It made perfect sense for Serena van der Woodsen to keep up appearances at the Chanel pre-Fall 2019 show on the Upper East Side. The Metropolitan Museum of Art of which Karl Lagerfeld staged his latest spectacle was indeed the same spot Serena and Blair often had lunch breaks while attending Constance Billard School For Girls.
But back to reality. Blake Lively was a shimmering vision as she walked down the steps of the Met Museum dressed in a sparkly mini that surely rivalled Kim Kardashian’s Versace number from yesterday’s show across town. (Lively was there too with a corkscrew curl). Teamed with white boots and a cropped, belted jacket, Lively truly had a Serena moment on these steps six years since Gossip Girl’s finale.
