‘Gossip Girl’ Fashion: Who Looked Best Last Night?

The Upper East Siders are back from winter break—with their scheming antics, designer clothes, and all! Gossip Girl’s 12th episode of season four, “The Kids Are Not Alright,” premiered last night, centering around Blair Waldorf’s (Leighton Meester) search for an internship (she finally realizes fashion editorial is her forte), and equally important, the fall/rise/fall of Bass industries. A former associate of Chuck’s dad, businessman Russell Thorpe (Michael Boatman)—along with his well-dressed daughter/biz partner, Raina Thorpe (Tika Sumpter)—entered the picture, vowing to buy the flailing company. We have a feeling we’ll be seeing a lot more of this duo. Meanwhile, Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) and Serena Van Der Woodsen (Blake Lively) join forces against Lily to make her pay for forging Serena’s signature on an affidavit that wrongfully sent her ex-high school teacher to prison. Drama, drama, drama. But with it came some hot ensembles. We loved all of the winter toppers, like Serena’ plaid Burberry coat and her belted Mike Gonzales overcoat. But our favorite look was newbie Raina Thorpe’s ruched bandage dress. What do you think?
