Not Even the Biggest Gossip Girl Fans Know This

For the fashion girl, watching TV is more than just a hobby or time for relaxation—so many TV shows are a great source for studying up on the latest fashion trends! One of the most iconic of these was Gossip Girl. Even though the show ended four years ago (much to our dismay), we're still inspired all the time by the series's fashionable characters. We love thinking about what Serena van der Woodsen and Blair Waldorf would wear today.

This nostalgia is why we were so excited to see that PopSugar decided to revisit the style from the show and share behind-the-scenes wardrobe secrets that even die-hard fans might not know. Some of the most exciting information we gleaned from the piece? The original inspiration behind Blair and Serena's iconic style.

According to costume designer Eric Daman in an interview with The Huffington Post, Serena's nonchalant je ne sais quois was modeled after Kate Moss. In complete contrast, Blair's totally put-together chicness was based on a mix of the old-school glamour of Audrey Hepburn and the meticulousness of Anna Wintour. We can totally see it now that we know, and we love each of their style aesthetics all the more for it.

Scroll on to shop pieces inspired by Serena and Blair themselves!
