Hey Upper East Siders, Gossip Girl here and she’s about to give you a history lesson in crimes against fashion.
Speaking of iconic fashion, we spoke about Netflix’s ‘Hollywood’ on this episode of It’s Been A Big Day For…
Whether its because we were only passively watching the show or because we were simply hooked on the storyline, our memory of Gossip Girl is hazy.
As a result, Gossip Girl has become the perfect isolation-binge and has seen audiences around the world give it a revisit. But, with this Gossip Girl revisit, comes a lot of imperfections rising to the surface, including fashion crimes. Look, nothing is perfect, but we’re wondering how these missed our attention in the first place because oh boy, they were bad. Let’s dive in.
The Time Cinderella Was An Extra In Gossip Girl
We have to thank TikTok for resurfacing this one. With over 170k views in a matter of days, this viral video captioned “Someone messed up” completely outed the costume department in Gossip Girl for not doing their job properly. For this moment, we’re casting your mind back to Season 5, Episode 3.
Remember in ‘Jewel of Denial’, when Blair Waldorf and Dan Humphrey arrived at a party in each other’s arms? Yeah, we do too. But, you probably don’t remember the background extra who was standing on one shoe at the time. Yep, somebody alert security because Cinderella just walked on set and casually stood in the background of this scene. Allow us to refresh your memory.
We’re honestly shocked that this somehow made it to screen, but we’re as shocked that we didn’t notice it the first time around!
The Time Serena Had A Lunch At 1pm And The Gym At 2pm
For this wardrobe mishap, we’re taking you back to Season six, episode four. In ‘Portrait of a Lady Alexander,’ Serena van der Woodsen is out to lunch being her fashionable self. Rocking a coral dress, this style icon was serving looks up until the end of the scene. While she was donning a dress for most of the scene, one quick cut outs the actress as subtly wearing sweatpants on set. Was it cold on the day? Must’ve been. Check out the clip for yourself.
The Time Chuck Had A Basketball Photoshoot To Get To
We’re not really sure what on earth Chuck was thinking, but we have to bring you attention back to the fourth episode of Season one. As Chuck flexed his basketball playing attire, we have to question if the character even knew what the game was? Props must be given to him for his colour co-ordination, but the headband? The crown print? The 5/8ths shorts? Please, someone, make it stop.
The Time The Gossip Girl Squad Tried To Make A Loose Tie A Thing
It’s not a thing. Avril Lavigne did it way back in 2003 as a statement of being punk rock, but that wasn’t an invitation for the Gossip Girl costume department to take it on themselves to elevate the concept. We’re going to let it slide because we assume that this was a take on making school uniform chic, but honestly, these fell flat!
Hilarious iso-entertainment if you ask us. For more on Gossip Girl that isn’t fashion crime-related, make sure you check out our coverage of the reboot.
