Perusing the Internet earlier I came across some rather exciting pictures of the Gossip Girl cast filming the new series in Paris. Blair and Serena looking as glamorous as ever and Chuck... well, looking like Chuck - as dapper as ever. Take the below picture as proof - just how amazing is this red Oscar de la Renta gown with a magenta clutch and heels?
I don't know about you but I'm a Blair fan through and through, as fabulously blonde and lean as Blake Lively's Serena is, no one does occasion wear like Blair. But Leighton Meester is a far cry from her character - gone is the Upper East Side school girl and in comes the on trend 20-something. So I thought I would pose the question - are you Blair and Leighton? Prim dresses and peachy skin or fiercely dressed and smokey eyed?
To solve the dilemma of Blair vs Leighton I've put together two evening outfits, one for Blair and one from Leighton. Take your pick and mix and maybe even mix and match the two.
First up is Blair, and I have taken the inspiration for this outfit from the crisp white dress she wore to the White Party at the beginning of Season Two. I've mixed in some pastels and best of all, some fierce shoes for the look. Add in some soft curls, some nude lip gloss and a Queen B attitude.

Next up is Leighton, and Ms Meester tends to go for a much fiercer silhouette than her alter ego. A lover of bodycon, modern prints and heels with attitude, this black dress and accompanying accessories are the right side of edgy and ever stylish for evening. The cut-out details are perfect for Leighton's youthful looks and make the dress all the more interesting.
