Serena van der Woodsen may have been Gossip Girl’s it-girl, but we all know it was really Blair Waldorf who ran the Upper East Side. Fierce, smart and cunning, she knew how to manipulate, scheme and backstab with the best of them to get what she wanted. However, under her tough exterior, she possessed a fragility and a burning desire for someone to love her for her. Even in the books the show was based on, she was my favorite character, because, unlike some of the other ones, she had layers and was determined to achieve all the goals she set for herself. Sure, sometimes life would knock her down, but Blair would always pick up her Prada, dust off her Dior, and keep on going in her Jimmy Choos. (Plus, she was a petite brunette like me.) We all may have wanted Serena’s wardrobe, but we all wanted to be Blair.
