On The Gossip Girls Set With Leighton Meester Wearing Alice + Olivia

Chace Crawford and Leighton Meester were back on the set of ‘Gossip Girl’ yesterday, which has resumed filming in New York City after a brief hiatus.

The highly-anticipated third season will start airing on the CW  from September 14. Which means us folks in the UK will have to wait even longer.

Leighton as Blair Wardolf wore an Alice + Olivia terry halter dress with a bright yellow belt plus flip flops whilst shooting with Chace.

The summery garden floral dress with a sweet-heart neckline is cute and perfect for a summer barbeque or a shopping trip with friends.  Keep it casual and fun with flats.

Get your hands on this dress from before everyone sees it on screen for only $308.


WAGS Love Alice + Olivia

We love WAGS. Firstly because they have walk-in-closets we kill for.

They’re beautiful, seemingly normal girls just like us who got lucky by marrying a footballer who earns £90k a week – unlike us.

Our favourites are Coleen Rooney and Cheryl Cole. These two have great style and can often be seen wearing high street clothes, mixed with designer pieces.

On this occasion they’ve both recently worn Alicia + Olivia dresses which are distinctive by the tank top and contrasting belts.

Pregnant Coleen glowed in her cute mini tank dress, which is available from Net-A-Porter International for £295/€362.02.

Whilst Cheryl was seen leaving London’s Heathrow for a much deserved break, wearing a maxi version with a floral print skirt, which I found at Frockshop for $495.

Both look divine, but I’m leaning towards Coleen’s dress.

Gianfranco Ferré vs. Alice + Olivia

Back in September 2008, this black and white strapless Gianfranco Ferré dress was presented during Milan Fashion Week.

The next time we saw it, was on Anna Hathaway at the Critic Choice Awards, as we marveled at the gorgeous structured two tone piece.

The dress looks like a traditional white dress from one side, but the black side panel added a creative twist making the dress a stand out piece.

Alice + Olivia have created a similar dress, which was no doubt inspired by the Gianfranco Ferré dress. It’s strapless, black and white, has a pleated overlay and buckled belt.

I’m not sure how much the Gianfranco Ferré dress costs, but the Alice + Olivia dress only cost $367 from
