The TikTok Video Revealing Serena's Fashion Blunder
Hello, Upper East Siders! I was scrolling through TikTok when I happened to come across a video of a Serena van der Woodsen outfit blunder on Gossip Girl that made my jaw drop. TikTok user skyehanamaikai was rewatching season six, episode four, when the camera accidentally panned down to reveal that Blake Lively was wearing a pair of sweatpants over her body-con dress. The video now has six million views, 20 of which were mine because I couldn't believe what I was seeing, and the fact that nobody caught this before. (Remember when Twitter spotted a Starbucks cup in an episode of Game of Thrones or the Hydro Flask debacle in Little Women? This is like that.)
In the episode, Serena crashes a speed-dating round that Georgina set up for Dan wearing a neon orange body-con dress by Roland Mouret. She accessorizes with a snakeskin-print bag by Fendi and a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti high heels. Her entire outfit screams high fashion, which is why I was shocked to see her wearing a pair of sweatpants pulled down to her thighs. The outfit mishap probably happened because the scene was supposed to be shot from the waist up, so Blake assumed she could get away with being a little more comfortable behind the scenes. After all, she was often seen in sweats and UGG boots while filming the show. Keep reading to see the mistake documented on TikTok and take a look back at Blake wearing sweats on set.
