According to costume designer Eric Daman, Blair's wedding dress is "the biggest fashion moment" of the season.

There's probably only one other person who can rival Blair's maternity wear: Rachel Zoe.

Half Tinkerbell, half biker babe, topped with a messy ponytail that's a little bit of each.

That hair is just SO good.

"On Wednesdays we wear sunset colors."

This is the first outfit we saw Serena in, and it's stuck in our mind since then.

So much more fun than the traditional all black winter outfit.

Blair's trademark headband even pairs well with gowns.

The first outfit costume designer Eric Daman's listed as a favorite...

Wearing all neutrals draws all the attention to Juliet's blue leopard print shoes.

We love the versatility of a good long-sleeve, colorful day dress.

While Serena snagged herself a Mary Katrantzou original, we'll just have to wait for the designer's Topshop collaboration.

The same thing we wear for a casual afernoon at the museum, too.

So Ralph Lauren equestrian chic.

So very Chloé.

Serena's pyhton bag is pretty matchy-matchy with her dress, but it works.

Vanessa signature #1: print mixing.

If we were Serena, we'd pillage Lily's closet all the time.

We love it when Vanessa buttons up a bit.

We love the balance between the super-ruffly front and the daring open back.

With a little less makeup and some softer accessories, Jenny's leather dress could go the sweet route, too.

Suddenly sleeveless cape coats seem like a really practical option.

In a metallic blazer, Blair outshined the competition at her internship while still looking professional.

Three different takes on the headband craze.

Needs no jewelry.

We'd toss the beret but keep the rest of this Francophile look.

We miss Jenny's sweet side, when her clothes were totally Betsey Johnson-esque and fun.

Giant hoops and a nameplate necklace: we love old school Vanessa.

Since Blair's loungwear is obviously not worn-in boxer shorts and college t-shirts.

As if Blair wouldn't own a gorgeous, crisp white peacoat. Duh.

The lace insets on the sleeves are such a cool touch.

Probably the most scandalous outfit Blair ever wore in public.

With dark lipstick and a ulta-high hemline, Jenny made a sweaterdress and boots look totally goth.

Such a simple black dress— especially for Serena. Which is why we love it.

We love the sweet, breezy silhouette of this Balenciaga shift.

Lily's nude, ruched sheath might be even sexier than Serena's outfit.

We love the way Serena paired this ornate Marchesa dress with a casual ponytail.

It's the shoes that make the outfit.

The poufy sleeves and jeweled neckline make this daytime look just dressy enough for Serena.

Serena's low-cut dress looks a little more refined because of the muted eggplant color.

That gilded, strapless dress was so stunning it didn't even need any jewelry.

The snake print's kind of fitting for Georgina.

Spike bangles with a bridesmaid dress make such a really cool— but subtle— touch.

Inspiration from the boys: white jeans and baby blue shirts are an easy summer uniform.

Somehow the matching headband and shoes actually work.
