When I first heard about the Miss Selfridge for Gossip Girl collection, I had my doubts. The Gossip Girl wardrobe is all about designer, high end fabrics straight off the New York runways. How was Miss Selfridge going to capture the glamour of the Upper East Side at a price suitable for the lowly high street?
They couldn’t. Of course they couldn’t. But they’ve done a pretty good job, considering. Although they haven’t quite captured Serena’s effortless glam, Jenny’s rich rock-chick, Vanessa’s boho glamour and, of course, Blair’s classic retro style, they have created eight stylish dresses which you can imagine the characters wearing. They’re very nice, they’re just not that Gossip Girl.
