    I Ranked The Fashion From The “Gossip Girl” Reboot Episode 8, From "Unforgivable" To "Absolute Genius"

    "She's truly unreal and we're not worthy to gaze upon her."

    Welcome back, Upper East Siders! Long time no see! It feels like just yesterday that we dove back into the chaotic lives of Manhattan's elite and the questionable fashion choices they make.

    The CW

    Well, let’s not just sit around. Let's jump into the looks from Episode 8: "Posts on a Scandal."

    14. Wendy's floral disaster dress:

    I really need to talk to the show's costume designers, because I feel like they're bullying this character at this point. This dress is so ugly that my eyes hurt just looking at it. It looks like they took down some curtains, sewed them together, and said, "sure." -50/10, why do they keep putting her in these dresses?!

    13. Obie's sad boi turtleneck:

    The saddest part about this look is that someone else (his mom) probably picked it out for him and he STILL chose to wear this on national television. Good job, Dan Humphrey 2.0.

    12. Nick's crisp work attire:

    HBO

    He's just so handsome. I mean, what? I don't have a crush on him, you do. SHUT UP!

    11. Kate's stressed walking fit:

    She looks so good for a woman who's wrestling with the morality of bullying children online.

    10. Kate's casual castaway look:

    HBO

    True, her entire project was stolen by bored and vindictive teachers, but Ms. Kate held it down in the fashion department, at least. Also, I love this jacket so much!

    9. Zoya's grungy uniform:

    We're back with the one strap look, yes!! Plus, this yellow flannel really works with the skirt, and I think the little neck tie is so adorable.

    8. Julien's velvet sweatsuit dream:

    This look is such a '00s throwback and I couldn't love it more. There's no one who was born after 1996 who didn't own at least one of these sweatsuits.

    7. Monet's badass letterman jacket:

    Welcome back, queen! This jacket is so dope, and of course she paired it with a studded choker. What an icon.

    6. Julien's patchy sweater dress:

    HBO

    A trend I've noticed on this show is a lot of clothing pieces seem to have random patches on it (I'm looking at you, Max's wool baseball coat). But the fringed patches really work on this otherwise simple dress.

    5. Monet and Luna's matching white uniforms:

    Monet Hann wears a long sleeve shirt tucked into a dark skirt and knee length socks. Luna La wears an oversized knit sweater over a button up shirt with a dark skirt
    HBO

    I know I've gotten comments in the past saying, "It's not matching because they're wearing uniforms." Well, to that I say, have you SEEN these uniforms?! They're not the same at all. So, it seems like a conscious decision for these besties to match part of their school looks together. Boom, case dismissed.

    4. Zoya's pastel paisley jacket:

    I wish I could explain how much I love this jacket, but words could never do it justice. 40/10, can someone please find me the link for this?!

    3. Monet's plaid party fit:

    WHY CAN'T WE SEE THE ENTIRETY OF THESE DRESSES?! WHY TEASE US WITH THE TOP HALF?! WHY, GOSSIP GIRL, WHY?!

    2. Luna's luscious lizard look:

    Luna La wears a lizard skin dress with a cut out on the side
    HBO

    First, I absolutely love bangs on her. Second, SHE HAS NO RIGHT TO LOOK THIS GOOD. Luna La is truly unreal and we're not worthy to gaze upon her.

    1. And finally, Julien's slick cheetah dress:

    HBO

    Yes, her dress is super cute and works so well with her skin tone. But the real star of this look is the jewel pattern on her head. It's such a statement piece and really shows that having a shaved head doesn't mean you can't rock something fun up top.

    See you for the next episode, darlings!
