I have about ten billion fashion icons: both male and female. There’s Gwen Stefani, Brandon Flowers, Audrey Hepburn, Katy Perry, Bob Dylan, and – Blair Waldorf. Yes, Blair Waldorf is a fictional character. Yes, Leighton Meester also dresses well, but not as well as Blair, GOSH. Post THAT on Gossip Girl.
Blair has ensembles for every occasion: night out, brunch, going to bed.. but I want her wardrobe for the office. I have a strange obsession with workplace fashion. I think it has something to do with the fact that women weren’t always allowed to dress as they pleased at work, but now, well, I wouldn’t be surprised if Vera Wang came out with an office fashion collection.
Blair Waldorf’s closet is a gift to television. Whether you appreciate teen dramas set in the Upper East Side or not, you must respect the effort the style department has put in. Blair’s style is professional, classy, and feminine. It’s cute, but casual. It’s perfect, but perfect.
