Gossip Girl Recap: The Real Serena Returns, No Curves Barred In Herve Leger

September 23, 2008 by SheFindsChristine

I don't know about you Gossip Girl fans out there – but after the first few episodes of the season I was a little concerned that our beloved "Greatest Show of our Time" was "headed down Sarah Palin's road to nowhere". (My new favorite line from Jeremy Piven on Sunday's Emmy Awards.) Yes, the fashion was fabulous as always but the drama seemed a bit lacking. A predictable Dan and Serena hook-up, a brooding 'mother-Chucker' or 'Bass-hole' if you will, Nate sleeping with a cougar Duchess who then blackmails him, and Blair being a regular gold-digger.

Nothing a very-dramatic breakup of D and S, a return of the old binge-drinking queen Serena, and a few Herve Leger dresses couldn't cure.

Serena looked H-O-T as she gulped down martinis and hit on lacrosse players in an attempt to make Dan jealous in this:

She wasn't the only one sporting a tight-fitting Herve-Leger-esque dress this episode. The Duchess (in her hopefully last appearance because that plot line was a bit of a stretch) wore an off-the-shoulder bright green number that looked painted on.

Got the dough for a collection piece? Try this Herve Leger Empire Slip Dress in coral ($975).

Herve out of your price range? Yeah, mine too. In place I found this fall-friendly navy satin bandage dress by David Meister for $348.

We have a (kinda) low price point for you ladies who saved yourself money by staying in and watching people have fun in NYC rather than going out and having fun yourself last night. You can afford to be frugal when you can find inexpensive pieces like this colorblock bandage tube dress – just $174.

Keep in mind ladies that these dresses are as unforgiving as Blair Waldorf — get yourself some suck-it-in undergarments from our Shapewear Guide.
