TV’s hottest show is back. Gossip Girl started its second season as the most provocative and wildly popular teen drama show on the air. With a perfect mixture of edginess, drama, and sexiness the show exploded into the pop culture consciousness and the characters and plot just gets better and better…
“Never Been Marcused” - Episode 2
“The Dark Night “ (September 15, 2008) Hottie Nate struggles between his feelings for Vanessa (Jessica Szohr) and his more-complicated-by-the-day relationship with Catherine. Jenny (Taylor Momsen) risks losing her internship when she is caught critiquing one of Eleanor Waldorf ‘s designs. Alex Woo jewelry was worn by several of the cast members. The Little Luck Horseshoe and Sweni Earrings were worn by Vanessa. Jenny was wearing Alex Woo’s Little Faith Peace Dove and her dad’s date was wearing the Vida Pendant!
“Bonfire of the Vanity” (November 11, 2008) Blair (Leighton Meester) does not approve of the new man, Cyrus Rose (hilarious guest star Wallace Shawn), in her mother’s life, so she makes it her mission to break up the lovebirds by any means necessary. Throughout the episode, she is seen wearing her “signature B & W” jewelry from Alex Woo.
5th Annual Lucky Shops – VIP Shopping Party
Leighton Meester and Jessica Szohr
At the ultimate shopping event featuring Lucky’s favorite designers and shops, host and Gossip Girl Leighton Meester with fellow co-star hottie Jessica Szohr stopped by to chat with Alex Woo and check out her latest collections (see photo left). Leighton, described by Lucky as “TV’s best-dressed new star” wore a cute one-shoulder black and magenta ruffled floral print dress by Marc Jacobs along with a pair of black Roman gladiator-style heels. Jessica sported a stylish black v-neck top teamed with a pair of black loose-fitting trousers and matching black shoes. Alex Woo added that “in person Leighton looks even more beautiful and radiant than she does on TV!”
Last year, over 10,000 shoppers (from 35 different states!) flocked to NYC to attend. All event proceeds go to the Robin Hood charity to support innovative poverty-fighting organizations.
Get the Look: Alex Woo’s gold Sweni pendant is a perfect piece to wear on a daily basis. The Sweni horn pendant which lies on a delicate chain, is easy to wear with any outfit. While the piece adds an extra touch to really liven up any outfit, the piece isn’t overpowering. It also makes for a great layering piece.
In Front: Alternative Metals
$1,500 – $5,000
Brass and bronze, two metal options that date back to ancient times, are revamped by today’s designers. They are also reworking copper and gunmetal. The result: gutsy statement pieces that bring together fine and fashion jewelry in one look. Take this perfect example from Alex Woo.
Plain geometry is shown with an unexpected twist in the cool tonal play of gunmetal and diamonds. Both the pendant and hoop earring are designed with a subtle styling for an easy-going, elegant look.
