How to Look Like Blair Waldorf in 7 steps!!

1.It's all about how you pull things off. You don't have to have brown eyes and be a brunette to look like Blair.

2.HAIR: Blair almost always wears her longish brown hair down in loose, polished waves, with lots of volume and shine. But she also sometimes wears it either pin straight or curly. Any of these looks are possible to achieve using a curling iron, straightener, or hot rollers. Never fry your hair! If your hair is naturally wavy, score. Use smoothing serums. If you don't want to use these, try some of the shampoos for that hair type. These only prepare your hair for the following styling, not completely transform it.

 3.BODY: During the first couple books, Blair is bulimic, but that is totally not recommended. Just eat the right foods and keep your indulgences to a healthy minimum. You can also exercise to keep your body toned. Blair has great legs, arms, and abs, and within a few weeks, you can have those too.You can follow a magazine workout (like Seventeen or CosmoGirl), but make sure you totally follow it because a little cheating can mess it all up. You can also try yoga, gymnastics, aerobics, pretty much every sport!

4.STYLE: Blair's style is very preppy, classy, and tasteful. She likes collars, shirts, and bows. No matter what her outfit is, Blair always adds a pop of color to it in some way. She might add orange tights to her navy uniform, a bright red coat over a black dress, etc.... Blair also hardly ever wears denim. She always wears skirts, dresses, tights, but never jeans. Another signature look is tights. Tights, tights, tights. In the winter months, she likes to wear lots of tights, and even sometimes in the summer months, or just when the mood comes to her. A few eye catching accessories don't hurt (big pearl earrings, jewelery with bows, diamonds, scarves, brooches). It's all about keeping your clothing choices harmonious with each other. Blair wears designer clothes because her mother is a designer. Make sure your clothing choices don't look too cheap- of course, they can actually be cheap, but no one should be able to tell!


5.Blair loves headbands. She will wear headbands in anyform. Get a lot of headbands and rock them! If you can't buy any, tie colored ribbons into your hair. Big or small, headbands are a must. See the picture- a headband collage.

6.SOCIAL LIFE: Blair has a close group of friends and a popular best friend (Serena van der Woodsen). She loves partying.
  • Blair is the Queen Bee (or Queen B, in Blair's case) of Constance Billard's "It" Clique. Get a clique and a best friend to rule it with (but beware of cat fights, as Serena and Blair always compete for the title of Queen Bee). Have a designated place to hang with your clique (they hang at the steps of the MET).

7.MAKEUP: Blair wears very neutral, neat makeup. Use neutral eye shadows, mascara, blush, and a red or pink lip. Consider looking into a good concealer for dark circles under your eyes and to cover up annoying blemishes. Make sure your eyebrows are neatly groomed, but still soft and natural. For special occasions, either play up your eyes or your lips. Blair never looks overdone. Blair always has the perfect pout, so lip glosses and balms are your best friends.
