The Jenny Packham NYFW Spring 2014 Collection: If Gossip Girl Was Still on…

11 Sep

Before Kate Middleton wore it, a fictional Queen B dressed in the same rose colored Jenny Packham gown. Gossip Girl is no more and so the new Jenny Packham collection won’t feature on the Upper East Side, but here at TV Ate My Wardrobe we’re going to play Fantasy Costuming with a twist. We’ve picked out several looks from yesterday’s Jenny Packham runway show that we think Blair Waldorf would want in her in closet. While it was definitely time for Gossip Girl to come to an end, one aspect we miss is the costuming; from whatever top Serena was pretending was a dress to the spike shoulder pads Georgina was wearing.

Fantasy Costuming keeps the dream alive and we’ve picked four evening looks because the parties were endless and one outfit that is perfect for daytime gallivanting for Blair Waldorf.

Jenny Packham grey dress

This has all the aspects of a Jenny Packham dress that would appeal to a character like Blair Waldorf; it is elegant, feminine and ethereal. The detail on the dress is sparkly without being garish.

Jenny Packham nude dressPink is a big trend this year and this is perfect for the Jenny Packham princess-like playbook and while the neckline is perhaps more Serena than Blair, the delicate beading and romantic nature of this dress screams Blair Waldorf.

Jenny Packham mustard

Breaking up the billowy chiffon looking numbers is this ’70s inspired mustard gown; with the longer sleeves it’s pretty much ready to wear now as the temperatures start to drop. While it looks different from the other dresses it still has the cinched in waist and the embellishments look like built in pearls.

Jenny Packham blue dress

This slash neckline is probably more Blair’s style (not that she hasn’t done cleavage enhancing dresses in the past) and this is another example of exquisite beading on a pastel colored dress. The frilled sheer sleeves are similar to the dress that Blair previously wore on Gossip Girl.

Jenny Packham mustard top, blue skirtWhether Blair is in New York or Paris this beautiful baby blue/mustard affair is perfect for working on the Waldorf fashion empire, or scheming (there will always be scheming). The sheer detail on the skirt is sexy without being too provocative and the burgundy belting adds a dramatic edge to the piece. The only let down is what I’m guessing is a bag but looks like a screwed up jumper. Blair Waldorf would not approve.
