8. Adopt a signature look
All hail Queen B.
Leighton Meester (formerly known as Blair Waldorf), is continuing her campaign to convince you to move to California.
We've all plenty of girl crushes in life - from the high school seniors we looked up to as freshman to the women who dominate our industries, girl crush-able ladies are everywhere and there are tons of them in Hollywood.
Just don't blame us if you're a Serena-level hot mess by the end of it.
You might never actually be Blair Waldorf, but if you move into Leighton Meester’s chic aF apartment you’re destined to...
Her ombre hair and coffee house vibes scream Brooklyn, which is exactly what would've happened if Blair ended up with Dan Humphrey.
Serena van der Woodsen might have finally popped that bun out of her oven, but Blair Waldorf is still winning at life.
Blair Waldorf was the ultimate queen bee, and ever since Gossip Girl ended, Monday nights haven't been the same without a weekly dose of her snark. But before there was Blair, there was Libby, Amber, Courtney, Sandi and Nicole.
Check out the shockingly beautiful cast (including Leighton Meester, Blake Lively, Penn Badgley and Michelle Trachtenberg) through the years, with some absolutely precious back-stage and behind-the-scenes pics.
Like it or not, Valentine's Day is coming in less than two weeks. Whether you're dressing up for date night with your beau, gearing up for a night of dancing with your single ladies, or joining Ben & Jerry for a night with Blair and Serena, it's the perfect excuse to buy something pretty.
A bow detail is the perfect juxtaposition to the more masculine pieces popular right now. Bows are inherently girly (unless it's a bow-tie!) and even the smallest one can soften the baggy silhouettes of boyfriend blazers or army jackets.
It's almost the end of the year. As you're making your New Year's resolution list, here's something to think about: punching up your style for 2011. If you have "budget better" on your list, this might seem like it will counter a resolution to save money, but it doesn't have to. An easy way to add a little punch to your wardrobe is with accessories!
Despite my previous attempt (and some damn good ideas, if I do say so myself), Gossip Girl producers did not hear my 'let's change Gossip Girl once and for all' desperate call. I had hope for them, I really did. And now I'm left binge eating an entire bowl of popcorn and sitting in my family room more frustrated than I was when I sat down last week to get some GG and discovered there was no episode.
