Emmy disaster with the gossip girls

I’m a die-hard Gossip Girl fan so you can image how I felt when I saw the looks of Blake Lively and Leighton Meester at the Emmy Awards. In fact, more disappointed than when I found out that the show wasn’t nominated in any major categories.


Let’s start with Blake, who won a red dress from Versace Fall 2009 collection. The colour of the dress is gorgeous but tack on a sleeve and change the color to teal it pretty much looks like the dress she won to the Met Gala. Her make-up and Lara Croft hair (which looks painful) isn’t helping either. I know it’s no longer cool to be following ‘rule’ when it comes to fashion, but I really think the ‘boobs or legs’ rule is really worthwhile. Blake never chooses either boobs or legs, but both of them. I love Blake and believe that she has so much more potential. I hope some day she’ll turn around and choose something that is more flattering and classy because this is just overkill. On top of that her complexion (blonde, tanned) – it’s already such a cliché in itself.


If I have to choose I think Leighton looked slightly better than Blake did but I was a boring look for her. She wore a white Bottega Veneta Fall 2009 gown. The dress looked terrific on the runway but I don’t think it works on Leighton. Neither does the hair nor the make-up, which makes her look tired and old. I guess this dress needs more elegant hair and would have looked better on someone with a taller frame. I just wish Leighton had taken a risk and worn something more interesting like she usually does.

Yes, they are back! Gossip Girl has officially started filming episodes for the third season, which debuts September 14. I just can’t wait for the drama and the headbands. Oh did I mention I love Blair’s flowery dress in the pictures?

Update: I just found out the Blair’s dress is by Alice + Olivia and it’s currently on sale at Shopbop.com for $308.




Leighton Meester loves to take risks when comes to red carpet dressing. Sometimes, it doesn’t pay off (remember the Met Gala disaster), but when it does she really stands out from the rest. At the 2009 MTV Movie Awards, She wore an edgy cut-out Emilio De La Morena dress with Brian Atwood Brie purple suede ankle boots. With its sheer panels, folds, and cut-outs, this dress is not something Blair Waldorf would approve of. Yet, Leighton totally pulls it off. I just love how futuristic and sexy this comes off rather than trashy. And just wow, she has an amazing butt.
