Spotted: Blair Waldorf’s wedding dress

Gossip Girls have been able to get their first look at Blair Waldorf’s wedding dress after the hit show’s producers filmed the latest episode in New York.

The wealthy character, played by Leighton Meester, is something of a fashion icon and her stylish ensembles are no doubt an inspiration to viewers all over the world, so the unveiling of her wedding dress was always likely to cause a stir, reports Grazia.

“Brace yourself Upper East Siders, and prepare to drool over the wedding dress you’ve been waiting forever to see. No we don’t mean Kate Middleton, Kate Moss or even Bella Swan’s. We are, of course, talking about Blair Waldorf’s bridal fancy,” said the glamour magazine.

Her dress could influence what fans wear to their own nuptials and wedding reception venue celebrations, with Meester’s full-skirted, fairytale-style dress featuring a chiffon bow on the front as well as a long train behind.

While Grazia suggested it was probably designed by Vera Wang, InStyle disagreed, saying it was most likely Monique Lhuillier, following comments by Gossip Girl stylist Eric Daman.

He said it was created by a bridal designer who also does ready-to-wear pieces, adding that he thinks the dress looked “phenomenal”. In his view, it combines beauty, subtlety, bravado and “gorgeousness” to great effect.
