Gossip Girl Fashion: "Easy J"

I have decided to make of the Gossip Girl Fashion a more constant feature on soVIPzone seeing as I enjoy so much creating them and some of you guys seem to like them. I try not to go much into detail when it comes to the plot of the episode but I can't guarantee a 100% spoiler-free post either, so read on at your discretion.
"Easy J" (Season 4 Episode 6) has probably been one of the more fun episodes of this season. We kind of went back to the old GG plots where a million things happen at once even if there's no way you could fit all of that action in 24 hours. They change a lot as well. Let's start with Serena. She starts out the episode with a great outfit with some amazing pattern mixing going on. But the highlight of the episode has to be the Maxime Simoens two piece she wears to the party. It looks sort of Matrix-y on the model but Blake pulls it off incredibly well, making it look like something Victoria Beckham would make for her line.
Speaking of Victoria Beckham, that's exactly what Blair wears to the same party. And it's none but my favourite dress from the FW10 collection! I am surprised they don't put Blair in more form-hugging dresses. If you look at the dress from the back you can see how unbelievably well it fits her. It's classic, tasteful, refined and sexy. I want to see more of this Blair.
This episode was also full of fashion personalities. My favourite, of course, the legendary Tim Gunn playing himself. It is absolutely hilarious how he tries to act here and there. It doesn't really work but we love him anyway. I did love how he says to Jenny "that was bold" with the same singer-y tone he asks Project Runway designers to "make it work". A Tim Gunn tag line would have been extraordinary...! Something of a tagline was my favourite line from the episode. Jenny: "Yes, is it 100% vintage crazy-ass Blair". Who doesn't like a bad-ass fashion reference?

Isaac Mizrahi did the best work at acting. Although it's fair to say he was only on screen for a fourth of the time Tim Gunn is and he says about two words. In any case, look at that genuinely ecstatic face when he sees Lily, who, by the way, is wearing one of his designs. (Having industry on the show is starting to become a trend at this point).

The other popular face on the show was Ivanka Trump (and whoever she's married to) who looks fabulous in an Upper-East-Side take on the flapper. Also, she doesn't have to act because she is a Trump and we should be thankful just for having her on the show. NOTE: I loved that, for once, the party was at space with light instead of inside a dark hotel lounge.

These three totally crack me up. It absolutely escapes me how it makes sense to still have these childish scenarios when they're all in uni but I am so entertained by them. I especially love the fact that Penelope wears the same as the other two but in a different way, as to mark the difference in hierarchy. Them and Blair also had the best conversation of the episode:
Penelope- "The Boom Boom is a private club and we're having trouble with the guy at the door, can you help?"
Blair- "Penelope, this isn't Congress. Accomplish something!"

Eric's character is a bit of a mystery to me. He isn't always there and we don't really know what he does with his life apart from helping Jenny and being considerably shorter than all his cast members. It seems as if now that he's got a much needed haircut he is determined to become a mini-Dan. His body language speaks for himself.

And lastly, Blair in pyjamas. I can't remember well if we've seen a moment like this before but if we have I'm sure she was wearing a night gown. I find this masculine choice extremely refreshing and insanely sexy!
