Fashionistas have been swooning over the clothing worn by Blair Waldorf, Serena van der Woodsen and Chuck Bass since the Upper East Side drama debuted on the CW in 2007. Eric Daman, the show’s costume designer, who worked with the legendary Patricia Fields on “Sex and the City,” has given hungry fans plenty of high-end designer garments and enviable ensembles for the last five seasons. As the show enters its sixth and final season, we take a look back at the series’ style impact.
Headbands quickly became the signature of Blair Waldorf, played by Leighton Meester, left, in the first few seasons of the show. The girly, youthful accessories were perfectly coordinated with Blair’s feminine and preppy takes on the Constance Billard School uniform. Serena van der Woodsen, played by Blake Lively, right, embodied a more bohemian style, often with T-shirts and a plaid skirt rather than button-up blouses. The CW Buy Photo
