Runway To Gossip Girl – Blake Lively In Farah Angsana & Nanette Lepore

Thankfully I have Sky+ otherwise I would miss all my favourite programmes.

Last night I watched about 2 hours of Coronation Street back-to-back – finally Tony Gordon has been found out – and Gossip Girl which usually airs in the UK on a Wednesday night.

The episode was called “How To Succeed in Bassness” were Chuck threw a 1920’s-themed party for the opening of his club.

It was at the event we got to see Blake Lively as Serena van der Woodsen looking absolutely amazing wearing vintage silver embellished dress. She paired her dress with a Farah Angsana mint silk cape embellished with crystal embroidery from the designer’s Fall 2009 collection.

Her dress was paired with nude fishnet tights, and Christian Louboutin Very Galaxy peep-toes.

In another scene in the same episode we saw Serena at work with Blair listening to Serena’s telephone conversation with Chuck.

Serena was wearing a silky Nanette Lepore Darjeeling dress, with gold sequin embellishments, a sexy keyhole detail at bateau neckline, cute puffed three-quarter sleeves, and a flattering keyhole detail.

    Aww, you just watched that episode, I think it’s terrible you guys are like 4 episode behind. She looks absolutely stunning in those outfit. OT but your mention of corronation street makes me miss my aunt (she moved to canada from london), when she stayed with us, she always watched it, I never got into it and it was the same time I watched passions. Those were the days.

    Also FC, how did you recognise the cape? It is not even that “in-your-face”, atleast in this episode. *courtesies* 😀
    Oh, and I love these girls at Gossip Girl. Attend parties, concerts, galas in luxury brands, wear shoes I swoon over. I am living vicariously through them. 😀

      I was at the show and no one else did these capes

    Wow, that’s a pretty old episode.

    • Fashion Critic November 24, 2009 at 16:47 #

      Did you read the text?

      It only just aired in the UK.

      Besides does it matter how old the episode is?

      I will guess your answer is no

    I especially love the Farah Angsana cape, and the Nanette Lepore dress is adorable also.

    omg! this is huge! Serena looked so lovely.
    Farah Angsana makes me, Indonesian, proud 🙂

    Blair’s dress for the event was beautiful too.

    The character Robin on How I Met Your Mother (not sure if you get it in the UK, but hilarious) wore that same Nanette Lepore dress last night’s episode in purple.
