Gossip Girl really made the finale easy for me – keeping the same outfits as the last episode for half of this one really cuts down on the number I had to look at! Before we get started on the (very brief) wardrobe analysis, I have a quick note on the structure of the episode: this time they had a BEGINNING of episode party, rather than an END of episode party. They switched it up! (Just in time for the season to end …) Let’s hope this is a foreshadowing of next season.
Georgina was one of the few characters to make an entry in this episode in a new outfit, which I actually did like a lot. Given the way the episode ended (spoiler alert), it seems like we’ll be seeing more of her next year, although I’m undecided on how I feel about that right now.
Blair’s outfit change was a vast improvement over Shoulder Ruffle Dress. I loved her flowered dress, which looked perfect for a summer in Monaco. I’d love to show it to you again, but all the images that were provided that showed the characters’ new outfits were of Serena’s denim jacket. So clearly Serena changed outfits too, with the first one being kind of bizarre (I understand uneven hemlines, but that first top was just weird) to the second one (pictured), which was a little too beach bum for Serena Van Der Woodsen, in my opinion (but then again I’ve never been into denim jackets, so maybe that’s coloring my vision).
Well that’s it for this season, although you can click here for some casting updates. Stay tuned!
