MISS BRADSHAW IF YOU’RE NASTY:
The Carrie Diaries Style Evolution!
Spending her summer in the city for the first time with the only man she’s ever fallen in love with will definitely have an effect on a young ladies wardrobe! In Carrie Bradshaw’s case, Manhattan and Mr. Right are actually one and the same! Needless to say in season two Carrie’s going to see her fashionable self evolve forward. She’ll experiment with body-con, and other ’80s aspirational, au-courant, fast-fashion trends like crop tops, dresses with cutouts, and sheer blouses with bras peeking through from underneath.
GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN!
Samantha’s way atomic blonde way of dressing (her go-to accessories being wit and sass) will also have a distinct affect on Carrie.

#TUESDAYTREND: I GAVE @redbookmag TIPS ON A TREND YOU’LL LOVE http://bit.ly/180w6ww MIXING PRINTS A LA BLAIR WALDORF! XOXOE
Posted in Fashion on Gossip GIrl, HERE & NOW on August 20, 2013
VOILA BLAIR WALDORF:
Queen of the Paris Mix and Match!
I literally love her iconic style and fabulous print mixing savy. This mixed up Moschino ensemble is one of my favs! Delicieuse! She knows the ultimate secret to keeping her print mixing and matching looking savvy and sophisticated is to use discretion in how she pairs her pieces. She keeps the proportion of her patterns consistent, and keeps her tones together and her color palette controlled. She follows this rule all the way, with apropos accessories: a Chanel bag, beret and Louboutins bien sur! J’adore!
THIS TREND IS BIG FOR FALL
And you can wear it too! I shared my inside tips with AVA FEUER for exactly how to rock the trend and look like a celebrity at the same time.

‘Carrie Diaries’ Exclusive! Samantha Jones’s Style Secrets
Costume designer Eric Daman fills us on what to expect from the newest (and ’80s-est) Carrie Diaries character, Samantha Jones.
TeenVogue: How would you compare Carrie Diaries Samantha to Sex and the City Samantha? On SATC, Samantha’s style was actually sort of ’80s with all those suits!
Eric: Totally. When we met Samantha in Sex and the City, she’s older and her style’s more elevated, but in The Carrie Diaries, she’s in fringed T-shirts and leather skirts and layers of chunky studded belts. She’s growing up in the rock world, getting her first taste of power, and the power suits she wears in the ’90s are definitely a carryover of those from the ’80s.
TeenVogue: What brands are you dressing her in?
Eric: We did a big sweep of the fast fashion stores—there’s a lot of H&M and Topshop. Material Girl from Macy’s has tons of great pieces, and so do Bebe and Guess. We’re actually using vintage Guess which seems very appropriate, but the new Guess collection is also kind of perfect. Urban Outfitters has leather bralets and lace crop tops, and even though these pieces have an ’90s feel, we tailor them to have more of an ’80s silhouette. She’s into Manolo Blahnik shoes, and their pointy shape is key to her style. We’re also using things from Rodarte‘s acid-wash collection that are really perfect and Versace’s Versus line has a great leather jacket with gold studs. It feels very tongue-in-cheek and overdone, but that’s what those girls wore!

Summer holiday style inspired by the one & only Blair Waldorf—
Keep your style crisp year round with a classic combination.
RED, WHITE AND BLAIR! Season 1 Ep 18 “Much ‘I Do’ About Nothing” As the episode concludes Blair is packing for a summer getaway with Chuck Bass. Dress is vintage by Enza’s on Second Ave in NYC. Bag by Luis Vuitton, YSL shoes. See this pin and my other boards on Pinterest!
RED, WHITE AND BLAIR! Season 2 Ep 4 “The Ex-Files” As the episode progresses Blair feels Serena is increasingly replacing her as Queen of Constance. See this pin and my other boards on Pinterest!

RED, WHITE AND BLAIR! Season 3 Ep 22 “Last Tango, Then Paris” In the final scenes of Season 3, Blair wears this boat print, nautical theme blouse and red pencil skirt with matching D&G pumps as she packs (and convinces Serena to join her) in Paris for the summer! Bon Voyage! See this pin and my other boards on Pinterest!
RED, WHITE AND BLAIR! Leighton Meester was spotted (in real life!) headed to Sirius XM Radio in New York City wearing Giambattista Valli. See this pin and my other boards on Pinterest!
RED, WHITE AND BLAIR! Last but not least, Chuck’s J.Press scarf (aka Boris) is not to be left out of our Red, White & Blair lineup! See this pin and my other boards on Pinterest!
“Costume designer Eric Daman often put Leighton Meester’s “Gossip Girl” character in red, white and blue, but, he says, he also was keenly aware of balance, which doesn’t mean even. Stars are OK, stripes are OK, and sometimes they’re even OK together, but it’s easier to wade into overkill territory that way.
His favorite trick is a nautical theme: It could be a blue-and-red striped bateau neck top with white jeans, or a blue-and-white striped rugby with washed-out red chino shorts. “It’s a very Nantucket way to do it,” says Daman, a style adviser to retailer Century 21. A navy blazer, red tank and white pants offer a slightly dressier look.
And then he kicks it up with accessories, maybe red shoes or red bag, but…” (read more at news.yahoo.com)
