so ‘gossip girl’ season 4 is currently being shot all over the streets of paris and new york city. you know what that means…serena and blair (and chuck?) in all their designer glory. yesterday i came across this shot of blake lively shooting in new york.
this is such a gorgeous shot. first off, let me just declare my love for all things black and white. this is a combination which will never get old. it is minimalistic yet versatile: any outfit, any material, any silhouette works if it is in black and white.
blake lively is wearing a gorgeous jenny packham dress with glittery blue pumps. i think this dress is absolutely breathtaking, and that is probably because it is so dramatic. the whole purpose of it’s creation was probably to knock people off their feet. tis true.
there are so many focal elements – blue crystal embellishment on collar and empire waist, keyhole neck, plunging back – but none of them are clashing with one another. the whole look is daring, bold and oh-so-serena. however,i think the whole look would have been a lot classier if the keyhole cutout wasn’t so large. there’s just too much exposure going on. it’s kind of disturbing
