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

And there you have it. Gossip Girl Season 6, the FINAL season of GG and thereby the entire series, is officially over. *pours a little out for Kristen Bell’s steady V.O. paycheck* The end of the show as we know it also means the end of these weekly fashion recaps, and since this is the last time we’ll be writing about this particular version of the Upper East Side teen drama (who knows if/when there will be a remake or movie penned), we’re not holding anything back. If you haven’t caught up yet, I’d stop reading right now (both this post and probably also your Twitter feed) because I’m about to LITTER this digital page with spoilers. LET’S DISCUSS!

The final ep starts off with an extra-long plot refresher that plays straight into the beginning of this one, “New York, I Love You XOXO.” Blair (Leighton Meester) and Chuck (Ed Westwick) flee the Bart Bass (Robert John Burke) real estate celebration after Bart plummets to his ultimate demise (not unlike, uhh, almost every Disney villain ever). Chair’s disappearance raises red flags with NYPD, especially after Chuck’s outburst earlier that night, marking them both as suspects.

In light of Bart’s death, Ivy Dickens (Kaylee DeFer) gives William van der Woodsen (Billy Baldwin) the green light to return to Manhattan. He meets up with Lily (Kelly Rutherford) first to give her moral support in this dark time, but upon Ivy’s arrival, Dr. van der Woodsen reveals that reuniting with Lily was his goal all along. Rekindling flames is (obviously) a theme this episode as things go according to Dan’s (Penn Badgley) plan, and Serena (Blake Lively) stumbles on his last chapter (which he planted in her carry-on inside her Nylon magazine), halting her flight to L.A. to confront him about what she’s read.

Nate (Chace Crawford) and Sage (Sofia Black-D’Elia) put their beautiful little heads together to uncover the identity of Gossip Girl. Their progress is slow but steady, and they get pretty close until Jack Bass (Desmond Harrington) rounds them up with the rest of the crew (Georgina Sparks (Michelle Trachtenberg) included!) for Chuck and Blair’s surprise wedding. It’s as much a thing that was always supposed to happen as it is a scheme to thwart any chance of Blair testifying against Chuck which makes it kind of the perfect union situation for the dastardly couple.

Seconds after Cyrus (Wallace Shawn) utters, “You may now kiss the bride,” a blast hits everyone’s phones. This time, though, it’s from The Spectator, and it isn’t the first scoop on Chuck and Blair’s long-awaited matrimony. It’s Dan’s last chapter, and it’s about Gossip Girl. NEWS FLASH: it turns out Humphrey, the most talented writer of the bunch and the MOST preoccupied with the ins and outs of Manhattan’s elite, was single-handedly responsible for running the blog, adopting their voice, and exposing all their dirty little secrets. Go figure! Somehow all the preliminary damage his other chapters did softened the blow on the group of friends because everyone (save Blair) was immediately ready to accept the revelation and forgive Humphrey — maybe it had a little to do with saving Nate’s newspaper?

The show jumps at least five years into the future (or into an alternate universe, we can’t be too sure) where Chuck and Blair have produced a cheeky little Bass nugget with swoopy hair and impeccable threads, Jenny Humphrey (Taylor Momsen) is both in the same room as Blair and wearing relatively minimal eyeshadow, and Rufus (Matthew Settle) is romatically involved with Lisa Loeb. Oh right, AND Lonely Boy ain’t lonely no mo’ because he and a gold dress-wearing Serena and S’s infamous décolletage are all getting married. The end! XOXO
