fall 2010 collection!
We polled you yesterday to see which rumored gown you thought matched Blair’s (Leighton Meester) now-infamous runaway bride pics best, and now InStyle has confirmed with the CW that the gown is, in fact, a Vera Wang design.
The gorgeous a-line dress gets its whimsical edge from the multi-layered Chantilly lace applique and its regal full skirt. Blair’s ivory version ― not white; let’s not forget she’s a mama-to-be ― keeps the horsehair sash at the waist, but drops the lace overlay that the gown walked the runway with originally.
B’s also added some peep-toe pumps to the mix, along with that amazing tiara atop her auburn tresses. And let’s face it, if she is a runaway bride, this might be her only shot to shine in a freakin’ tiara. (Or, well, maybe her second shot...).
Now that we have this mystery solved, we’re still wondering what B is doing while in this fantastic dress! And where exactly is she hiding that baby bump??? So many questions still unanswered...
