The countdown is on: There are only three more days until the sixth and final season of Gossip Girl kicks off. And we care about one thing and one thing only: what S and B will be wearing.

In anticipation of the season premiere, we decided to take a trip down memory lane and find the looks the two leading ladies wore for the series premiere five years ago.

The very first glimpse we got of Serena van der Woodsen was when she arrived at Grand Central Terminal, returning to the city after having disappeared to boarding school (left).

Her debut look consisted of a light-brown leather jacket, a nautical striped top and dark denim. It was rather covered-up and simple compared to the high-fashion, mixed-print and downright sexy ensembles that came to be Serena’s calling card. Also of note: her hair. Gorgeous, but it’s definitely gotten shinier and more voluminous as the seasons have gone on.

And of course, we couldn’t forget about Blair Waldorf’s first outfit on the show: it was the black lace-and-sheer babydoll dress she was wearing when she found out her long-lost BFF was back in town. (Watch the below clip if you need a refresher.) The ethereal mini (designed by her TV mother, Eleanor) was finished off with what would become Queen B’s signature accessory: a headband. Six seasons later, B occasionally dons headbands, but she pairs them with getups that are far more ladies-who-lunch.

We can’t really fault either of the ensembles (they’re polished, put-together and cute), though we have no doubt that the styles S and B sport on the first episode of the final season of Gossip Girl will be way more over-the-top, memorable and jaw-dropping. Tell us: Whose wardrobe do you like better? Serena’s or Blair’s?

This was never about the oil leak.a0 Obama and his administration nedeed an excuse to demonize big oil anda0this crisisa0fell into his eager, grasping hands.a0 He has accomplished so much ran off the head executive of BP, shook down the company for 20 billion (lifted the cap on damages), a0stopped deep water drilling (eventually all off shore drilling), economically crippled Republican voting states,a0advanced his green agenda for alternative fuels that are not carbon based and will tie up big oil in so much red tape that they will run screaming to friendlier shores.a0 The worst part of this is how the fire on the rig was fought the damage to the pipes could have been avoided if the coast guard had been better prepared it would appear that the major damage to the rig occurred when the fire was being fought.a0 Methinks that over time the full story will be more about federal government incompetence than what BP did wrong.a0 Cheers.VA:F [1.9.13_1145]please wait…VA:F [1.9.13_1145](from 0 votes)
