“I wanted a Harry Winston choker for my birthday. Instead, I got a conscience.” – Blair
Diamond chokers, mandarin orange martinis, and fiery fashion were just some of the highlights of last night’s glittering Gossip Girl episode, “Bonfire of the Vanity”.
Blair plans her 18th birthday party and schemes against her mother’s ‘troll’ of a boyfriend, played by the unflappable Wallace Shawn, Serena experiences the pitfalls of dating an ‘artist’, and Jenny’s dreams of her own fashion line quite literally go up in flames.
But the highlight of the night didn’t come in the guise of a catfight or kissing scene. Nope. Guest star and living legend, Cyndi Lauper, made a surprise cameo at Blair’s 18th birthday party – proving yet again that the girl still knows how to have fun. And her glittering jewelry fashion proves she still knows how to trend-set.
Layered bangles and huge drop earrings were the accessory of choice for the 80’s icon. She’s so NOT unusual anymore, folks. And while we didn’t get a song out of her during her quick appearance, it was great to see that bleached asymmetrical hair cut back on the small screen again.
Other jewelry fashion highlights came in the guise of a stunning statement necklace, worn by Blair’s fashion forward mom, and Jenny’s by now signature layered pendant necklace look made another glittering show – as did her goth-y black eyeliner and crying skills. The writers really need to give this poor girl a break.
