FOUND: Blake Lively's Gossip Girl Yale Reception Dress

Monday, October 20, 2008 • Permalink • 

Last week, when I said I'd be cataloguing fashion finds from last week's Gossip Girl episode for a good long while I wasn't kidding. The Gossip Girl goes to Yale episode was practically a What's What of current fashion trends and must-have labels. I hardly had to hit pause to be able to name the designs that were showcased. Seriously, it's like the wardrobe designers snagged all of the stuff that people were already talking about and crammed it all into one episode.

The most obvious super-trendy fashion pick? The oh-so-inappropriate dress Blake Lively as Serena wore to the Dean's private reception at Yale. Um, an aspiring Ivy student would never wear anything that revealing to an admissions reception. No freaking way. But, the dress was fabulous nonetheless. Perfect for your next cocktail party or similar occasion. Please ladies, do not wear this dress to any occasion where you are being considered for placement at a prestigious institution of higher education, a job promotion, or appointment to any kind of civic work group.
