clémence/gossip girl

I’m quite predictable in my choice of contemporary ‘style crushes’. Think Clémence, Zooey, Alexa etc. So I was delighted to come across these images of Clémence Poésy on the set of the latest season of Gossip Girl. My interest has been waning in GG as of late, but the addition of Clémence to the cast has definitely recaptured my attention. However, for some reason that I can’t quite put my finger on, the outfits she has been dressed in seem a bit lacking. Don’t get me wrong, given the chance I’d wear every single outfit in a heartbeat, but I was kind of expecting more. All this aside, I still think that she exudes a sense of understated and effortless chic, which is quite a refreshing change from the styles of the other blondes on the show (Serena = all cleavage and legs, Little J = uhhh, do I really need to explain this one?). Anyway, here’s hoping that Clémence adds that extra bit of (style) spark to the next season of Gossip Girl.

    i don't watch Gossip Girl, but i really do love Clemence's outfits in these photos! you're right about them lacking something…i can see the last outfit looking quite cute with maybe a belt or some quaint tights. i don't know, but she's adorable either way! =]

    This post is very amazing 🙂 I love Clemence's style and look. She's going to be a fashion-role model for me (like Sienna) 🙂

    i'm super excited that clemence is going to be guest starring, and it's even better because i've heard that she'll act as a love interest for chuck! looking forward to the first few eps, coz they're going to be filmed in paris 🙂 i adore the simplicity of these outfits although yes, i agree – they kind of lack something. . . hope you have a gorgeous weekend ♥

    ahh, i adore her last outfit. the blouse and skirt is just too adorable, i'd love to wear something like that! thank-you for your comment, that's such a shame you can't get it where you are, i suppose you could always pay for someone to send it over for you? just an idea 🙂

    love, jazzabelle. xxx

    It's funny how particular things or particular people punctuate one's activity.

    Clemence was the cover star of the first issue of i-D mag I ever bought and, consequently, can be credited with spurring my caring about fashion.

    And here we are.

    I like this blog. I'll be back!

    She is lovely, what funny is that I've got almost the same skirt (the one of the last picture) and I made it myself !

    Clémence is so lovely, i saw her once at Zara, doing her shopping and in the subway going to a gig !

    See U !

    ahh i love her outfits! so simple and chic
    i think maybe that's what they were going for (perhaps for her character) to be like the antithesis of blair/serena and how they're quite over the top sometimes? 😛 maybe i'm overanalysing

    See, I've loved GG from the beginning. I also have a little (ummmm) girl crush on Clémence, so this is amazing! And for her to be Chuck's love interest?! Man, major jealousy 😛 I really love the last outfit, but I know what you mean, when you say "lacking." There's nothing… special.

    LOVE HER. that last outfit = i want. so bad.

    i watched gossip girl during the first season, and have only caught bits here and there since. i got bored with it… (not to mention, i can't stand blake lively and her whiny, talk-through-her-teeth voice. yikes.) i really only tune in to see leighton meester, who i love! i might have to tune in more this coming season to see clemence, though! 😉

    I've stopped watching Gossip Girl, but I see what you mean! The outfits are lovely, but they're not as 'BOOM' as the other girls' outfits.

    Wow. I totally agree with everything you wrote. And my interest has been waning as well. But, she really does pull off an effortless chic!

    I don't know why but I was never attracted to Gossip Girl,even when I tried to watch it..
    Clemence always seems so chic,eben thought I am not a fan but I like her style everytime I see her photos!
    To tell the truth I would never expect her to play in such a series,I mean it always seemed to me that she 's more of a beautiful-movies actor!

    I have never have seen a Gossip Girl episode in my life, but I do LOVE Clemence Poesy–especially as Fleur Delacour in Harry Potter! She's so unconventionally beautiful. However, I do agree that her outfits are lacking a bit. They're missing a certain Poesy charm to them, you know? Nonetheless, I adore her style! x

    @leblogdemok and @LadyMoriarty: so jealous of your Clemence encounters! You lucky things.

    @Jazzabelle: Probably but shipping costs make it all a bit ridiculous. I can always get a subscription when I'm willing to fork out the dollars!

    @Technolustmaxx: Thanks! And that is quite an interesting turn of events.

    @Amie: I started thinking that too… but yeah, didn't really want to overanalyse it too much either.

    @Indie.Tea: thanks for following!

    @abby: that was my exact thought process when I heard the news! haha

    @notjustmedical: you've described it perfectly!

    @Christina: I was quite suprised when I heard she would be appearing on GG. Quite out of left field!

    I love her look! I would add more details myself, but I think the simplicity is very Clemence, and quite different from the other characters. Refreshing perhaps?
