Normally, I don't like seeing Blair all buttoned up, even if it's an interesting juxtoposition to her personality, but I really enjoyed this school uniform she wears at the beginning. Tight navy blue pencil skirt, paired with a white blouse full of interesting details. Love the scalloped, lacy yoke down the back. It really adds some interest even though the rest of the outfit is deceptively simple. The blue and white scarf headband adds just the right touch of casual to an otherwise fairly prim look. In fact, I do believe she got this style tip from her occasion BFF, SvdW. Later that night, Blair is anything but prim as she cajoles Chuck to seduce and destroy Vanessa. And what better outfit to wear than one that will seduce and destroy him too? This black and white polka-dotted teddy is gorgeous, and Blair dresses it up with a few strands of pearls and loose, sleek waves. The next morning at brunch, Blair appears as if butter wouldn't melt in her mouth. Despite the cool peach of your silk blouse and the straight locks, we know you better, Queen B. And so apparently does Chuck, who stops by with his own devil's bargain. B is dressed in her favorite white transparent negligee and an adorable yet sexy lilac silk romper. And then Chuck undresses her, but you get the point, yes? For the Bass der Woodsen housewarming, Blair pulls out the big guns--i.e. a dress that Chuck bought her before their ill-fated trip to Tuscany. It's definitely not the sexiest thing Blair has ever worn, but you can clearly tell this is something Chuck would have bought for her. It's demure, with its loose fit, but still undeniably hot with luxurious beaded detailing. I really love the beading on the shoulder, but I have to veto Blair's too-bulky headband. Is that a tumor growing on her scalp? But wait. Remember how I said Blair pulled out all the stops? It seems I was wrong. There is one last stop of the Blair Express that might convince Chuck to get aboard. Again, this is undeniably sexy, with the black lace stockings and the fire engine red panties and matching bra, but the subtle detailing of the pleats and the little bow add a sophistication that Chuck is sure to appreciate. Had to include a shot of the infamous tie-scarf. It really adds a whole other dimension to what could be a rather plain St. Jude's uniform--and this is Chuck Bass. He couldn't be seen wearing run-of-the-mill clothing. As evidence, I present what he dons for his "house call" to Blair's. A rich plaid jacket, paired with pocket square and ascot tied jauntily around his neck. It's a bit 1960s swinger, no? To seduce Vanessa, he pairs a pale celery green shirt with a green paisley tie and a double-breasted charcoal vest. I don't know what she's saying about him dressing horribly. Are her eyes functioning properly? I'll get to that a little later, but it's not premature to say that she must be lacking in the eyesight department. After a shower, Chuck changes into one of his many silk robes, this one also paired with a bright red pocket square. I think he might be the only man on earth so dedicated to fashion he puts pocket squares even in his robes. Love the richness of the blue brocade though. It's an absolutely gorgeous fabric. From the waist up, this is almost a fairly plain Chuck Bass ensemble. Simple blue shirt paired with a gray cardigan. Chuck Bass - man of the people. A man who can talk to an old jazzer and get him on his side. A man who... ...wears blue plaid pants. As for his appearance at the housewarming, Chuck goes full on Hugh Hefner, which is appropriate, considering the two women he's balancing. Lots of pattern and color going on here. He definitely has a knack for pairing, because this is one thread away from being too much, even for Chuck Bass. As for his target, Vanessa, suffice it to say, she can't truly believe that the great king of sartorial expressiveness is interested in her. Not when she dresses like this, anyway. Here's the disaster that Chuck's outfit could have been--except this is even worse than that. The number of patterns and fabrics and just plain ugly accessories combine to be a hot mess, plain and simple. Her hair is better but even that can't save this outfit. I actually kind of like this purple striped tunic, but it goes all wrong with those tight stonewashed jeans and heavy silver chains. This is a little better, if only because the leather jacket covers the worst of the necklaces. When faced with the prospect of the housewarming party, she decides on a bedsheet and fashions it into a dress. The necklaces actually aren't a bad match, even if the dress is awful, and I have to applaud that she resisted the urge to layer about ten more on top of what she was already wearing. However, the hospital gown isn't even the worst part of this outfit--it's easily this sewage green leather clutch: Blair, be a dear and flush that, won't you?
