Fashion and gossip goes hand in hand. It’s not a coincidence that some of the most iconic on-screen fashion moments derive from teenage high-school flicks. Whether it’s Mean Girls, Clueless, Heathers or the Gossip Girl series – it seems like the most vicious characters tend to have the best wardrobes. What would the world look like if they all existed in the same universe? We’re pretty sure they would be best friends, even though they would hate each other.
You know how Linda Evangelista doesn’t get out of bed for less than $10,000 a day? Well, Regina asks for £11,000. A sleeper during the day, and a model during the night, Regina takes style cues from her personal icon and imaginary godmother – Paris Hilton. For another day in bed, she tucked her RED Valentino stripy t-shirt into her Coach leather mini, and threw on her favourite pink Agnona cardigan. In case she has to go to the toilet, she slips on her glittery Charlotte Olympia Mary-Janes, and if a ray of sunshine peeks through her blinds, the pink-tinted Ray-Bans will do the job. What does she keep in her tiny black leather Diane Von Furstenberg backpack? No one knows, but it’s probably something pink.
After launching her digital wardrobe app, Cher became a world-known style icon famous for her ability to mix the most eclectic prints and colours. On colder occasions, she wears her red patent leather Creatures of The Wind dress over her 3.1. Phillip Lim roll neck, finishing her look off with a pair of multi-print Paula Cademartori ankle boots and her favourite Charlotte Olympia daisy bag. Even though her fiancée Josh was never on the varsity team, she still has a thing for sporty bomber jackets. For this season, she went for the purple one from Just Cavalli - mainly for the leopard-print details.
Winter is Blair’s absolute enemy. The only thing that can keep her warm during the cold days is her gold brocade Simone Rocha coat, which she tends to wear with her electric blue David Koma skirt and a pink Rochas jumper. When she’s not in bed, she’s running her vintage designer e-tail platform where she sells her mother’s old Vuittons and Chanels, Blair takes her fur shoes out and grabs a skinny Martini at the London Edition. These Natasha Zinko ones were a gift from her boyfriend who knows how to treat a princess. Her favourite activity? It has to be riding in her pink Mercedes SLK, obviously with the roof down so her printed Diane Von Furstenberg head scarf floats in the air just like Marilyn’s did.
Everyone loves Heather. She’s never been told off or proved wrong – mostly thanks to her big smile and a persuasive character. Nurturing the image of a Goodie Two-Shoes, Heather likes her daily looks to always contain elements of her old boarding school uniform. A black silk shirt from Coach under her Club Monaco wool jumper clearly say prim and proper, while the Rag & Bone wool check skirt and her Jimmy Choo feather shoes bring out her naughty side. She doesn’t really need to wear her Miu Miu prescription glasses, but she wants to make sure everyone knows she’s a hair industry mogul who means business. Her miniature curling foam dazed the world a few years back - mainly for its ability to fit into any bag. Even her tiny white Coach 1941 saddle bag can hold 5 at a time.
Special thanks to the London Edition hotel.
