I was super excited when I read the title “
Pretty Petty in Pink” and I was majorly let down. Not that the episode wasn’t good, but I thought it was kind of a missed opportunity not to reference one of the best teen movies of all time. Oh, well — we got a lot of pink!
And a lot of annoying Serena. I find her insufferable. Having Blair finally call her on her needy bullshit was the best part of this episode. And that Marchesa dress was super ugly, right? I wonder why she left her Spazooie behind? And ‘ugh’ for the cousin too.

Lily’s gown may not have been one of her finest — too many frills and pleats — but she was all sass this episode. The nerve of Nate’s mom! C’mon, lady, your husband is way sketchier than all the Van Der Woodsen/Rhodes clan combined! Plus, anytime Lily sports a chignon and drop earrings, I’m sold.

And finally, the beautiful Blair, in a fluffy and princess-y Oscar de la Renta, who after all this time is enjoying being the centre of everyone’s affections. But I feel the whole Chuck/Dan/Prince thing is going to get so rushed. There are only three episodes left and they are not giving Dan a proper chance (can you tell I’m really into him?). Of course, I want her to end up with Chuck eventually, but they should keep that for the series finale (next year, I think).

I look forward to Blair playing “the Commoner” next week while meeting the Grimaldis. Remember, she didn’t even make the “American Royalty” book. Ouch! But how very topical, Royal Wedding and all.
I don’t want to spoil anything but Blair will be stepping it up style-wise for the next three episodes. We’re talking Alexis Mabille Couture here! There are a lot of balls the girl has to get to!
You know you love me.
PS. Does Vanessa just walk around aimlessly apologising to people? Beats me.
