Gossip Girl Fashion for Less: Blair’s Red Dress in Paris

by on Sunday, September 19th, 2010

The red ruffle dress Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) wears on Gossip Girl in Paris is by Oscar de la Renta. But, since getting that dress is both impossible and impractical, I went looking for something more wearable for your average gal. What I found was a modern red dress with ruffle detailing for under $30. More than reasonable. And it’s of European design! Dress like Blair Waldorf for less, it might not be so hard.

Blair also wears a necklace. Something sparkly will do. But with this dress’s neckline, the exact similar sort of circular necklace wouldn’t look right.

In her hand, Blair has a long purple clutch. I know that red and purple can look fun together, but DEAR GOD why did she have this purple clutch? It should be black or oh God, any other color. I’d take blue or yellow or anything else. I think the problem is that it’s not even purple. It’s a magenta – not quite a pink. It just clashes. I refused to do purple, and gave you a cool red clutch instead. (She’s also wearing flip flops. Since I haven’t seen the episode when I’m writing this, I have no clue if there’s a storyline plot that tells us why she’s dressed so oddly. If we never see her feet, maybe that’s why Leighton is wearing just black flip flops. Makes for a seriously odd photo, though!) So, let’s dress like Blair Waldorf for less! And step 1 for how to dress like Blair Waldorf for less? Just have a GOOD EYE For what looks expensive, even when it isn’t. Look for what’s on sale and you can find great stuff for less.

Gossip Girl Fashion for Less:

Pair this with a very Blair Waldorf attitude of loving romance, feeling tragic (and betrayed) and a splash of entitlement. You’ll do fine!
