GET THE LOOK: Gossip Girl
On Gossip Girl, the CW’s new drama about slick Manhattan teens, even the “poor” kids wear Marc Jacobs. (The heiresses get to choose between Chanel and Gaultier.) “We’d hang out in front of the private schools on the Upper East Side and see girls in Tory Burch flats and Balenciaga bags with their uniforms,” says costume designer Eric Daman. “These girls are fashion savvy—and very wealthy.” Here’s how to get the look at prices teens without an AmEx Black can afford.
